    The 2nd amendment has nothing to do with self defense or hunting. It is in place to allow the people to protect against a government that does not follow the will of the people. In short we are armed against men just like this guy who are trying to take away our constitutional rights.

      This coming from a place where they have no regard for biblical law even though a majority of citizens are Christians.

      They ignore the teachings that for centuries said that God created man and woman. As well, they shame and lambast those who believe in God’s words in order to get their own paradigm of right and wrong. Where there is no consequence of sin.

      Yes, as Catholics we are taught to pray for and pity those with a sickness of mind, that they may find the right path in life, that they atone for their transgressions against not only the laws of God, but of the secular world.

      That they have chosen to shun Iowa is good in a sense. It means that we are doing the right things, that we are sticking to our beliefs. But it also means they will target us even harder in following their Godless ways.

    *Yet another Democrat seeks to destroy the 2nd Amendment and disarm law-abiding citizens, leaving them defenseless against evil people and a tyrannical government. Mandatory “buyback” is confiscation of guns. It is not our President moving us dangerously close to a Civil War. It is some Democrats who have abandoned the rule of law and seek to shred the Constitution to achieve their objectives, having decided their freedom-loving fellow Americans are the enemy.

What have we learned in the last few days? – The New York Times writes first and verifies later. – Republicans are presumed to be “guilty” and must prove their innocence. – Democratic presidential candidates are willing to ruin Justice Kavanaugh’s life for political gain. This is all very sad.

It is eLViS, the old guy who lives in Mason City and thinks he is smarter than the rest of the world because he was a low-level employee at a minor company in Iowa. His position was basically telling workers they didn’t work hard enough and because of that, he thinks he is part of the elite. What he has not figured out is that the upper management looked at him as a hatchet man and someone of low intelligence.

    Before we chalk this up to another failure because of Amazon, I think it is more of a victim to overzealous expansion plans by the company. Big boxes like that are more suitable to larger population areas, not small towns.

    I think that begs the question how many more retail outlets will depart the Mason City market because of inadequate revenues?

    Trump is now a lackey of the Saudi government.
    Trump is also Vladimir Putin’s little bitch and Kim Jong-un’s minion.
    Trump was a yellow coward dodging the Viet Nam war draft with his “bone spurs” and is a traitor to our country.

    You Trump supporters are traitors, so you dumbass sons of bitches should move to Russia, North Korea or Saudia Arabia.

    A “For Seniors Only” program will be held at the Lime Creek Nature Center on Wednesday, September 18 at 10 a.m.
    Wildlife photographer Ty Smedes will give a presentation entitled “Raptors of the Midwest.”
    While most Iowans may recognize our more common raptors, like red-tailed and Cooper’s hawks, along with great-horned and barred owls, there are many other raptors that only occasionally nest in our state, along with many other species that pass through during migration. Learn about the hawks, falcons, eagles, owls, and vultures that live in Iowa or migrate through on their way to nesting or wintering areas. There will be tips for identifying these birds of prey, through many colorful photos.
    The program will be followed by a catered lunch and social time. Cost is $5.00 for nature center members and $7.00 for nonmembers. Please call 423-5309 by September 17 to register.

    Dear mr. President:

    Many rural Iowans supported you for your bed to become president.
    We have stood by while you have been trying to negotiate better trade deals with other countries including China. But it is been to the cost of her own pocket books. Overnight export markets have dried up, commodity prices have fallen to new lows, farm income has sunk accordingly.

    However now the straw that broke the camel’s back your allowance of waivers to be given to 85 additional refineries, to exclude ethanol and biodiesel mandates.

    This policy is putting rural Iowans, many who supported you out of work. It has hurt to Iowa companies to the point where they had to suspend operations. In turn, has taken more markets away from Iowa farmers who no longer can sell their commodities to these ethanol operations.

    Mr. President you had the power to stop these waivers you had the power to help Iowa’s farmers yet you have not.

    If you want our continued support you will reverse these waivers and you will help Iowa’s farmers and companies to get back on a good footing.

      The South mall lot did not flood in 2008. Areas to the West towards the fire station did however receive water. As did what was known as Kum & go.

      The average elevation of the South mall lot however, is approximately 1.5 feet above the loop. A quick look at the County GIS map will tell you that it is not in a floodplain.

      I will question the idea that they’re putting in lower levels to this complex almost asking for water problems to occur. Which by the way they have been jackhammering for 3 weeks now to get through the rock that was underneath that ground.

      Also I noticed did this rock appears to be of a porous nature as recent rains have just about soaked through the surface.
