    Megan Beardmore never wondered what she would be when she grew up. Her father always said she would cure autism, and his words rang in her heart. But Megan no longer believes individuals with autism need a “cure.” 
  • Sound Decision

    It’s easy for David Martin to sing the praises of Carroll Community Chorus.

  • Family Ties

    The signs at the home of Ben and Rebecca Dose and their four children say a lot. The  “Bless Our Home” sign on a living-room wall tells you about their faith. Ben has been pastor at Zion Lutheran Church, next door to their home on the north side of Arcadia, since April 2008.

  • An Oscar contender on the Muddy Mo

  • 'Walking on air'
    They expected only one landmark in their lives. And Marla Cattermole and Julie Lobur got it in 2009, when they were one of the first same-sex couples to get married in Iowa, soon after the Iowa Supreme Court overturned the state’s gay-marriage ban. 
  • Local veterans see their memorials

    When 16-year-old Coral Deal died in a car accident on her way home from junior orientation at East Sac County High School on Aug. 12, she left behind a room already 3/4 full of hats, gloves, diapers and toys to give to families on Angel trees during the upcoming Christmas season.

    Blessed with fertile ground, good weather and many helping hands, a place called “God’s Garden” has lived up to its name this year. 
  • Blooming beauties
    A few miles east of town, Tom and Pat Simons relax on a dock a few hundred yards from their home, admiring the 2-acre field of wildflowers blazing across a terrace. In past years, the field has been overwhelmingly purple. This year, it trends toward yellow. The compass point — Pat’s favorite — rotates its delicate petals slowly throughout the day, following the path of the sun.
  • Miracle Man
