    NY Times Article about JTS

    I think it would be foolish to say that race did not play at least a small part in not naming it after Trice right away. It was mostly about money, but some of the money people (early big donors, some of whom may still be sitting between the 40s) did not want the stadium named to honor Trice.

    Dowling and Valley recruiting players From all over

    Let's not forget...... Some (certainly not all, of course!) people also decide to send their children to private schools to "avoid" certain "types" of people. Yes, there are religious beliefs as part of the curriculum at faith-based private schools, but for some people, they also want not more...

    Alternative Investment Ideas?

    Often alternative investments make for tough tax situations, give HUGE commissions to whoever sells the product, often puts a great deal of your money in illiquid situations, and can sometimes be closer to a scam than an investment a person can count on. Sometimes, though, they can do quite...

    JTS Improvements - Want More

    I'd like to see an update picture of the NEZ taken from the SEZ or the upper deck of the east side just to have a better view of the project. I wonder if the stadium is open to just walk in.

    Ticket Renewal

    Might be an issue with your account. One year they said I had not made my ticket payments when I had paid in full several months prior.

    JTS Improvements - Want More

    Will the improved hillsides be terraced? Will they still be grass or some other surface? Field turf there could make it so they do not get muddy, but maybe field turf at an angle is too slick.

    I assume that no one will be sitting there with 30k capacity. And maybe no one will be at games. MLB/NBA/NHL

    Talk to me about property taxes in the Des Moines suburbs.

    Pick a neighborhood you like. Everything else is gravy. I've lived all over the DSM area and in Ames. Taxes won't matter too much to you if you like your neighborhood and your drive to work. And the schools will be as good as your kids make them.

    Best ISU Football Team You've Watched

    How "classic Iowa State" is it that the best team in school history is the one that did not go to a bowl?

    NY Times Article about JTS

    Society and the United States continues to evolve, and we continue to work toward forming "a more perfect union." Everything needs to be considered with perspective. Anyway, The Jack Trice story is just about as American as I can think of. And it is part of the history of the nation's first...

    Jack Trice wanted to better himself so he could make life better for others. That alone makes his story so powerful.

    K-12 Return to school ongoing discussion

    My wife works daily treating patients in a hospital, my college-age daughters have all worked during the COVID-19 pandemic and they will return to Iowa and ISU in the fall, and my youngest will attend middle school in person. I teach, and I plan to be in my classroom, masked, but ready to...

    New test detects Coronavirus in 20 minutes

    Science has done wonders with HIV/AIDS from where things were in the 1980s. But that took decades. So, as I said before, science will solve it eventually, but I'd be quite surprised if things get solved made "safe" (whatever that means) even within the next several months. But there is power in...
