Scott’s Sandwich Café: A place of his own in Ely

ELY– For Gary Scott, operating a bistro of his own has been on small step after another. From helping customers behind the counter to running the kitchen and creating his restaurant’s menu and building a following, he’s got the years of experience and kitchen hands of a professional.
Scott worked in pizza restaurants for years, managing, delivering, baking pies and cleaning up, but always for somebody else.
So after getting out of food service for a brief period when he worked in a Cedar Rapids foundry, he went back to school to learn the hospitality business at Kirkwood Community College.

Hawk Talk

This is the second part of a two-part story on Trisha Nesbitt and Jaime Printy.

Jaime Printy was having an All-Big Ten year before she went down with a season-ending knee injury against Wisconsin.
Jaime was leading the team in scoring (16.9), steals (2.0) and free throw percentage (.888).
The game was at Wisconsin and I remember listening to it on the radio. There was only 36 seconds left in overtime and Iowa was leading 81-77 when Jaime was fouled.
I knew it was a hard foul but thought she was okay because she was shooting free throws.
