Old spool cabinet

John Holeman refinished this spool cabinet, which he purchased at a farm sale near Numa in 1989. This type of cabinet would have held spools of thread and other sewing materials. The cabinet now sits in his home. “It was a challenge, and I got a lot of satisfaction out of seeing how it came out,” Holeman said.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
