  • Crunching The Numbers

    More than 40 people came out to Glenwood Community High School Media Center last Monday to watch the Glenwood Board of Education in an hour-long budget work session.

    Yes, a budget work session.

    The topic of discussion was more than just tax levies, budget guarantees and line items. With rumors swirling that the financially-strapped district will have to make heavy cuts from the fiscal 2010-2011 budget, the question on the minds of most in attendance was just how much and how deep those cuts will impact programs and teachers.

  • Booking The Budget

    As a means of cutting back on expenses, the Glenwood Public Library is looking at cutting back on its hours.

  • Teen Jumps Off Plattsmouth Bridge

    Single-digit temperatures and blustery winds on Monday forced rescuers to call off their search late in the afternoon for a man who is believed to have jumped off the Plattsmouth Toll Bridge into the cold water of the Missouri River.

    Law enforcement agencies and rescue personnel from Mills County and Cass County, Neb., responded shortly after 3:20 p.m. after witnesses reported seeing a male subject get out of his vehicle, a white Ford Contour, and jump off the bridge.

    Integrity.

    Ethics.

    A motivator.

    A visionary.

    These are just a few of the attributes the Glenwood Board of Education is looking for in its new district superintendent as they begin the search process to replace Dr. Stan Sibley, who announced in December he would be stepping down when his contract is completed June 30, 2010.

    Sibley has served as Glenwood’s superintendent since 2001.

  • Slow start dooms Rams

    The Glenwood boys basketball team couldn’t overcome a slow start that led to a 16-6 Council Bluffs St. Albert first quarter run in a 62-50 loss to the Falcons on Saturday.

    The Rams (9-8 overall, 8-6 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) actually started slow to open the game and the second half and it cost them, said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte.
