Ready for spring? So are we. That's why we chose this shot from an old garden center in Eldora, Iowa, for this week's #OneSentenceStory. "Every spring, without fail, flowers popped up overnight at the old Bergstrom place even though the last Bergstrom left town 30 years ago." So what story would YOU tell?

Dear Editor, My family arrived in America in the tailwinds of the Mayflower some 400 years ago. We were some of the first settlers in Iowa, and though I have retired in Europe where I can afford medical care, most of my family still live there. I am enormously proud of my Iowan heritage. With great dismay, I have watched President Trump dismantle the America for which my ancestors risked their lives and fought in every war. Every American value has been trampled, and farmers in particular have been sacrificed for Trump’s tariff wars. Not once has Senator Joni Ernst challenged Trump’s policies on behalf of Iowans. At every step she’s enabled him to bring America to the lowest point in its history. That’s not building a future for our country that any of us want to experience. Please vote for Joe Biden in November. He is a decent man—and a true family man—with impeccable credentials, and none of that can be said about Trump. Mr. Biden also needs a Congress he can work with to rebuild America, not further Trump’s corruption, so I urge you to vote for Theresa Greenfield for Senator. Let’s vote for a government that truly believes in “We the People” and will work to improve the lives of all Americans. Thank you. Timothy Smith (originally from Greenfield, Adair County, Iowa)

📰 Eldora Herald-Ledger: "His literature sums it up saying that '…it’s time to put aside pointless partisan bickering to always put Iowa and our country first.' But at the same time, his political platform endorses the conservative staples. He wants secure borders, and a wall to secure them."
The MAT Tumbling and Trampoline Team traveled to Boone, IA to take part in a two-day USTA competition which held Olympic Trampoline and Double Mini Trampoline events on Saturday, and Power Tumbling events on Sunday. MAT had an excellent Green Team showing with around sixty athletes competing in Boone. Athletes were successful and are striving to make corrections and changes to their passes as the Team approaches the State Championships in April, which will once again be hosted by MAT Tumbling Trampoline in Marshalltown. For information on upcoming events or details about our program or classes, visit our MAT Tumbling page or go to www.mattumblers.com.

MAT Tumbling/Trampoline traveled to Iowa Falls to compete at a USTA tumbling/trampoline meet. Many of the athletes who attended the Iowa Falls competition are in their first year of competition, with this meet being their first or second meet ever. For the more veteran Green Team athletes routines and difficulty are being worked in and many adjustments are being made. The MAT coaches are proud of all the hard work these athletes have put in so far, and look forward to the progress as they get closer to the USTA State Championships which will be held in April in Marshalltown.
