Driver, Student Injured in Iowa Collision of School Buses

LONG GROVE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a driver and a student were injured in a collision of two school buses in eastern Iowa’s Scott County.

The accident occurred around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, about two miles northwest of Long Grove. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office says a northbound bus halted at a stop sign and then proceeded into the rural intersection, colliding with a westbound bus.

The driver of the northbound bus, 67-year-old Stanley Ray, was taken to Trinity Bettendorf hospital for treatment of injuries believed to be non-life-threatening. One child was treated at the scene.

It’s unclear how many children were on the two buses. The Sheriff’s Office says both were carrying children from the North School Community Schools district. The collision is being investigated.

Pet of the Week: Brightmist

Hi, I’m Brightmist and I’m a 3 and 1/2-month-old black kitten. My siblings and I came to the shelter when we were only 2 weeks old without a mother. The nice shelter staff bottle fed us and kept us warm and happy while we grew up. We are the elf family since we were born in December. We’re named after really cool elves–we even look like elves. Anyway, we have a nice big area to play with each other and have a great time together. We all cuddle up together at naptime to recharge. Now we’re ready to go out into the world and make it a more loving place, so come on out and meet us and take us home. We can work magic on your heart!!!

Josh Turner is back.

After a five-year wait between albums, his sixth studio album, Deep South, debuted this week at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

Josh said, “I’ve lived a lot of life since the release of my last album and I’ve learned a lot during the making of this album. I have grown as a writer and as an artist.”

Turner’s last album, Punching Bag, was released in June 2012. The album hit #1 on the charts but didn’t produce a #1 hit. His last #1 single was “All Over Me” in 2010.
