Winter Safety in Subzero Weather

By Valerie Close · January 29th, 2019
There are some things that shouldn't have to be said. But every year, in the midst of snowstorms, we have accidents, unnecessarily. It's Iowa folks. Take your time, and for goodness sake, don't pass someone if you can't see what's coming or where you're going. The weather has been vicious this past week and a half.

Both the Vinton and Shellsburg Unitypoint Clinic office hours for Wednesday 1/30/19 will be 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.. Please call ahead to make sure we are still open before attempting a trip to the office.

VMEU to Decide Future of Internet Service: To Proceed or Not

By Valerie Close · January 28th, 2019
One of my first introductions to city government was attending meetings of the VMEU Board. For those not familiar with what that stands for, it's the Vinton Municipal Electric Utility Board or the people who keep the lights on in Vinton and send you a bill every month. This is also the group who will be deciding whether or not Vinton has access to reliable, affordable, high-speed broadband internet.

It's not news, but patriotism has its own address in Palo

By Valerie Close · January 26th, 2019
Now I'd say I'm probably a pretty patriotic gal. When I had all 6 of our kids at home and we loaded up the car for the 4th of July parade, until they were old enough to say, "Umm, no mom, I'm not wearing that..." they'd be donned in their red, white and blue outfits. When we saw the flag coming down the street they were all taught to stand and salute the flag.

Newsflash, it snowed, AND it's going to snow more

By Valerie Close · January 23rd, 2019
I hesitate to write an article about the weather, I mean come on, that's like watching the weather reports while the reporter is standing out in a hurricane reporting that there are winds that will knock you off of your feet. It's nasty out there folks. Now that I've said that, I'll tell you that if you live in the country, you will have some very tense maneuvering on your way to civilization.
