  • Knight offense stymied in 48-0 loss

    TABOR - The Fremont-Mills football team turned the ball over four times and could muster just 47 yards of total offense in a 48-0 loss to Treynor in Class A, District 8 football Friday.

    “We talk all the time, if we don't turn the ball over we have a chance to win ball games. It's been our M.O. all season, we've turned it over way too many times,” said Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christensen.

    Treynor (7-1 overall, 5-1 in the district) turned two of the Knights' four turnovers into first-half touchdowns and allowed just nine yards rushing on 22 carries.

  • St. Albert downs Glenwood in three

    Council Bluffs St. Albert handed Glenwood a 23-25, 14-25, 20-25 non-conference sweep in volleyball last week.

    “St. Albert is a very good team. We played very well the first game but our passing and serving didn't help us for the night. We struggled passing and serving,” said Glenwood coach Kara Huisman.

    The Rams (9-15 overall, 2-6 in the conference) were led by Morgan Lucy's 10 kills and 11 blocks.

    Erica Schwanke added 17 assists and three aces and Chelsea Konfrst had six kills and six blocks.

  • Wolverines can’t escape Viking surge

    STANTON – In the same fashion of a great heavyweight fight, the East Mills-Stanton football game, Friday, was full of quick hitting offense, strong defense, and possibly the district championship in the balance.

    The defending district champion Vikings came into the game with a perfect 6-0 record with a winning margin averaging 40 points per game wearing their purple tops and white bottoms.

    The challenger East Mills Wolverines were in their visiting whites, with a 5-1 record, only losing in an overtime slugfest with the CAM, Anita Cougars in which they lost 44-42.

    Last July, when Gina Giaffoglione accepted an invitation from one of her outpatient physical therapists at Immanuel Medical Center to share her story with some Alegent Health

    marketing folks, the thought never crossed Gina’s mind that the interview would lead to air time in a national

    television commercial.

  • One Man's Trash . . .

    When Mills County Sheriff’s Deputy Bob McAleer came across a 1979 Moped motorcycle that had been discarded in a heap of trash, an idea crossed his mind.

    Why not take a look at the little two-wheeler and see if it can be restored and turned into a public relations tool for the sheriff’s office?

    A conversation piece, if you will.

    Well, with about $900 and some mechanical know-how, McAleer was able to put together the newest vehicle in the sheriff’s office fleet.
