    MURPHY’S LAW: RVTV Goes Out With A Bang

    By Andy Fales We’ve reached the end of the greatest week of RVTV ever. I’m not just saying that to be nice; I mean it. We’ve had some fantastic stops in past years–Knoxville, Albia, Nevada, Oskaloosa, and Carroll really stood out–but every single stop this week was off-the-charts great. We estimate that there were at least 1,000 people at each stop we made, and each of them had its own outstanding feature. Monday – Creston Mondays are sometimes tough for […]

  • STATE BASEBALL: Johnston ends East’s Record Breaking Season

    Des Moines East has taken its fair-share of lump when it comes to high school sports, so needless to say, the East-siders are ‘championship’ hungry. Johnston won their most recent baseball championship in 2008, but that drought has been long enough. Scarlets jumped out to a 2-0 lead when Colby Carmichael drove in Chino Alcala and Robert Hansen in the 1st inning. It stayed that way until the 6th when the Dragons hung a 4-spot. Their first run came on […]
