News Briefs

  • The Franklin County Republican Party Central Committee will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 6, 2015 at Godfather's Pizza in Hampton.
  • WARNING: The Bremer County Sheriff's Office would like to remind everyone how dangerous distracted driving can be. Distracted driving can cause as much damage to property or injuries as someone that is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You constantly see us advise in our post about driving conditions to reduce your speed and not to drive distracted. Please watch this video that shows how quickly accidents can happen. Also, look at the amount of accidents that start on curves. The driver thinks they are ok because they are steering straight, but don't realize the road curves making them loose control. This goes for everyone that drives, not just younger drivers.
  • The Elmwood – St. Joseph Municipal Cemetery would like to remind families and friends to remove their winter decoration as soon as possible. Meaningful winter decorations they want to keep should be taken off gravesites no later than Wednesday, April 1, 2015. The City Cemetery Staff will begin removing and disposing of all non-regulation decorations shortly after the April 1st deadline.
