    Jeff Passan story on ESPN dealing with Mental Health

    Anyone else read this article? I couldn't stop reading it. I even read it again to make sure I read it right the first time. What a powerful article on someone that battled mental health issues that it lead him to the brink of suicide. Drew Robinson deserves to win an ESPY award for what he...

    Chris Street Gravesite Vandalized

    Just saw the story on KCCI. Iowa alum Beau Bowman was assigned the story. Pretty sad to see this happen to anyone’s grave site. Didn’t realize it’s been 27 years already and that he was from Indianola. I was kinda taken back though when they called him an “Iowa Legend” though. I still remember...

    Pandemic brings out the best in this hawk fan

    Either this guy has a lot riding on the season or just a strange little man! Must be the team mom or something. He is pleading for them to not "lick " girls.

    Ames High Lost a Great One

    Yesterday Ames High teacher and swimming coach Dan Flannery passed away unexpectedly. What a terrible tragedy. He was the best swimming coach around the state of Iowa. He lead both the Ames girls and boys swimming teams. Since taking over as head girls swim coach in 2002, his record was...

    Drain Pipe Issue

    Neighbor had an issue with some water dripping on his patio. My first thought was to get the siding off in order to help it start to dry out no matter what was causing the issue. Turns out it was the 1.5" copper drain line coming out of his disposal that seemed to have a seam that had opened...
