New directions for CCA board members

TIFFIN— It happened to our state legislators and cost us a congressman. And it’s also happening to the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) School Board of Directors.
It’s redistricting, and it could change the look of the board in 2013.
The results of the 2010 Census led to a number of political districts being redrawn, and the school board director districts are no exception. The school district is divided into four divisions: District 1 includes the Amana Colonies, District 2 has Tiffin, District 3 includes Oxford, and District 4 encompasses CCA’s portions of North Liberty and Coralville.

Teachers to get four percent pay increase

IOWA CITY– The teachers’ union collectively bargained in Iowa City last month for a 4.2 percent raise, ratifying a new contract with the Iowa City Community School District.
Iowa City Education Association bargaining representative Tom Yates, who claimed to have the power to say yes, no, or maybe as a negotiator for the teachers, said the two sides had easily reached the agreement because of their thoroughness and clarity.
“We don’t have a lot of issues of people feeling their being taken advantage of from either side,” he said.

Blues & BBQ, all hopped-up

NORTH LIBERTY– As if you need one more reason to and enjoy Iowa’s best blues music, fun family activities, fireworks and delicious, simmering barbecue.
But the sixth annual North Liberty Blues & BBQ offers one more incentive to come out and enjoy the day on Saturday, May 26.
Craft beer.
Red’s Alehouse of North Liberty is the title sponsor for the festival’s beverage garden this year, and Red’s is brining in locally-crafted microbrews, to add another level of good taste to the growing community festival.

Ancestor, inhabitant share memories of Ranshaw House

This is the second in a three-part series that examines the background, history and future of North Liberty’s historic Samuel Ranshaw House, and those working to bring it back to life.

NORTH LIBERTY– A refined cheer from a small crowd arose in the North Liberty City Council chambers last Thursday, May 3, as supporters of restoring the Ranshaw House celebrated more good news.

Dog microchipping clinic May 12

CORALVILLE– A microchip clinic will be sponsored by MidWestOne Bank and Friends of the Animal Center Foundation on Saturday, May 12, (rain or shine) from 9 a.m. until noon at MidWestOne Bank, 110 First Ave. in Coralville. Cost is $5 per dog (cash or checks only). The event is first-come, first-served and open to the public (no early birds please).

Shueyville High School alumni banquet held

SHUEYVILLE– The 121st annual Shueyville High School alumni banquet was held Friday, April 27, at the Shueyville United Methodist Church. Dinner was served at 5:30 p.m. by the Shueyville United Methodist Women.
The 60-year class of 1952 attended. Members of the class are: Marilyn Benesh Ziscovsky, Fern Kaplan Fackler, Gae Leuttijohn Castek, Howard Novotny, Kenneth Matyk, Donna Jean Slezak Palvis, Evelyn Wolf Vileta, and Roman Zach. All were present except Kenneth Matyk. His wife had a mini stroke the week before and he could not attend. Kenneth lives in Colorado.
