From the firehouse to your house

NORTH LIBERTY — Firefighters are known for many things: bravery, strength, heroism, and cooking. Yes, cooking. While volunteer firefighters aren’t cooking meals at the station with the frequency of their career brothers and sisters, they still tend to know their way around the kitchen.

From the heartland to the mountains

NORTH LIBERTY– For Arlene Kaczinski, what started out as boxful of good intentions turned into a truckload of them.
In February, Arlene watched a production of ABC’s “20/20” television program, when Diane Sawyer gave the world an inside look into one of the nation’s poorest regions, deep in the mountains of Appalachia.
“It showed the terrible poverty of these people,” said Arlene. “One month later, I was surfing the web and saw more about it. It mentioned the Homecoming Church in Inez, Ky.”

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.”

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.

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.

He graduated from Riverside-Brookfield High School at Riverside, Ill. in 1943. During World War II he served in the Army Air Corps as an armorer-gunner.
He graduated from Grinnell College in 1949 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He held a master’s degree in history from Indiana University and a master’s degree in library science from the University of Iowa.

New Kum and Go store to offer additional convenience

NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty City Council approved a site plan for a new convenience store located on the northeast corner of Kansas Avenue and Penn Street.
Kum N Go, LC, has proposed a 3,391 sq. ft. building to be built on Lininger Lane, just off Kansas Avenue. The store will have a masonry façade and offer eight gas pumps.
Dave Lemons, real estate development representative for Kum N Go, presented the concept for the new store to the City Council last Tuesday, June 9. Lemons said the city’s growth was the main attraction for the convenience chain to locate in North Liberty.
