(Anita, Iowa) – The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund has donated $500 to the Friends of Lake Anita, for their annual kids fishing clinic scheduled to take place the first weekend in June.  Fishing is a great sport that can be part of your entire life.  Fund spokesperson Melanie Petty (Trevor’s mom), said “Trev loved fishing in his down time, especially during his college years.”

The 14th Annual TFred Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on June 18th this year at the Atlantic Golf and Country Club.  All monies raised at the tournament are given back to the community that Trevor loved.  Although the tournament is full for this year there are still opportunities to donate.

Melanie Petty presents a check for the Friends of Lake Anita annual fishing clinic.

Melanie said “We are still taking items for the silent auction that is held in the clubhouse all day.  Hole sponsorships are also available for $100.  If you have time that day stop up and visit us to have lunch and bid on the items for the auction.”  The fund is a 501©3 Non Profit Organization.

Iowa State softball prepares for the Big-12 Tournament


May 10th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa State softball program continues to set new marks under coach Jamie Pinkerton. After suffering key losses off last years team that made it to an NCAA regional Championship round at Missouri the Cyclones take a 27-26 record into Thursday’s start of the Big-12 Tournament in Oklahoma City. ISU is seeded fourth, the highest seed the program has ever had in the tournament.

It has been a difficult spring weather wise and most of their practices have been in the football facility.

Pinkerton feels the inability to practice outside may have kept the Cyclones from peaking earlier.

Pinkerton says they have only had about a dozen practices in their stadium this season.

Iowa State opens Thursday at Noon against Baylor. The Cyclones took two of three from the Bears two weeks ago in Waco.

Non-profit has $50 million plan for ‘Field of Dreams’ stadium

May 10th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – Dubuque County Supervisors have approved spending five million dollars in federal funding on a permanent stadium next to the “Field of Dreams” movie site near Dyersville — and a new non-profit plans to seek other grants and private donations for the 50 million dollar project. Major League Baseball set up the playing field at the site for a nationally televised game last August, with another game scheduled there this summer. Travel Dubuque president Keith Ray says the ball diamond, fencing and lights are permanent at the site, so the new “This is Iowa Ballpark” non-profit plans to build a permanent club house, concession stands, restrooms and seating for spectators.

“We’ve had significant interest across the board, across the nation, across the world from individuals, teams that want to play at that site,” Ray says. “…We are trying to get the funds together to build a permanent, world-class, multi-purpose facility there.” Dubuque County Supervisors agreed to use five million dollars of the county’s American Rescue Plan funding on this project. Dyersville officials have approved one million dollars. Ray says the plan is for the stadium to host events mainly from April through November.

“To just showcase what Dubuque County, what rural, what Dyersville, what the State of Iowa is to millions of people,” Ray says. Ray discussed the non-profit’s plans at the Dubuque County Board of Supervisors meeting yesterday (Monday). Ray says it’s important to build on the momentum from the Major League games and the movie that inspired it all.

“Since 1989 when the first couple drove down the driveway from New York, came to Don Lansing’s farm and just wanted to go out on the ball diamond and play catch, it has become an iconic spot not only for the United States, but throughout the entire world.” This project to build a permanent Field of Dreams stadium is separate from the plan from private developers who intend to build a hotel, youth baseball and softball fields and dorms near the movie site.
