Food For Thought

I don’t seem to fit the sociological assumption that women are society’s nurturers (at least not of late). I’ve spent nearly all of my adult life nurturing. I’m tired of nurturing. My nurturing batteries have run down and can’t be recharged. Nurturing is a cozy and high-sounding word but I wonder how many people understand what it entails.

not so much

At last Wednesday’s Solon City Council meeting, council member Ron Herdliska asked if the burning of yard waste had been a problem.
“Yes,” answered fellow member Brad Kunkel.
“No,” responded residents Sue Ballantyne and Karen Jensen from the audience.
And that just about covers it.
Kunkel has been pushing to ban the burning of yard and garden waste, hoping instead to expand the city’s curbside leaf collection to include tomato vines and dead annuals.

Singing an American song for CCA schools

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN— Woody Guthrie lives.
The Iowa Theatre Artists Company (ITAC) brought the story and music of Guthrie to their stage in Amana in 2011, and it quickly became their most popular production with frequent sell-outs. The show returns for the 2012 season, including a benefit performance at the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) High School in Tiffin. The show, scheduled for Saturday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. is a benefit performance for the CCA Drama Department and will take place in the Performing Arts Center.
