Recommended reads to start your week

This week’s list focuses on some good reads or updates on bigger news stories from around the state. Here are a few to get you caught up or to highlight some other news:

— For biking fans and those who enjoy seeing communities making an eyesore into something useful: Cedar Rapids’ Mount Trashmore transformation enters final phase.

— For those who wondered what happened to the missing family from Creston: The Associated Press offered the tragic reason a family from Creston hadn’t been heard from on their Mexican vacation, and the Des Moines Register offered heartbreaking stories from the families and affected community. 

— For those wondering about marches (here’s what happened nationally, via CNN), there was a state angle. In Waterloo, residents and activists marched Sunday for a cause: Civil and Human Rights March commemorates Selma march, stresses voting rights.

— And finally, here’s a primary on March Madness, credit to USA Today, for anyone not keeping track of their blown-up brackets: Final Four preview: No. 1 Villanova vs. No. 1 Kansas — keys to victory.
