Audubon falls to Lawton-Bronson

Sports

October 28th, 2015 by Chris Parks

The Audubon Wheelers and Lawton-Bronson Eagles played one half of football to a scoreless tie, but the Eagles got the offense working in the second half to come away with a 28-0 win.

After the defenses dominated the 1st half the Wheelers got the first crack on offense in the second half but they fumbled on their 3rd offensive play and gave Lawton-Bronson a short field at the 24 yard line.  Three plays later the Eagles were on the board with a 17 yard touchdown pass from Matt Herbold to Austin Peters.  The extra point try was botched making the score 6-0 at that point.

The Wheelers promptly went three and out and had to punt.  The Eagles then went on a game defining 13 play, 6 minute drive that was capped off by a 1 yard touchdown run by Herbold.  The Eagles converted the 2 point try and never looked back.

Lawton-Bronson would later add a touchdown pass from Herbold to Nathan Kneifel and a 4-yard touchdown run by Running Back Anteres Ashley to push the game to a 28-0 final.

The Wheelers end a great season with an 8-2 overall record and the Eagles move to 7-3 and advance to the second round.

Increase in Iowa’s pheasant population expected to boost hunter numbers

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

October 28th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

A lot of hunters are excited about the opening of Iowa’s pheasant season this Saturday (October 31). Todd Bogenschutz, with the Department of Natural Resources, credits an August roadside survey showing the state’s pheasant population has increased by 37-percent. “Our pheasant numbers have bounced up to levels we haven’t seen in about eight years, so I think there’s a little bit of optimism for folks heading out into fields this fall,” Bogenschutz said.

Around 50,000 hunters participated in Iowa’s pheasant hunting season last year — up from 40,000 the previous year. “I’d be surprised if we don’t jump to 60,000 or more this year. It could be the most hunters we’ve seen in a number of years as well,” Bogenschutz said. A good number of pheasants can be found statewide, according to Bogenschutz, but there are areas with thicker populations.

“As far as best densities in the state, there’s kind of a band that goes from northwest Iowa, down through Fort Dodge, and then over toward Louisa County,” Bogenschutz said. Lower pheasant counts were recorded in southwest, south central and northeast Iowa. Iowa’s pheasant hunting season this year runs from October 31 to January 10.

Officials consider Ferris Wheel, zipline for downtown Omaha for CWS fans

Sports

October 28th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority is considering adding a Ferris wheel, a zipline and party houses in downtown Omaha for next year’s College World Series and the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials. The Omaha World-Herald reports staff members presented ideas for more family-friendly activities near TD Ameritrade Park to the MECA board Tuesday. The proposal also includes temporary bungalows that fans can rent for games and a grassy area north of the CenturyLink Center with food trucks, the Ferris wheel and other activities.

The board’s chairman Dana Bradford says the additions are an opportunity to attract more people, and would cost about $1 million. The board did not vote on the proposed additions, but told MECA President and CEO Roger Dixon to pursue the proposal.
