  • Mother, Teacher, Blogger

    A Glenwood preschool teacher and single mother of two children is making a name for herself as a blogger for a San Francisco-based website geared toward issues of interest to women.

    “The website is Lipstick and Politics and I’m not the lipstick” Bobbi Jo Rohrberg said during a recent interview.

    “I’m not into fashion and entertainment. The politics is what I like most, but I’m also a single mom who’s been through divorce so I also like to write things for co-parenting and general parenting.”

  • Softball Preview

    Balance.

    That’s the word Glenwood softball coach Tim Stanton used to describe his 2013 squad.

    “I think we’ll have several kids that are standout players and when you have that many kids standout, nobody is standing out,” he said. “I think we have a lot of good players and good hitters. I don’t think this going to be ‘Glenwood has this person,’ it’s going to be ‘Glenwood has a team.’”

  • Baseball Preview

    The Glenwood baseball team returns nine of its top 10 hitters and four pitchers that won at least three games.

    Yet, that wealth of experience isn’t offering head coach Brett Elam the comfort level one might think.

    The Rams committed 95 errors in 35 games a year ago, nearly three per game.

    Elam has made it clear to his team, to play championship level baseball that can’t continue.

  • Record day for Ram track

    Not even rain could dampen the Glenwood track teams’ performances at districts.

    The Glenwood boys qualified a record number 19 athletes in 15 events to win their third straight district title while the girls placed third as a team and qualified a school-record 13 athletes in 11 events before a rain soaked crowd of 400 at Ram Memorial Field on Thursday.

  • Moms at Home, Moms at Work

      Mother.  
      The woman who traditionally bakes cookies, bandages boo-boos, tells her kids to pick up their bedrooms and so much more.  Many people mature, leave home and then see their parents occasionally.
      The three mothers in this story all have their daughters beside them in the workplace. The three daughters are all very grateful to have their mothers there, learning life’s lessons – even as adults.

  • Former Glenwood Heights undergoing facelift

      Jerry Moore has a vision for Glenwood Heights.
      Not the least of which was the name of the apartment complex at 301 Ebaugh St. that had fallen into disrepair and was plagued by what Moore called “a bad element” under previous owners.

  • Glenwood boys soccer gets comeback win in overtime

    Glenwood overcame a  1-0 halftime to win their second straight overtime match in non-conference boys soccer action last Tuesday.

    “This felt like a game where they (Sioux City North) came out stronger than us, we hung in there with our defense and we got the momentum back,” said Glenwood coach Shane Keeling.

    Marco Carrillo got the Stars on the board when his shot deflected off Ram goalkeeper Nick Frazee’s hands just inside the far post for the game’s first goal with just two minutes to go before halftime.
