Public and private land trusts gaining ground

JOHNSON COUNTY– Despite rising land costs and a down economy, figures released in November 2011 show that now more than ever, people are making financial and individual commitments to preserve the nation’s natural areas for recreational use and habitat protection and to safeguard water supplies.
Data in the 2010 National Land Trust Census Report show that the total acres of land conserved by local, state and national land trusts grew by about 23 million acres in the last 10 years. Iowa showed a 22 percent increase in protected land since 2005.

A simple place to shoot the breeze

SWISHER— He did it, but he’s not really sure why.
Rob Pudil and his wife Gena recently purchased Melsha’s Tap from Loraine Melsha and renamed it Shooters on Second.
“I honestly don’t know why we did it,” Rob said. As the owner of Affordable Soft Water, he’s no stranger to running a business. He also worked in a bar back in the 1980s. “The opportunity came up (to buy the bar) but there was no rhyme or reason to it.” Rob said he shot Melsha an offer, and a month later Melsha asked Gena if he was serious.

Lucky 13s as Women of Troy reign over City

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY — The West High Women of Troy improved to 13-0, on Friday the 13th.
If B.J. Mayer’s crew was superstitious, they didn’t show it as they faced cross-town rival City High at home in front of a capacity crowd.
West edged ahead to a 17-14 lead after the first period. Ally Disterhoft put up ten of those points including a three-pointer and a free throw which had to spin around the rim several times before dropping through the net.

Perfect record, but still a ways to go, says Bergman

IOWA CITY — The West High Trojans improved to a perfect 12-0 record overall Friday night, Jan. 13 with a 66-42 win over cross-town rival City High. But coach Steve Bergman says his crew still has room to improve.
“We’re halfway through (the season) and we still have a ways to go. We may be young, but we’re experienced.” However, the coach said “that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot to work on yet, but we are getting there.”
