Sept. 22: Two days until Pancake Day


Pancake Day Trivia – In 1960, the Pancake Day Queen’s crown was lost. At the last minute, a        replacement tiara had to be acquired. By 1961, a new crown had been constructed. The  original heavily adorned crown was created by Elizabeth Burnham, and the second, which has been used for the past 50 years, was designed by her daughter, Kathy.

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
