Antique furniture turns into lifelong hobby

John Holeman demonstrates how to take finish off an old piece of wood in the workshop in his garage. He is standing in front of a nativity piece he refinished that morning for the Methodist Church and a trunk that he recently refinished. In the top of the trunk, which he bought at a garage sale, is a tray he created for it.

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
