OMG did he just take my photo is probably what Makenzie Jewett, 18, of Centerville, a freshman studying nursing, is thinking as she carries a few plates of food Wednesday morning at Indian Hills Community College. Jewett, along with many others, converged on the IHCC Centerville campus Barn for the annual International Tasting Day. Authentically prepared food from around the world was offered for tasting.

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
