Front row lawn chairs?

By Michael Schaffer Managing Editor
The Daily Iowegian

---- — The Daily Iowegian will publish an Editorial Question of the Week on the Opinion page.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about lawn chairs. Yes, lawn chairs. Specifically, the lawn chairs that will be placed along the Centerville Square in anticipation of the Pancake Day parade. Are you fine with them being placed on the Square several days in advance or are they an eyesore and should be taken to the dump?

So, the question of the week is, “So, do you believe people should be able to place lawn chairs as early as they want on the Square in an attempt to get a better view of the parade or are they an eyesore and need to be removed?”

Go to the Daily Iowegian website,, and scroll down the home page to POLL on the right hand side and cast your vote. Or call the Iowegian office at (641) 856-6336 or email the editor at to cast a vote.

Vote on the Question of the Week up until Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 12 p.m. The results will be published in the Thursday, Sept. 26 paper along with a new question.

A. Pancakes received nine votes.

B. People watching received 25 votes.
