Permaculture Society plans to bring neighbors together

We’d like to express our sincerest condolences to Penny and Rick Sharp, for the loss of Allen Sharp this past Thursday, July 18, from a heart attack.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

We had our second meeting of the Exline Permaculture Society on July 10 and had a good turn out. Some of the ideas we discussed were finding a way to stock up some emergency supplies for the Community Center in case of a natural disaster, a seed sharing swap meet (plants too), a possible future greenhouse somewhere in town for people to start plants early, a library shelf, Community potluck dinner, Community gardens, scheduling days to help residents take down derelict small buildings, and salvaging those materials so that residents can reuse them and scheduling some training days ... teaching each other to do things like sewing, home canning, etc. We’ll schedule our next meeting somewhere around Aug. 14 or 15 so be prepared to come and bring your neighbor helping neighbor ideas! Watch this article or I’ll try to post an update at the store on the date.

There may be a limited number of funds available through the city from Rural Development for retired or limited income Exliners to do home repairs. There may be grants or low interest loans available. Contact Mary Ann Hurley for forms and guidelines at (641) 658-2691.

In other news, Mary Ann Hurley will be traveling to Missouri this week to see her grandson. The Royal Neighbors will be having a rummage sale this Friday and Saturday at the Community Center. Ruth Matheny will be traveling to see her grandchildren for a few days and we want to thank John Matheny for his hard work lately on the cemetery sidewalk. Looking good John.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about rental permit fees. The Centerville City Council has conducted two working sessions and a third one is planned in order to get a feel for the public's appetite about raising rental permit fees from charging a landlord $25 every two years to charging a certain amount per rental unit per year. So, the question of the week is, "Are you in favor of Centerville increasing rental permit fees?"

A. I'm in favor.
B. I'm not in favor.
C. I'm not sure.
