NCAA has real problems

By BRYAN DAVIS EDITOR,

Our community is just fine

By BRYAN DAVIS EDITOR,

Kudos to the Indianola Police Department, the Fire Department and all of the other volunteers who made Gentry’s Homecoming a festive and safe night for visitors and residents.

I can hardly remember a time in my childhood or when I was going to college when it was as hot outside as it has been over the past few days.
