IOWA CITY– Local author Don Lund of North Liberty will be promoting his book “No Hands, No Feet No Problem?” as part of the Jones Harvest Publishing Book Tour at the Iowa City Book Festival Saturday, July 16, at 10 a.m. at Gibson Square next to the University of Iowa Library in Iowa City.

IOWA CITY — Green and yellow streamers and chalked tributes marked the sidewalk down to the diamond. “Alise #15” was chalked on the roof of the visitors’ dugout. At first glance, one would think it was shortstop Alise Miller’s birthday.
Actually it was Senior Night, and Miller is the only senior on West’s young varsity softball team.
The Women of Troy disposed of the Waterloo East Trojans 11-7 and 5-1.
In game one, the East Trojans scored one run in the top of the fourth inning, four in the fifth and two in the seventh.
IOWA CITY — When West High meets City High in football it’s “The Battle for the Boot.” In volleyball, “The Spike” is on the line. When these two schools meet on the baseball diamond only pride and bragging rights are at stake, but that’s okay with the guys in green.
For the second year in a row, the Trojans reigned supreme over their cross town rivals in a two-day doubleheader.

They said it right there on the six o’clock news - “A college education is no longer worth the cost.” Then, they added the information that the average student graduates from college with $17,000 of debt. Doesn’t sound like so much to me – the price of a new car, and not an extravagantly luxurious one at that. Still, quite a bit more than my Social Security checks amount to over a year. Definitely nothing to sneeze at.
