August 20th

Keith Cope

Keith A. Cope, 86, of Marion, died Thursday, Aug. 8, 2013, at Jones County Regional Medical Center, Anamosa. Funeral Service was held Aug. 13 at Murdoch Funeral Home and Cremation Center, Marion. Burial was in Friends Cemetery, Whittier.
Survivors include his son, Michael Cope of Springville; daughter, Kelly Parker of California; three grandchildren, Adela Cope of Iowa city, Ariel Cope of North Liberty and Calvin Cope of Cedar Rapids; brother, Curt (Winifred) Cope of Springville; and many other loving family members.

John Baird

John Michael “Mike” Baird was born Sept. 6, 1943, in Fort Worth, Texas to John and Mary Baird. He succumbed to leukemia Thursday, Aug. 8, 2013.
To say Mike lived an adventurous life might be an understatement. He was a military veteran, a small-business owner (Modular Furniture Services of Rock Island, Ill.) and a Harley rider, a passion he shared with his much-lived daughter, Amy.
His raw sense of humor and blatant honesty instantly drew you to him– or pushed you away. You were lucky if you chose the former. Mike will be remembered for his generosity and his unwavering loyalty.

Misconception confession

Food for Thought

A recent television program that included wonderful views of Mt. Rushmore reminded me of a niece who once confessed that, for years, she believed that the carvings on that mountain were a natural phenomenon. We all had a good laugh at the time and recalled some of the equally silly mistaken beliefs we held as children.

Neighbors send SOS on Scales Bend boat storage

Board approves first reading to rezone land

JOHNSON COUNTY– One local developer has proposed a plan for an outdoor boat storage facility close to North Liberty, and the idea has taken on water with disapproving neighbors.
However, in its formal meeting of Aug. 8, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors approved the first reading of a rezoning request by Duane Kunkel of Solon that would allow him to stay on that course.
