Johnson County Unemployment Rate Balloons up to 3.2% in June

IOWA CITY, IA -- The numbers from Iowa Workforce Development are in and Johnson County's unemployment rate is going up, not down.  The county's unemployment rate was 3.2 percent for the month, that's up from 2.5 percent in May.

Readers should note that the second phase of the Johnson County Supervisor mandated minimum wage hike took effect on May 1, artificially inflating the minimum to $9.15 an hour.  In pushing the wage hike, supervisors told voters that the increase would provide more jobs.

Iowa football player has scary interaction with Iowa City police | WQAD.com

IOWA CITY, Iowa — What started as an afternoon playing Pokemon Go turned into a run-in with the cops that left an Iowa Hawkeye football player with some powerful takeaways.

Strong-side defensive end Faith Joseph Ekakitie explained in a blog post on Facebook how he was shocked when a group of police suddenly surrounded him with their guns pointed, but in the end he came out thanking them.  The post was written Wednesday, July 20, 2016, and started with this:

“Today was the first time that I’ve ever truly feared for my life, and I have the media to thank for that.”
