Coach hopes a year of success translates to track at West High

IOWA CITY– The West High Trojans track and field team hopes to capitalize on the success seen on the football field and basketball court.

Martz has nine years with the program and is assisted by Neil Davis (sprints, hurdles, long jump), Travis Craig (distance) and Maureen Head (throws). The team compiled a 52-7 record in 2011, taking second in the MVC Valley Division.

TIFFIN— Woody Guthrie lives.
The Iowa Theatre Artists Company (ITAC) brought the story and music of Guthrie to their stage in Amana in 2011, and it quickly became their most popular production with frequent sell-outs.

Food For Thought

A recent study seems to provide evidence that what most pet owners have long suspected may be true. Your dog can read your mind. By watching the right side of your face (where your emotions are reflected) and gazing into your eyes, canines evidently are able to discern what you are thinking. Several examples of such talent were cited to support this claim, though one, at least, points to a more mystical explanation.
