Slow down, lighten up

Weight, speed limits imposed on Mehaffey Bridge

JOHNSON COUNTY– Cars should travel a little slower across Mehaffey Bridge now, and big trucks will have to detour around it until a new bridge is complete.
The Johnson County Secondary Roads department placed a weight embargo on the bridge and reduced the speed effective March 11, due to too much movement as cars were driving over the bridge that is currently under construction.

Story Time Yoga

Library brings yoga into Saturday story time

NORTH LIBERTY– Yoga is known for its physical, mental and spiritual benefits. It can increase strength, facilitate flexibility and reduce stress.
At the North Liberty Community Library, it is also helping kids get more out of books read at story time.
Youth and Teen Services Librarian Melanie Harrison and Circulation Library Emily O’Sheridan-Tabor came across the idea when attending a library conference last fall.

Clippers for the cure

TIFFIN– When Jami Tandy was diagnosed with breast cancer, she immediately received loads of support.
Her co-workers at South Slope Cooperative Communications and many friends began wearing Team Tandy buttons, complete with the requisite pink ribbon. Calls and cards and expressions of concern came pouring in. Prayers were said on her behalf.
But a completely unexpected show of solidarity came from Jami’s son and his basketball team, when they bounded onto the court sporting shaved heads and bright pink socks.

Three in a row, way to go!

DES MOINES– In 1952, the Davenport High School’s boys’ basketball team won their third consecutive state tournament championship. In 1984, the Royals of Cedar Rapids Regis achieved the “three-peat.” No other team has done that since.
Until last week, when Bergie’s Boys rolled into “The Well.”

Family Science Night

Sisters Ava and Grace Hatch work together as they prepare to make a soda can implode at Penn Elementary during the PTO-sponsored Family Science Night Feb. 21. The experiment was a demonstration of the reactions when heat and cold are applied to water inside a container. The hands-on display manned by students in the University of Iowa’s Science Education program was just one of the many stations children and families could visit to learn more about scientific principles from all realms of science.
