Swimming Rams? Well three can be found at Glenwood Community High School: juniors Bradley Shearer, Spencer Smith, and Chase Sowers. The trio represent Glenwood Community High School, but actually swim for Lewis Central Swim Team. Despite being rivals- and the fact Glenwood does not have proper swimming facilities-Glenwood, Lewis Central, and Red Oak are able to put their differences aside and collaborate to create a team and swim for sport!

Boys Swimming

The Glenwood swimmers are very active in the team, making up approximately one third of the overall team. However, each one’s participation rages person to person. Shearer participates in the 100 meter breast stroke, the 50 meter free style, in addition to his participation in multiple various relays. Smith swims the 50 meter freestyle, the 100 meter freestyle as well as multiple relays. Despite being a new member to the team, Sowers swims in the butterfly stroke event.

Glenwood Police Department Settles into New Home

The small close knit community of Glenwood, Iowa may not be as small as seems. With approximately 5,248 community members, according to the July 2011 census conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, there is obvious need for protection and law enforcement.

Answering the call, are members of the Glenwood Police Department. The Glenwood Police Department has been protecting and enforcing prominent laws for well over a century, and with such authority and importance, it is blatant for Police Department to have a central location. After years of serving the community at the known 209 Sharp Street, the Department is retiring the location, of which was sold during a public auction, August 25, 2012. In accordance with move, the Department renamed 23 North Vine Street their new department headquarters. 23 North Vine also is ‘home’ to City Hall, Glenwood Chamber City of Commerce, and Glenwood City of Municipal Utilities. As the New Year rolled around, there are visible improvements and additions to the once home of worship.
