Fern Broshar, 93, of Centerville and the mother of retired Col. Robert D. Broshar has been very busy the last few months. She crocheted more than 100 beanie caps for the soldiers to wear under their helmets and on Jan. 26 presented one to each of the men who deployed with the 833rd Engineer Company to Afghanistan. The 833rd Engineer Company from Ottumwa deployed to Afghanistan for one year on Jan 28. Pictured is Fern Broshar and Capt. Kiel Archer, commander of the 833rd Engineer Company, standing in front of the unit outfitted with their skull caps.

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
