11 Iowa car has 140 horses under the hood - and one in the back seat
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | October 26th, 2017

A few days ago, Hannah Waskel was driving around Altoona with a friend. When they stopped for a red light and looked over at the car next to them, one of the passengers staring back at them seemed a bit peculiar. It took Waskel a moment to realize that the odd passenger was actually a horse.
12 Junior is coming to Iowa to hunt pheasants
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | October 19th, 2017

I suppose it's an honor, really. Having the president's son come to a little town in Iowa. Even if he is there just to hunt things.
13 Mom leaves child alone with gun while she vacays in Europe
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | October 12th, 2017

Erin Lee Macke, the 30-year-old divorced Iowa mom who left her young children home alone while she went on an 11-day vacation in Germany, has done a great service for parenthood. She has provided us with a picture of the Monster of Motherhood. Now moms can say, sure, I may have given my kids pizza for breakfast three days in a row, but it's not like I'm Erin Lee Macke. When the story of the jet-setting, hard-partying Macke went viral, the level of self-righteous hatred directed at her from all over the world was overwhelming. Don't be surprised to find Erin Lee Macke Halloween masks this year.
14 McIntire held a special election and the 'special' part is that nobody voted
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | October 5th, 2017

The good news is that when the town of McIntire, Iowa, held a special election last month, there was absolutely no fraudulent voting. The bad news is that there was no legitimate voting either.
15 Frank and Barron: The Prince and Pauper story
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | September 28th, 2017

This week, I've been scrambling to find the time to get our house ready for winter. I've been cleaning the furnace and making sure all the storm windows are tight. I've taken down the garden fence and stored the chicken wire. There is hardly any time left to mow the lawn. It sure would be nice if some enterprising neighbor kid would come along and do it for me. Which is exactly what Frank Giaccio did for Donald Trump.
16 PETA lawyers take a human to court over a monkey's selfie
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | September 21st, 2017

Who owns the copyright to a selfie photograph taken by a monkey? After two years in court, a complex and potentially precedent-setting legal battle addressing this issue has finally reached a settlement.
17 America's forgotten holiday: What is Labor Day about?
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | September 14th, 2017

Labor Day is a funny holiday. It marks the end of summer and the beginning of school. It is the cut-off date for wearing white, swimming pools close, and there are some great sales. Labor Day is also the day when many people, ironically, don't have to work.
18 Look at your windshield: Where have all the bugs gone?
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | September 7th, 2017

Two weeks ago, I stepped out onto our front porch, glanced up at the ceiling and stopped dead in my tracks. I had seen things like this before, but not since I was a kid. It was like seeing a VW microbus, or Elvis, or an encyclopedia - you know - made on paper.
19 Eclipse creates miraculous three minutes of darkness
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | August 31st, 2017

I know it sounds ridiculous to take off from work on a Monday and drive four hours just to see the sun disappear for three minutes. After all, if you're willing to wait for it, darkness isn't that much of a novelty. But estimates were that about half the population of the United States alone was planning to stop what they were doing to watch the moon's shadow briefly cover the sun, making this one of the most widely observed events in all of human history.
20 The race is on to choose a new Iowa license plate
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | August 24th, 2017

Iowans will soon be getting new license plates. Who cares? Well, it turns out a lot of people care. At the Iowa Department of Transportation booth at the Iowa State Fair (yes, the IDOT had its own booth) more than 85,000 people voted on Aug. 10 alone for their favorite of three possible license plate designs.
