Mountain bike trail closure at Coralville Lake

IOWA CITY – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Coralville Lake will again be closing the Mountain bike trail at the Sugar Bottom Recreation Area beginning Dec. 1. The trail will be closed to all hikers and bicyclists for the month of December. This closure coincides with the hunting permitted in this multiple use area to increase safety awareness and reduce possible conflicts.
Visitors using other areas around Coralville Lake during the hunting season are urged to take precautionary measures such as wearing blaze orange clothing.

Out of the right depth?

TIFFIN— Clear Creek Amana (CCA) boys basketball coach Steve Ottoson is a man of few words. But the words he put on his 2011-2012 pre-season survey speak volumes to the season ahead.
The Clippers are likely in for a lot of OJT: On the Job Training.

Relax, have fun, and don’t say “cheese”

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY— We’ve all been there, the dreaded moment when having a picture taken and the photographer says “say cheese!” What results is often less than a natural smile, and something bordering on a tortured grimace made under duress. Jeanna Hegewald is on a one-woman crusade to make portraiture fun, relaxed and natural.
And don’t you dare say “cheese!” when she’s tripping the shutter.

Reconstruction bids for Sutliff Bridge well below estimate

SUTLIFF– A drop in the price of steel means a smaller price tag for rebuilding the historic Sutliff Bridge.
Tim McDermott with VJ Engineering presented the six bids his firm had received for the project at a Tuesday, Nov. 22, informal meeting of the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.
The high bid came from Taylor Construction at $2,332,327, which was close to the original estimate. The low bid, which will be formally approved at the next board meeting, came from Iowa Bridge and Culvert for $1,582,097.95.

Board fields queries from critic

IOWA CITY– The school board recently rearranged its meeting agenda, putting “Community Comment” near the top of the schedule.
At the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) Nov. 22 meeting, Phil Hemingway, a City High parent and one-time board candidate, took five minutes during time allowed for public input to make several suggestions for the district.

Rising above adversity

TIFFIN— Aaron Thomas and the students, staff and parents of the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) school district have something in common; they are familiar with trying to make sense out of senseless tragedies.
For CCA, it’s coping with the deaths of three students in three years, the most recent in October when Mackenzie Lown was killed near the high school in an accident that injured several others.
