    A 24-year-old man was killed in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday morning in northern Mills County.

The vehicle left the roadway, going off a steep embankment on the east side of the highway before striking several trees, rolling and landing on its top.

  • Fright Knight

    MONDAMIN - On it’s disastrous first two plays from scrimmage Fremont-Mills netted four yards, two fumbles and a turnover.

    Then things really got bad. Four plays later West Harrison converted that turnover into a touchdown and then added four more scores off Knight first half giveaways en route to a 62-12 season-opening victory over Fremont-Mills in Mondamin on Friday.

    After winning the opening coin toss and electing to receive the ball first, the Hawkeyes jumped on the Knights and never seemed to let up.
