It started as instinct. I was 10. I didn't have the words to summon an explanation.
  • Beware what you run from, Iowa
    Joni Ernst is on the verge of cashing in the winning ticket on a crazy bet. 
  • Ernst and Braley: Bread bags and badly injured dad
    A 16-year-old Buena Vista County farm kid died last week in a farming accident. The story led the Sept. 24 issue of The Storm Lake Times. The young man perished near Truesdale when he lost his footing trying to clear a piece of machinery that had been plugged while harvesting corn, the newspaper reported. 
  • Details, dodges and dreams

    Check the transcript. The word-for-word accounting of Iowa Public Television’s 3rd District Congressional debate Thursday in Council Bluffs is remarkably revealing.

  • Sarah Palin, Joni Ernst’s political jukebox hero
    Political question of the day for Iowans: What’s worse, being Sarah Palin, or wanting to be like Sarah Palin? 
  • Stolen nights and places in between
    It started as instinct. I was 10. I didn't have the words to summon an explanation. 
  • How can Koch-bottled Ernst be 'philosophically opposed' to what's right for Iowa?
    About the only thing Gov. Terry Branstad didn't do one recent Wednesday for energy production in west-central Iowa was to check the porch bulbs or flip on the night lights for residents himself in Glidden and Coon Rapids before leaving the region. 
  • Move to rural Iowa, our days are longer
    As a former resident of the Washington, D.C., area I did the commute thing - for four years. I recall these days each time I visit from Iowa. 
  • Is Carroll ready for transatlantic bicycle adaptation?
    A few years ago, I was in San Luis Obispo, California, headed down a one-way street to visit the historic Spanish mission. I was in a right turning lane that fed the mission and had a green light. I turned right and nearly hit a bicyclist in a right bike lane that ran adjacent to the road. 
  • Joni Ernst, meet your Snake River Canyon
    With all that bread-bagging of shoes and hog castrating on the farm, life for a young Joni Ernst surely didn't afford a lot of time for leisurely television. 
  • Masterful and measured
    David Young, who showed he could spin a good joke and is blessed with a king's ransom of wit, told Republican 3rd Congressional District convention delegates Saturday that Washington, D.C., is obsessed with celebrity, that the nation's capital has turned into "Hollywood for ugly people." 
  • Skanks and hags and Wonder Bread bags
    I consider Facebook in much the same way I do public restrooms. Yes, I could make other arrangements, but in modern America, with all the travel, and the necessity of employing millenials, I'm going to have to use both. I just try and get in and out of the social-media site and highly trafficked toilet facilities as quickly as possible. 
  • A Polk County insider earns his rural boots
    Tears rolled for many reasons as the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission approved a gambling license for Greene County in a suspense-filled session at the Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington. 
  • Say 'yes' to a collection of 
rural Iowa counties that dared
    I'm proud to serve on the Carroll and Greene county economic development corporations. I'm here today as a designated representative of the Carroll Area Development Corporation, which voted unanimously to support the Wild Rose Entertainment complex plan that's brought us all here together. 
  • Rough edges linger from Braley insult
    Perhaps no area of the state has such a celebrated agricultural history. Adair County. 
  • Really, do you think of me as a 'Holocaust' survivor?
    I'm a bastard. Not in the way you're probably thinking right now. Which is open to interpretation. But in a first-reference manner as defined by Webster's - "an illegitimate child." Which is a fact.
