Heart disease programs to be held Aug. 19

IOWA CITY– The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Johnson County would like to announce that on Wednesday, Aug. 19, at 6:30 p.m. there will be an educational program on heart disease. Our program is titled “Beyond Mental Health: Care for the Heart,” with Dr. Jess Fiedorowicz. Joining Fiedorowicz for this discussion will be Julie Voelker, a combined family practice/psychiatry resident. Heart disease is a leading cause of excess death for those with mental illness. This session will talk about measures that anyone can take to reduce their risk of heart disease.

Girl Scouts recruiting new members at school events

IOWA CITY– While many are gearing up for the new school year in Iowa City and the surrounding area, Girl Scouts also is gearing up for a new membership year and is inviting girls to join the organization.
Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development program for girls ages 5-17. Dues are only $1 a month, providing real value when other programs for girls cost much more.

Kiesel granted Quit Claim deed

NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty City Council agreed to issue a Quit Claim deed to a local businessman last Tuesday, Aug. 11.
Bill Kiesel, owner and operator of MidAmerican Hobbies, sought a deed to a piece of property, less than 0.3 acres, adjacent to his current business property on 240th Street. According to Kiesel, the deed was part of a 2006 land agreement between himself and the city.

Transit survey receives weak response

NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty City Council has reviewed the official report on a transit survey conducted by the City of North Liberty.
City Planner Dean Wheatley told the group last Tuesday, Aug. 11 that both the meager return and the respondents’ answers did not point toward a need for increased public transit in North Liberty at this time.
“Normally, with this kind of free-form survey, you see proponents load up and push for what they want,” Wheatley said. “This survey pretty much represents our current ridership.”

JCHT seeks sponsors for annual fundraiser

JOHNSON COUNTY– Support the Johnson County Heritage Trust (JCHT) by helping to sponsor the annual fundraiser, “Under a Cider Moon…A Celebration of Autumn,” to be held October 24, at 6 p.m. at Dick Schwab’s Celebration Barn, 2501 Sugar Bottom Road, Solon.
JCHT, founded in 1978, is a non-profit conservation land trust made up of local citizens committed to the conservation, restoration, preservation and enjoyment of locally significant natural areas.

A celebration of community

JOHNSON COUNTY– That a mere barn could inspire such awe, amazement and admiration would be hard for some to believe.
Until they see it for themselves.
“I’ve even had a couple people spontaneously weep,” said barn designer Dick Schwab.

Bed and breakfast

While traveling, I like the concept of staying at a bed and breakfast, but I must admit to being a little leery of them at the same time.
I like to decide what and when I eat, so ceding control of a meal is one issue. Sometimes I don’t want a big breakfast, and often I like to have my morning repast as early as 6 a.m. And while one part of me likes being around fine and/or antique furniture, another part fears I’ll flatten a priceless chair by sitting in it or accidentally destroy some irreplaceable knickknack.

An eye on the Hawks

For the next three weeks I’ll take a look at the Iowa Hawkeye football team.
Iowa has a lot of talent back from a 9-4 football team and it will be interesting if they can be as good or better than predicted.
Media day was last Friday and the Hawkeyes look ready to rumble and with a little help from my homeboys, Kelly Neustrom and Terry Intveld, we got some nice quotes and pictures.
This week I’ll look at the defense.
