Will fireworks be banned in the Tulip City?  That’s the issue the Pella City Council will take up this evening at their regularly scheduled meeting.  City Administrator Mike Nardini says there was a ban in place on the use and sale of fireworks prior to legislation passed in the 2017 session, and city code had to be revisited because of the change in state law. Nardini says city staff has recommended approval of the ban to the city council.  The council will consider their options to potentially restrict where fireworks can be sold in the community at a future meeting.

Mahaska County is home to more than 1,500 veterans, and now they have a new friend to help them navigate the Veterans Affairs system.  Curt Grandia was recently appointed as the Mahaska County Director of Veterans Affairs – in addition to helping vets secure their benefits, Grandia will help  coordinate transportation for healthcare when a veteran has no means of travel.  Grandia comes into his new position as a U.S. Navy veteran, having served as a journalist and photojournalist from 1984–1990. An Oskaloosa native, he graduated from Oskaloosa Senior High School in 1979 and went on to get his Bachelor’s from Arizona State University and the University of Iowa in 1983.

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers. Psalm 1:1-3
