  • Students Lobby at Iowa Capitol

    (Des Moines) Students from across the state came to the Statehouse Tuesday as part of Education Lobbying Day.

     

    One component of their effort is aimed at getting a state law change that criminalizes delinquency on student loans by revoking a person’s driver’s license.

     

    Evan Burger of the U.S. Student Association says the Association and the students he works with  feel this is a bad policy. "If they can’t afford to pay back their student loans with a driver’s license how are they supposed to pay them back without a drivers’ license."

     

    Burger says Iowa and Montana are the only states with such a policy and an effort is underway in Montana as well to change the law there.

     

    He says sanctions imposed by the federal government should be penalty enough for students struggling with student loan debt.

  • Red Oak Girls Fall in First Round of State Tournament

    (Des Moines) Nevada celebrated a victory that was a long time coming.

    The seventh-ranked Cubs shot 55.6 percent behind young stars Lexy Koudelka and Clair Ausman and beat No. 9 Red Oak 54-38 in a first-round Class 3A game.
     
    This is Nevada's first trip to state since 1968 and its first state tournament victory in 91 years. The last was a 26-17 win over Crawfordsville in the first round of the 1924 tournament, before it fell under the auspices of the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.

    Koudelka, a 6-foot-1 freshman, hit 8 of 10 shots and scored 20 points. Ausman, a sophomore, made her first five 3-point shots and scored 17 points. She finished 5-for-6 from long range and 6-for-8 overall.

    Junior Kati Cassabaum added eight points, 13 rebounds, two steals and two assists for the Cubs (22-3), who have no seniors.

    Grace Blomstedt led Red Oak (20-5) with 14 points. Kate Walker, who'll continue her career at Bucknell, scored 11.

    Nevada never trailed after running off 10 straight points to open a 13-4 lead. The Cubs led 28-19 at halftime, then broke the game open with a 13-3 run in the third quarter to go up 43-24. Four different players scored during that run, with Koudelka getting six points -- all in the lane.

    Next up for Nevada is a semifinal date against top-ranked Mediapolis at 3:15 p.m. Thursday.
