Register now for summer basketball camps in Cedar Rapids and Waterloo areas

Basketball campFormer NBA player, Acie Earl, lends his basketball expertise to players of all abilities this August.  Learn pro tips and techniques that are sure to take your game to the next level.
 
See the online link below to register your kid for summer basketball camps.  In the summer players are made, fall and winter teams are made.  Is your kid ready for the new style of basketball with no post or center?  The 3 point shot is now a must have premium with a need for superb ball handling.  No longer is the tallest, smartest, or most athletic kid is a sure starter.  Coach Earl predicts in the next 5 years, less AAU games and tourneys will be played and more time will be spent on development.  
 
Is your child ready to attend all the theme and specialty camps that are out there?  Or will you be the parent who will be sitting at junior high and high school games year after year because your child did not learn the skills needed and will ride the bench until senior night?  That is a lot of gas, popcorn, family passes, diet soda and clapping for other kids.  Pay now and play now, pay later and hope to play later.  
 
Back in my day growing up, a typical basketball kid went to one or two camps, their high school feeder camp and maybe a college camp.  That was 20 plus years ago.  Back then we all had a land line phone in our house, a TV with no cable and no outdoor courts or hoops.  We drank water from a jug or a garden hose, had cheap shoes from K-Mart or Sears and played with a ball that was orange and served as a dodge or kick ball when we had too many kids to play basketball.  Things have changed, and so now that we have embraced the changes in modern training, facilities, diet and exercise, why not embrace the change in basketball camps?

Johnson County Fair Mock Election Features Muppets (and president)

From the Johnson County Auditor's Office

Kermit the frogIt’s the Mock Election with special guests the Muppets!

In this year’s Johnson County Fair mock election, hosted by the Johnson County Auditor’s Office, voters of all ages will be able to choose their favorite Muppet. Mock election voting will be open 10 AM to 8 PM, Monday, July 25 through Thursday, July 28 in Building B at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.

The list of Muppets was very long but we’ve narrowed it down to the top ten:

·         Animal

·         Big Bird

·         Cookie Monster

·         Elmo

·         Fozzie Bear

·         Gonzo

·         Grover

·         Kermit the Frog

·         Miss Piggy

·         Oscar the Grouch

 

That may seem like enough excitement for one election. But we’re also voting on presidential candidates:

·         Hillary Clinton (Democratic)

·         Donald Trump (Republican)

·         Jill Stein (Green)

·         Gary Johnson (Libertarian)

The Auditor’s Office has hosted mock elections at the county fair since 1999.  Everyone attending the fair, including kids, will be able to see and use real voting booths and machines.  Last year, 1303 people voted for superheroes and presidential candidates.

Preliminary results will be posted during the fair. http://www.johnson-county.com/dept_auditor.aspx?id=20746

Grownups can also register to vote for real and request ballots for the November 8 presidential election. (Muppets will not be on the November 8 ballot, unfortunately.)

Acrobat/Juggler Laura Ernst to Perform at ICPL

Laura Ernst learned to juggle for her role in a middle school play, eventually transitioning her new skill to performances at street festivals. Today, Ernst has made a career out of her passion for entertaining.

The Iowa City Public Library is pleased to welcome the world-renown acrobat, juggler and entertainer to the Library for an all-ages show on Tuesday, July 12, in Meeting Room A. The program will be held from 7 to 8 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

Ernst’s performance is free and open to the public, but seating will be on a first come-first served basis. It will be broadcast LIVE on The Library Channel, Iowa City cable channel 20.

An Iowa native, Ernst received first place at the 2008 World Juggling Federation, a designation that places her among some of the best jugglers in the world. She also appeared on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent, during which her performance inside her human-sized hamster ball caused Howie Mandel to exclaim, “I love you! You are my soul mate!”

Ernst’s appearance is part of the Library’s 2016 Summer Reading Program, On Your Mark, Get Set … Read!
