Taking a page from what pretty much all of the major sports television networks have done during this pandemic era, I’ve decided to relive some Anamosa, Olin, Midland and Springville sports history by bringing back some of our area schools’ classic sports moments from the last quarter century.
Let me start by proclaiming I am a huge Illinois Fighting Illini fan, and have been almost all of my life after spending a good part of my youth (2nd through 6th grades) living right on campus in the married student housing complex a mere couple of blocks from the university’s football and basketball arenas (I used to listen to Illini football games in the fall sitting at the top of the big hill right across the street from our apartment) in Champaign-Urbana.
You’ve likely been hearing many news reports, etc. regarding plans to address voting for the June 2nd Primary Election in Iowa during this COVID-19 public health emergency. Specifically, here are the plans we are developing for voting in JONES COUNTY in 2020.
The Anamosa community is once again in heartbreak after hearing the news that Raider standout Maggie McQuillen was involved in a serious car accident Thursday, March 19, that has left the senior four-sport star fighting for her life at the University of Iowa Hospital.
At a town hall in Anamosa, I heard an individual speaking about immigrants coming to this country because of the benefits. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard this false statement, and I’m certain it won’t be the last.
We have three kids that are becoming more involved in multiple activities in our community. I hope everyone realizes how fortunate and blessed we are to have so many parents who are stepping up and volunteering to help in so many areas!
