Three programs have been defunded among other cuts to services for individuals who have experienced sexual and domestic violence following the Iowa Legislature's decision to decrease funding for victim services by 26 percent.

I wholeheartedly support the Iowa City Community School District bond referendum. Here is why: 1. Our kids need it. Johnson County keeps growing, and our schools haven’t kept up.

Deeply rooted in American folk traditions, Mitchell manages a sound that is contemporary without being retro or revival — an extension of the sound, rather than a tribute to it. She is tomorrow’s folk singer. Mitchell’s 2010...

In the last few years B movies have stepped out of the cinematic shadows and into the limelight as legitimate, critically valid films. From John Wick to Green Room and, recently, Get Out, cinematic fare once considered schlock is now being taken seriously. Hollywood has been turning out low-budget commercial fare since its Golden Age — though there are...

Gov. Terry Branstad heralded this year as “one of the most significant and productive sessions in our history.” And it certainly did produce a large volume of wide-ranging, impactful bills. But for some, those bills represented a sharp lurch to the right and an abrupt end to bipartisan Iowa politics. Among the measures that left Iowa organizations and activists...
