  • Working for a Better Glenwood

    It’s been a a year since a team from the Iowa Department of Economic Development (IDED) came to Glenwood to conduct a Downtown Assessment.

    The assessment included interviews with dozens of citizens who were asked to share their likes and dislikes about living in Glenwood. Interviews were conducted with Glenwood-area residents of all ages from all walks of life. At the conclusion of their visit, IDED team members presented their analysis of the interviews and their own outsider thoughts on Glenwood.

  • 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.

  • A New Year And A Fresh Start

    As I sat in front of the TV late Wednesday night watching the final seconds of 2008 tick away in Times Square, it was very evident that Americans were eager to ring in a new year.

    Maybe more so than any other year in a long, long time.

    No doubt about it, 2008 was a rough year for many people, for many different reasons, and most people were ready to put the year to rest.

    With the new year comes a breath of fresh air and the hope that America and the world will be a better place to live in 2009.
