Cate Grueneich knows a little something about the power part of Empowered Living Company. Grueneich, 23, can deadlift 200 pounds which is much more than she weighs. But Grueneich said, the workouts at Empowered Living aren't about what she can do but what each individual can do and strive to do. Grueneich opened the business Sept. 1 at 405 Atlantic Ave. in Morris. She offers various strength classes including Tabata and two instructors offer yoga classes in the converted garages and storage units. Tabat involves lifting weights and other skills in a fitness routine.
To the editor We have just experienced an election when the popular vote went to Clinton while the Electoral College votes went to Trump. This outcome has happened four times before and should not be regarded as a first-time event in our nation's history. The outcry is that the election is somehow rigged.

Ken Lindor was sitting in a chair listening to music when the singing stopped. Lindor didn't know it then but he was the reason the music stopped that afternoon at West Wind Village nursing home in Morris. Lindor is the latest recipient of the Pay It Forward Stevens County award. Representatives gave him the award Dec. 13. "It was quite a surprise," Lindor said of the award. Lindor was nominated for the award by Neil Thielke. Thielke said the nomination was because of Lindor's many contributions in Morris and other communities.
The area's first big round of snow on Nov. 18 resulted in 34 citations for failure to clear sidewalks of snow, Morris City Manager Blaine Hill said. The city has 1,500 to 1,600 properties with sidewalks so 34 citations involves a small percentage of all sidewalks, Hill told the Morris City Council on Dec. 13. Property owners have 48 hours to remove the snow from sidewalks when it snows in Morris. Several inches of snow were expected to fall in Morris from Friday through today in a winter storm.
