Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • ‘Our facility has become, hands down, the worst we compete on’
    Carroll’s athletic stadium, I’ve been told, once stood as a marvel of western Iowa. When the State baseball tournament was being held next door at Merchants Park, eyes would gaze over at the football and track complex with amazement.
  • New, modern stadium is investment in Carroll’s future
    The Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand” was atop the charts, the first Ford Mustang came off the assembly line in Detroit and the nation was still recovering from President Kennedy being shot just months earlier the last time a significant investment was made in the Carroll Athletic Field in 1964.
  • Steve King’s jump-start legislation
    On the first day of the 115th Congress, U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Kiron, jump-started his legislative agenda by introducing a bushel basket of bills — bills to repeal 100 percent of Obamacare, bills to impose stricter laws on immigration, and a bill condemning a two-state solution in Israel.
  • Nov. 8, 2016: A victory for women of color
    With the ballots counted on Election Day, there were several election results that gave me hope. The winners in these particular races were Tammy Duckworth, Kamala Harris, Catherine Cortez Masto and Ilhan Omar.
  • Board president reflects on 2016
    Carroll County is blessed with many great citizens and communities.
  • Shop in the name of love for Carroll
    It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.
  • Preparing for CCSD levy vote on stadium project
    On Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017, voters in the Carroll Community School District will be asked to vote on a physical plant and equipment levy (PPEL) in order to reconstruct the current Carroll Athletic Field (Stadium). My hope is that the following frequently asked questions will clear up some of the misinformation that may be out there regarding the PPEL, if it is approved.
  • From a friend’s book, a lesson in empathy
    Soon after I moved to western Iowa, I sat in a room in late 2014 with sources, western Iowa residents, and listened as the then-recent shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri came up.
  • ‘The Birth of a Nation’ and the rebirth of the Klan
    Well, so much for that secret, “mystic order” thing.
  • Christians, we need to do better
    We Christians love to argue about theology.
  • Rod Roberts for lieutenant governor
    First things first. The news of the appointment of the nation’s longest-serving governor, Iowa’s Terry Branstad, to be ambassador to China is encouraging for a host of reasons, from national security to agricultural export opportunities to breakthroughs only possible through the sort of personal relationships Branstad has wisely cultivated over decades.
  • What Carroll Public Library can learn from its larger San Diego cousin
    Months ago, when Commercial Savings Bank board chairman Pat Moehn stood in front of the Carroll City Council and announced a “million-dollar offer” — use of the bank’s building to end a decade of deadlock and allow the city’s library to expand — he cited an unexpected inspiration.
  • 5 takes on President-elect Donald Trump
    1. Accept the results of the election, kids. Trump won. Full stop. Disgruntled millenials in Portland, Oregon, tea cuppers who crack when the microbrewery short stocks their favorite craft beer, need to learn to take a loss. The time for protest of vote totals? Election Day.
