A vote was passed in Monday night’s school board meeting to move forward with a Muscatine school system app for your iPhone or Android. It is noted that the production of this phone app will not cost the taxpayers of Muscatine a dime as private companies in Muscatine and Davenport have joined efforts to produce and market the phone app. They have created the first version and upon Monday night’s approval by the school board they will finalize the production. When the app is ready to launch, Muscatine students, parent and residents will be able to download the app for free and the app will be paid for by advertising revenue. The app will include features like the school calendar, school lunch menu, teacher information and more.
The Iowa State Patrol is investigating the crash that took place a little after ten on Tuesday night at mile marker 83 on Southbound 218 in Johnson County. It involved a collision between 56 year old Cynthia Glover-Nurse of Columbus Junction and 74 year old Dick Grover of Sioux City. Both drivers were injured and were taken to University of Iowa hospitals by ambulance. The Iowa State Patrol says both vehicles were southbound on 218 when the 2011 Peterbilt semi, driven by Grover, rear-ended the 1998 Chevrolet Lumina, driven by Glover-Nurse.
