Buccaneers vs. Bears - Game Recap

CHICAGO -- Mitchell Trubisky threw a career-high six touchdown passes -- one shy of the NFL record -- and the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears pounded the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-10 on Sunday.

The Bears (3-1) won their third straight with Trubisky delivering the sort of breakout performance general manager Ryan Pace envisioned when he traded up a spot to draft the prized quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick last year.

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA –The City of Cedar Rapids will host a city-wide walk on October 3 in support of the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative’s annual walk. Walkers across all 99 Iowa counties will come together as a reminder to build healthy habits into everyday routines.

“I encourage all residents to participate in this walk, which is designed to encourage us all to move more and make community connections,” said City Manager Jeff Pomeranz, “Cedar Rapids has placed a priority on becoming a healthier community. This year we received a Healthiest State Initiative Community Award for advancing efforts to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of residents in Cedar Rapids. This walk is a great way to continue our efforts and encourage community participation.”

The walk will begin in front of City Hall on 1st Street SE at noon and meet approximately 20 minutes later at Greene Square. After a few words from Governor Reynolds and City Manager Jeff Pomeranz, walkers are free to enjoy tailgate-style festivities. Lunch will be available free of charge. Walkers can socialize and enjoy music and games before returning to work at their convenience.

The annual walk is a reminder that walking is an easy way to increase physical activity while providing an opportunity to connect with friends and co-workers at the same time.

Cedar Rapids Police Department to host Coffee with a Cop on Wednesday, October 3rd at the Johnson Avenue Hy-Vee

Program offers opportunity to meet local officers, discuss community issues 

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – On Wednesday, October 3rd, officers from the Cedar Rapids Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

All community members are invited to attend. The event will run from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. on October 3rd at Hy-Vee, 1843 Johnson Avenue NW.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Cedar Rapids neighborhoods.

The majority of contacts that law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the country, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities that they serve.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
