  • Aquatic Center Proponents Not Throwing In The Towel

    Despite failing to pass a $4.7 million bond issue for construction of an outdoor aquatic center in Glenwood, proponents of the project say they’re encouraged by results of the May 6 special election and intend to bring  it to another public vote in the future.

    The bond issue received the support of 52 percent of city of Glenwood voters. The “Yes” votes outnumbered the “No” votes 503-465, but Iowa law requires approval of at least 60 percent of voters to pass a bond issue.

  • Rams fall in girls tennis

    Shenandoah defeated Glenwood 8-1 in a Hawkeye 10 Conference girls tennis match played indoors at the Montgomery County YMCA last Wednesday due to weather.  

    The Rams played very well despite the lopsided score, said Glenwood coach Callie Ohm.  

    Maggie Finnegan, the Rams’ No. 2 player, recorded the lone victory in the dual with a 9-7 singles victory over the Fillies’ Jordan Major. Finnegan then went on to team up with Jana King at the No. 1 doubles for a close loss to Heidi Fichter and Major.
