Celebrate EMS Week


To the editor,


A thank you from Discovery House

I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every person who contributed to the Good Neighbor Fund. We were able to use this very generous donation to gather the items needed to expand our abilities to serve individuals. Originally, Discovery House was able to house up to 10 individuals in the main house and Daniel House was intended to be a transitional home for up to up to seven people.

Lakes Area Hockey appreciates community support

The Lakes Area Hockey Association would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Good Neighbor Fund and those people in the community that support it for their donation. LAHA is committed to providing ice-related recreational and competitive activities for the community to enjoy through participation and spectating. This would not be possible without contributions such as this one.

Letter to the Editor,


The Conservation Foundation of Dickinson County would like to thank the Good Neighbor Fund for their grant to support programs and services relating to conservation in Dickinson County. A hearty thank you to all that donated to the Good Neighbor Fund. Your contributions will help fund conservation programs at the Dickinson County Nature Center.

Thank you again,

Michael McFarlin

Broad strokes miss important details

By Seth Boyes - News Editor


Our community — as well as those beyond it, I suppose — were offered a query the other week, which one of our state legislators feels is capable of clearly separating education from indoctrination in Iowa schools.
