No. 25 Iowa ready for return of Oglesby

Sports

December 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Twenty fifth-ranked Iowa is gearing up for the impending return of injured junior guard Josh Oglesby, one of the team’s best outside threats. Now the Hawkeyes just have to find a place to play him.  Oglesby, who missed the first 12 games of the season with a broken foot, is expected to make his season debut when Iowa (10-2) hosts Arkansas-Pine Bluff (2-8) on Sunday.

But the Hawkeyes already use at least 10 players a game – and benches typically get shorter once Big Ten play starts. Still, coach Fran McCaffery views Oglesby as an important piece for Iowa with Big Ten play just a week and a half away.  McCaffery says Oglesby is a “full go,” adding that he considers Oglesby one of the team’s better players.

Points-a-plenty for Chiefs defense, special teams

Sports

December 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid keeps track of what he calls “miscellaneous points.” Kansas City has a league-leading 11 touchdowns from defense and special teams with two games still to play in the regular season. That’s the third-most in NFL history.

Reid says that you don’t expect to score those touchdowns, “but you strive to get them.” And they’re a big reason why Kansas City is 11-3 and headed to the playoffs. The Chiefs host Indianapolis on Sunday.

DNR plans winter release of trout in 7 spots

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

December 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources plans to release trout in seven spots around the state this winter. The program, which is financed by trout fishing fees, places the fish in areas where they couldn’t survive in warmer months. The trout will be released Jan. 10 in Fort Dodge’s Moorland Park and Big Lake West in Council Bluffs.

On Jan. 18, the fish will be released at Blue Pit in Mason City and Bacon Creek in Sioux City. Trout will be released Jan. 25 at Lake Petoka in Bondurant and at Spencer’s Scharnberg Pond. On Feb. 8, fish will be released at Ada Hayden Pond in Ames.

Anglers must have a fishing license and to have paid a trout fee.
