Maybe they’re just waiting for the second public budget and tax levy hearing, but Monday night, continuing what seems to be a longstanding tradition in New Hampton, nary a word was spoken or written when it came to the 2020-21 budget and tax levy for the city. Unlike past years, however, residents...
It’s crazy when you think about speech — the activity; not the ability to express thoughts and feelings by articulate sounds. Participants practice for almost two months — spending hours honing their pieces — and their season comes down to, at the most, eight minutes. And there are no timeouts, no...
Gayla and Bryan Hugeback are presented with the New Horizons-Chamber Volunteer of the Year award by the organization’s director, Jason Speltz (left), as their daughter and grandson, Maggie and Melvin Johnson, look on Thursday.
Andy Hugeback’s job Thursday morning was simple: Make sure his mom was at work by 9:30 a.m. “He kept telling me that Main Street Iowa was coming and I kept saying, ‘Dad can handle it,’” Gayla Hugeback said. “And he just wouldn’t give up. ‘Mom, you have to go.’ I should have known something was up...
MercyOne New Hampton Medical has tightened visitor restrictions at the hospital because of the high number of influenza cases it has seen and concerns about coronavirus. The hospital made the announcement on Thursday afternoon, a day after MercyOne made a system-wide decision to not hold any...
If the rumors turn into reality, the superintendent of two local school districts said there’s reason for concern. But Jay Jurrens, the top administrator at New Hampton and Turkey Valley, said there’s plenty of time before school districts have to hit the panic button when it comes to a state...
New Hampton Elementary School students head to their buses after the first day of school this academic year.
Although New Hampton and Turkey Valley Superintendent Jay Jurrens would like to see state lawmakers act relatively soon on a program that provides initiatives to school districts that share administrators, he will laud them on another issue. In fact, he did so Saturday morning when he publicly...
State Sen. Waylon Brown (left), R-St. Ansgar, makes a point as his House counterpart, State Rep. Todd Prichard, D-Charles City, listens during the monthly Chickasaw County Farm Bureau legislative forum that was held this past Saturday in New Hampton.
The two men who represent Chickasaw County in the Iowa Legislature don’t have a lot of confidence that lawmakers will finish their work on time in 2020. Both State Sen. Waylon Brown, R-St. Ansgar, and State Rep. Todd Prichard, D-Charles City, told those who attended a Chickasaw County Farm Bureau...
New Hampton Lions Club members serve customers at their annual French Toast and Pancake Breakfast Sunday morning that was held for the first time in New Hampton’s new middle school cafeteria.
A location change wasn’t going to cause the New Hampton Lions Club members any problems when it came to their annual French Toast and Pancake Breakfast. After all, they’ve been doing this for 48 years, and some would say the same guys have been doing the same jobs for that long. “I wouldn’t go...
TRIBE Trail Committee member Megan Baltes sells a Steak Fry ticket to New Hampton Mayor Bobby Schwickerath.
The money is nice, but the reality is that the annual TRIBE Trail Steak Fry is really more about “exposure” than it is about fundraising. “We keep it out in the forefront more than anything,” TRIBE Trail Committee member Megan Baltes said. “It does make a little bit of money, but we’re looking at...
Drs. Shea and John Epperly and their four children will be departing New Hampton this summer.
John and Shea Epperly agonized over the decision, but in the end, family carried the day.
