Warrior wrestling is still a work in progress

By Willis Patenaude, Times-Register

It was a busy week for the Central wrestling program, with a girls meet at Anamosa, a dual at Riceville and hosting the Central Invitational. 

The girls took center stage at Anamosa, as Maria Medberry and Rebecca Suhr represented the school well. Medberry placed second in the 139-pound bracket, going 2-1 with two falls, and Suhr placed third at 147 pounds, going 1-2 with one fall. 

One of Medberry’s falls took only 12 seconds over Addison Juhl from Waverly-Shell Rock and Suhr’s lone fall came in a swift 20 seconds over Corrigan Wilson from Marion.

Elkader Council discusses ongoing bridge, Carter Street projects

By Willis Patenaude, Times-Register

First, the council received an update on the Keystone Bridge Rehabilitation, a project that currently costs over $295,000—an overall cost that is far higher than initial estimates. There are numerous explanations for why this has occurred.

Birdnow Chevrolet has been a Monona staple for nearly two decades, since the Birdnow family bought out Huinker’s Chevrolet in 2003. Four years ago, Justin Birdnow moved to Monona with his wife and three daughters in order to work at the dealership full time.

“We knew we needed to do that because we wanted to be a bigger part of the community,” he said. “And we’re very glad to be here. I’ll never forget how open and friendly people have been, from church to the business, just everywhere. People here have always welcomed us.”

Now, Justin is cementing that commitment to the community, and buying the store from his family.

Reinhart's art inspired by nature

“I thought everyone was joking.” 

That’s what freshman Leah Reinhart said when she found out she’d been selected as Central’s Featured Artist of the Month. 

The young artist is often inspired by music, feelings and her surroundings, especially nature. Or just whatever feels right in the moment. 

It’s a creative process that doesn’t necessarily have a plan, but produces soulful results—like the big fish, which is her favorite piece. A time-consuming piece of work, it required innumerable attention to detail during the cutting process because Reinhart wanted to make sure everything was precise. It also taught her a valuable life lesson.
