Forty-one years ago, Tom and Carole Leonard made the move from Milwaukee to Lawler, and they’ve never regretted it once. “This is a great place to raise a family. That’s pretty much sums up Lawler to me,” said Tom, who will join his wife at the head of Lawler’s annual Irish Fest Parade this...
Fireworks light up the sky over Mikkelson Park during Heartland Days.
It wasn’t perfect, but dang, it was close. Yes, it tried to rain on our parade, and yes, it was pretty dang warm Saturday and Sunday, but it wasn’t just Mother Nature that made it a hot Heartland Days 2017. Instead, it was things like the new event Extreme Bull Riding, the brilliance of the Vic...
  Chickasaw County supervisors aren’t quite sure how to proceed when it comes to a new state law that says local government entities can not prohibit those who have the legal right to carry guns from bringing their weapons into a government building.

  The New Hampton City Council is going to let the smoke settle, if you will, when it comes to a new state law that generally legalizes fireworks in the state.

Gabby and Brady Lynch enjoy a ride during the annual Dairy Days celebration in Fredericksburg.

Students at Nashua-Plainfield Elementary have a little fun knocking down the cups they stacked during a final-week Fun Day.
  The wind and the cool temps didn’t stop the Nashua-Plainfield Elementary fun day.  Last week, the N-P elementary students got to participate in several different activities.

Nashua-Plainfield High School’s History Day contingent includes (front row, from left) Morgan Kapping, Jayne Levi, (back row) Advisor Suzy Turner, Caleb Lines, Tyler Anderson, Tyler Lantz, Drew Moine and Levi Williamson.
  If there is a rule when it comes to National History Day at Nashua-Plainfield, it might be this: What’s said in Mrs. Turner’s room, stays in Mrs. Turner’s room. To say that it gets a little crazy around contest time would be like saying the sun rises in the east. It’s just a fact. “It does get...
Nashua City Council meets at the Gateway to Northeast Iowa Welcome Center.
  Nashua’s road to hiring a city administrator recently hit a speed bump, and now the city is also without a city clerk. Mayor Angie Dietz late last month vetoed the employment contract for a Minnesota woman who was set to become the city’s first city administrator around July 1. And during a...
