    On a chilly night with ice coating portions of the parking lot, couples began to flood into the Cedar Falls Recreational Center. It was time for ballroom dance class.
  • BALLIN AT THE SPORTSPLEX: AREA RESIDENTS STAY ACTIVE THROUGH ADULT SPORTING LEAGUES
    “You are going to meet others that enjoy the same sport,” Alex Hildman, recreation specialist at the Cedar Valley SportsPlex, said. “You are going to meet a large group of people playing in these leagues that you might not have ever seen yourself meeting outside of these adult recreational leagues.”
  • FEW SIGNS OF KNITTEL REMAIN AFTER 1903 ABANDONMENT
    Driving 11 miles East of Waverly down Highway Three, it would be easy to miss one of Bremer County’s 31 ghost towns. One of the lone remaining signs of Knittel, Iowa, is Del’s Auto Repair, located on the corner of Highway Three and Piedmont Avenue.

    “I do go and watch the Waterloo Black Hawks when I am not busy with school,” Riley Barrett, third-year physical education major, health and coaching endorsement minor at Wartburg College, said. “They are a great team to watch. A benefit for me is that they are only like 30 minutes away from where I go to school.”
  • VERVE KOMBUCHA BREWERY OPENS TAPS
    “People come in and say it was something they completely were not expecting,” Ted O’Brien, bar manager for Verve Kombucha, said. “They’re often surprised, usually in a good way. It’s cool to see them react and try something new when they’re downtown and usually not that far from home.”
  • NEW CEDAR FALLS HURTS DONUT LOCATION SETS RECORD
    Hurts Donut Company opened a new location in downtown Cedar Falls on Nov. 4, and has seen non-stop foot traffic since. The location set a record for the most donut pre-sales in a single day of any Hurts in America.
