Color me blue

Walkin'

I’ve been feeling a little blue this week.
It all started when I came across a video posted on Facebook that really set me off. The clip was taken by an anonymous bystander in a store of what is presumably a mother and her 4-year-old. The preschooler is acting horribly, throwing a foul-mouthed tantrum because she wants something she can’t have. A store employee or manager steps in to intervenes and keeps the child from grabbing what it wants. The woman and child are black. A sloppily-dressed bystander is also black. The man intervening is white.

Ho-hum in the kitchen

Food For Thought

Can’t think of anything to fix for supper? Tired of the same-old, same-old in the lunch bag? What to take for that family reunion potluck? Having trouble even making out a grocery list? Join the club. After 65 years of keeping house and putting meals on the table, there seems to be nothing new or tempting left to try. And then, a strange thing happens and cooking becomes an adventure once again.

Liberty girls fall, 3-0, to CV Christian

ALBURNETT– As storms crept ever closer, the Liberty High Lightning fell, 3-0, to the 15th-ranked team in Class 1A, the Huskies of Cedar Valley Christian (CVC). The Huskies, a shared program between CVC and Alburnett High School, brought a 9-0 record into the Tuesday, May 1, contest in Alburnett. The Bolts, unranked by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, were 2-5.

2018 CCA softball preview

Still young, but more experienced

OXFORD– Last year the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity girls softball team faced two challenges. First, Matt Trosky took the helm of the program in the wake of the departure of Barb Lynn after three seasons. Lynn returned to coaching the Iowa City West High varsity this year. And second, they were a young team with only two seniors (Claire Navara and Abbi Kinnaird), and a freshman (Raina Henze) and eighth grader (Peyton Graft) pitching. The Creek Girls finished the season at 14-26.

IOWA CITY– One week to the day after competing in the 109th Drake Relays, Bailey Nock was a triple-winner for the Iowa City West High Women of Troy as they won the Mississippi Valley Conference (MVC) Mississippi Division meet on their home track Friday, May 4.

West defeats City, 8-1

Women of Troy defeat Little Hawks and J-Hawks

IOWA CITY– Iowa City West High’s varsity girls (including players from Clear Creek Amana, Mid-Prairie and Liberty High) remained undefeated on the tennis courts after knocking off rival City High and the J-Hawks of Cedar Rapids Jefferson.
The Women of Troy wore “Live Like Line” T-shirts in honor of the late Caroline Found Tuesday, May 1, as they met the Little Hawks at the University of Iowa’s Tennis Complex for their annual dual meet. Dr. Ernie Found (Caroline’s father) was honored for his continuing support of West High athletics, including the tennis program. West defeated City, 8-1.

Trojans give Prairie Hawks their first loss

West’s Frisbie scores in double OT, 2-1

CEDAR RAPIDS– The Iowa City West High varsity Trojans handed Cedar Rapids Prairie its first loss of the season on Monday, April 30, at Prairie’s John Wall Stadium with a 2-1 win in sudden death overtime (OT).
The win dipped the Prairie Hawks to 7-1 and improved West’s record to 8-3.
Prairie struck first with a long-ball goal in the 30th minute by Matthew Walter. Shortly after, Gada Ambo tied the match with a cross kick from the right side into the back corner of the Prairie net. A stalemate ensued through the rest of the first half and all of the second half leading to overtime.

Intersection closure: Cherry Street east of Ranshaw Way

NORTH LIBERTY– Beginning Wednesday, May 9, Cherry Street is closed just east of Ranshaw Way. The closure is required so crews can reconstruct the east side of the intersection.
The contractor is required to limit the length of the closure, and expects the work to last about three weeks.
During the closure, traffic will be detoured along Penn and Stewart streets. All businesses will remain open.
The Cherry Street underpass will remain open until Monday, May 14, when it is expected to close for four days.

Cherry and Front streets get a four-way stop

NORTH LIBERTY– For years, the intersection of Cherry and Front streets has been the subject of much discussion, debate – and frustration – with regular requests to turn it into a four-way stop.
However, a past study by the Metropolitan Planning Organization of Johnson County (MPOJC), which the City of North Liberty relies on for help analyzing and planning for traffic, found that accident rates and traffic volumes were both low and the intersection didn’t justify changes. This study is available on northlibertyiowa.org.

Brewing with Dunn Brothers

Cafe opens south of Forevergreen Road

CORALVILLE– Between the morning rush to get out the door and the push to get through traffic, there are few greater needs than to be fully caffeinated. With a new coffee shop in town, those needs are being fully taken care of. Alexandra and DeAngelo Seay moved to the Corridor to pursue their goal of creating a place to bring family and friends together over a delicious cup of coffee. They achieved this goal by opening their own franchise location for Dunn Brothers Coffee.
