Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • Viable, in double digits, and not peaking early
    Anyone who follows politics with even a challenged attention span can quickly summon from memory banks the basics of the 1960 presidential debates: Nixon sweating, Kennedy charming. 
  • All parties to blame in Texas high school football incident
    It’s a story that has swept the sports world the past few weeks. And if you saw the video, you were appalled, upset and altogether confused. A pair of football players from John Jay High School in San Antonio, Texas blindsided an official amid the fourth quarter of a Sept. 4 game against Marble Falls. 
  • The scourged and the sought
    Tyson Fresh Meats’ decision to permanently cease beef-packing operations at its Denison plant in August jettisoned some 400 workers, many of them Latino immigrants with varying degrees of language proficiency and connections to Iowa. 
  • The refugee crisis and American politics
    As we watch the horrific refugee crisis unfolding in Europe we should scrutinize the bigger picture and lessons to be learned from this daunting situation. 
  • When will this all end?
    As if it weren’t bad enough having to sweat through a rainy summer and put up with 17 Republicans and at least five Democrats running for president, now we have Donald Trump. 
  • Iowa really ought to give Kasich a try
    We have all read about The Donald marching through the Iowa State Fair with great bravado, evoking viral images of The Music Man leading 76 Trumpets and Trombones down the main street of River City, Iowa. 
  • We can’t recall ever covering a cross-ward dispute in Carroll. Never. Not once.

  • The 63rd installment of the Iowa-Iowa State football rivalry commences on Saturday in Ames. The two programs will play for the Cy-Hawk Trophy, which looks like it can also be purchased on SkyMall. (Seriously, what the hell is that thing?) But I’m not here to ridicule the trophy, I don’t have enough space for that. 
  • Forcing fat jokes on starvation diet no laughing matter
    It’s one of those moments that cements a friendship, reveals character in a longtime pal, makes you happy to be riding shotgun in his car. 
  • Fiorina shows fraud of alleged ‘pro-life’ movement
    Anti-abortion candidates like Carly Fiorina apparently don’t have much confidence in their ability to prevail. 
  • Doubling down on the euphoria
    Ten minutes before Kenny Rogers took the stage Friday at Wild Rose Jefferson, Kim Rueter, the Grand Junction ag-business who hatched the idea of a casino in Jefferson and made the initial pitch to owner Gary Kirke, chatted back stage with Rogers. 
  • Local baseball season accompanied by series of impactful injuries
    As the baseball regular season dwindled and the postseason came around, there was a common theme that manifested when talking with coaches in the postgame. Injuries. And there were a lot of them this season among Daily Times Herald coverage area teams. What’s more, they weren’t just the run-of-the-mill bumps and bruises that are to be expected from a season. Many were significant and of the season-ending variety. 
  • Grassley: Trump shows humility in private
    Only minutes into a town hall in Carroll Saturday morning, U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, interrupted a compliment on his longevity and consistency of service from Dr. Walter Anneberg. 
  • The ‘Ames Strain’ again — this time  it’s Donald Trump
    Hillary Clinton said it best, “Basta - - Enough!”  You don’t even have to be a fan of Hillary to agree with this condemnation of Donald Trump’s  spurious remark that Sen. John McCain “was a war hero ’cause he was captured.  I like people that weren’t captured.” 
  • Reflections on the Iowa Democratic Party’s  Hall of Fame Dinner
    A unified Iowa Democratic Party came together Friday night in Cedar Rapids to share their message of forward-thinking prosperity, equality and opportunity, and to hear, for the first time, that message articulated by all five of their  presidential candidates for 2016.
