Lady Falcons second at POI meet


The boys’ track squad from Wayne was absent of any individual conference titles, however they managed to take fourth place with 54 team points. Mt. Ayr took the conference boys’ track title with 148 points.

Both the boys’ and girls’ track teams will be in Mt Ayr again today for the district track meet, which determines the list of athletes who will be competing at the state tournament in Des Moines next week.

There, Wayne will face a lot of the same competition they faced at the POI conference meet. Six of the 12 teams the Wayne track teams faced on May 5 will be at the meet. Bedford, Central Decatur, Mt. Ayr, Lenox, East Union and Nodaway Valley will all be representing the POI conference with Wayne. Also at the district meet will be Interstate 35, Southeast Warren, Southwest Valley, Seymour, Orient-Macksburg and Martsendale-St. Marys.

The meet will begin at 4 p.m. In class 1-A, the top place winner in each event at the district meet will automatically qualify for the state meet. After that, the state will compile all of the district results in the class and select the 12 best times that didn’t already qualify will finish out each event’s field at the state track meet.

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
