Dates with Nuts

By Doug Martens, ACT I Of Benton County · 10:35am March 5th, 2015 · 17 hours ago
The rehearsals for Dates with a Nut are moving fast now that we are at the Palace Theatre. You may think a 2 person show is easier than lets say a 10 or 20 person show. Not the case. Just as much work goes into a 2 person show. In fact, for this show, the crew triples the actual cast. As we get closer and closer to opening night the more exciting it gets.

Spread the Word: VS teachers join respect campaign on 3.4.15

By Dean Close · 5:55pm March 4th, 2015
Several Vinton-Shellsburg teachers, including sisters Alexa Francois at VS Middle School and Stephanie Francois-Miller at Tilford, wore blue or grey t-shirts on Wednesday with the message: Spread the word to end the word. March 4 is the date of the national effort to help Americans remember to speak more respectfully to one another.

It is certainly that time of year – a time when we are all looking forward to warmer weather just around the corner. It is also that time of year for the Vinton Kiwanis Club’s Annual Pancake Breakfast held at the Vinton Skate and Activity Center. This year the event will be held Saturday, March 7th from 7 AM – 1 PM, with a slight change in serving times to better accommodate people who attend.

By Vinton Today · 12:31pm March 3rd, 2015

The blankets are made of recycled material that was donated by church members and friends. Each patchwork square has a different texture for the children to explore, such as corduroy, fleece, denim, satin or velvet.
