Peters for Congress

A republican candidate for Congress will campaign in the Quad Cities and nearby cities this weekend. Christopher Peters from Coralville is challenging incumbent Second District democrat Dave Loebsack.

A major investment in Muscatine and especially its downtown, is now open. Thursday a ribbon cutting will be held to celebrate the completion of The Merrill Hotel and Conference Center. The 44 million dollar, 6-story hotel, is located along West Mississippi Drive, and across from the city's River Walk Park.

More help will soon be available in Muscatine for people with mental health issues. Last week, the Robert Young Center celebrated the expansion of its services with a ribbon cutting at its new clinic, and it's scheduled to open officially next week (4/16).

Muscatine Fire Department

Thanks to some local companies, the Muscatine Fire Department now owns a new rescue boat. And once it's fully equipped, it will be stored along the city's riverfront and ready to use.
