June 16th

Arthur Louis Koffron

Arthur Louis Koffron died June 4, 2009. He was born May 25, 1939, in Cedar Rapids, to Marvin and Esther Koffron. He was raised in Cedar Rapids and graduated from Immaculate Conception Catholic School. He attended Iowa State University and the University of Iowa where he studied architecture. He married Joyce Anne Trpkosh on June 25, 1960, at St. Wenceslaus Church, Cedar Rapids.

William “Bill” Kadlec

Burial followed in the Rogers Grove Cemetery, near Ely, with military graveside services by Ely American Legion San Quentin Post 555. Visitation was held from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the chapel.

Allen Christensen

Allen Christensen, 68, of North Liberty, died on June 6, 2009, after a courageous battle with cancer. Per Allen’s wishes, his body was cremated.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 12:30 p.m. on June 21 at Ms. Susan’s in North Liberty. This will be a time for family and friends to share memories, and a luncheon will follow.

Food for Thought

Whenever I think of lawn mowing, an old silly joke pops into my head and I have to “tell it to myself” in order to get rid of it. Sort of the same thing that happens when you get stuck with a song that won’t go away and the only thing to do about it is to sing it from start to finish at the top of your lungs. It seems that Ethyl Barrymore was seen trimming the lawn with her nail scissors.

Walkin'

Buzz’s head is still circled by a cone.
The sore on his paw is reduced in size but not gone, so the old hound still can’t be trusted not to lick it. We got the largest cone available, about six feet in diameter at its broadest point, but that wasn’t big enough. Buzz still managed to get his tongue on the sore, something that only makes it worse. Some people put bumper stickers on their cars bragging about their kid making all state or the honor roll; I think I’ll get one that reads “My dog can out-lick your dog.”

1975, PART II

IOWA CITY– Bob Commings and Lute Olsen were in their second years of coaching football and basketball at Iowa, I was in my second year of being a student football manager for the Hawkeyes and football tickets were $7 (they are $50 now!) for football games.
Dan Gable was in his fourth year as assistant wrestling coach and Iowa women’s basketball was in its second year of existence.
Gerald Ford was president, the Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl and Archie Griffin won his second Heisman.
Cincinnati won the World Series and Golden State won the NBA title.

It’s THE BUGMAN!

NORTH LIBERTY — They all have an alias. Bruce Wayne’s alias: “Batman.” Clark Kent’s alias: “Superman.” Peter Parker’s alias: “Spiderman.” And the alias of North Liberty resident Cody Mason? “The Bugman.”
No, Mason doesn’t have supernatural powers. He doesn’t don a set of tights, a mask, and a cape. He doesn’t battle evil doers in the pages of a comic book, but he does battle insects and pests capable of doing evil in homes and businesses.

Dying fish found in local pond

NORTH LIBERTY–The North Liberty Parks Department received a call on May 26 from a resident regarding a fish kill at Goose Lake. City personnel responded immediately and discovered many fish dead or dying along the shoreline.
Paul Sleeper, fish biologist with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources visited the site within two hours and determined that the fish were infected with a disease called Flavobacterium Columnare, a common bacterial infection found in many home aquariums. The disease is also known as Columnaris, Cotton-Wool, Cotton-Mouth, Flexibacter Columnaris, and Mouth Fungus.

MT. VERNON– Finding the right summer camp for your children is tough, but when you have a special needs child with hemophilia it’s particularly important to find one that takes extra precaution - injuries for this group of kids can lead to bleeding into their joints and muscles.
