    I will vote for President Trump again. I would never vote for any democrat for any position.
    Never in a million years would that creep Biden ever get my vote!!! TRUMP ALL THE WAY!!!!!
    Hillary, I am white, I am a nationalist. I am not a globalist like you and your freedom-hating friends. You do not deserve to be President. Your behavior should have landed you in jail decades ago. You didn’t win because you are you.
    Subtract illegals and those who rose from the dead to vote, and you’ll find that Trump did win the popular vote!

      You know, I am fine with Trump supporters planning to stand with him in 2020. I’m fine with negative comments regarding Hilary Clinton; I just don’t understand the obsession with someone who isn’t running for public office any longer. The Democrats didn’t continue to go after Bush once he was no longer in office, so give it up, already.

      What I really don’t understand (and I don’t support Biden for President in 2020 because I think he is too old), are the comments about “creepy” or “feely” Biden. Trump’s supporters are ok with him “grabbing p***y” but Biden can’t put his hand on a woman’s shoulder???? I don’t get it.

    The ONLY collusion was by the DEMOCRATS in an unsuccessful attempt to impeach President Trump. I certainly Pray that justice will be served on those that were involved in all the lies and fabrication caused by this crooked Democratic party!!!!
    There was collusion with Hillary and the DNC with Russia. That has been proven. Nadler, Shiff and the other idiot can’t accept the fact they were wrong and probably be investigated for attempting a coup against the President and obstructing justice by lying about Hillary’s collusion and her emails. The Senate republicans need to put a stop to this BS and refer these AH for criminal charges for attempted coup.
    Demmo’s can smell the trouble, you can see the terror in Nerdler’s eyes, in Maxine’s spiteful speech, in Ted Lieu’s deceit. They know the train is a’comin and they can’t do a dang thing about it.
    These people need charged ….. what they have done is not only unlawful, but Treason ….. this country needs to start enforcing our laws….. these people or the Clintons, Obama’s are NOT ABOVE THE LAW !!!

      Last I heard, it is the duty of Congress to investigate potential wrong doings. Don’t see evidence of a coup or treason. No articles of impeachment have been brought.

      But, there have been several indictments and convictions out of the Mueller investigation; there were none after Trey Gowdy’s year long investigation of Clinton.

    Because of due process and the fact that a person is innocent until proven guilty, if a person is arrested on the suspension of being an illegal immigrant it cost our government a minimum of ten thousand dollars to deport them back to Mexico. If they are from any of the countries south of Mexico, it can cost twice and three times as much due to extradition treaties with the country of origin and escorted air fare back to the country they came from. Once you have two feet on U.S. soil you can’t just simply be rounded up and taken back across the border. Because of due process, you are first arrested, detained, arraigned and a court date is set, sometimes as much as 180 days in the future or more depending on court load. Now if the person has a criminal record they can be detained and deported within a couple of months but during that time they must be housed, fed, clothed and given medical treatment. If they have medical issues (and most do), they usually get to stay here a lot longer. However, if they have no record they are released on their own recognizance and into society on U.S. soil and told to appear in court on a given date, sometime in the future (the so called, Catch and Release Program). Statistics prove that 90% do not show up.
    We can’t afford to place guards on the border every fifty feet! Therefore, if the wall slows them down by just 15 minutes to where a patrol unit can reach them before they get two feet on U.S. soil, it will pay for itself in the first year by saving the tax payers a considerable amount of money.
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS A NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT, A SLAP IN THE FACE TO OUR FELLOW CITIZENS THAT MIGRATED HERE LEGALLY AND IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED NOW!

    I am excited for the new Kiwk Star coming to Mason City. They will create competition and the other fuel stations will have to update or go out of business. Casey’s running 30+ year old building with very limited up grades, and Yesway’s building in terrible shape. I suspect Casey’s will be building 2 or 3 new stores on existing sites or relocating a few locations. Now hopefully a new large job creation that will pay a livable wage will upset the balance of several existing manufacturing business, thus driving wages higher. Only then will quality of life start to improve and employees will regain hope and Mason cities turn around will begin!!!

    More BS for the most corrupt guy to ever sit in the Oval office and a draft dodging coward.

    “Donald Trump designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps a terrorist organisation.
    But according to a 2017 report, the Trump Organization signed contracts in 2012 with developers
    to build a skyscraper in Azerbaijan that was “to be a corrupt operation engineered by oligarchs tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard”.
    The Trump organization helped the IRGC launder money to fund its interests abroad.”

    The Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health and the Mason City Family YMCA, with support from MercyOne, are offering a program to help individuals at risk for diabetes, prevent the disease. The Diabetes Prevention Program is a nationally recognized weight-loss program from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, proven to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes through modest lifestyle changes made with the support of a coach and one’s peers.

    People with prediabetes — higher-than-normal blood glucose (sugar) levels — are 5 to 15 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those with normal blood glucose levels. In fact, many people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within three years if they do not take steps to prevent it. To see if you are at risk for prediabetes, take a prediabetes screening test on the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health website, http://www.cghealth.com.

    “One in three American adults has prediabetes, so the need for prevention has never been greater,” said Karen Crimmings, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion Service Manager, Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health.

    Guided by a trained lifestyle coach, groups of participants will learn the skills they need to make lasting changes such as losing weight, being more physically active, and managing stress. In addition, they will learn how to eat healthy, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes. The Diabetes Prevention Program groups meet weekly for six months, followed by six monthly maintenance sessions to assist with maintaining the healthy lifestyle changes they learn. The course is a one year commitment.

    The local course will be offered on

    · Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30PM at the Mason City Family YMCA starting in June.

    · Wednesdays from 10-11AM at the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health starting in July.

    Registered participants are invited to attend an orientation session to learn more about the program. This session will be held a few weeks before the official classes begin. Enrollment packets with specific class time, date, and location will be provided upon registration.

    The course is FREE (with a $100 refundable deposit) to at-risk participants.

    “Participants can earn back 100% of their deposit by simply showing up for classes,” explains Crimmings.

    To take the prediabetes screening test, or to enroll in the course visit http://www.cghealth.com or call 641-421-9303.

        If you did see her tax returns, you would see that she and her husband are wealthy, not solely because of her salary but because of her husband’s ownership of a very profitable real estate and venture capital company. Some of that wealth I am sure was accumulated because of her position as a politician, but that would be the case with almost any Senator or Representative. If you didn’t know, San Fransisco is the most expensive place to live in this country so having a long-standing real estate business there meant that you probably make a lot of money.

    Besides being a draft dodging coward and enormous liar, Trump presents the symptoms of mental decline,
    including a bizarre inability to remember where his own father was born.
    Of all Trump’s many misstatements, exaggerations, empty boasts and slips of the tongue, this one which Trump has made at least twice before, stands out for its sheer inexplicability.
    … a bizarre inability to remember where his own father was born.

    Ordinarily, when Trump says something ridiculous, it’s for an obvious purpose. He has been on an unhinged rant recently about windmills, whose function in the electrical grid he misunderstands and whose sound he says causes cancer.

    It really is quite simple. Everyone is smart except Donald J. Trump. That’s why they all are billionaires, and all got elected President. Only Trump does not know what he is doing. Only Trump does not know how to negotiate with Vladimir Putin. Anderson Cooper knows how to stand up to Putin. The whole crowd at MSNBC does. All the journalists do.
    They could not stand up to Matt Lauer at NBC. They could not stand up to Charlie Rose at CBS. They could not stand up to Mark Halperin at NBC Nor up to Leon Wieseltier at the New Republic, nor Jann Wenner at Rolling Stone, nor Michael Oreskes at NPR, at the New York Times, or at the Associated Press. But — oh, wow! — Can they ever stand up to Putin! Only Trump is incapable of negotiating with the Russian tyrant.
    Remember the four years when Anderson Cooper was President of the United States? And before that — when the entire Washington Post editorial staff jointly were elected to be President? Remember? Neither do I.
    The Seedier Media have never negotiated life and death, not corporate life and death, and not human life and death. They think they know how to negotiate, but they do not know how. They go to a college, are told by peers that they are smart, get some good grades, proceed to a graduate degree in journalism, and get hired as analysts. Now they are experts, ready

    Donald Trump is a true master of bullshit.
    Three out of four things Trump says are outright lies.
    Unprecedented, unpresidential, debasing and vulgar are only some of the adjectives
    that would be appropriate to describe Trump’s language.

    Trump obstructed justice, violated campaign finance laws, committed bank fraud, insurance fraud,
    witness tampering and violations of the emoluments clause.

    Donald Trump provides a robust example of someone who is, with respect to matters particularly
    relevant to the exercise of high political authority, neither well-informed nor especially intelligent.

    It is disturbing to find an important political figure who indulges freely both in lies and in bullshit.

      I am so tired of the Democrats victim paranoia. Obviously not accepting defeat is a qualification for being a democrat, even when losing an election. They shouldn’t even be allowed to run for anything if they can’t accept defeat. We don’t have time or money for their immature baby ways. We are tired of them and their garbage.8

    INTERESTING – ONE OTHER QUESTION. IF ELECTRIC CARS DO NOT USE GASOLINE, THEY WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN PAYING A GASOLINE TAX ON EVERY GALLON THAT IS SOLD FOR AUTOMOBILES, WHICH WAS ENACTED SOME YEARS AGO TO HELP TO MAINTAIN OUR ROADS AND BRIDGES. THEY WILL USE THE ROADS, BUT WILL NOT PAY FOR THEIR MAINTENANCE!

    In case you were thinking of buying hybrid or an electric car: Ever since the advent of electric cars, the REAL cost per mile of those things has never been discussed. All you ever heard was the mpg in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it. This is the first article I’ve ever seen and tells the story pretty much as I expected it to.
    Electricity has to be one of the least efficient ways to power things yet they’re being shoved down our throats. Glad somebody finally put engineering and math to paper.

    At a neighborhood BBQ I was talking to a neighbor, a BC Hydro executive. I asked him how that renewable thing was doing. He laughed, then got serious. If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you had to face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service. The average house is equipped with 100 amp service. On our small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla, each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded. This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles. Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So as our genius elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive, new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This latter “investment” will not be revealed until we’re so far down this dead end road that it will be presented with an ‘OOPS…!’ and a shrug.
    If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following. Note: If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It’s enlightening. Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors and he writes, “For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.” Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles.
    It will take you 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.

      Your bbq buddy is a liar. The home charging ports are 40-50amp at 240v. The tesla only pulls ampage that is available as a means of not overloading your breaker box. The charges use the same or less draw than an electric stove or dryer.

    According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.
    The gasoline powered small car costs about $20,000+ while the Volt costs $46,000+. So the American Government wants loyal Americans not to do the math, but simply pay over twice as much for a car, that costs more than seven times as much to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country.

      You are an idiot. Alliants kwh charge max is 12.3 cents a kwh not over a dollar. The volt is capable of charging in 30 minutes on 220 with a quick charger cable. It costs roughly 4 bucks to charge. You can’t even take the time to fine facts. You just spit out nonsense. Get some mental help, loser.

Or the party that continually persecutes Christians for prayer in public? Or the party that legalizes the killing of infants born alive in abortion clinics? Or the party that wants to bipass the constitutional process of the electoral college? Or the party that votes to give foreigners the right to vote in our elections? The Democratic party cannot win elections based upon their party platforms, so they must circumvent our political process in order to impose their unpopular tyranny. The Democratic Party’s moral high ground is based upon coercive lies.

    Besides being a draft dodging coward and enormous liar, Trump presents the symptoms of mental decline,
    including a bizarre inability to remember where his own father was born.
    Of all Trump’s many misstatements, exaggerations, empty boasts and slips of the tongue,
    this one which Trump has made at least twice before, stands out for its sheer inexplicability.
    … a bizarre inability to remember where his own father was born.

    Ordinarily, when Trump says something ridiculous, it’s for an obvious purpose. He has been on an unhinged rant recently about windmills, whose function in the electrical grid he misunderstands and whose sound he says causes cancer.
    Trump is in the early stage of 4th stage dementia.

It’s bad enough to get slow service, but when your food isn’t even hot and you then can’t find your server to mention this to them, then it’s time for a change.

    The Democratic party doesn’t care about Iowans or anyone else. They believe in slaughtering innocent babies even ones who are born not just pre-born babies. So why the hell would they care about animals or Farmers serving they wouldn’t. I vote for a Democrat is a vote for evil

    Democrat Senator Axne has proven to be very predictable, toeing the party line, and representing the Des Moines voters at the expense of the rest of this district. I can guarantee you if the disaster that has fallen on rural western Iowa would have happened in Des Moines her reaction would be different.

    I would like to Point Out The NONE of the Democrats That Are In the Running for Their Parties Nomination For President Voted For The Relief Bill EITHER! What does this tell Us!!!!

      He doesn’t have to take a dime of his salary. He is making far more than his salary in profits at his private resorts that we, the taxpayers, have to pay for Secret Service to stay there. Pretty funny when you remember how he ragged on Obama for playing golf; in his first two years he has played more golf than Obama played in his first term.

    The City of Mason City was recently honored with the 2018 Tree City USA Growth Award at the 29th Annual Community Forestry Awards Luncheon in Des Moines. The award was presented by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources April 3rd at the Sheraton in West Des Moines.

    “The Tree City USA award is a symbol for communities who have made a commitment to the management of public trees,” says state forester Jeff Goerndt. “Mason City has provided an outstanding example for other Iowa communities by enhancing our forest resources and demonstrating the great value of trees in providing multiple benefits for future generations.”

    Mason City was one of 16 Iowa communities to qualify for Tree City USA Growth status. To receive the award, a city must, at a minimum, provide education and public relations; partnerships; planning and management; and tree planting and maintenance in their communities.

    The Cerro Gordo County Conservation campgrounds (Wilkinson in Rock Falls, Linn Grove in Rockwell and Ingebretson in Thornton) will open Friday May 3. If weather permits all sites and the restrooms/shower house will be open, if not there may be limited sites and the restroom/shower house may not be open. The camping fee structure has changed (there is only one fee now), they are $15 per site if the restrooms are open and $10 per site if the restrooms are closed, but camping is still available.

    The Lime Creek trails are currently open to foot traffic and will be open to bicycle and horse traffic when trail conditions are suitable for their use.

    The Trolley Trail, between Mason City and Clear Lake, will be opened when conditions allow for a through sweeping of the trail and all regulatory signs have been repaired. This typically occurs in April.

    The Prairie Land Trail is open to foot traffic and bicycles, maintenance activities will begin as soon as the trail conditions allow for maintenance equipment.

    The Greenbelt and Preserve road is currently open to foot, bicycle and horse traffic and will open to vehicle traffic sometime the week of May 20th weather permitting. As always ATV’s/UTV’s are not permitted in the Shell Rock River Greenbelt and Preserve.

      It really is quite simple. Everyone is smart except Donald J. Trump. That’s why they all are billionaires, and all got elected President. Only Trump does not know what he is doing. Only Trump does not know how to negotiate with Vladimir Putin. Anderson Cooper knows how to stand up to Putin. The whole crowd at MSNBC does. All the journalists do.
      They could not stand up to Matt Lauer at NBC. They could not stand up to Charlie Rose at CBS. They could not stand up to Mark Halperin at NBC Nor up to Leon Wieseltier at the New Republic, nor Jann Wenner at Rolling Stone, nor Michael Oreskes at NPR, at the New York Times, or at the Associated Press. But — oh, wow! — Can they ever stand up to Putin! Only Trump is incapable of negotiating with the Russian tyrant.
      Remember the four years when Anderson Cooper was President of the United States? And before that — when the entire Washington Post editorial staff jointly were elected to be President? Remember? Neither do I.
      The Seedier Media have never negotiated life and death, not corporate life and death, and not human life and death. They think they know how to negotiate, but they do not know how. They go to a college, are told by peers that they are smart, get some good grades, proceed to a graduate degree in journalism, and get hired as analysts. Now they are experts, ready to take on Putin and the Iranian Ayatollahs at age 30.3

      Cutting funds for Special Olympics is wrong. Cuomo decided to not reduce funding by $50,000 after backlash from the public. $50,000 wouldn’t be much of a raise when divided among all the lawmakers. Trump was cutting $17.5 million.

          You are wrong. Trump’s budget ordered the cut. DeVos was doing what he asked and then when the public outcry became too great, he threw her to the wolves just like he does with anyone who makes him look like the bad man he really is.

            Parents are already in charge of the schools. That is what a school board does. Charter schools are for-profit schools. Some are good, others are concerned about one thing and that is profits. They have no oversight so they can pretty much do what they want. By the way, I had nothing to do with our school budget. That is determined by the school board. I wasn’t fired either. Another lie from eLViS and much misinformation as usual.

    When you commit a crime against children your rights should be taken away. This is the problem with the justice system. Where are the right of the children that he molested? They are supposed to have the right to say no but he took that away. Why should he have any right? The democrats call him a “dreamer”1
