Celebrating and serving up Tex-Mex Friday night

Adelitas grand opening Oct. 27

NORTH LIBERTY– Walk into Adelitas, and you won’t see too many sombreros, or other symbols of traditional Mexican culture for that matter.
“I tried to make it look a little bit more like a sports bar, something you would actually see in Mexico,” said Jose Antonio Hernandez, the young general manager and co-owner of Adelitas.
An avid sports fan, Hernandez wanted to go for the feel of a modern Mexican sports bar, as opposed to what most Mexican restaurants aim for. “It’s a little bit different. It’s not something that you would see in every place.”

Engaging kids

NLFD covers fire, bike and traffic safety at Garner Elementary

NORTH LIBERTY– It’s October, and that means it’s time for National Fire Prevention Week.
On the morning of Friday, Oct. 13, Captain Chris Kochanny and Lieutenant Mike Johnson of the North Liberty Fire Department (NLFD) took turns presenting information to the students of Garner Elementary, assisted by a slideshow, videos and various props.

965 Phase 2 construction dragged out by delays

Contractor and city engineer seek resolution over liquidated damages

NORTH LIBERTY– Road construction can be cumbersome for travelers and city officials alike. Add to that hundreds of thousands of dollars in liquidated damages and you’ve got, to put it one way, a major bump in the road.
In a prolonged struggle, the City of North Liberty is trying to find a resolution with the contractor of the virtually completed Highway 965 Phase 2 project, after conflict resulted from delays dating back to 2014.

Meet the Leader’s newest reporter

NORTH LIBERTY– Much like the city of its namesake, the North Liberty Leader is undergoing changes. In September, Cale Stelken of Iowa City joined the team as a reporter and photographer. Stelken replaces Shianne Fisher, who has since moved to the Des Moines area.
