The best job in Nashua late Saturday afternoon? That’s easy — serving as a judge at the Best Dam BBQ Challenge. The pay may not have been great, but sometimes there are much better rewards than monetary ones. But before the judges went to “work,” the barbecuers spent much of Saturday putting their...
Brian Moore has big plans for what he thinks can be a gem for the Chickasaw County Conservation Board.

When the City Council meeting ended last Monday night, New Hampton Mayor Bobby Schwickerath turned to the city’s new attorney and smiled. “Hey, that wasn’t that bad, was it?” Todd Prichard couldn’t help but laugh and replied, “I survived.” In all seriousness, though, last week’s meeting was the...

Standing 6-foot-2 tall and weighing in at 230, Turkey Valley’s Collin Kleppe is used to pushing defensive linemen around. He’s one of the reasons the Trojans totaled 467 yards from scrimmage Friday night while whipping Rockford 60-12 in district action. But Kleppe’s pretty good with his descriptive...
New Hampton took a big stride between Week 1 and Week 2. The Chickasaws took an even bigger one between Week 2 and Week 3 as they used a potent ground game, a couple of big passing plays, an opportunistic defense and a big special teams play to beat Oelwein 50-20 in New Hampton’s final non-district...
