Governor race takes shape early (10/11/05)
Voters won't pick Iowa's next governor for more than a year, but the race for the state's top office is taking shape in both parties. It makes sense for the candidates to focus on the race this early. First, Gov. Tom Vilsack, a Democrat, is not running for re-election. Iowa voters tend to re-elect governors, with just three governors holding office over a 38-year stretch. That leaves the race open in both parties, something that doesn't happen very often...

Letter from the Editor (10/11/05)
The front page of the Register declares that Iowa is hot for Oprah and Dr. Phil. Apparently those shows get their highest ratings of anywhere in the nation right here in the heartland. Now, I've got nothing bad to say about The Big O or the Good Doc - mainly because I'm one of the few persons on the planet to have never seen either of them...
My Life (10/11/05)

Guest Column (10/11/05)
I am one of those people you see riding a bike down the county roads of Iowa. In mid-summer, when the sun comes early, I can ride 20 miles before most people are awake, but the best time of year for riding is now.
