Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • Send Syrian refugees to rural America
    Rural America is falling further behind. Farms don’t need farmers. Manufacturing moved offshore. And the rate of rural kids living in poverty is worse than it is in the inner cities. Here’s a solution. Let’s take in the Syrian refugees. Make them rural Americans. As many as we can feed. 
  • Shop in the name of love for Carroll
    It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Santa’s coming to the Chamber’s Depot Plaza in a matter of hours — at 6:30 p.m. today in fact, to start collecting those wish lists, evaluate the naughty and nice among us. 
  • A Thanksgiving Grace
    My guest essay on Iowa’s German immigrants (“What Would Grandpa Trump Say?”) elicited a number of responses. 
  • On Trump, I told you so
    The East Coast media clueless have gotten everything wrong when it comes to Donald trump. All the time! 
  • Mrs. Clinton, can’t we cry for New York and shout at Wall Street?
    Wall Street judges us every day. Minute to minute, in fact. No tears. No mercy. 
  • Gloves come off at second Democratic debate
    The second Democratic presidential candidate debate held Saturday night at Drake University in Des Moines became a spirited dialogue that highlighted differences among the three Democratic hopefuls — Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders. 
  • What would Opa Trump say?
    Immigration was the centerpiece of Donald Trump’s campaign kickoff, and it was again at center stage at the recent GOP Fox Business debate.  
  • Jensen: I’ll push for more citizen referendums
    I am writing this afternoon to encourage every one to vote in the Carroll city elections Tuesday.  I would like everyone to take into consideration the candidates’ stance on leadership, accountability and fiscal responsibility. 
  • Deconstructing  the third Republican debate
    The Republican Denver debates last Wednesday were discouraging because they were a shouting match and zingers. 
  • Leading Chicago Latino: Rubio ‘callous’ on immigration
    Marco Rubio wants to change the very immigration system that allowed his family to migrate to the United States from Cuba. 
  • First-round folly: Random upsets don’t deter playoff change
    When the Iowa High School Athletic Association’s board of control voted in June to scale back the high school football playoffs to 16 teams per class, it meant this year would be the last under the 32-team format. 
  • Odom incident a sad tale of sports and fame getting twisted
    It makes for one hell of a headline: “Former NBA star Lamar Odom found unconscious at Nevada brothel.” I, like many people I’m sure, was grabbed by it and shocked when the news broke last week. It was no secret Odom has been undergoing personal struggles since his retirement from basketball in 2014. Police reported that witnesses said Odom had been on a binge that lasted several days in which he used herbal sex stimulants and cocaine. 
  • A white boy from rural Iowa finds out he’s hated — and that’s good
    The comedian Louis C.K. has this insightful bit about time machines. They’d be great for white men, because pretty much any number we hit on the dial — 1855 or 1950 — works OK for us. 
  • Taking inventory through 6 weeks of high school football
    Though it’s hard to believe, just three weeks remain in the Iowa high school football regular season. So, what do we make of the area landscape thus far? Just two teams — Glidden-Ralston (8-Man) and Audubon (1A) — find themselves ranked in the Associated Press poll. 
  • 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.
