Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs made his mark on Mount Vernon. Many in town made their mark on him, too. Wirfs and his mother, Sarah, took The Gazette on a tour of his hometown, revisiting scenes around what essentially is the one square mile where he grew up. This story is a little about what can hold you back. This is mostly about what moves you forward.

The Family of Rita Bohr would like to thank
all of our family and friends for the donations,
beautiful flowers/plants, food, cards and, most of all, for the kind words said about our mom

support during this difficult time was greatly
appreciated. We all will miss her smile, her laugh and her hugs.
