Podcast #64: Worcester Telegram & Gazette Snowsports Columnist Shaun Sutner

The Storm Skiing Podcast is sponsored by Mountain Gazette - Listen to the podcast for discount codes on subscriptions and merch.WhoShaun Sutner, snowsports columnist for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and Telegram.comRecorded onNovember 22, 2021Why I interviewed himBecause for skiing to thrive, it needs ski media to help tell its story. And I mean actual reporting-based journalism. Yes, it needs the hype – the cliff drops, the pow shots, the flippidy-doodle park brahs, this:But it also needs writers who can tell the story of the more approachable lift-served skiing world in which most of us dwell. Writers who know the local markets and local owners and local skiers and local idiosyncrasies. In the great ski media wipeout that swept away the bulk of our U.S. magazines, we also lost a lot of local ski beats. This matters. Good journalism, grounded in relationships and research, can counterbalance the noisy and atrocious swirl of social-media garbage that has become many skier’s primary information source about the sport.Sutner provides this corrective. In a snowsports column he has written for nearly two decades, he explores the world of New England skiing from his Worcester, Massachusetts base. He knows the people who run the ski areas, understands the market dynamics driving the sport’s evolution, and skis 80 days a year on the mountains he writes about. He knows the uphill and the downhill, the groomers and the backcountry, the people who can show him the stashes in all of them. There is nobody better equipped to help us understand what New England skiing is, how it became that, and what it might be in the future.What we talked aboutI can’t pronounce “Worcester”; the appeal of New England skiing; Southeast and Mid-Atlantic ski culture; Sutner’s long-running Telegram snowsports column; it’s beef time, snowshoers; what skiing loses when local journalism shrivels; the amazing snowy ski town that is Worcester; the slick operation at Wachusett; journalism’s rough transition to digital; newspaper paywalls; how to ski 80 days a year with a full-time job; surveying the Massachusetts ski landscape; the rise of Berkshire East; the renaissance at Catamount; the art of dodging large crowds at Stowe, Mount Snow, Loon, Cannon, and other busy mountains; regional ski passes; the Berkshire East-Wachusett French fry beef; you won’t believe which Massachusetts ski area has the highest base elevation in the state; thoughts on the state’s lost ski areas – Mount Tom, Pine Ridge, Brodie, Blandford, Mt. Watatic; the most endangered ski area in Massachusetts; the resilience of the Connecticut ski scene; Worcester’s cross-country ski park; the fate of Worcester’s once-thriving network of ropetow bumps; how Ski Ward endures; the distinct ski areas of North Conway; the explosion of the Mount Washington backcountry ski scene; the North Conway-Worcester connection; the appeal and frustrations of Attitash; brainstorming solutions for the atrocious summit triple; Vail Resorts’ evolving uphill policies; the odds that currently proposed expansions at Gunstock, Ragged, Sunapee, and Waterville Valley succeed; the buzz around Ragged; thoughts on Loon’s new eight-pack; the right balance between uphill and downhill capacity; Loon’s undersized gondola; the twisted history and fate of Tenney; whether Les Otten’s huge ski area development at The Balsams could succeed; the secret behind Magic’s comeback; beef with Mad River Glen; thoughts on the evolution of Stowe under Vail; how the Indy, Epic, and Ikon passes have changed New England skiing for the better; whether Vail’s crowd-management efforts will be enough to offset exploding Epic Pass sales; why the success of Hermitage Club matters to the average skier; whether the club will succeed this time; Boyne’s purchase of Shawnee Peak; the revitalizations of Saddleback and Bosquet under socially conscious investment groups; and Vail Mountain versus Beaver CreekWhy I thought that now was a good time for this interviewBecause Sutner’s column begins every year on Thanksgiving week, just as the Northeast ski season (typically) ramps up in earnest. It seemed like a good time to survey the happenings of New England skiing, from the concussive impacts of the Epic and Ikon Passes to New Hampshire resort expansions to the diligent multi-generational families running Massachusetts ski areas. And I wanted to help promote his column, a fine piece of weekly journalism that will make your ski season better.What I got wrongDuring the interview, I estimated the number of ski areas in New England to be “80 or 90 or maybe more.” The correct number is 90, according to the National Ski Areas Association.Why you should read Sutner’s columnBecause it’s focused, intelligent, researched, fact-checked, spell-checked, and generally just the sort of professional-level writing that is increasingly subsumed by the LOLing babble of the emojisphere. That’s fine – everyone is lost in the scroll. But as the pillars of ski journalism burn and topple around us, it’s worth supporting whatever’s left. Gannett, the parent company of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, has imposed fairly stringent paywalls on his work. While I think these local papers are best served by offering a handful of free articles per month, the paper is worth supporting if it’s your local – in the same way you might buy a local ski pass to complement your Epkon Pass. Good, consistent writing is not so easy to find. Sutner delivers. Support his craft.Where you can read Sutner’s columnSutner’s column kicks off Thanksgiving week each year and runs until April. This season’s inaugural edition, released yesterday, starts, as usual, close to his home base of Worcester. A preview:The last time I checked in with Chris Stimpson in this column he was a University of Vermont student on a barnstorming van tour of Western ski areas with a band of fellow collegiate free skiers.Stimpson, now 28, is the new media spokesman and public relations manager for Wachusett Mountain Ski Area as of this season, and also serves as the ski area’s terrain park manager. He’s part of a group of third-generation Crowley family members who occupy key roles at the thriving family business founded by their grandfather, Ralph Crowley, in 1969.Stimpson’s cousin David Crowley Jr. is the operations manager, and cousin Courtney Crowley is the new head of group sales. …What this generational shift in the making means for Wachusett customers is that the independent ski area is in solid, experienced family hands for the future and is not likely to ever be sold off to a big corporate chain.Read more…A few of Sutner’s past columns:Earliest Ski-Area Opening in Northeast Goes to Wachusett (Nov. 27, 2020)Winchester a Fresh Voice on Northeast Ski Scene (Dec. 9, 2020)New Hampshire’s Black Mountain ‘Is Like a Trip into the Past’ (Feb. 17, 2021)Ski Industry Makes Strides Toward Inclusion (March 31, 2021)Follow up on stuff we talked about in the interviewFollow Shaun on Twitter, Instagram, and FacebookShaun and I discussed this lost ski area in Van Cortland Park in The Bronx.

Collectively, they were known as “the 3 Patties.” On a cold, rainy Wednesday night in October, Patty Ann called her mom to say she'd be late coming home from her boyfriend's house where she was playing Trivial Pursuit. The next morning, family and police discovered her belongings in an alley near the train tracks and her body in a window well at a factory on Grand Street. Before her passing, Patty's mother told the Telegram and Gazette, "I still have to believe that somebody saw something that night, or the murderer has told somebody something, and that person or persons aren't talking.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for  Saturday, October 30, and Sunday, October 31. October's last weekend will end with sunny skies, and the warmest weather we should see for a little bit, so don't be afraid to get out and enjoy yourself. On Saturday it will be partly sunny, with a high near 55 degrees. A north wind will blow from 5 to 10 mph. Saturday night it will be partly cloudy and a little windier, with a low temperature around 41 degrees. It will be windier still Sunday, and that wind appears to be cold, as the high temperature will drop down to 51 degrees with sunny skies. Sunday the temperature will drop still further, with a low around 31 degrees.  Thankfully Halloween night should not feature the miserable rain that Iowa traditionally offers trick-or-treaters, but warm costume ideas will be welcome ones. The week concluded with some drama for the Cedar Rapids Mayoral race right before election day next Tuesday.  Entrepreneur Steve Shriver said Friday he quit as chair of Amara Andrews' campaign for Cedar Rapids mayor over “strategic differences” after her team acknowledged it coordinated with a political action committee to send a mailer to voters criticizing rival Tiffany O'Donnell, claiming she has touted herself as a Reagan Republican while hiding more extreme conservative views. Shriver said this is an example of the pernicious side of politics that he doesn't want to be a part of. This is a continuation of an open debate among candidates about whether party affiliation should be brought into the mayoral race at all. Andrews, billing h erself as a progressive Democrat, has argued partisan views should be a part of the race, while O'Donnell and incumbent Mayor Brad Hart, both Republicans, argue the mayoral position is nonpartisan.  I will leave it to you to decide why they are squabbling about party affiliation in a city that tends to favor Democrats. In the meantime I suggest you check out thegazette.com to see where all 4 mayoral candidates stand on issues that might affect you directly. If you click Elections at the top of the main page it will take you to our elections coverage, with the latest coverage as well as candidate profiles. Finally, whomever you favor, please vote in your local elections on Tuesday. Iowa business leaders said Friday they are concerned that expanding exemptions from workplace COVID-19 vaccination requirements — and protecting jobless benefits for those who refuse to follow a mandate — may result in unintended consequences or added costs related to the surprise changes enacted by the Iowa Legislature and signed into law Friday by Gov. Kim Reynolds. The swift arrival of https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislation/BillBook?ga=89&ba=HF902 (House File 902) and its passage during Thursday's one-day special legislative session added to the frustration and confusion that Iowa employers already were facing due to vaccination mandates that now are in conflict with the new state requirement that they exempt employees who claim a medical or religious exemption. While business leaders are not fans of federal mandates in general, they are concerned about the Iowa laws for two main reasons: one, workers who opt to take the unemployment they now qualify for instead of complying with getting vaccinated could make the already challenging effort of finding employees even harder; two, a new layer of complexity when it comes to new exemptions raises the probability a business will make a potentially harmful mistake. Gov. Reynolds took the action on the same day that Iowa joined nine other states in a lawsuit challenging President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for all workers employed by a federal contractor, which is one-fifth of the nation's workforce.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Friday, October 29. The 24-hours of rain will finally come to an end early Friday morning. According to the National Weather Service the rain will mostly cease by 7 a.m. After that it will be cloudy, with a high near 53 degrees. It will also be windy, with a north wind of 15 mph gusting as high as 35 mph. Friday night it will be partly cloudy, with a low around 40 degrees. The wind will slow down just a tad, at 10 to 15 mph. Turns out that the second time was the charm for Iowa's Redistricting efforts. After months of political and pandemic-related delays, and the rejection of the first plan for establishing new congressional and legislative election boundaries, the Iowa Legislature approved a redistricting plan Thursday for the next decade. On a 48-1 vote, the Senate approved https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislation/BillBook?ga=89&ba=SF621 (Senate File 621 )to create new congressional and legislative districts. The House followed suit 93-2, with five legislators absent. Although the consensus is that the plan is GOP-friendly, Senate Democrats said they backed it because it meets the requirements of Iowa law and the state's constitution. Also completed Thursday were some minor protections for workers who lose their jobs after resisting mandatory vaccinations.  These Iowans would still be able to collect unemployment benefits under legislation passed by the General Assembly and headed to Gov. Kim Reynolds for her expected signature. Iowa Republicans said Thursday that ideally they would like to do more to allow people to resist mandatory COVID-19 vaccination, but this appeared to be the most they could do without risking a legal challenge. Hunter Companies has withdrawn its preliminary subdivision plat for the former Transamerica site, saying it wants to gather more neighborhood input. Plans for the 51-acre site on Edgewood Road NE had been scheduled to come before the City Planning Commission on Thursday afternoon Hunter Companies is buying the land from Transamerica and pursuing a mixed-use development there. Neighbors concerned about the project created an active Facebook groupto make their concerns known. It had 129 members as of Thursday afternoon. Organizer Dave Watson said he thinks Hunter is a great option to develop the property but he wants the developer to work with the neighborhood. The list of concerns include saving trees, retaining retention ponds, providing more green space as part of the development; and worries about increased traffic. When it comes to drinking water, several Iowa communities have high-quality H2O, says a panel of celebrity judges. But none better, apparently, than the defending champions, Keokuk. The Iowa chapter of the American Water Works Association held a blind taste test Wednesday at the Double Tree convention complex to determine which Iowa community offers the best-tasting drinking water. Cedar Rapids was this year's host city. Keokuk's water emerged at the top of a sample of seven Iowa cities' drinking water. The entries were judged on appearance, odor, taste and aftertaste by a panel of local media personalities, special guests and a host city representative.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Thursday, October 28. Rain is on tap for Thursday. According to the National Weather Service there will be a high chance for showers for much of the day, with a high of 51 degrees. On Thursday night the low temperature, interestingly enough, will only drop to 47 degrees, a sign of a slightly warmer Friday that will also probably have less rain. Iowa's COVID-19 numbers have received their weekly update, and it was reported that 117 more Iowans died of COVID-19. All of these deaths occurred in September and October, according to the Iowa Department of Public Health. 100 deaths were reported the previous week. Statewide, the COVID-19 death toll now totals 6,965 since March 2020 when the virus first appeared in Iowa. New case numbers were roughly the same as the week before, with the under 17 age group again leading the way for most new cases. With COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 5 to 11 expected to gain federal approval by next week, state and local health officials are preparing to administer shots to thousands of young Iowans in the coming weeks. The Iowa Department of Public Health anticipates the approximately 284,000 Iowans in that age group can start receiving shots by the first week in November, pending an emergency use authorization. Vaccine experts are meeting over the next week to offer final recommendations on the two-dose coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech. In anticipation of a surge in demand for the shots, federal officials have already purchased enough pediatric doses for the estimated 28 million Americans who will become eligible. A judge has upheld the firing of former Cedar Rapids police Sgt. Lucas Jones, saying the termination was supported by evidence of dishonesty and violation of departmental policies. Sixth Judicial District Judge Christopher Bruns, in an Oct. 5 ruling, said Police Chief Wayne Jerman's finding — that Jones was dishonest about an Oct. 30, 2016, traffic stop and that he had violated two departmental policies — is supported by substantial evidence and Iowa law. The firing was later affirmed by the city's Civil Service Commission after Jones appealed his termination. The reason given for firing Jones was that he had been dishonest when confronted about having his microphone turned off during a traffic stop.  According to the Cedar Rapids Police, a pattern of Jones turning off his microphone while in the field was discovered during an internal investigation into the shooting of a Black motorist named Jerime Mitchell. Jones shot Mitchell during a Nov. 1, 2016, traffic stop near Coe College after stopping Mitchell for having a light out on his pickup truck's license plate. Mitchell was paralyzed in the incident and successfully sued the city for damages.

Instead of the expected $60 to $75 million shortfall UI Athletics Director Gary Barta last August cited in eliminating men's and women's swimming and diving, men's gymnastics and men's tennis, UI Athletics ended the budget year June 30 with a $42.9 million deficit, according to a new Board of Regents report.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Wednesday, October 27. Wednesday's weather will be a transitional one between the sun of Tuesday and the rain predicted to come Thursday. According to the National Weather Service, it will be mostly cloudy in the Cedar Rapids area with a high near 58 degrees. A southeast wind of 15 mph could gust as high as 25 mph. There will be a low of 45 degrees Wednesday night, with a possibility for rain as it turns into Thursday morning. A report of sexual assault at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity at the University of Iowa that spawned widespread protests earlier this fall now is at the center of a lawsuit seeking enough money to act as a deterrence to others. In the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Johnson County District Court, UI student Makena Solberg — who names herself in the filing — reports being sexually assaulted by two members of the fraternity, which goes by FIJI, on Sept. 4 into Sept. 5, 2020. She identified the defendants as FIJI “members, directors or officers” Carson Steffen and Jacob Meloan. She accuses the two men of sexually assaulting her while she was incapacitated and then sharing video and photos of the assault online in a group chat. A former assistant track coach at Linn-Mar High School and owner of a high school sports photography and video service in Marion was formally charged Tuesday with holding a 17-year-old male student in a school office bathroom and sexually abusing him during a Sept. 27 “training program.” Kameron Martelle Beets, 29, of Cedar Rapids, is charged with third-degree sexually abuse, third-degree kidnapping, sexual exploitation of a minor, sexual exploitation by a school employee and invasion of privacy. The criminal complaint was filed Oct. 22 when a warrant was issued for Beets, but he wasn't arrested until 5 p.m. Monday by Marion and Cedar Rapids police in southwest Cedar Rapids. The complaint was made public Tuesday when Beets made an initial appearance in Linn County District Court. MidAmerican Energy is adding sun power to its renewable energy portfolio, utility officials said Tuesday. The Des Moines-based energy company is taking the final steps to flip the switch at its first utility-scale solar energy project located in Waterloo. In mid-November, MidAmerican will power-up the 3-MW Waterloo solar project, made up of nearly 10,000 solar panels with capacity to serve nearly 650 average Iowa homes. In addition to the Waterloo solar array, MidAmerican plans to have more projects online this year elsewhere in Iowa that will add 61 megawatts of solar power.  According to the Associated Press, the U.S. moved a step closer to expanding COVID-19 vaccinations for millions more children as a panel of government advisers on Tuesday endorsed kid-size doses of Pfizer's shots for 5- to 11-year-olds. A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel voted unanimously, with one abstention, that the vaccine's benefits in preventing COVID-19 in that age group outweigh any potential risks — including a heart-related side effect that's been very rare in teens and young adults despite their use of a much higher shot dose. The FDA is not bound by the panel's recommendation and is expected to make its own decision within days. Are you a fan of trying in new restaurants?

According to the National Weather Service, we can expect a mostly cloudy day, then it will gradually become sunny, with a high near 52. It will be breezy, with a north wind 10 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Then tonight, we'll have areas of frost after 3 a.m. Otherwise, mostly clear, with a low around 34. An Iowa City man was killed Friday evening while checking damage to a vehicle he was in that had just struck a deer and become disabled on Interstate 35, according to the Iowa State Patrol. 69-year-old Steven Kohli was a passenger in a Lincoln compact sport utility vehicle being driven by 66-year-old Michael Kohli on southbound Interstate 35. At about 7:25 p.m., an hour after sunset, the vehicle struck a deer and became disabled in the outside lane, near mile marker 45, in the southwest corner of Warren County. According to the crash report, Steven got out to look at the damage and was struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by a 69-year-old Minnesota man, who was trying to drive around on the right side of the SUV because of vehicles in the left lane. No other injuries were reported. Breanna Oxley announced Saturday she won't run for a state Senate seat — where she would have faced a fellow Democrat — and instead will run for a Linn County supervisor position coming open. Supervisor Stacey Walker announced earlier this week that he would not be running for re-election in 2022, leaving an open race for the District 1 seat. No one else has yet announced for the seat, which pays $119,198 a year and represents a majority of Cedar Rapids, including downtown and the south side. Oxley, age 30, a social studies teacher at Roosevelt Middle School, is the granddaughter of Jean Oxley, the first woman elected as a Linn County supervisor and the longest-serving member of the board.

If you have chores or recreation that requires being both dry and outside this weekend, I recommend doing all that on Saturday. According to the National Weather Service, after widespread frost in the morning it should be sunny with a high near 56 degrees in the Cedar Rapids area on Saturday. Saturday night it will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 42 degrees. On Sunday there will be rain possible early and rain likely late, with a near 100 percent precipitation prediction after 1 p.m. There will be a high near 51 degrees. Thunderstorms are also possible, with rainfall totals of more than an inch accumulation predicted for the day. Officers investigating a https://www.thegazette.com/crashes/iowa-city-native-fighting-for-his-life-after-being-shot-as-he-drove/ (Sunday night shooting) in south Iowa City that has a 20-year-old Marine fighting for his life have identified a person they suspect to be “responsible for the driver's injury” and believe the shooting was “unintentional.” Although police say they know who the person of interest is, they have not made an arrest and are not releasing their name while investigation into the incident continues. At 6:37 p.m. Sunday, officers found Gabriel Heefner with a gunshot wound to the head and unconscious in his vehicle, which had crashed into a median west of the Highway 6 and Sycamore Street intersection. He was the only person in the car. Heefner remains hospitalized as doctors work to control the swelling caused by the shooting. The Iowa Economic Development Authority on Friday awarded $1.5 million in tax credits to fuel the redevelopment of two downtown Cedar Rapids housing projects. Together, the projects will add 84 housing units. The first proposal from developer Steve Emerson will convert the upper floors of the Iowa Building, 211 Fourth Ave. SE, into downtown housing units. The state will give $750,000 in tax credits to the project. Another Emerson project also will receive $750,000 in tax credits to convert the old Skogman Realty headquarters, at 411 First Ave. SE, into the Palmer Building housing development.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Friday, October 22. The sun should return Friday, but not the warmth of earlier in the week. According to the National Weather Service, the cold air could result in some patchy frost Friday morning in the Cedar Rapids area, but it will not linger long. The high is expected to be 55 degrees with sunny skies. Widespread frost is predicted for the weekend and rain appears likely on Sunday. Round two of Iowa politicians politicking about redistricting appears to be going similar to the way round one went.  The nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency released a second plan Thursday after the first plan was unanimously rejected by Iowa Senate Republicans. The second plan addresses what was one of the stated concerns of those Senators, removing some of the irregular shapes found in the first plan. Using population numbers from the census, the agency is guided by law to, as much as possible, create districts that are square, rectangular or hexagonal so as to avoid irregular-shapes. The agency is also supposed to create these districts without political ramifications in mind. Political ramifications, however, are never far from a politician's mind. Just like with the first plan, Iowa Democrats declared public support for the plan. Also, just like the first plan, Iowa Republicans were not so hasty, leaving open the possibility that they could reject the second plan. It should be noted that this map will leave the status quo closer to the current boundaries than the first map did, which might appeal to Republicans enough to pass it, as they hold majorities in every level of Iowa government. Lawmakers will meet Oct. 28 to make a decision on accepting this second plan. If the second map fails to gain approval, the agency has 35 days to submit a third map, that lawmakers can then offer edits to. Discovered Sunday night with a gunshot wound in a crashed car, Marine Gabriel Heefner is “fighting for his life” in intensive care, his father told the Gazette. Meanwhile Iowa City police continue to investigate the shooting. https://www.thegazette.com/crashes/man-in-critical-condition-in-iowa-city-after-crash-gunshot-wound/ (Police said )Heefner's vehicle left the roadway and crashed into the median just west of Sycamore Street. The 20-year-old Heefner was found in it, shot in the head. According to his father, Heefner had been visiting his grandparents in Iowa City and on his way to pick up food when the shooting occurred. The bullet entered through the driver's side window, which was slightly open. Iowa City police said Tuesday evening they have identified a person of interest in the shooting, but an arrest has not been made and this person's name has not been made public. According to reporting from the Ames Tribune, two Iowa State University crew club members were participating in their first practice on the water when they drowned in March.  The revelations come as part of an investigation into the incident. It is believed that the inexperience of the members and the fact that the pandemic had kept the crew off the water for 18 months led them to disregard some red flags, such as a wind speed that was slightly higher than advisable in the club's own rules. Yaakov Ben-David, 20, and Derek Nanni, 19, died after the boat they were in capsized on Little Wall Lake, about 20 miles north of the university's campus in Ames. Three other members made it to shore, two of them with help from bystanders. Iowa State has previously announced it was suspending the club for at least the remainder of the current school year to give the club time to implement necessary health and safety measures.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Thursday, October 21. Whereas Wednesday's weather featured the happy, sunny weather of early fall, Thursday will feature the cold and cloudy offerings of late fall. According to the National Weather Service it will be cloudy with a high near 55 degrees in the Cedar Rapids area. A wind of 15 mph will gust as high as 25 mph. Thursday night there will be a low of 36 degrees, and this will come with a chance for frost.  One hundred Iowans died this past week of COVID-19, the most deaths confirmed in a one-week period since April, though the number of new COVID-19 cases has decreased for the fourth consecutive week. State public health officials reported 6,907 new COVID-19 cases in the past week, compared to 8,167 cases the week before. The under 17 age group, one of the least vaccinated age groups, was again the largest age group with new cases. When factored in with the fact that those not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 account for 77.2 percent of COVID-19 hospitalizations, it continues to bear out that vaccines not only slow down the spread of the disease, they reduce the severity of symptoms for those who have breakthrough infections. Linn County Supervisor Stacey Walker said Wednesday he will not seek re-election next year after serving six years on the board, instead taking what he calls a “leap of faith” into new endeavors that include helping progressive candidates get elected. Walker, 33, the board's current chair, was first elected in 2016.  His seat will be up for election in 2022 with the term ending in January 2023. The Linn County Board of Supervisors now consists of Walker and Ben Rogers, both Democrats, and Louis Zumbach, a Republican. They each earn just under $120,000 a year.  According to the Associated Press,  unemployed Iowans would be required to meet weekly with state case managers, conduct twice as many weekly work searches and undergo audits to prove they're actively looking for work under a new proposal announced at a news conference Wednesday by Gov. Kim Reynolds. Unemployment payments could be frozen if unemployed workers fail to meet the new criteria. Reynolds said some of the changes will require legislative approval but didn't elaborate.  Workforce Development Director Beth Townsend said more than 86,500 job openings are posted on the Iowa Workforce Development website spanning all industries statewide. She said nearly 68,000 Iowans remain unemployed. Iowa State Patrol Trooper Ted Benda died Tuesday, five days after crashing his patrol car while responding to a call in northeast Iowa. Benda, 37, was assisting the Clayton County Sheriff's Office with a call for service around 11:30 p.m. last Thursday when he was involved in a single-vehicle crash on Highway 51, about six miles north of Postville, the Sthttps://www.thegazette.com/crashes/trooper-in-critical-condition-after-northeast-iowa-crash/ (ate Patrol reported last week.)

Penn State hosts Illinois for their annual homecoming game on Saturday under new Head Coach Bret Bielema. What are the Illini shaping into under the former Wisconsin coach? Scott Richey, who covers Illinois football for The News Gazette joins host Thomas Frank Carr to discuss Bielema, the team and how things have gone so far this season.    They start with Bielema's comments this week where he seemingly threw several parts of his team under the bus and Scott's interpretation of what the first-year head coach was trying to say. Then they get into what it's been like for Illinois fans and how they're reacting to their new head coach after several very unsuccessful seasons under previous Head Coach Lovie Smith. T-Frank also asks for Scott's impressions of Bielema so far.    After that they get into the roster as it stands and start that quarterback position, which has been a revolving door with the constant injuries to Brandon Peters. Richey gives an update on who might start on Saturday as well as his prediction on how Peters will fare this week based on what Bielema said earlier.    Then they discuss the offensive line and their abilities, and inabilities as players on the field. Richey gets into the strength of the Illinois offense and then says why the weakness of the offensive line is potentially more detrimental than what it does well.  The receivers are next and Richey paints an even bleaker picture for their capabilities through seven weeks of the season. Finally they end on a positive note for the Illini, focusing on the running backs, which have been the most productive part of the offense.  After that T-Frank brings up Bielema's comments from earlier this week and pushes back on what the head coach had to say about his defensive line. They get into the scheme they run, the players they're using and the adjustments they've made this year.    Injuries have also been a big part of the situation so far and Richey gives an update on one key player at linebacker that won't play this weekend, and may not play the rest of the year based on some comments this week.    Lastly, they get into the secondary and how they've tweaked some schemes and players in order to play differently after a disastrous start to the season.
