The city of Decorah needs to do a better job cracking down on drugs....they also need to build an out look like the one at Phelps park up at Palisades.

The architectural design of the building the city has so much to offer and I plan on taking my wife there someday

We appreciate winter mornings even more when they look like this.

A spectacular morning view from the Decorah Eagles' nest.

Another look at the trails around Decorah! We need some more snow for more stunning pics like these on Phelps Trail!

November 17 - We are thankful for Officer Chris Wuebker and the Decorah Police Dept. Officer Wuebker is a recipient of the 2017 Enrique S. Camarena Award, named after the DEA agent who was murdered in Mexico in 1985 while working undercover to fight the drug cartels. The award is presented each year to local law enforcement officers who best exemplify the qualities and principles for which Agent Camarena gave his life -- specifically, making their communities a safer place to... live through drug prevention and enforcement efforts.

Officer Wuebker of the Decorah Police Department is one of two Iowa law enforcement officers to be honored for their commitment to reducing drug abuse.

Wuebker's award was presented by the US Attorney's offices and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Thank you to Officer Wuebker and the entire Decorah Police Dept.

Congrats to the Decorah Fire Dept.

The KCRG-TV report is at…/Drone-helps-find-six-people-stranded-…

Drones are becoming a vital tool for first responders across Eastern Iowa. Authorities used one to find six people stranded along the Yellow River near Effigy Mounds last night. That’s in Allamakee County.
