  • ‘She lived life at 125 percent’
    Students filled the space between the doors and the road outside the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wall Lake Tuesday. The funeral procession for Bailey Jacobsen, who died in a car crash early Saturday morning, had left for the cemetery, but the students hadn’t moved. Here and there a voice whispered softly, two or three individuals hugged and wiped away tears. 
  • Kanne takes second shot at Carroll supervisors’ open seat
    Carroll real-estate broker and appraiser Don Kanne has filed as an independent for the 2nd District Carroll County supervisors seat, setting up a rematch of the Democratic primary in the November general election. 
  • Kobergs reach world with Guthrie-made outrigger pads
    From the Koberg home to the world. That’s not the motto of Guthrie Center-based DICA Outrigger Pads. But it is the summary of a remarkable story of Iowa ingenuity for this family owned-and-operated business that’s achieved international ambitions while hewing to its rural roots. 
  • A Swan Lake fish with teeth
    Avid fisherman Don Brown of Carroll has pulled a number of different species of fish from lakes and rivers. But the one he hooked  Wednesday morning inside the Swan Lake fish house caught him by surprise. To Brown, who’s used to catching bluegills, crappies and bass at Swan Lake, the fish initially looked like a bluegill because of its orange and yellow belly, but upon closer look was unfamiliar.
  • U of I policy pro: Carroll financially strong
    Buoyed by a strong commercial and industrial base that escapes many Iowa cities, Carroll is an enviable position with a favorable tax rate and room to spend on amenities to boost the regional draw of the community, says a University of Iowa local government expert. 
  • Thriving garden aids residents in need
    Blessed with fertile ground, good weather and many helping hands, a place called “God’s Garden” has lived up to its name this year. 
  • Bootleggers film debut is a reunion of sorts
    Notes plucked from a banjo floated out from speakers throughout the Templeton Community Center Friday night, joined by a wavering male voice — “If you don’t give me rye whiskey, I surely will die...” 
  • Teen crash victim was ‘full of life’
    Bailey Jacobsen loved shopping and eating out — she was particularly fond of Mexican food at Rancho Grande restaurant in Carroll. She helped out at Doc’s Place, a family restaurant in Wall Lake. She loved spending time on the lake and with friends, who referred to her as “Bay” and “BJ.” 
  • ISU president eyes more visible role in 4-laning Highway 30
    If the chief mission of the U.S. Highway 30 Coalition of Iowa — the full four-laning of the federal route across the state — is realized, Iowa State University would be located at the nexus of two primary four-lane routes. 
  • Why should students attend Iowa State?
    For students with no planned major who are interested in a liberal-arts education, about learning who they are there, or finding that major, why should they go to Iowa State University? Iowa State is known for its strength in engineering and design and agriculture and other fields. Why is Iowa State also the place for undecided students? 
  • ISU seeks enthusiastic economic-development partners
    Research shouldn’t sit unused, said Iowa State University President Steven Leath — he’d rather see it implemented by start-ups in rural areas through partnerships between the university and regional economic-development organizations.

  • Fatal crash is second in two weeks for East Sac High
    Two East Sac County High School students died Saturday in an early-morning, alcohol-related crash — the second crash in two weeks that killed teenage girls as the new school year was underway.
    Classes there are cancelled Tuesday and Wednesday so students can attend the funerals of Bailey Jacobsen and Lindsey Quirk, both 16, of Wall Lake. 
  • 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.
