Wiskus called McCann a “model” for all teens in Centerville.

“He’s not just a young teen, he’s a young man with high character and heart and high values and we definitely appreciate him,” Wiskus said. “Centerville needs more young men like Nick McCann.”

Wiskus said the store is a family-run business, as his wife Lieba and their five children are all involved. Wiskus took over the store three years ago.

“It truly is a family business.”

Wiskus said they plan to have a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house sometime next week so their two college-age children can attend.

“Our two daughters, who are in college, we want them to be here for the ribbon cutting ceremony,” Wiskus said. “Because that’s important to us.”

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
