For the second year in a row Oskaloosa's high school robotics team is heading to worlds in St. Louis. In late March the Sock Monkeys 4443 competed at the robotics super regional in Des Moines and punched their ticket to the championship.
Oskaloosa's American Legion Auxiliary needs your help. Its members want to establish a Freedom Rock in Mahaska County and they are gearing up. The future tourist site needs donations for landscaping, equipment, and other materials to make it easily accessible to the public.
Oskaloosa schools might receive less funding than they did last year. The Iowa Legislature is currently negotiating a percentage that both the senate and the house of representatives can agree on. But nothing has been decided.
Summer is a few months away, but volunteers for Oskaloosa's Summer Lunch Program are already organizing. More than 140 volunteers served more than 2,400 free meals to kids and teens in the program's initial year.
