No matter how state gambling regulators voted on Thursday (April 17, 2014), the decision on whether to license a proposed casino in Cedar Rapids was going to impact Waterloo and other Cedar Valley communities. The outcome was nearly unanimous.
Every kid who loves baseball and softball has that dream of someday playing the sport professionally. Later this month, the Waterloo Bucks are giving area youth a chance to show their skills in a competition that includes the possibility of playing in a major league stadium.
Technicians are working to restore phone service to Oelwein, Calmar and surrounding areas.
A CenturyLink spokeswoman says the network outage is currently impacting 911 services in both communities and some long-distance calls are getting a busy signal. Cell phone service is working and people in Calmar are encouraged to use their cell phones to dial 911 while those in Oelwein should dial 319-283-4311 to reach the police department.
The last day of classes for students in the Waterloo School District will be on Monday, June 9th (2014), even if there are no more cancelled days this year. Earlier this month, district officials said they were considering the possibility of using Good Friday (April 18, 2014) as a snow make-up day to keep classes from going into the second week of June.
However, after exploring the Good Friday option further, district officials have determined that it would be logistically impossible to hold classes on April 18th. Therefore, the district’s five snow days will all be made up, as scheduled, at the end of the school year.
The man convicted of killing two Waterloo police officers nearly 33 years ago has died in prison. Officials with the Iowa Department of Corrections (IDC) say James Michael “T-Bone” Taylor, 60, died Tuesday (March 18, 2014) at University Hospitals in Iowa City. Corrections officials say Taylor died of natural causes due to complications from an aortic aneurism.
When the 2014 high school football season begins in August, Cedar Falls, Waterloo East and Waterloo West will be renewing some old rivalries. Each team will be playing two games against former members of the now-defunct Big Eight Conference. All three teams will also be playing district football for the first time in history.
It’s never been done at the NCAA Division-III level until now. The Wartburg wrestling team won it’s fourth-straight NCAA Championship on Saturday (March 15, 2014) and in doing so became the first team in the country to four-peat.
The title is the 11th in program history for the Knights. The 11th team championship ties Augsburg’s NCAA record. The National Championship has been won by either Wartburg or Augsburg every year since 1995.
