  • YMCA Would Likely Manage Aquatic Center

    If Glenwood residents approve the construction of an outdoor aquatic center in next month’s $4.75 million bond issue election, the new facility would likely be managed by staff from the Mills County YMCA.

    “The city council’s perception is that’s probably the best route to go,” city administrator Brian Kissel said. “They (YMCA) already have what they call a CPO – a certified pool operator. If we could take that person and manage the outdoor pool, that person could serve dual purposes.”

  • Principal Discusses Reasons Behind Sudden Resignation

    “My goal over the last 15 years has been to be a high school principal in Iowa and I did that,” Stephens said. “When I took over this job I thought it was the right job for me, however, over the course of the last two months there’s a combination of things.

  • Despite Burn Ban, Firefighters Kept Busy

    It’s been a busy couple of weeks for area firefighters.
    Since Mills County issued a county-wide burning barn beginning March 19, local fire departments have battled 17 grass fires all over the county, stoked by dry, windy conditions.
