Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • King’s national  political event shows deep GOP bench
    In a single word, I would call the Iowa Freedom Summit, energizing. 
  • 20 takeaways from Steve King’s Iowa Freedom Summit
    1. Scott Walker is the real political deal. The Wisconsin governor — who went to grade school in Plainfield, Iowa — showed connectivity, policy bona fides and earnest seriousness. Walker focused effectively on education, which is where Iowans spend the majority of their state taxes. 
  • Who, now, will do a lot of things?
    “We are the guardians of justice in this state. We have an obligation to support justice and make sure that the system works for everyone.” 
  • If Art were around, I can hear him whisper, “Make it brief, Judge — not too much about me.” 
  • The considerable substance of Art Neu’s voice
    I’ll just come right out with it. Art Neu and I were in prison together. I’ll let that hang there for you to absorb. We were in prison. And not just one prison or some easy federal hideaway. Nine of them. All of the prisons in Iowa, in fact. 
  • Art Neu’s bold instinct: Name 26-year-old as Carroll police chief
    Thirty years ago next month, Mayor Art Neu appointed me chief of police for the city of Carroll. That alone isn’t that newsworthy until you consider this: I was 26 years old, with all of three years, eight months, and 24 days of law-enforcement experience.  (I am being specific with the time because it makes it sound like a lot more experience). 
  • Why Joni Ernst should select Carroll for a district office

    Let’s get right to the point. The City of Carroll should be considered for a district office for our newest federal representative, U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Red Oak.

  • Support the Carroll Area Child Care Center
    The Carroll Area Child Care Center and Preschool — established in 1978 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with the Internal Revenue Service — works tirelessly toward its mission: to provide the highest quality childcare and educational services available, including the provision of food, rest, play, citizenship, habit training and general supervision to all children in the Carroll area. 
  • Identity politics weigh heavily in Iowa Democrats choice of narrator
    The least-known candidate for chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party is the best choice. 
  • Mayor Adam Schweers’ Theory of Everything Carroll

    Carroll Mayor Adam Schweers Dec. 3 delivered a wide-ranging half-hour speech to a crowd of about 40 people at the Knights of Columbus hall during a public forum on housing. Schweers said he was not trying to strong-arm a Kansas City, Kansas, developer’s 32-unit, affordable-housing complex into the city. An earlier meeting in which the Carroll City Council rejected local incentives to help the company leverage an application for federal tax credits through the state got “out of hand,” Schweers said.

  • Rejoice our freedom  to sing ‘Silent Night’  in peaceful Iowa
    One of the more gripping, inspiring Christmas stories I’ve ever heard doesn’t involve Tiny Tim and a bunch of lame ghosts. 
  • Jefferson exploring commuter shuttles to lure Iowa State students for jobs
    Greene County leaders are working aggressively on increasing housing stock to meet the needs of one of the more rapidly growing jobs bases in Iowa. 
  • Could sports-betting someday be  part of Wild Rose Jefferson Casino?
    In a New York Times editorial two weeks ago, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver endorsed legalization of professional sports betting, saying it is time to bring such wagering out of the shadows and into regulated arenas.

  • A northwest Iowa lock on power
    U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, captured 37 of the 39 counties the 4th congressional district to easily win re-election to a seventh term. He cleared the 80-percent-vote threshold in some of his more reliable reaches. 
  • The dark greed  of corporate interests bread-bagged  a U.S. senator

    $85 million. That’s how much Democrats and Republicans and a colorfully striped array of outside interest groups spent on the U.S. Senate race in Iowa, according to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). More money than Georgia ($66 million). More money than in Kentucky ($78 million), where Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell faced a spirited challenge.
