Halfway point in U.S. Cellular’s Calling All Communities campaign

CHICAGO — The halfway point has been reached for voting in U.S. Cellular’s Calling All Communities campaign, and the carrier has announced the list of the top 100 schools receiving votes. Almost three weeks remain to rally community support and add to the 33,579 votes that have been cast so far to win a share of $1 million in the company’s fourth annual campaign to support education. With more than 16,000 votes cast in the last week, there is plenty of time to rally votes to make a difference for your school.

The top 18 schools that receive the most votes will win a share of $1 million to spend any way they see fit. The school that garners the most votes will receive $150,000, and the next 17 schools will each receive $50,000. The voting period ends Oct. 21.

 Of the 15 Iowa schools in the top 100 as of Oct. 2 is Wayne Community Junior-Senior High School in Corydon at 74th.

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
