What to do on NFL Championship Football Sunday

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

Tomorrow, Sunday, is one of my favorite football days of the year, the conference championships.

If you're attending a football party, sticking to your diet becomes a challenge.  There will be pizza, wings, chips, dips, nachos, soda and alcohol.

Don't fight it. 

Hopefully you've behaved on your diet this week and you've kind of planned to have a sin day, which is allowed on the Carb-Check Diet.   I'm a firm believer in the need to indulge once in awhile, to stay sane.  The key is getting right back on the diet horse on Monday after thoroughly enjoying yourself on football Sunday.  So have some pizza, have a couple beers, enjoy yourself, just don't overdo it.

And just for kicks, here's my prediction for the Super Bowl:  Pittsburgh vs. Green Bay

Showdown nears on Planned Parenthood funding in Iowa Legislature

The first step in a major initiative to block government funding to Planned Parenthood is set for Tuesday when an Iowa Senate subcommittee considers a bill establishing a new state family planning services program.

The lines are clearly drawn on both sides.

Majority Republicans and anti-abortion activists are fully behind Senate File 2, which would cut off family planning dollars to Planned Parenthood and any other abortion provider. Minority Democrats and supporters of reproductive rights who oppose the bill are solidly backing Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, which served 26,000 patients at 12 Iowa centers last year.

Matt Ryan's legacy on the line in epic duel with Aaron Rodgers -

When Dan Quinn became the Atlanta Falcons' coach two years ago, he challenged Matt Ryan to get to know all the new faces on the team -- coaches and players -- on a personal level. The goal was for Ryan to learn what motivated each person. So the quarterback made a point of having breakfast with a different person every day. He arranged dinners with assistant coaches and their wives. Last offseason, he organized players-only workouts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The most critical relationship, of course, was to be between Ryan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who arrived with Quinn and who is likely to leave after the Falcons' season ends to become the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. The fruition of the relationship first nurtured in those early shared meals -- and tested when Ryan and the Falcons struggled after a hot start last season -- is on display now, with the league's top scoring offense headed into the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, Shanahan on his way to a top job and Ryan on the cusp of finally joining the exalted company of the other three quarterbacks in the conference title bouts.


Trump begins with action on Obamacare, regulation freeze and confirmations

WASHINGTON — President Trump spent the evening of his first day in office ordering all federal departments and agencies to find ways to ease the economic burden of President Obama's health care plan as Congress works to repeal and replace it.

Vice President Pence swore in Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus ordered government agencies to freeze any regulations that haven't already been published.

"Thank you, it's a great day," Trump said after the signings in the Oval Office, before leaving for a set of inaugural balls.


Inauguration protests: Police injured, more than 200 arrested -

Washington (CNN)Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested Friday after a morning of peaceful protests and coordinated disruptions of Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony gave way to ugly street clashes in downtown Washington.

At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital after run-ins with protesters, DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo told CNN. Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said the officers' injuries were considered minor and not life threatening.
Bursts of chaos erupted on 12th and K streets as black-clad "antifascist" protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police lined up in an eastbound crosswalk. Officers responded by launching smoke and flash-bang devices, which could be heard from blocks away, into the street to disperse the crowds.


Pedestrian detour use extended on Dubuque Street

Pedestrian trafficThe existing pedestrian detour on Dubuque Street south of the Park Road Bridge will continue through the end of February, and possibly into early March.

Pedestrians are currently being rerouted off of Dubuque Street for work on the Iowa City Gateway Project. People will instead need to use the Park Road Bridge and connect with the Hancher Pedestrian Bridge. This detour is especially of note for University of Iowa students living in Mayflower Residence Hall and north of the Park Road Bridge.

Crews are continuing to excavate the southbound lanes of Dubuque Street to install deep sanitary sewer. The work is progressing slower than expected because of rock and an aging gas main. Water main will be installed as soon as the sewer has been placed.  Pedestrians will need to continue to reroute to make room for equipment and work.

The detour is currently expected to remain through February, but could be longer given the extent of the work. The City will provide updates as construction progresses.

The Iowa City Gateway Project is a flood mitigation project that will elevate Dubuque Street while raising and replacing the Park Road Bridge. To receive project updates sign-up for City of Iowa City e-subscriptions and follow the City of Iowa City on Facebook and Twitter using #ICgateway.
