Puppy Bowl and the growth of online cute

(Continued)

NEW YORK —

But if you go by Schachner's officiating, it's clear which puppies may take the prize for cuteness. He calls a penalty for "excessive cuteness," on three snuggling morkies (Maltese-Yorkie mixes) that are the most adorable things to have ever lived. They look like canine descendants of Swiffers.

"That's a 10-yard penalty," rules Schachner. "You know what? Fifteen-yard penalty. It's that cute."

Puppy Bowl IX airs Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m., and repeats for the rest of the day, on Animal Planet.

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
