Going bananas

I’ve been helping my friend Lois Muehl put together a book of poetry she’s written over the past few years. This isn’t her first book, or even her first book of poetry, as she’s been writing for most of her ninety-three years, having sold her first effort at age eight. A retired professor of rhetoric at the University of Iowa, she has published scholarly works, magazine articles, light verse, children’s stories, travel pieces– you name it. You’ve probably chuckled over some of her short witticisms that, over the years, appeared in The Readers’ Digest and other publications.

The city was installing a new pipe connection Friday afternoon when they needed to shut off the water to complete the work. About 500 to 600 residents and businesses are affected.
The city expects to complete repairs, restore water pressure and flush the lines Friday evening. However, the boil advisory will remain in effect until the city can collect and test water samples.

IOWA CITY– Two out of three ain’t bad.
That’s how the West High Trojans did in three games at home in a double-header with Cedar Rapids Prairie and a single with the Regals of Iowa City Regina. West split with the Prairie Hawks Monday evening (June 10) before a win over the Regals on Tuesday (June 11).
A six-run rampage by Prairie sealed the 8-4 loss in the opener Monday evening in a game that saw Tanner Wilson hit a double. Ezra Reiners had three hits; Declan Doyle and Colin Baker both had two hits. Sam Scott worked six innings on the mound striking-out six.
