Chicago Farmer Rocks Iowa's Raccoon Motel In October

CHICAGO FARMER w/KEVIN GALLOWAY of UNCLE LUCIUS will hit the Raccoon Motel stage on Thursday, October 13 at 7:00pm! The son of a small town farming community, Cody Diekhoff logged plenty of highway and stage time under the name Chicago Farmer before settling in the city in 2003. Profoundly inspired by fellow midwesterner John Prine, he’s a working-class folk musician to his core. His small town roots, tilled with city streets mentality, are turning heads North and South of I-80. “I love the energy, music, and creativity of Chicago, but at the same time, the roots and hard work of my small... Read More

LATEST: Iowa Gov. Reynolds Signs Bill Allowing Employees To Escape Work Covid Mandates

LATEST: Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed a bill that would allow employees to escape employer covid mandates, including vaccination mandates, and allow greater use of medical and religious exemptions for people to refuse covid restrictions. On Friday night, Reynolds signed the bill, which the Iowa House and Senate had passed Thursday. It makes it tougher for businesses to require employees to be vaccinated or submit to other covid protocols such as regular testing. The bill gives greater leeway for employees to claim medical and religious exemptions against covid employer mandates and guarantees... Read More

Janie’s Riverview Cafe A Little Bit Of Home In Buffalo, Iowa

Janie's Riverview Cafe A Little Bit Of Home In Buffalo, Iowa

There’s a little bit of home, a little bit of vacation, a little bit of a view, but a lot of love at Janie’s Riverview Cafe in Buffalo, Iowa. This journey I’ve been on for over a year now to bring my reviews to every local restaurant has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. I meet folks, shake hands, bump fist, laugh and learn a little of their story so I can craft mine. If you drive too fast you might miss this quaint little stop a long the river, and that very well maybe a mistake. Home cooked styling and hearty plates will make you feel right as rain.

BREAKING: All Iowans May Be Eligible For Covid Vaccine In April

BREAKING NEWS: All Iowans could be eligible to get the covid-19 vaccine as early as April 5, if all goes according to plan, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said in a virtual press conference this afternoon. Reynolds said she talked to President Biden’s covid transition team on Tuesday, at which point they said vaccine production was going to be ramping up in the coming weeks, allowing states to be able to begin scheduling potential times for vaccines. Reynolds also addressed computer problems the state had been having with its covid data base and said they had been fixed, and should not impact... Read More

Iowans Are Smarter Than ‘Covid Kim,’ And They’re Proving It

Iowans Are Smarter Than 'Covid Kim,' And They're Proving It

Yesterday, I wrote about the moronic decision by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds to do away with her already minimal efforts to mitigate covid-19 — just as statistics were showing that Iowa is one of the worst, and least safe, states in the country in regard to keeping its citizens covid-free. I’d say her actions were ill-advised, but apparently, Reynolds took no advice in regard to making them. She ignored scientists, healthcare professionals (you know, those people she loves to pose for photo ops with, and hollowly praise as “heroes” while undercutting them with her actions)... Read More
