  • Grassley Town Hall

    It was just a few minutes into last week’s Town Hall meeting at the Glenwood Senior Center when an Iowa woman hurled a stinging indictment at featured speaker Chuck Grassley, the five-term Republican senator who’s been trailing across western Iowa to dialogue with voters.

    The woman’s question? Simple.

    “Why the heck can’t Congress get anything done before vacation?” she asked, without identifying herself.

    Grassley’s answer? Not so simple.

    “That’s the way the Constitution was written,“ he said. “To make change very slow.”

  • City Auction A Success

    Glenwood officials are calling Saturday’s auction of city-owned property a success.

    In addition to dozens of miscellaneous furniture items, four major pieces of property were sold at the auction - the former city hall building at 107 S. Locust St., the Glenwood Police Station building at 209 Sharp St., the old outdoor swimming pool on North Elm St. and a piece of land near 11th and Linn Streets.
