  • Closing Arguments Heard In Misty Frazier Trial

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - The fate of a Glenwood woman charged with second-degree murder in the death of her 8-year-old daughter now rests in the hands of Mills County District Court Judge Susan Larson Christensen.

    Closing arguments in the bench trial for Misty Frazier, 34, were given Friday morning in a Pottawattamie County courtroom. Arguments were heard in Council Bluffs to accommodate a scheduling conflict for defense attorneys.

  • Just Like Old Times

    There’s a few moans, a few groans and an occasional  whisper of “I’m not sure I can still do that anymore,” but for the most part, the “alumni” from Gary’s Tumbling in Glenwood have picked right up where they left off so many years ago.

    For the past month, about a dozen graduates of Gary Giaffoglione’s nearly three-decade old tumbling program have been hitting the mats on Wednesday nights to perform aerials, back tucks, airplanes, somersaults and more. There’s a lot of laughter and reminiscing about old times.

  • Muddy Mo On The Rise

    Flooding along the Missouri River last week forced the closure of two popular camping and recreation areas in Mills County.

  • Fireworks - Booming Business

    Two Glenwood organizations are hoping to create a big boom at the cash register this week with the sale of fireworks.

    Campus Life, a Christian-based youth organization, and the Glenwood Band Parents, a booster group for the Glenwood instrumental music program, are both operating fireworks stands as a means of raising funds to support future activities. Fireworks sales became legal in Iowa in 2017 for the first time in nearly 80 years and many youth and non-profit organizations around the state are cashing in.

  • Aquatic Center Reopens; Repairs Being Monitored

    The Glenwood Aquatic Center reopened Friday after a four-day shutdown for repairs to stop the loss of water.
    The two-year-old facility was closed early last week to determine the source of a water leak on the northwest corner of the pool.

    Glenwood Public Works Director Perry Cook said nearly six gallons of water was being lost every minute as a result of the leak.

  • County Sets Public Hearing For Glen Haven Village Loan Guarantee

    Proponents of the Glen Haven Village project are hopeful that a public hearing next month will be one of the final hurdles to clear before construction can commence on a new nursing care and rehabilitative center.

  • Return To Little Sioux

    Mason Flora has a tattoo just above his heart.

    It features the date June 11, 2008, and a tornado, inked like a merit badge one might see on a Boy Scout sash.

    For Flora, the tattoo marks a day he’ll never forget.

    On June 11, 2008, Flora, then 15 years old, was one of nearly  100 scouts camping out at the Little Sioux Scout Ranch when a fast-moving, rain-wrapped tornado sprung from a thunderstorm and roared through the 1,800-acre campground south of Sioux City.

  • Billy and a Beer?

    Billy McGuigan fans might be allowed to legally drink more than soda pop and lemonade at next month’s concert at the Davies Amphitheater.

    Glenwood City Council members who spoke publicly on the matter at a meeting last week appear to be receptive to a request from Davies Amphitheater manager Jeff Mitts to allow concert goers to bring beer and wine to McGuigan’s show on July 21. Mitts said McGuigan has a large following in the Omaha area and his show typically attracts the largest concert crowd of the season to the Davies.
