Perhaps the highlight of the day was the naming of the Princess, Junior Teen and Teen. Katie Shewry, 9, of Ottumwa, was named Princess. Kaylee Lynn Brown, 11, was named Junior Teen. Gracie Stallman-Perry, 13, was named Miss Mystic Teen. No Miss Mystic for 2014 was chosen because no one entered. The reigning 2013 Miss Mystic, Saharra Conkity, will represent the city for an additional year.

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
C. Not sure
