Still the best!

CEDAR RAPIDS– All season long, the West High Women of Troy volleyball team had two phrases they lived by: Live Like Line and Remember Us. The first was a tribute to friend and teammate Caroline Found (nicknamed “Line”), who died in a moped accident in August. The second was a message to fans, friends and foes alike. It was not a question, it was a statement: “Remember us; we’re coming back to state.” Not only did the team overcome its grief to dominate the regular season as the top-ranked team in Class 4A, the Women of Troy made it to the state tournament for the fourth year in a row.

Food For Thought

Eight years after the Nov. 11, 1918, signing of the armistice that ended the fighting in Europe after the first World War, Armistice Day became an official national holiday. Its intention was to honor the veterans of that war, as well as those who had lost their lives in what was then known as the Great War. In 1954, the holiday was renamed Veterans Day to include the veterans of World War II and Korea, Today, we honor, officially or unofficially, the veterans of all wars and military conflicts.
