  • Rams Rally by Norwalk in State Quarterfinals

    Many of those in attendance at the Wells Fargo Arena Tuesday afternoon likely left Glenwood for dead at halftime.

    After the Rams opened the game missing their first nine shots and shooting 29 percent in a half that saw them trail by as many as 20 points and go into the break down 40-22, who could blame them?

    But then a funny thing happened.

    Glenwood came back to life.

  • Desire for shade prompts farmers market relocation

    There’s been a change in plans for the relocation of the Glenwood Farmers Market.

    The Wednesday evening market is still moving from Glenwood Lake Park, but will now be located on the northwest corner of Town Square in a grassy area west of the Mills County Courthouse. The initial plan, approved in a formal motion last October by the Glenwood City Council, allowed for the market to be set up on the northeast corner of Town Square – on the west side of Vine Street, across the road from the former Mills County Sheriff’s Office building.

  • The Royal Family

    It’s highly unlikely five members of one family would be crowned high school royalty, but that’s exactly what’s happened with the Crow family of Glenwood.

    Laurie was selected as GCHS homecoming queen in 1975, a distinction she still appreciates today.

  • F-M falls to Exira/EHK in districts

    Basketball is a game of runs.

    Fremont-Mills is all too well aware of that fact.

    After using a 13-1 run to take its first lead late in the first half and a 10-3 run to open the second half, the Knights opened up a lead that swelled to as many as nine points.

    But a fourth quarter cold streak that led to a 12-2 run by Exira/EHK proved the difference as Fremont-Mills’ season came to an end in a 64-57 loss in the Class 1A, District 14 first round at Council Bluffs St. Albert Thursday.
