The benefit began with participants meeting downtown at Tiffany Theater, where organizational plans for the poker run were made prior to viewing the classic movie, “Every Which Way But Loose.” The movie was shown free, through the generosity of Stuart Fox, one of the benefit’s sponsors.

"Homecoming" in Mason City this weekend

July 27, 2012

MASON CITY - - Although the Lincoln Town Site company named this town Mason after Judge O. P. Mason of Lincoln, the post office refused to accept that name because it could be too easily confused with Macon. So, the railroad referred to it as Mason and the post office became known as Mason City.
Each year Mason City hosts a “Homecoming Celebration”, which not only beckons alumni of the community’s now extinct school, but to all who have fond memories of life in a small town.

Late last week, Rick Nelson met with a group of NPPD customers to review their options, and decided to divide up its nine power districts into three groups for more effective control of transmission relief.

Put Me In Coach: Penn State student athletes caught in wrong place at wrong time

July 26, 2012

Just this past week, Penn State’s students and faculty alike watched as the empire that longtime football coach Joe Paterno and his staff spent decades building, crumble in front of their eyes in a matter of days.
What happened at Penn Sate and with long time assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been well documented.
No punishment that any governing body could muster would do the victims justice, at least not deep down.
What happened in Happy Valley is unlike anything that has ever swept the college athletic landscape.
