Jack Zschiesche is home!

NORTH LIBERTY– Jack Zschiesche is home!
After 107 days in the hospital and a recovery facility, the 6-year-old from North Liberty returned home on July 3, exceeding the expectations of his physicians and therapists. Jack, nicknamed JZ by a neighbor, experienced an aneurism due to an arteriovenous malformation in his brain while on vacation with his family in Minneapolis in March. He underwent five surgeries and 15-and-a-half weeks of hospitalization and therapy before he could return home with his parents, Brad and Amy Zschiesche, and his three siblings, Drew, Cade and Lila.

Forevergreen Road study picks up where it left off

NORTH LIBERTY– The City of North Liberty is jumping back into bed with Coralville; this time, it’s a potential roadbed.

The communities will equally share the cost of a $57,000 engineering study that will determine the best alignment for the extension of Forevergreen Road eastward to North Liberty Road.

Old school, new school, and what happens between

IOWA CITY- 2016 was the optimistic date used in a May 2012 school administration report on a hypothetical “North Central High School” for Iowa City Community School District committee meetings on a new high school. The committee used University of Iowa projections that predict an increase to nearly 2,200 students at West High and 1,600 at City High in the next four years.
West High has an official capacity of 1,800 and is currently more than 100 students beyond that limit.
But West High wasn’t always crowded.
