Letter: Support our troops

Knoxville —  

To the Editor: 

The employees of Caring Hearts & Hands Non Medical Home Health Care would like to update all of the people who responded to our previous letter to the Editor. We asked that anyone who had 2013 calendars, and new ball point pens help us collect these for the Iowa National  Guard soldiers deployed in Afghanistan.  A special thank you to Lane Goad of Pleasantville and Roberta McDonald of Knoxville for their contribution to help us with postage.

After the calendars and pens were put in the boxes we filled in each box with wrapped candy.  These boxes were sent to MSG Paul Flattery, formally of Knoxville. Thanks to all of the people who helped us obtain these things. We sent 425 calendars and 355 new ball point pens.  It was very special when Paul emailed me to tell me how pleased the troops were to get these items.  For three days he said he had fellows and gals coming to him for a new ball point pen, calendar and candy.  He thought it was neat when he saw them trading calendars for something that was a special interest to certain people.

Please don't throw away any calendars the banks, realtors, or insurance people have left, as we will send the final calendars on Feb. 6. Even though January will be over, they will still have 11 months.

Now, we have a request for new koozies to help keep their water bottles and cans cold, word puzzle books and wrapped candy.  Once again please give us a call if you can help.  Sandy Coon 641-891-7072, or me, Kathy Dugger 641-891-8505. If you would also like to help by contributing to the postage it would be greatly appreciated.

Let's show our Iowa National Guard Soldiers how much we appreciate them serving.

    Steve I am writing to you to take exception to your House of Wood Article on the Des Moines Area Community College.

  • Support DMACC Levy 3
    To the Editor:
    I read your hit piece on the upcoming vote to continue the tax levy for DMACC and would like to correct your “facts”. The first point you make is that there isn’t a DMACC campus in Knoxville and there will never be one. There is a DMACC campus in Knoxville. It is an integral part of an existing Knoxville Community School building.

    To the Editor:
    Next Tuesday you have the opportunity to vote yes to continue the two levies that help support Des Moines Area Community College.  These levies are existing levies that total 26.5 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.  It will not raise taxes.
