Let Americans unwrap savings on prescription medicine

By Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lisa Murkowski These days it’s seems there’s scant agreement about much of anything in Washington.

From all across the nation, inexplicable price spikes for prescription […]

Let’s break silence and talk about mental health on the farm

By Sen. Chuck Grassley As this year nears its end, the Grassley family is grateful for another fall harvest.

Because what else could I possibly talk about this week other than Carson King and the positivity that he brought throughout not only Iowa but America too, over the last couple weeks?

Nolie’s Nook – Back To School Is Quickly Approaching

Back to school is quickly approaching for my big kids and so many others in our area. This year, I send my “babies” off to middle school (for the first time) and the other’s last year of elementary! I don’t know where time has gone but I know I’m not yet ready for summer break […]

Nolie’s Nook – I Probably Don’t Have The Popular Opinion Here

by Nolanne Rust I know I probably don’t have the popular opinion here- or maybe I do but I don’t realize it because most of what we see posted or hear in passing are the negative comments on Oskaloosa. And I get it to an extent. Sometimes we really just want better for our community. […]
