Former Iowa congressman Leach to hold discussion on contemporary politics at NIACC tonight

first_imgMASON CITY — Former Iowa congressman Jim Leach will be holding a discussion on contemporary politics in Mason City tonight. Leach represented eastern Iowa US House districts from 1977 to 2007 and currently is a visiting professor of law at The University of Iowa. Tonight’s event is part of North Iowa Area Community College’s Lifelong Learning Institute series and is sponsored by First Citizens Bank. The bank’s O. Jay Tomson says he’s seen a similar presentation by Leach where he talked about the difficulty of being bipartisan in a very partisan environment.  “He can relate back to the time of our founding fathers and the federalists letters and the difficulty we had in bringing an adversarial system forward in this country and being civil about it. We’ve had some very tumultuous times in our history, and we’re going through a period now when sometimes it’s difficult to be civil, and to gauge what it is we say to one another at a time when there are two sides to just about everything in contemporary politics in this country.” Tomson says Leach won’t be pushing one political side or another and will speak about our responsibility as citizens being educated so we can vote intelligently.  “He speaks as a statesman, not as a politician really. That’s the beauty of having Jim Leach because he is eloquent in his speech, his rhetoric is very good. He’s not here to suggest that you vote conservatively or liberally. He wants us to understand the history of our country and the politics we’ve been in, and we’ve been in severe dissidence in years past. We’ve been through a Civil War in this country. How do we gauge ourselves as citizens so we can speak to one another in a gentle manner?” Tonight’s presentation starts at 7 o’clock in the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus. It’s free and open to the public.last_img read more

Isco magic wins Super Cup for Real Madrid

first_imgHaving missed much of last season’s run-in due to injury, Bale is fit again, but it was Casemiro who emerged as the unlikely main threat going forward for Real in the first half.The Brazilian midfielder almost opened the scoring in the 16th minute, getting in front of Matteo Darmian to head a Toni Kroos corner against the bar from six yards.The breakthrough came just past the midway point in the first half as Dani Carvajal was afforded the time to flight a ball over Victor Lindelof — another United debutant — for Casemiro to stretch and volley past David de Gea.De Gea, formerly a Madrid transfer target, then needed to intervene to save a Karim Benzema snap-shot that followed a driving run into the area by Luka Modric, as Zidane’s side were restricted to a one-goal lead at the break.Mourinho sent on Marcus Rashford for Jesse Lingard at the start of the second half, yet it was at the other end that the chances kept coming.De Gea repelled a Kroos piledriver but there was nothing he could do to stop Isco making it 2-0 in the 52nd minute.Surrounded by red shirts just inside the area, Isco escaped their attentions by playing a one-two with Bale before coolly finishing past De Gea.Bale then struck the bar, and all this was going on without Ronaldo, who appeared from the bench to warm-up, raising hysterical cheers from the sizeable number of locals with sympathies for the Spanish side.United had a mountain to climb and were not helped when Lukaku blazed over after Keylor Navas pushed a Pogba header into his path.Lukaku did not make the same mistake twice, converting the rebound when a Nemanja Matic drive was not convincingly dealt with by Navas, but the goalkeeper redeemed himself with a vital late save to deny Rashford.And Real, with Ronaldo on for the closing stages, held out.Share on: WhatsApp Skopje, Macedonia | AFP | A delightful goal by Isco proved the difference as Real Madrid survived a Manchester United fightback to win 2-1 and lift the UEFA Super Cup in the Macedonian capital Skopje on Tuesday.Casemiro put the reigning European champions in front on 24 minutes on a steamy summer’s night in the Balkans and Isco doubled their lead seven minutes into the second half after a one-two with Gareth Bale.The gulf in class between Madrid — for whom Cristiano Ronaldo appeared as a late substitute — and Europa League winners United that Jose Mourinho had feared was all too evident and it looked like the Spaniards would go on to win by a wider margin.But Romelu Lukaku pulled one back just past the hour, marking his competitive debut for United with a goal and sparking a big improvement from the Premier League club in the final stages.It was to no avail, with Zinedine Zidane’s side winning this trophy for the second year running and the fourth time overall. It is the eighth time in nine years that a Spanish club has won the Super Cup.“It is all down to hard work. We know there is a lot of talent in this team and there is so much hunger too, they always want more,” said Zidane after lifting more silverware.“Today was an almost perfect match, and the first half was spectacular.”Real Madrid celebrates after winning the Super Cup.– Bale handed start –While Ronaldo started on the bench for Madrid having only commenced pre-season training at the weekend, Bale was included in the first XI.United boss Mourinho caused a stir on Monday when he claimed he would make a bid to take the Welshman to Old Trafford if he were not a starter at the Philip II Arena.Despite the presence of £75 million ($97 million) signing Lukaku up front, with Paul Pogba behind, United often gave the impression that they could do with some extra inspiration in the final third.last_img read more
