Growing season: North Liberty’s Farmer’s Market more successful than first year

NORTH LIBERTY– Summer may officially end this month, but expect six more weeks of a great summertime tradition here in North Liberty.
The North Liberty Farmer’s Market, held each Sunday from 1-4 p.m. at the North Liberty Community Center parking lot, will wrap up its second season Oct. 25. Co-organizer Matt Meseck of the North Liberty Recreation Department has been pleased with the market’s growth over last year.

CCA school board installs new members

OXFORD — The Sept. 8 school board election, combined with resignations, has changed the look of the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) School Board.
Board president Dan Schaapveld (at-large director) decided not to seek re-election, while Kathy Zimmerman (director district No. 2) was defeated at the polls. Matthew Croco (director district No. 4) resigned in July after moving out of the district, leaving an open seat.
In their places came Eileen Schmidt, who beat Zimmerman; Aimee Pitlick (at-large); and write-in candidate Mick Kahler, who pursued Croco’s vacancy.

Walkin'

Pearl, our two-and-a-half-year-old Labradoodle, returned to her old tricks recently.
We adopted Pearl through a local dog rescue operation. By six months, she didn’t sell so she either had to get out or be put down. She probably never stepped a paw outside of a cage. Kept on a diet that makes stools soft, her six square feet of space was cleaned by a disinterested worker with a hose.
It was all she knew.
Then one day she was suddenly yanked into another cage, which was scary enough, but it did something that terrified her even more: it shook as it was in transport to us, her new friends.

Food for Thought

One of my sisters and I were reminiscing over some old photos of family picnics and other excursions. (We never actually had family vacations as such except for one memorable occasion when we visited Melen, Wis., where both our parents attended high school. If there were photos taken then, they reside in someone else's picture album, for I don't seem to have any.)

Sleepless in North Liberty

I didn’t want to go to sleep last Saturday night.
After Iowa’s stunning 21-10 comeback victory over fifth-ranked Penn State, I didn’t want that good feeling to end.
109,000 fans all dressed for the whiteout (minus about 3,000 wearing black and gold), pouring rain all day and all during the game, the Nittany Lions jumping out to a 10-0 lead and everybody, that is everyone outside the state of Iowa picking Penn State to avenge the 24-23 loss from last year.

Guest Opinion from the Iowa State Senate

As your state senator, I’m paying close attention to how the deepening national recession is affecting Iowa families, businesses, communities and the state budget.
When the current state budget was approved, I pushed for cuts in spending compared to the previous year. Those cuts mean reduced state spending in almost every area of the budget, including travel and compensation for legislators.
The question now is whether additional cuts will be needed to balance this year’s budget.
