Over a century ago, as the lumber mills were being removed from Clinton's riverfront, it was a stroke of genius that the construction of Riverfront Park started.

When Senator Joni Ernst first ran for the U.S. Senate she said she was going “to make them squeal.” Who has she made squeal since she went to Washington? Iowans.

Senator Joni Ernst recently came to town as part of her 99-county tour of Iowa. I was one of the 60 or so folks who came to Clinton Middle School to listen, ask questions and listen again.

After reading about the coverage of Sen. Ernst's visit to Clinton on Monday, I would like to address on a comment made by one of the attendees. No Mr. Van Zee,the Democrats are not party that is interested only in obstruction.

With summer now upon us, many of us think back fondly on our summer escapades. We counted down the days until school let out for summer break, and we planned how we would spend our entire summer with our friends. Images of tree forts, lemonade stands, backyard camping, swimming pools, and sl…

Friday, June 7, the first Friday of June, is Salvation Army Donut Day. On June 7, local Salvation Army volunteers will be delivering donuts to our brave first responders throughout the Clinton community. Where did the donuts come from? Why do we do this?

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful staff at Bluff Elementary School. Since March, I have volunteered in my grandson's first grade classroom. My schedule there has been irregular.

A truth that has been hammered into me since I was an undergraduate majoring in speech at UNI is that the meaning of words is in people and not in the word itself. This implies that the idea(s) that what a word symbolizes can change. I would like to provide an example of this change for two …

With all of the violence, shootings and the wars, it all seems to never stop.

I’d like to ask your readers: Do you stutter? Do you know someone who does? Most people do. More than 3 million Americans and 70 million people across the globe stutter, but sadly it is still quite misunderstood. Help us change that.

The staff and I at United Way of Clinton County, Iowa would like to thank to community for participating in our Flowers Just Because fundraiser on April 24. We were able to distribute just over 400 bouquets of spring flowers in two hours. We could not have done so without our fantastic volun…

I went to Paul's Discount yesterday, and there were very few parking spots available. I found the items I needed, then just wandered the crowded aisles for a bit. Reminiscing.

On Thursday, April 11th we had the pleasure of attending the Kyle Ketelsen performance at Clinton High School Vernon Cook Theatre. An outstanding evening of vocal and musical entertainment thanks to Kyle Ketelsen, Clinton High School choirs, jazz band and members of the orchestra.

Legislation currently being considered by the Iowa Legislature would hinder the ability of local elected officials to make budget decisions to fund the programs and services their constituents depend on and desire. House File 773 would place an arbitrary 2% annual growth limitation on proper…
