Hawk Talk

It’s a good time for Iowa to have a bye week as they can heal up and get ready for a road trip to Penn State and the start of the Big Ten season.
The Hawks have played one-third of their season, but I’m going to hand out midterm grades for the offense, defense and special teams.

Offense
The Hawkeyes go into the bye week averaging 37.8 points per game on offense.
I know they played Tennessee Tech and Louisiana Monroe (ULM) but they scored 41 against Iowa State in overtime and 31 against Pittsburgh.

Home businesses code to be reviewed

JOHNSON COUNTY– In October, the extensions on conditional use permits for Dick Schwab’s Celebration Barn and Mary Ellen Hill’s Gazebo on the Green will end.
The attention garnered by the two rural business ventures in this corner of Johnson County has had people wondering; what’s acceptable practice when carrying out a business in the unincorporated areas of the county?
For most, the answer lies somewhere in the county’s written code. For these two businesses, with their unique services offered in distinctive settings, the code lacks clarity.
