$5 million facility near Sioux City to feature gun, archery ranges

News, Sports

August 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A massive facility that will attract gun enthusiasts in northwest Iowa is scheduled to open next summer. Officials broke ground on the five-million dollar project this week just across the Missouri River from Iowa in South Sioux City, Nebraska. The business is called Calibra8 (pronounced calibrate) and president Jason Rainboth says it’ll be the first of its kind in the region. “We’re going to have a 24 lane indoor gun range. We’ll also have an 8-lane archery range indoors, which will have a second tier shot, which is something you never see in an archery range,” Rainboth said. “We’re also going to have a full service pro shop and armory. We’ll sell guns, ammunition, and all the accessories that go along with that, but we’ll also be renting guns.”

The 90,000 square foot facility will also house a 24 hour gym and cross-fit training center, as well as banquet halls and meeting rooms. Rainboth believes the area will eventually host regional and national competitions. “For both the archery and the shooting ranges, we are looking to host IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) events…all the shooting circuits that are out there, we would like to be able to host those on a regional or national level,” Rainboth said. The company will also serve as a firearms training facility for local law enforcement and military personnel, as well as the public. That’s something Dakota County (Nebraska) Sheriff Chris Kleinberg says is an area need.

“Especially in the last year, the handgun purchase permits have been crazy. People want firearms, but the lack of training – with such – is a little nerve-racking to law enforcement,” Kleinberg said. “This facility will actually help with that, which is a good thing. I think every citizen should be armed.” Calibra8 will initially employ around 40 people, but Rainboth said they may eventually need 100 workers.

Cubs get 1st shutout in St. Louis in 16 years

Sports

August 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Anthony Rizzo had a two-run single, Chris Rusin pitched around seven hits in six innings, and the Chicago Cubs recorded their first shutout in St. Louis in 16 years with a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals on Friday night. Rusin (2-1) twice worked out of bases-loaded jams and only set the Cardinals down in order in the first. He struck out a season-high five and issued two intentional walks.

Kevin Gregg recorded his 24th save to complete the Cubs’ first shutout in St. Louis since Jeremi Gonzalez tossed one on June 23, 1997. Lance Lynn (13-6), attempting to become the National League’s first 14-game winner, labored over 6 2-3 innings despite giving up just three hits. He threw 115 pitches and was charged with all three runs.

Parker’s 2 TDs help Saints top Chiefs, 17-13

Sports

August 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Preston Parker had a pair of touchdown catches in his bid to fill one of New Orleans’ open receiver spots, and the Saints defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13 in the preseason opener for both teams Friday.

New Chiefs coach Andy Reid saw all he needed of new starting quarterback Alex Smith in the opening drive, which went 80 yards on 14 plays, capped by Jamaal Charles’ TD run. Smith was 7 of 8 for 68 yards. With Saints coach Sean Payton on the sideline for the first time since his bounty ban ended, Drew Brees was 7 of 10 for 65 yards in two series, which produced one field goal.

His longest completion went for 22 yards to rookie Kenny Stills, who like Parker is a candidate to replace injured deep threat Joe Morgan as the Saints’ No. 3 receiver behind Marques Colston and Lance Moore.

ISU Punter Van Der Kamp Named Pre-Season All-American

Sports

August 9th, 2013 by Jim Field

Van Der Kamp, Kirby13AMES, Iowa –Iowa State’s Kirby Van Der Kamp has earned respect nationally as one of the best punters in college football. He garnered more national respect this afternoon when Si.com placed him on its Second-Team Preseason All-America Team.

A native of West Des Moines, Iowa, Van Der Kamp, who was an All-Big 12 First-Team preseason pick, was named to the Ray Guy Award Watch List last month, an award given annually to the nation’s best punter. He was a semifinalist for the award a year ago.

Van Der Kamp, a three-time All-Big 12 pick, enters his senior season with a career 42.8 ypp average, the second-best career total in school history. But what sets Van Der Kamp apart from his peers is his ability to control field position with his leg. A total 72 times in his outstanding career he’s placed a punt inside the opponents’ 20-yard line, including 29 times last season.

“I think that Kirby Van Der Kamp is the best punter that there is in the country,” Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads said. “It’s not just his strong leg, but it’s also his ability to study his craft. He studies the weather and field conditions. He is one of the best I have ever been around.”

Van Der Kamp burst onto the scene in his freshman season (2010) when he averaged 45.2 ypp en route to Freshman All-America honors. He was recently named one of six ISU co-captains for the 2013 season.

Ellis’ 3-run homer lifts Dodgers over Cardinals

Sports

August 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A.J. Ellis hit a three-run home run and rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched seven stellar innings to help the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Thursday night. The Dodgers have won 17 of their last 18 games on the road, with the only loss coming Tuesday to St. Louis in the second game of the four-game set. Los Angeles returns home for a six-game home stand against Tampa and the New York Mets.

Ryu (11-3) allowed one unearned run on five hits while striking out seven and walking no one. He increased his winning percentage to .786, which is the highest winning percentage for a rookie in Dodgers’ history. Los Angeles spoiled the first Major League start for St. Louis rookie Carlos Martinez (0-1), who was called up from Triple-A Memphis earlier in the day to make the start.

Hawkeyes high on Powell

Sports

August 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — One of the many issues plaguing Iowa’s passing game last season was a lack of explosiveness, as it averaged only 5.8 yards per attempt. The Hawkeyes might have found major help from an unfamiliar source. The Hawkeyes, who finished 4-8 and just 2-6 in the Big Ten last season, have added one of the nation’s top junior college wideouts in Damond Powell.

The Hawkeyes had just 12 receptions of 30 yards or more in 2012. Powell was averaging a staggering 30 yards per grab for Snow Community College in Utah. Iowa offensive coordinator Greg Davis says Powell is fast and loves football. Davis says it’s the coaching staff’s duty to find ways to use Powell’s skills while he adjusts to playing for the Hawkeyes.
