Red Thunder end season champions

The Centerville fifth grade boys basketball team Red Thunder ended its season with a championship performance at the Clark County Invitational Tournament. The day began with a resounding victory against East Union 56-13. Next, they faced undefeated Clark County and won 32-23.

The boys made crucial free throws in the closing seconds to defeat Indianola 27-25.

In the championship game rematch against Indianola the boys used the age old strategy of “cherry picking,” recording six uncontested layups, and long-range shooting, hitting five three pointers to cruise to a 31-19 victory.

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
