Prep work on local landmark underway

SUTLIFF– A diesel crane lifted a steel column into the air and set it upright in the murky waters of the Cedar River. With a pile driver attached, and a man in full-body harness and with fall protection in place hanging on the side; the crane operator rhythmically pounded the column into the river bed.

Walkin'

Last weekend a few friends, Sabra and I rode our bicycles on the Iowa Heritage Trail, which runs between Dyersville and Dubuque,.
It was a beautiful ride.
The trail is built atop the old rail bed put down in 1885 to connect Chicago to St. Paul, Minn., by train. Running between Dyersville and Dubuque, the 26-mile passage threads through a 450-foot deep valley and past old mining and mill towns closely following the Little Maquoketa River. It passes through a landscape of deep rugged woodlands, sheer limestone bluffs, and old lead mines.

Food For Thought

If there’s one thing I missed out on, it was a chance to go homesteading in Alaska in 1956. That was the year I got married, and my new husband thought that it would be a great adventure. The idea appealed to me in one way– the long summer days and gardens that soaked up sunshine 21 hours a day. Cabbages so big that one would fill a wheelbarrow. Carrots so big you couldn’t fit one into a quart jar.
