Indians rally, improve to 3-0 in league

DURANT — Camanche turned a comeback win in Game 1 into a three-game sweep Thursday in River Valley Conference volleyball.

The Indians defeated Durant-Bennett 26-24, 25-10, 25-21 in a league crossover game.

A key for Camanche (7-2, 3-0 conference) was battling back from a 23-19 deficit in the first game.

“I felt we came out a little rusty; it was our second road game in a couple of days,” Camanche coach Josh Davis said. “I can’t think of one thing that turned it around.”

Serving was one key for the Indians. Kylie Vogel delivered four aces, while Julia Moore added three.

Libby Schnoor led the Indians with 17 kills and six digs, while Brett Hilgendorf added nine. Vogel had 26 assists.

Camanche holds its annual tournament Saturday, with Bellevue, Easton Valley, Northeast and Mediapolis participating.

  • Smartphone kill switches are coming

    Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!

    It happened two hours after John Hood finished his run. Like many, he thought the loud boom was just the sound of cannons going off, something that shook the ground. It was odd, but Hood — a 1989 Clinton High School graduate — tried to make it logical, associating the noise with another good happening at the Boston Marathon.

  • Eyewitness testimony no longer a gold standard

    The American legal system offers few moments as dramatic as an eyewitness to a crime pointing his finger across a crowded courtroom at a defendant.

    The problem is that decades of studies show eyewitness testimony is only right about half the time — a reality that has prompted a small vanguard of police chiefs, courts and lawmakers to toughen laws governing the handling of eyewitnesses and their accounts of crimes.
