Here’s the beef

IOWA CITY– When Johnson County Supervisor Pat Harney sat in on a local forum about hunger, he learned about food shortages at local food banks and came up with an idea to beef up support to those in need.
Along with his wife Jean, Harney rounded up the assistance of 20 donors from all over the county to help in a significant way. Harney and company bought a two-year-old heifer raised by Clear Creek Amana graduate Stephanie Fisher. Fisher’s cow was a reserve champion at the county fair; weighing in at 1,045 pounds. It sold for $1,200.

Food For Thought

Several years ago I wrote about four words for happiness. Those words were Love, Learn, Share and Play, and I consider them all to be necessary in order to be happy. We have to make time for each in our busy lives, and we never reach a point where we are ‘done’ with any of them. For a long time, I thought that the element of creativity was inherent in most of those four concepts. It seems I may have been mistaken. Since that time I’ve observed a number of cases where people who include those four things in their lives still seem to feel something is missing.

Cycling back to Alton, we then drove to our next destination, St. Genevieve, Mo.
As its website proclaims, “This is a charming, laid-back town where bicycles don’t need locks and people stroll in and out of inviting little shops filled with antiques, crafts and wine.” It’s also the oldest settlement by Europeans in Missouri and many historical sites have been preserved.
