Kevin has been - and still is - a great supporter of this entire ward, district and neighborhood. HeRead More certainly doesn't have the most uncontroversial ward in the City. Thanks for all you do!

#1 in the box office and yet the liberal press doesn't mention this documentary that Barack ObamaRead More does not want you to watch. I wonder why? http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2012/09/01/Box-Office-Spet-1-2012

I am Blessed to consider Loretta a friend. “Most frightening to me is how judgmental we haveRead More become, that we believe we have the right to tell people how to live their lives,” Sieman said. “I am in charge of my life, but I am not in charge of yours.” This quote is a perfect depiction of how she lives her life and encourages others to live theirs!

For those of us (only slightly) younger, active women in the WDM and greater DSM community, we canRead More only hope to grow up to be just like Loretta! She is a gem and any one of us would hit the pinnacle of our existence if awarded a "Loretta" in our future. Thanks for all you do for everyone, Loretta. Well deserved!

Sam Kranovich is one reason the Iowa Senior Olympics are a success. As one who has helped out there,Read More I have seen him assist with the events and behind the scenes. The Iowa Senior Olympics are better for Kranovich's efforts.
