Time once again to share the mentions of me in the media in the last month, during February 2014. It’s been a month with a lot of work, but not a lot appearing about me in print.

Time once again to share the mentions of me in the media in the last month, during January 2014.

This is a little late since it’s from the Fall 2013 issue, but here it is reprinted with permission. Here is the Burr Oak Leaf article about my family’s experience having one of their Laura Birthday Parties.

Travel Times – RAGBRAI

I’m starting a new series of shorter episodes that are going to look at general travel topics. Some of them will be me talking, others I will interview someone in the know. This is the very first one and I interview Arron Wings, Dean of Library Sciences at Kirkwood Community College and frequent RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa) participant. I hope you enjoy it and will check back for the next time we check out Travel Times on Trundlebed Tales Radio Show.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS – The Hotel at Kirkwood Center

This was the news earlier this week. I’m sharing it because I’m excited about the hotel. With this opening it means that if there is ever an ice storm that I don’t want to drive home through that I can get to a hotel without crossing an interstate bridge. Thank you Kirkwood!

Sarah S. Uthoff

The Hotel at Kirkwood Center and The Class Act Restaurant are open for business. The first hotel guests, a couple from Keokuk, drove up at 8:30 last night. They enjoyed breakfast at The Class Act this morning.

Keep in mind, this facility is open to the public and all Kirkwood employees are welcome to dine and stay. There were multiple groups of employees that enjoyed dinner last night.

President Starcevich wrote an article for The Gazette as a guest columnist to appear this week. Here’s a preview of what he had to say:http://www.kirkwood.edu/site/index.php?p=23190
