Another Lawsuit Over Judicial Nominating Process, The Globe's Joanne Fox Retires

10119 504

The national weather issued a freeze warning for tonight through tomorrow morning for parts of northeast Nebraska as temperatures are expected to dip into the 20s.

The state is asking a Polk County judge to dismiss a second lawsuit challenging recent changes to the process for selecting Iowa Supreme Court justices and appeals court judges.

Attorney Bob Rush argues this challenge is different from the first. His client Thomas Duff applied to be an appeals court judge, but the nominating commission in its new form didn’t choose Duff as a finalist.

Assistant Attorney General David Rantsch says that doesn’t prove Duff is adversely affected by the law.

Today, the Diocese of Sioux City will honor the editor of the Catholic Globe Newspaper.

Joanne Fox is retiring after a long career in journalism and communications.

It’s draw-dropping all of the changes over the last 45 years.

Fox started as a reporter at the Globe back in 1974 and spent almost 20 years there before working for the Sioux City Journal and even taught at Western Iowa Tech Community College for 16 years before returning to the Globe as editor six-years ago.

Bishop Walker Nickless, Diocese of Sioux City

Bishop Nickless says Fox will be missed at the paper.

She has been a great gift to the Diocese of Sioux City because of her love of the church because of her inspiration and her imagination. 

An open house is planned for Fox this afternoon at the Central Catholic Offices in Sioux City from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

During “All Things Considered” at 5:44 we’ll hear from Joanne Fox about all of the changes in journalism over the years.
