The Rock Island comes to Numa


Some of the Churches discontinued holding services and only the Christian Church on the east side of Main St. remains. The Post Office is gone. There is still a gas station on the south end of town. The once prosperous coal mining community now has a population listed at 151. Numa still maintains a City Park where the square had been located and still has its share of community pride. A monument has been erected in the park to declare the history of the town.

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
