It’s Thanksgiving, the time of year when politicians — including Gov. Branstad — take time to pardon turkeys ahead of the big holiday meal…

I always wonder what happens to those turkeys after they’re pardoned. I hear it can be really hard to find work if you’ve spent time in the pen.

Speaking of the pen, there are fewer entertainment options for inmates in western Iowa after the county jail cancelled their cable subscription…

So, if you see any ex-cons in western Iowa anytime during the next two to five years, DO NOT tell them how “Mad Men” ends!

An Iowa woman was arrested recently for allegedly throwing a container of pickles at her boyfriend’s head…

The alleged victim suffered no serious injuries, but he was jarred by the incident.

And, Iowa’s longtime democratic senator, Tom Harkin, is set to retire at the end of the year…

Harkin has spent the past 30 years in the U.S. Senate debating everything from Social Security to gas prices with a bunch of old white guys, so I’m guessing he’ll fit right in at Cumming’s morning coffee club. CV
