Lucas

A specialized University of Iowa program for students with disabilities was just the answer. Born prematurely and later diagnosed with Autism, Lucas Rietveld thrived in the local schools in Pella and is much loved by his classmates, teachers and staff. As a 2013 graduate, he's excited to start a new life chapter and adventure just like the rest of his classmates through a program at University of Iowa called REACH. Shown above Rietveld is shown during graduation from Pella High School walking with Lindsey Pothoven.

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?"
