  • 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.
