June is National Dairy Month -- and this weekend, the Iowa City Farmers Market will pay tribute to dairy farmers with its first annual "Dairy Day." The event is scheduled Saturday, June 22 from 9 a.m. to noon at Chauncey Swan Park, across the street from City Hall on Washington Street.
Stop by for free cheese sticks and bring the kids for a chance to "milk" a mechanical cow and make homemade ice cream. If you grew up in the country, take a few minutes to share some memories with the Iowa Historical Society on what life on the farm was like.
The Saturday Farmers Market, held in Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp and on Washington Street, is scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
For more information, contact Tammy Neumann at the City of Iowa City Parks Office at 319/356-5210 or e-mail email@example.com.
Coralville, Iowa- After announcing his candidacy to represent Iowa in the United States Senate in front of a packed house in Sioux City, Iowa, Dr. Sam Clovis made plans to head east.
The Morningside College professor said, “I think it’s no secret that if you want to win a statewide seat as heralded as a U.S. Senate seat you’re going to have to travel to all 99 counties in the state. When that schedule was made, I knew that Johnson County was going to be on my list early and often.”
The visit will take place at the Coralville Library, 1401 5th Street, Jean Schwab Auditorium, on June 26 from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Sam Clovis--businessman, professor, fighter pilot and former talk show host----expects to meet and greet voters who may choose to cast a ballot for him in the June 3, 2014, Republican primary. The Republican field continues to grow, and Dr. Clovis sees this as an opportunity to gain voters before the field fully forms.
“My aim is to get in front of folks, shake their hands and let them know what I am all about and what our campaign is all about. I am going to carry a message that preaches fiscal solvency, upholding the Law of the Land and providing security for our kids and our grandkids,” Clovis said.
Dr. Clovis touts a resume headlined by twenty-five years of military service in the United States Air Force, holding a political science degree as well as an MBA and a doctorate of public administration degree. He has also achieved tenured professor status in both business and economics at Morningside College in Sioux City. Additionally, he hosted a conservative talk radio show daily on KSCJ-AM in Sioux City prior to running for the United States Senate.
