It started as instinct. I was 10. I didn't have the words to summon an explanation.
  • 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.

     
  • Joni Ernst lets the conservative men do her talking
    Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst has campaigned publicly in Carroll twice in the general election. Right after her primary win in June. And last week. 
  • Beware what you run from, Iowa
    Joni Ernst is on the verge of cashing in the winning ticket on a crazy bet. 
  • Ernst and Braley: Bread bags and badly injured dad
    A 16-year-old Buena Vista County farm kid died last week in a farming accident. The story led the Sept. 24 issue of The Storm Lake Times. The young man perished near Truesdale when he lost his footing trying to clear a piece of machinery that had been plugged while harvesting corn, the newspaper reported. 
  • Details, dodges and dreams

    Check the transcript. The word-for-word accounting of Iowa Public Television’s 3rd District Congressional debate Thursday in Council Bluffs is remarkably revealing.

     
  • Sarah Palin, Joni Ernst’s political jukebox hero
    Political question of the day for Iowans: What’s worse, being Sarah Palin, or wanting to be like Sarah Palin? 
  • Stolen nights and places in between
    It started as instinct. I was 10. I didn't have the words to summon an explanation. 
  • How can Koch-bottled Ernst be 'philosophically opposed' to what's right for Iowa?
    About the only thing Gov. Terry Branstad didn't do one recent Wednesday for energy production in west-central Iowa was to check the porch bulbs or flip on the night lights for residents himself in Glidden and Coon Rapids before leaving the region. 
  • Move to rural Iowa, our days are longer
    As a former resident of the Washington, D.C., area I did the commute thing - for four years. I recall these days each time I visit from Iowa. 
  • Is Carroll ready for transatlantic bicycle adaptation?
    A few years ago, I was in San Luis Obispo, California, headed down a one-way street to visit the historic Spanish mission. I was in a right turning lane that fed the mission and had a green light. I turned right and nearly hit a bicyclist in a right bike lane that ran adjacent to the road. 
  • Joni Ernst, meet your Snake River Canyon
    With all that bread-bagging of shoes and hog castrating on the farm, life for a young Joni Ernst surely didn't afford a lot of time for leisurely television. 
  • Masterful and measured
    David Young, who showed he could spin a good joke and is blessed with a king's ransom of wit, told Republican 3rd Congressional District convention delegates Saturday that Washington, D.C., is obsessed with celebrity, that the nation's capital has turned into "Hollywood for ugly people." 
  • Skanks and hags and Wonder Bread bags
    I consider Facebook in much the same way I do public restrooms. Yes, I could make other arrangements, but in modern America, with all the travel, and the necessity of employing millenials, I'm going to have to use both. I just try and get in and out of the social-media site and highly trafficked toilet facilities as quickly as possible. 
  • A Polk County insider earns his rural boots
    Tears rolled for many reasons as the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission approved a gambling license for Greene County in a suspense-filled session at the Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington.
