Editorial: Don't tamper with the separation of powers

We bristle again at this attempt by those in the legislature to tamper with the separation of powers established in the constitution they claim to be protecting.


Overton: Fund "mollusk porn"

I don't entirely disagree. Government should ensure it spends money effectively. Watching snails taking it downtown doesn't initially seem like a good use of funding, but neither does deriding this study without properly understanding it.


McKeag: Johnson County residents agree, so why not move forward?

I had heard the opposition's points, read their amusing flyers and took their word for it, knowing that our country has a historical track record of inequities in its justice system.  I would have voted "no" to any proposal put in front of me up until two years ago.


Phil's Day 2013: Philanthropy helps students reach goals

I was lucky. Donors and programs provided me with the bridge I needed to achieve my goals. I am a dreamer, and I have met many students at Iowa who are of the same ilk. I hope that they will be the ones building these bridges in the future.
