Basic precautions can prevent germ-fest when school begins

(Continued)

If your child comes down with a case of the flu, make sure a caregiver is around at all times. That can mean asking a relative or friend to keep watch for a day while you are at work. You can also investigate whether your workplace has a work-at-home program so you can nurse your children without falling behind or taking your own sick days at work. If no program has been instituted, Dr. Ohl says to check with your human resources department to request one.

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
