Lions, elephants, black rhinos, water buffaloes and leopards - oh my!
  • ‘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. 

  • Bands to span generations in rock ’n’ roll event
    Almost 60 years ago, Ron Hauser was in the same spot the members of Bad Authority find themselves in now. 
  • Stories of Women’s Lives
    Kate Neese was raised by a strong woman. Her mother worked outside the home, but she always had food in the oven. 
  • Emily Stanzyk running with extra purpose
    Everything was coming together for Emily Stanzyk. Two years ago, the Willey native was combining a long visit to the Holy Land, staying with a former college friend who grew up in Bethlehem and preparing to achieve a dream-come-true in her marathon running. 
  • Sniper

    It’s been almost 47 years since Roger Carlson dropped a North Vietnamese officer with a single shot at 800 yards — almost a half-mile away.

  • The moustachioed mayor
    Mayor Harvey Dales is up before the sunshine. He makes his way to Deb’s Corner Cafe, located at the northeast corner of Fourth and Main. Two large coffee pots sit on the counter above a shelf lined with stacks of heavy navy blue mugs. A mirror covers the wall behind the low counter, reflecting the high-backed booths that line the opposite side of the restaurant. 
  • Legend goes legal
    Richard Eggers is an entrepreneur who loves what he does. And what he makes, too. The Iowa Legendary Rye co-owner and master distiller (also a master storyteller with a great sense of humor) has a ready operating philosophy about the recently legalized whiskey his Main Street distillery in Carroll is churning out.
