Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • Hillary Clinton arrived in Iowa. She came in a strange road trip from the East Coast, in an armored SUV with her Secret Service contingent. 

  • Getting to know an approachable Hillary Clinton
    Hillary Rodham Clinton has just announced that she is running for president in the 2016 election. 
  • One-and-done era in hoops muddies coaching narratives
    In what was a marvelous final game of the college basketball season, Duke edged Wisconsin 68-63 for the national title Monday night. It’s Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s fifth national title, which, deservedly so, brought an onslaught of discussion regarding his position on the mantle of greatest college coaches. 
  • Bill Evans one of the big reasons Carroll is Carroll
    It would be almost unimaginable today. But in the 1940s, in a college basketball game in Iowa, Drake University star Bill Evans corrected an official on a mistaken call that benefited Evans. 
  • No pizza for you! Why religious law needs ‘False Fag Accusation’ amendment
    There’s an old saying about men over 40 who have never been married: either they aren’t attracted to women at all, or they like women too much. 
  • In last week’s March Madness column I made the rather obvious observation that anything can happen in a single-elimination format. It’s what makes the NCAA Tournament the most exciting postseason in sports. It’s also what often times prevents the best team in the regular season from winning the national title. To take it a step further, it’s also what coaches’ reputations — fairly or unfairly — are hinged upon. 
  • Tippecanoe and Randy Feenstra, too
    As it turns out, in all this nonsense about a rural-urban Iowa civil war, “them” is actually “us.” 
  • Another great day to be an Iowan
    The first-ever Iowa Ag Summit was held Saturday in the Elwell Family Food Center on the Iowa State Fair Grounds in Des Moines. 
  • With a casino comes concerts
    A year from now, we’ll look back and remember when the only “green room” in Jefferson was either Fudge’s Flowers or Krieger’s Flower Shop. 
  • 15 takeaways from the 2015 Iowa Ag Summit
    1. Best one-liner ever on immigration reform: U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham from South Carolina: “Strom Thurmond had four kids after age 67. If you’re not willing to do that, we need immigration.” 
  • Old Ike wouldn’t be lovin’ Branstad’s kid-cocooning
    The difference between an 18-year-old fresh-faced freshman and a 21-year-old senior in college is the most profound I’ve experienced in a work, social or living arrangement. 
  • Curious but cautious about Harper Lee’s book
    “It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the advice Atticus Finch gave to Jem during a signature moment in Harper Lee’s book, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” That may still be good advice, only this time it should be directed to the book. 
  • The way we care for  disabled citizens affects us all
    Kate was just 9 months old when her parents heard her diagnosis: “cerebral palsy.” She would spend her life in a wheelchair. She would need surgery to place metal rods in her back to correct the spinal curvature. The physical and intellectual impairments would be permanent. 
  • At gut-check time with abortion politics, is Ernst a Clinton in conservative clothing?
    It’s a line of a questioning most pro-life candidates don’t like. Count our new U.S. senator among them. 
  • President Hillary Clinton: King’s Divine Right of Kings?
    From Steve King’s lips to God’s ears. You can’t retract a prayer. But our congressman may be wishing he provided more direction and guidance to our maker should one Hillary Rodham Clinton take the presidential oath of office in 2017.
