Hunter injured in Monroe County

BLAKESBURG — A man was injured after being shot while hunting deer Sunday in Monroe County near Blakesburg.

Around noon, Clint Morgan, 48, of Saucier, Miss., was hit in the elbow by a shotgun slug, according to release from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The statement says someone in Morgan’s seven-member hunting party fired at a deer. Morgan was taken to Monroe County Hospital in Albia, then transported by ambulance to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.

No word was issued on his condition Sunday evening by press time.

The incident occurred southwest of Blakesburg. Authorities say diminished view due to fog conditions experienced around the state on Sunday was not considered to be a factor in this incident.

The incident remains under investigation by the DNR.

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
