    The Glenwood boys soccer team scored three first-half goals in a 3-1 win over Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson on Friday.

    “We played a pretty good game,” said Glenwood coach Mike Artist. “We kept pushing, passed the ball well and took advantage of our opportunities.”

  • Tigers roll to 8-1 win over Rams

    Grant Nikseresht won the opening singles match for the Glenwood boys tennis team, and that was it as Red Oak won the five singles matches and swept the doubles matches for an 8-1 Hawkeye 10 Conference tennis victory last Monday.

    Nikseresht led wire-to-wire in his 10-6 victory over Eduardo Sokolnik, a foreign exchange student from Brazil.

    “Grant played a great match and was very calm as he picked up an important district win,” said Glenwood coach Jim Tucker.

  • Corning narrowly escapes

    Corning edged Glenwood 5-4 in a non-confernce girls tennis dual last Wednesday.

    Lydia Sperling and Jennifer Morgan won their singles matches 8-2 and 8-1 respectively.

    Sperling and Rams' No. 1 Alexa Bledsoe combined for a doubles win over Lindsey Bohannon and Tori Sorensen.

    In the Rams' other double victory, Shelby Cronk and Brittany Dedor combined to down Marian Evans and Shawnee Sproles 7-6 in a tiebreaker.

  • City Cools To County Policing Plan

    Upon further review, the Glenwood City Council Public Safety Committee has concluded that dissolving its police department and having Mills County deputies police the streets of Glenwood wouldn’t be in the best interest of city residents. The committee has elected not to endorse a proposal from Mills County Sheriff Eugene Goos that would have his deputies take over policing duties within the city limits.

    The matter was discussed at a special meeting of the public safety committee Tuesday, April 7, at City Hall.

  • 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.
