IowaWORKS Job Fair Oct. 20

CEDAR RAPIDS– IowaWORKS is hosting a job fair on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 5-7 p.m. at the Cedar Rapids IowaWORKS center in the lower level of Lindale Mall under Younkers (4444 1st Ave. NE, Cedar Rapids).

Food For Thought

My children grew up quite a few years ago, and looking back, I realize that I didn’t exactly suffer from the so-called empty nest syndrome. For the most part, I had plenty of other uses for those vacated bedrooms. The first priority was to refurbish and furnish an inviting, comfortable guest room so that guests no longer had to suffer on the fold-out sofa or fold themselves into the extra bunk-bed in my son’s cluttered room.

Walkin'

(This is a continuation of a story about ghosts in my apartment. The year is 1986 and my daughters have just found a gun in some garbage tossed from an apartment next door, the haunted apartment we are about to occupy after being vacated by Joe upon his death.

Hawk Talk

I know Northwestern has only beaten Iowa three years in a row (right, Stacy?) but it seems like it’s been 30 years since Iowa has knocked off the Wildcats.
2002 was the last time the Hawks won in Iowa City over the ‘Cats so Saturday’s 41-31 victory at Kinnick Stadium was big time– sort of like getting the 900-pound gorilla off Iowa’s back.
I’ve said this before about not liking night games at Kinnick.
The good part was the crowd was electric, the card display was really cool and the Hawkeyes played great.

Hawk Talk

Fran McCaffery enters his second season as Iowa’s head basketball coach with at least three things going for him.
1. More experience;
2. More talent;
3. More depth.
The Hawkeyes have six players that started last year, including senior guards Matt Gatens (6-5, 215) and Bryce Cartwright (6-1, 188).
Matt is one of the best free throw shooters ever to play at Iowa, and Bryce, who didn’t even start the first couple of games, led the Big Ten in assists.
