  • Fourth quarter run lifts Rebels over East Mills

    MALVERN - A 17-6 fourth-quarter run proved the difference for East Mills as South Page rallied from a seven-point deficit to post a 52-50 Corner Conference victory on Friday.

    The loss comes in what East Mills coach Brian Bertini calls his team’s most complete game of the year.

    “This was the first time all year I felt like we actually played to win,” said Bertini. “We played four quarters of basketball. The intensity was better, the execution was better. We got better shots. We just missed some opportunities.”

  • Wolverines too quick for South Page

    MALVERN - The East Mills boys basketball team hit 5-of-7 three pointers and forced eight turnovers as part of a 24-8 opening quarter in a 81-48 victory over South Page on Friday.

    “I think we stunned them without depth,” said East Mills coach Kevin Schafer of his team's opening quarter. “They have a good starting five, but I could tell they didn't want to go to their bench, so we wanted to keep up tempo and use our quickness to wear them down. They tried to pack it in and play a zone to start it and thankfully we were hitting our shots that first quarter.”

    Chelsea Konfrst led Glenwood with 10 points. Morgan Lucy and Tori Kruse each added eight.

    Abby Mendlik led the Monarchs (9-0 overall, 7-0 in the conference) with 19 points. Amanda Eller added 13.

    It’s a decision he’s never regretted.

    “There’s just nothing as rewarding as the practice I’ve had,” Thomas said while discussing his recent retirement. “I’ve got classmates all over the world that graduated from Iowa in 1967 and I wouldn’t trade places with any of them. The practice itself is an incredible privilege and one that I’ve been blessed with, especially in a small town.”

  • Renovation of Existing Jail Proposed

    After countless hours of research and meeting more than a dozen times over the past six months, the eight-member Mills County Citizens Jail Committee has made a recommendation on the direction the county should go in addressing its jail needs.

    The committee’s conclusion is that the county should acquire the former Anderson Auto Parts property on the east side of Glenwood Town Square to allow for the expansion and renovation of the existing jail and Mills County Sheriff’s Office building, a structure built in 1915.
