  • When Will It Be Done?

    They say Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Neither, apparently, was the modern American high school.

    After more than two years of construction, countless delays due to heavy rains, subcontractor firings, poor planning and an increasingly tense relationship between the builder and the Glenwood Community School District, Glenwood’s new $21 million high school is still not finished.

    And no one seems to know when it will be.

  • Positive Choices

    Over the past month, Trooper Scott Miller of the Iowa State Patrol has been pounding home a message to southwest Iowa high school students about the dangers of drinking and driving.

    “The message I’m trying to get out this month with proms and graduations coming up is to make positive choices,” Miller said. “I want them to think about the choices they make. I want them to make positive choices that are healthy and going to keep them safe.”

  • Accidents Claim 3 Lives In County

    A pair of single-vehicle accidents early Sunday morning has left two dead on Mills County roads. The mishaps occurred just four days after an accident on Interstate 29 in western Mills County claimed the life of a Sidney woman.

    Sunday’s first accident occurred just after 1 a.m. when Darin Fuhrman 44, of Mound City, Mo., lost control of his vehicle near the intersection of 196th and Brohard Avenue in northern Mills County and rolled in the north ditch, according to a report from the Mills County Sheriff’s Office.

  • A Buyer's Market

    It’s been a rough, cold winter in more ways than one for the real estate market in southwest Iowa, but it appears things are starting to warm up just in time for spring.

    Glenwood-area real estate professionals say there’s been an upswing in activity over the past month, a trend they hope will carry over well into the summer.

  • Checking Out The Library

    In the midst of our current economic recession no business seems immune.

    Factories are cutting production, companies are laying off workers and executives who once clung to golden parachutes like security blankets are finding themselves with their hands out.

    But there’s one business that’s thriving in this economy and its one, you might say, that’s doing it by the book.

    It’s the public library.

  • ISL Vote Still Tied After Recount

    The ballots were counted again Tuesday morning and the vote count remained unchanged.

    The Glenwood Community School District Instructional Support Levy (ISL) election has ended in a dead heat - 434 “Yes” votes and 434 “No” votes.

    By failing to get a simple majority, the school district’s 10-year, approximately $750,000 levy has failed by a single vote.

  • Anniversary (40th) - Richard and Kathy Dix

    Richard and Kathy Dix of Glenwood will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary on Friday, April 3.

    Mr. and Mrs. Dix were united in marriage on April 3, 1969, at the Silver City Methodist Church by Rev. LeRoy Pullman.

    They have two children - Becky Killpack and Ronda Dix - and

    two grandchildren.

  • OPINION-TRIBUNE EDITORIAL

    At last month’s Betterment and Beautification Awards dinner, employees at the Mills County Public Health Office were recognized with the Glenwood Area Chamber of Commerce’s award for Outstanding Customer Service. The award is presented annually to the Glenwood-area business or public agency that goes above and beyond when it comes to meeting the needs of its customers.

    The recognition is well-deserved.

  • Cookies Were A Big Hit With Joe Biden

    Let me see a show of hands. How many of you out there can say that you’ve hosted the vice president of the United States in the living room of your home?

    Kelly Johnson and her family will be able to say they did once Joe Biden takes his oath of office as our next vice president on Inauguration Day in January.

  • Steve King embarrasses Iowa again

    Oh poor Steve King.

    On a weekend when America was celebrating the historic and inspiring inauguration of its first African-American President, what was the honorable representative from Iowa’s Dist. 5 doing?

    Sticking his foot in his “provacative” mouth once again and seeking out any media outlet he could to disparage an individual who has achieved the highest office in the land, based not on idealogical or political gamesmanship, but rather, Barack Obama’s middle name, Hussein, which King apparently finds offensive.
