Mike O'Connor was surprised as he was presented with an award called "The Voice" commemorating 50 years of broadcasting, 32 of those years being spent as the voice of the Centerville Big Reds and Redettes on KCOG. As Russ Ocker, speaking on behalf of the Centerville School District while presenting O'Connor with the plaque, said, "No one in this community is more respected, more revered and more legendary than Mr. Mike O'Connor."

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
