Lions, elephants, black rhinos, water buffaloes and leopards - oh my!
  • The Future of Everything
    It’s one of those movie scenes you know even if you’ve never actually seen the movie — a young Dustin Hoffman is taken aside in “The Graduate” and given some career advice by a middle-aged man in a business suit. 
  • Badding leaves ‘indelible footprint’

    Badding Construction CEO and founder Bob Badding, a businessman-philanthropist whose family firm built much of Carroll, passed away late Monday morning at St. Anthony Regional Hospital — a medical center Badding guided — wing by wing, renovated floor by new section — through dramatic structural growth over decades.

  • To protect and to preserve
    After 23 years of being a cop at the halfway point between New York City and Boston, there’s something therapeutic about affixing glass eyes to a dead deer or air-brushing a little natural green back onto the head of a decapitated alligator. 
  • Oklahoma!

    OK! Let the wind come sweepin’ down the plain — and across the Carroll Recreation Center stage as Kuemper Catholic High School this weekend presents the classical musical “Oklahoma!”

  • An insider’s look at the old Cuba before it becomes a new nation
    Getting to Cuba before the island nation is totally open to all the United States is special to me as the landscape of this fascinating, colorful and controversial geography will be changed by investments from our country. 
  • ‘There’s no such thing as a bad kid’
    Bill Evans, an iconic Carroll educator, role model, veteran of the Pacific Theater in World War II and former Iowa Athlete of the Year who was one of the first college basketball players in the nation to use a behind-the-back dribble in games, left an inspiring legacy of sportsmanship and a my-brother’s-keeper approach to life, say those who eulogized him Saturday. 
  • Trinity Radio nearing 10th anniversary
    While reception for the Catholic radio station KYMJ 103.1 FM may not carry more than about 10 miles from Carroll, it still packs a lot of power. 
    Pearly gates guarded by a saint. Chubby cherubs with harps. Streets of gold. 
  • Eight is Great
    The wait made South Central Calhoun’s first-place finish in the Iowa High School Jazz Championships a little sweeter, SCC Band Director Tom Plummer said after Tuesday night’s finals at the Des Moines Convention Center. 
  • Native bluebirds are focus of woodworker’s project
    A flicker of blue wings over the browns of dried grass and bare trees offers one of the first colors of spring: The bluebirds are returning. 
  • Carroll County farmers should sue the Swiss seed producer Syngenta for selling a genetically modified version of corn in 2013 and 2014 that China refused to import, according to a Manning native who is now an attorney in Minnesota. 
  • The wild, in-focus
    When people of a certain age learn that Matt Wetrich is a naturalist, they tend to instantly picture a guy out communing with nature — maybe a staff in his hand and a white-breasted nuthatch perched on his shoulder. 
  • The Legacy of Mighty Maddox

    Maddox Starmer was dealt a lousy break. Born with multiple heart defects, he made it only 66 days from the day he was born Oct. 13, 2013, to when he passed away on Dec. 19. But for such a short life, Maddox has left a powerful impact. It’s evident that he deserved the “Mighty Maddox” nickname when events were promoted to raise money to help his parents, Matt and Melissa Starmer of Audubon, with their mountain of medical bills.

  • Young bowler’s dream comes true

    Fourteen-year-old Matt Brauckman of Carroll was thrilled several weeks ago to meet his professional-bowling hero, Walter Ray Williams Jr.
