During April Community College month, I wanted to thank and commend Eastern Iowa Community Colleges for being the foundation for many students. I was one of those students who was given the opportunity to have a place to start my journey to becoming the nurse.
Iowa community providers support people in our communities who need mental health and disability services. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic turned our state upside down, community providers faced a crisis-level workforce shortage.
Iowa farmers are fortunate to have the support of U.S. Sens. Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley. Both have long advocated for policies that benefit the agricultural community, so it is no surprise that the two are now working with their colleagues in Congress to advance legislation that will ensu…
In the last five years I have watched HeroBX Biodiesel in Clinton grow and spur economic growth in the Clinton community. HeroBx Biodiesel supports over 30 jobs, but that is just the beginning.
This is a message for all the dog owners who walk their dogs and do not clean up their doo-doo. I walk my small dog around the area of 13th Avenue South, South 12th Street, and 11th Avenue South from South 14th Street to Briar Cliff Lane.
Hello! My name is Kyle Huebner and I’m the owner of KT3 Fitness in downtown Fulton, Illinois. I am reaching out to you because we would like help getting the word out about an upcoming bone marrow donor signup drive-thru for an organization called Be the Match.
Thank you to the Clinton and Jackson County communities for your vote of support for the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges’ bond referendum. This vote demonstrates our shared vision to extend opportunities to Eastern Iowans.
Mariannette Miller-Meeks filed a motion to dismiss Rita Hart’s election contest despite the fact that there are 22 legal ballots currently excluded from the election results.
It's truly a historic day when I agree with a headline from Rich Lowry. The headline of his column on Feb. 18 of "Washington D.C. shouldn't be an armed camp" is spot on.
I am writing to ask why the article of President Biden's work to improve the minimum wage was on the very last page of the Feb. 16 Clinton Herald, but the article about Ms. Marjorie Greene was on the front page.
Many Iowans have experienced filing for unemployment for the first time this year. As a result, many Iowans now realize just how important this lifeline can be for working people and their families.
The Clinton Herald late last week included an article on a bill now being rushed through the legislative process that is aimed to reduce the ability of Iowans to use early voting or mail-in voting.
The 2020 election and caucuses were my first in Iowa. Moving to Iowa, I looked forward to taking part in the caucuses and voting as an Iowan. Iowa has a reputation across the country for being fiercely proud of its election process and sharing a commitment to the ideal that everyone who has …
I am sick and tired of excuses. There is no justification for disenfranchising the 22 Iowans whose ballots were excluded from the IA-02 Congressional election. None. Nevertheless, Mariannette Miller-Meeks continues to rely on unfounded excuses in order to exclude these ballots.
Doubt about the result fuels the appeal by Clinton County’s Rita Hart concerning her race for the U.S. House of Representatives. She would accept the voters choosing someone else but not leaving legal votes uncounted.
State Sen. Chris Cournoyer ran for office as a strong public school advocate. Being a former public school board member, we believed she had public schools’ best interest in her heart.
This letter is response to an article on the front page of the Clinton Herald a few days ago regarding the Camanche School Board's consideration of changing the name of their mascot.
I am sure I speak for all of my neighbors here in the MillCreek Crossing Subdivision when I say I hope the city will send a snow plow out here to collect our taxes.
America’s elections are a critical component of our democracy. One aspect I most appreciate about Iowa’s elections is the paper trail which can be used to verify election outcomes.
Rita Hart must just quit. Iowa has made the decision. It is not up to the national legislature to make that decision. That is just wrong. It is for Iowa to make that decision. Stay out of it, Pelosi.
Dear Clinton residents: Today, the Board members of Meadowview Recreational Association, Inc. are asking for the community to help make decisions regarding the future of beloved pool that services the community.
Rita Hart’s decision to request a U. S. House of Representatives full hand recount is to assure all votes are counted rather than a political decision.
Iowa's 2nd Congressional District 2020 election tally was counted twice and the victor was the same in both counts. This congressional race will live in history for its certified and amazingly slim 6-vote differential. It was a very methodical and legitimate ballot count, which is to be expe…
On Dec. 2, 2020, the Rita Hart for Congress Campaign announced that it would appeal the results of Iowa’s Second Congressional District election to the U.S. House of Representatives, as provided by the U.S. Constitution and federal statute. The election contest between Hart and Mariannette M…
On behalf of Iowa APCO and Iowa NENA, we want to thank the Iowa Legislature for passing Senate File 2373 this session. This bill made an important change to Iowa law by defining telecommunicators/911 dispatchers as public safety telecommunicators and recognizing their role as first responders.
With Thanksgiving this week, it is the time of year we express our gratitude for the blessings in our lives. This year, we offer special praise to our care-giving teams for their tireless dedication and unwavering commitment to caring for Iowans during this COVID-19 pandemic.
In strong support of our President, Donald Trump, I would ask all Americans to pray for our nation and its leaders. “Here are my directions. Pray much for others, plead for God’s mercy upon them; give thanks for all He is going to do for them,” I Timothy 2:1.
While the presidential and congressional elections this year may determine whether we will restore and enhance our rights to equality or continue on a path to destroy our democracy, our county offices are also extremely important to our way of life, two in particular.
Originally I was all for my employer picking up some, if not all, of the cost of my health care insurance. It made sense. If my employer gave me $1 an hour raise, I’d have to give the IRS 15 cents of it for a net gain of 85 cents. If my employer instead put that dollar toward my health insur…
