Rumpelstiltskin has sprinkled fairy dust across north Iowa. To be more exact, Rumpelstiltskin’s clone, aka CES, has promised to turn your garbage into their gold.
But just like in the fairy tale, it’s a secret process. Don’t expect full disclosure about the hows and whys and whats, and certainly not about the what ifs.
Some people like to believe in fairy tales. But most of them are children. Usually adults know that in the real world hard questions need to be asked and honest answers demanded when they are confronted with fairy-like stories. If you have felt the fairy dust fall in your eyes, be thankful. It is your wakeup call. Clean it out, wake up, and hope that the next dust that falls there is not a cancer-causing or asthma-causing one that resulted from burning garbage and lots of tires.
Attend the Mason City zoning board meeting at City Hall Tuesday, December 6 at 4 pm.
There will be decisions made about Rumpelstiltskin’s visit here.
