MONTICELLO - With a big crowd on hand in Monticello Thursday, Dec. 5, the Anamosa wrestling team got off to a slow start against the host Panthers, and the raucous home crowd made sure the Raiders knew it too.

When I started as sports editor here at the Journal-Eureka way back in 1995, Jerry Carstens had been coaching girls basketball at Midland for exactly 30 years.

Anna M. Soppe, 81, of Monticello died Sunday, Dec. 1, 2019, at Unity Point – St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids surrounded by her family.
