Maquoketa YMCA to offer flag football

MAQUOKETA — It’s football season; how about letting your child play football themselves?

Maquoketa YMCA officials are offering a program for children to learn what it takes to excel on the field while also excelling as an individual. Values like caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are taught in all YMCA-sponsored activities.

The flag football program is broken into divisions from first through sixth grade. First- through seconders will play introductory flag football with no pads. Third- through sixth-graders will play padded flag football. The kids will be issued their own helmets and shoulder pads. The plan is to introduce the kids to pads at an earlier age so they can get accustomed to the feel of them should they choose to move on to tackle football.

Games will be played at the Maquoketa High School practice field on Saturdays from Sept. 28 through Nov. 2. A preseason clinic will kick off the season September 21, with the first- and second-graders going from 10 to 11 a.m. and the third- through sixth-graders meeting from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Register now at the YMCA! The younger division fee is $29 for Y members and $41 for non-members. The older division is $42 for Y members and $54 for non-members.

For more information on the program or to become a volunteer coach, contact YMCA Program Director Chance Jenkins at (563) 652-6566 or email him at cjenkins@maqymca.org. No one is turned away by the inability to pay as financial assistance is available through the YMCA.

    "Captain America" continued to flex its Marvel muscle at the global box office, as "The Winter Soldier" took in $41.4 million domestically and $60.6 million overseas.

    The strong second-week performance for the Walt Disney release in North America was enough to narrowly edge 20th Century Fox's "Rio 2" in a springtime battle of sequels. The animated Amazon jungle tale "Rio 2" debuted with $39 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, almost exactly the opening weekend total of the 2011 Oscar-nominated original.

    The 50-year-old talk show host said he was never a contender to take over CBS' the "Late Show" when David Letterman announced his retirement last week.

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
