The International Jugglers’ Association is coming back for a second time to Cedar Rapids for its 75th annual festival, where performers have one goal in mind: spreading joy.
Quentin Blazicek is one of four Cedar Rapids fathers who enrolled last fall in the Caring Dads program, a 17-week support group offered by Waypoint for dads who want to improve their relationships with their children to end or avoid controlling, abusive or neglectful behavior.
William “Bill” Alberhasky was the second-generation owner of the iconic Iowa City family-owned business John’s Grocery. His oldest son, Doug, described his father as an innovator and having a great sense of humor. The business has been in the Alberhasky family for more than 70 years.
One photo at a time has amounted to a life well-lived for George Henry, who lives in Cedar Rapids. A World War II bomber pilot, a river guide in Utah and Colorado for 45 years and a lifelong photographer capturing people and animals around the world, he’s retained the photo negatives that show a life captured positively.
