Newton, Iowa

Heartsill introduces term limit legislation By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor He’s only in his first term in the Iowa House of Representatives, but if Rep. Greg Heartsill (R-Columbia) has his way, an amendment to the Iowa Constitution will limit how long he can remain in office. Heartsill, who represents Iowa House District 28, which includes the south-

east corner of Jasper County, introduced House Joint Resolution 2002 on Monday. The constitutional amendment would limit the number of terms served in the Iowa General Assembly and the Office of Governor. “Public service is a trust that needs to be restored,” he said. “By imposing term limits on elected officials, I believe it is a necessary step for the citizens of Iowa to regain confidence in the political system.”

HJR 2002, if passed, would need to be approved by Iowa voters in two consecutive general elections before it could go into effect. The earliest that could happen is July 1, 2017. The amendment would limit representatives, senators, governors and lieutenant governors to 12 years. For members of the Iowa House of Representatives, that is six terms, for members of the Senate, Governor and Lt. Governor, that is three terms.

Zach Johnson/Daily News REG’s executive team, along with Rep. Dan Kelley, help break ground for the facility’s planned upgrade. The new upgrade will create 75 full-time construction jobs and allow REG to process more source materials to make an even purer form of its biodiesel product. Kelley called the $13.2 million upgrade “a significant investment in Newton.”

Tuesday’s groundbreaking ceremony at the REG biodiesel plant in Newton showcased the company’s continued belief in its Newton facility and that the city’s new industrial base is still a growing commodity. “As many of you may remember, a little more than six years ago, Maytag closed its doors in Newton,” Rep. Dan Kelley said in a speech during the event. “It was a devastating blow made worse by the overall economic downturn within our state and the entire country.” “We could have simply given up. Turned off our lights, shut our doors and moved away,” he continued. “But Newton refused to give up. To be sure, it’s been tough, but from that struggle we have seen new businesses develop … they are great examples of the success that can flow form hard work, commitment and perseverance — a lot of perseverance.” REG’s groundbreaking was to celebrate its upcoming $13.2 million upgrade to its Newton facility. REG said the expansion was going to create 75 full-time construction jobs and allow the Newton plant to produce a higher quality biodiesel product and enable it to distill even more source materials. “This investment shows our continuing confidence in biodiesel for the long-term,” REG President and CEO Dan Oh said. “It furthers our efforts to enhance our lower-cost, multi-feedstock biodiesel business by con-

tinuing to broaden our customer base and provide more options for our customers to choose from.” A number of staff members and executives from REG were present as well as some of its business partners, customers and Newton community leaders. U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack was unable to attend, but sent district representative Amelia Schoeneman and a letter on his behalf. “Investments like these at REG are exactly what is needed right now,” Loebsack wrote. “There is no doubt that concerns about the (Renewable Fuel Standard) and the future of biofuels is causing uncertain-

ty in the industry. This upgrade at REG says loud and clear that the industry is continuing to move forward, that the market for biodiesel will continue to exist and grow and you all are going to continue making even better fuel options for consumers.” REG’s Newton plant, located at 3426 E. 28th St. N., has 27 employees and is capable of producing up to 30 million gallons of biodiesel annually. Kelley also commended the company for its role in producing a green energy and for its continued support of Newton and Jasper County. “This ribbon cutting represents a significant investment in Newton — over $13 million dollars,” Kelley said. “That’s money that comes back into the local economy in construction and engineering jobs. It also increases the value of this plant by making even better biodiesel.” That’s not only good for the folks at REG, that’s good for the community that supplies this plant a quality feedstock and a talented labor force,” he continued.

Ask and you shall receive was the message at Tuesday’s Jasper County Board of Supervisors meeting. The Red Rock Area Community Action Program received permission from the board to continue using office space in the county annex building located at 115 N. Second Ave. E. RRACAP’s Jasper County Coordinator Amy Hansen presented on behalf of the organization to the board. RRACAP had previously sent a letter to the board expressing its desire to stay in its current location and thanked the board for its support. “The space granted to us by the county is conveniently located, and we appreciate the fact that we don’t have to pay rent. The addition of (a) door and window to our office has allowed us to create a waiting room and provide for increased confidentiality for our clients. We are grateful for the time and financing allotted for this project.” RRACAP provided assistance to 2,393 individuals and 1,023 households in Jasper County in 2013. County Engineer Russ Stutt also received board approval for a resolution to set a public presentation for the Secondary Roads Department’s five-year plan. The presentation will be at 1 p.m. Feb. 25 in Room 203 of Jasper County Courthouse. The five-year plan itself details potential road and bridge construction and repaving projects in the county.

PCM voters approve new revenue purpose statement By Daily News Staff Voters in the Prairie City-Monroe school district braved cold weather and snow Tuesday to head to the polls. On the special election ballot was a new revenue purpose statement for the district’s one-cent special-option sales tax revenue. The measure, which had failed to get the necessary simple majority vote at a July 2013 special election, passed with overwhelming support. Of the 305 votes cast, 249 — 81.64 percent — voted “Yes” and 56 voted “No.” The official results will be canvassed Tuesday, Feb. 11, by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors.


Zach Johnson/Daily News Newton received about 4 inches of snow in the most recent winter storm, which began late Tuesday morning and lasted through the night. More snow is expected today and Saturday.

Club Notes Kellogg Garden Club The Kellogg Garden Club installed 2014 officers at the recent meeting. Carolyn Myers and Laura Hanawalt will share the presidency. Joann Haynes will serve as vice-president; Pat Patty as secretary; and Eunice McCarthy as treasurer.  Freda DeGreef was recognized for her service as vice-president in 2013.   The club will donate to Iowa scholarship funds for horticulture and landscape design students. Louise Meakins presented a program about trees being cut at an alarming rate in Iowa. Trees are beneficial in many ways. They provide cooling shade, remove carbon dioxide, help hold soil in place and help improve water quality. In 2012, 32,000 football fields of trees were cut. The many benefits of those trees are lost. She proposed some actions the club could take to call attention to the situation. Fred Chabot will present a program on grafting at the February meeting. The group will  also celebrate Valentine’s Day at that time.

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Talk of the Town The Newton Daily News recently hit the streets and asked local citizens the following question:

What changes or upgrades would you like to see to the downtown Newton area?

Jerney Shores

Ty’s Take

Enjoying new experiences in New York City NEW YORK — Live from New York ... It’s Ty! I’m writing this week’s Take on my sister’s couch in New York City, because how many other chances will I get to write a dateline in New York City? But all jokes aside, I’ve had a By Ty Rushing wonderful few days catching up Daily News Staff Writer with my little sister and doing my best “Dora the Explorer” impersonation of New York. This place is so massive, I never really ventured away from Manhattan because I was so busy discovering new things here every day. This was my first trip to New York and it is an absolutely amazing place. I mean, I could never live here; I’m way too cheap for that. Seriously, $14.50 for a movie ticket! As good as “Lone Survivor” was, I still almost had a heart attack when I purchased that ticket. I will stick to the Capitol II and watching Joy the Pig strut around in her office, thank you very much. Besides paying an arm and a leg for just about everything, I had a great time shopping and dining and partaking in all of the wonderful Super Bowl festivities taking place up here. I saw “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway, ate free pizza at an NYU Medical School minority fellowship meet and greet and discovered a store called “Bag Man,” which is like the New York version of Dollar Tree. I also got to spend some much needed quality time with my little sister. I’m two years older than Brittany, and we didn’t meet until we were teenagers, so we didn’t really get a chance to grow up together. We have still managed to develop a pretty tight

bond, and when she went off to Spelman College in Atlanta, I was one of her most frequent couch crashers. It’s so cool to see how my little sister is doing up here, getting to meet

her friends and seeing where she works and studies at. I always joke that I’m the starving artist of the family, and Britt’s going to be the rich one (she graduated magna cum laude from

Spelman with her bachelor’s in chemistry). An added bonus to her success: how many people can say their little sister is a scientist? This in and of itself is rare, but the fact that she happens to be a black female scientist makes it all the more incredible. I’m so proud of this girl. Another aspect of this visit was just walking around the city and basking in the sheer glory of skyscraper after skyscraper and seeing the gothic, art deco and modern style buildings intermingling to form the world famous tapestry that makes up the New York skyline. I’m a closet architecture nerd. I was too cheap to pay $27 and wait in line to go to the top of the Empire State Building, but I did manage to make one pilgrimage every American should make, visiting the 9/11 Memorial. I’ve mentioned before that I was a freshman in high school when the attacks happened and it’s something that is forever burned into my memory. Being able to walk around a place where such tragedy happened and seeing the memorials and tributes all along the area was a touching sentiment and the still under construction Freedom Tower/One World Trade Center is massive and beautiful. The things happening on that site are a true showcase of America’s ability to overcome adversity and to persevere in even the harshest of circumstances. With all of that being said, I had a nice couple of days off and I’m looking forward to another stellar week of covering the ins and outs of Newton and surrounding areas. I also should probably hit the gym. I’m pretty sure my attempt to eat as many New York delicacies as possible has killed all my 2014 weight loss momentum. But who I am to pass up authentic slices of New York pizza for 99 cents each?

Analysts say health care law means fewer on job WASHINGTON (AP) — Several million American workers will cut back their hours on the job or leave the nation’s workforce entirely because of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, congressional analysts said Tuesday, adding fresh fuel to the political fight over “Obamacare.” The workforce changes would mean nationwide losses equal to 2.3 million full-time jobs by 2021, in large part because people would opt to keep their income low to stay eligible for federal health care subsidies or Medicaid, the Congressional Budget Office said. It had estimated previously that the law would lead to 800,000 fewer jobs by that year. Republican lawmakers seized on the report as major new evidence of what they consider the failures of Obama’s overhaul, the huge change in U.S. health coverage that they’re trying to overturn and planning to use as a main argument against Democrats in November’s midterm elections. It’s the latest indication that “the president’s health care law is destroy-

ing full-time jobs,” said Republican Rep. John Kline of Minnesota, chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee. “This fatally flawed health care scheme is wreaking havoc on working families nationwide,” he said. But the White House said the possible reduction would be due to voluntary steps by workers rather than businesses cutting jobs — people having the freedom to retire early or spend more time as stay-at-home parents because they no longer had to depend only on their employers for health insurance. The law means people “will be empowered to make choices about their own lives and livelihoods,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf said the top reasons people would reduce work would be to qualify for subsidized coverage and an expanded Medicaid program but that lower wages — because of penalties on employers who don’t provide coverage and looming taxes on generous health

care plans — would also be a factor. The agency also reduced its estimate of the number of uninsured people who will get coverage through the health care law. The budget experts now say 1 million more people will be uninsured this year than had been expected, partly because of the website problems that prevented people from signing up last fall. However, it wasn’t all bad news for the Obama administration. The CBO’s wide-ranging report predicted that the federal budget deficit will fall to $514 billion this year, down from last year’s $680 billion and the lowest by far since Obama took office five years ago. The new estimates also say that the health care law will, in the short run, benefit the economy by boosting demand for goods and services because the lower-income people it helps will have more purchasing power. The report noted that the 2014 premiums that people pay for exchange coverage are coming in about 15 percent lower than projected, and the health care law, on balance, still is expected to re-

duce the federal deficit. However, the budget experts see the long-term federal deficit picture worsening by about $100 billion a year through the end of the decade because of slower growth in the economy than they had previously predicted. As for health care signups, the website woes have largely been cleared up, but the nonpartisan congressional analysts estimated that about 1 million fewer people will enroll through the new insurance exchanges than had been expected this year, for a total of 6 million. Enrollment is predicted to pick up, topping 20 million in 2016. The exchanges, or online marketplaces, offer subsidized private coverage and cater mainly to middle-class people who don’t have health care on the job. The Congressional Budget Office also revised its Medicaid enrollment projection downward by about 1 million, for a new total of 8 million signups in 2014. About half the states have accepted the health law’s Medicaid expansion.

Woman on the rebound wants back in ex’s court DEAR ABBY: After a two-year relationship ended, I got pregnant on the rebound. I called my ex and told him I was having a baby with another man because I wanted to hurt him. Apparently it worked — at least that’s what his best friend told me. Now that a few months have passed, I ran into him and all those loving feelings I had for him came rushing back. Should I tell him? The father of this baby is a good-for-nothing deadbeat. He wants to be father-of-the-year without helping me financially. What should I do about my feelings for my ex, and what should I do about the father of my baby? — CAN’T DECIDE IN NEW JERSEY DEAR CAN’T DECIDE: It is time for you to grow up and accept responsibility for the situation you’re in right now. Your behavior has been immature and irresponsible. The child you’re carrying is going to need someone who can provide for him or her financially and emotionally. Because you have feelings for your ex, contact him and let him know, but don’t count on him wanting to reconcile. Then you should also contact a lawyer about ensuring that “Babydaddy” lives up to his financial responsibilities. And in the future, when you decide to have sex with someone, recognize there could be consequences and use birth control. Every time! DEAR ABBY: Recently my mother and I got into an argument on a four-hour road trip. She didn’t like my opinions or my answers, so she kicked my 17-year-old daughter and me out of her vehicle and abandoned us in an unsafe neighborhood two hours from our home. She has done it twice before, and I have yet to hear an apology from her for dumping us on the curb. Luckily, my son was able to come and retrieve us. Most people would have cut her off the first time she pulled this stunt, but I’m a “three-strikes-you’re-out” kind of person. I have given my mother many opportunities to apologize for her behavior, but she refuses to acknowledge her own wrongdoing. I have decided this is the last time this will happen to me. I no longer speak to her and won’t allow my daughter to go any-

where with her for fear she will be dumped somewhere unsafe. My other kids — ages 21 and 22 — say I should get over it. Was cutting her off a reasonable response? — THUMBIN’ FOR A RIDE DEAR THUMBIN’: Your mother appears to have a short fuse and poor judgment. Is cutting her off a reasonable response? I think so. Dumping someone in an unsafe neighborhood could get the person killed, something we see all too often in the media. If you ever decide to relent, however, and go anywhere with her, make sure you are the one behind the wheel because it’s clear Mama can’t be trusted when she’s in the driver’s seat. DEAR ABBY: My family and I moved to Iowa when I was in high school to be closer to the other side of the family. Because we had lived in California, we didn’t interact much with our Iowa family. So now, even though we have been back in Iowa for the last eight years, they still forget our birthdays and don’t include us in family get-togethers. How should I deal with this situation? — EXCLUDED IN THE HAWKEYE STATE DEAR EXCLUDED: It appears you’re being punished for the “sins” of your parents. (Could there have been some friction with the Iowa relatives that caused the move to California?) All you can do is talk to them and see if you can improve the situation. Consider inviting them to YOUR family get-togethers and you may get a positive response. However, if they are not receptive, then it will be up to you to create a “replacement” family out of the people you have become close to in your community since your return.

Team manager Vest is a lift for Newton eighth-grade girls By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Win or lose on the court, Newton eighth-grade girls’ basketball players were greeted with a smile, a high five and a good job from their manager. Throughout the 2013-14 basketball season, Baileigh Vest has had the Cardinals’ back as one of the team’s managers. Vest brought her experience as a basketball manager from her former school — Zuni Hills in Surprise, Ariz. — to Berg Middle School. “I wanted to be a manager again here,” Vest said. “Basketball is one of my favorite things. I like seeing my friends play in the games. Also, I like being with my friend Natalie (Camp), watching the games and cheering the team on.” For her dedication this season, Vest was an honorary captain for the Cardinals in their final game of the season Jan. 30. Vest smiled the whole time, standing with her teammates as the officials talked to team captains for Newton and Grinnell. Vest is a special needs student at BMS, but has fit right in with the basketball team. Addy Blom, a player on the eighth-grade team, said Vest is so much fun to be around. “Baileigh is always smiling. Last year, we didn’t have managers at all. She has done a great job being a manager this year,” Blom said. “She’s part of our team.” Assistant coach JoEllen Linn said she was approached at the beginning of the season if she and head coach Eric VanderVelden were open to having a special needs student as a manager. “Why not? Everyone is welcomed on our team,” Linn said. “It has been a good experience for everyone involved on our team. Not only are we a basketball team, we are a family. We are teaching more than basketball.” Vest said she enjoys being a part of the basketball team. She said she’s responsible for filling the water bottles for the players and getting the basketballs out at practice. Blom said Vest is there, rebounding the basketballs during shootarounds before practices and games. “When I’m having a bad day, Baileigh can brighten things up with her smile,” Tessa Keeton said. “She’s always high-fiving us and telling us we’ve done a good job.”

Vest’s mother, Jamie Vest, said her daughter doesn’t realize she is any different than anybody else. She said her daughter is developmentally behind others her age. “She loves being active with other kids. As a mother, it is so great to see how these girls and coaches and the school has really surrounded Baileigh. It’s not just for basketball, but all day and every day at school,” Jamie Vest said. Jamie and her husband, Tom Vest, moved their family back to their hometown area from Arizona. Vest’s brother, Brodee, who is 12, goes to Aurora Heights Elementary. “I sit with Baileigh every other

Eagle bowling teams compete By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor KNOXVILLE — Pella Christian finally fielded a full girls’ bowling team for competition Saturday in a triangular meet hosted by Knoxville. “There have been so many conflicts this season. It’s nice to have that behind us,” PC bowling coach Rod Blunck said. “It looks like we can be pretty competitive if we can manage to get everyone there.” Pella Christian’s girls finished third with a 1,828 score. Knoxville won with 2,413 followed by Norwalk at 2,253. Anna Burg led the way for PC with a 253 two-game score, followed closely by Alexis Wright at 250 and

stand up to people who make fun of her at school,” Linn said. Vest said when she asks the coaches what to do, they tell her “to be good and fill the water bottles. It’s been so much fun this year. I just tell the players that they did so great, and I hope they do better in the next game.” “Baileigh is always positive,” VanderVelden said. “Every day she encourages her teammates, gets the water for them and asks us if she can help in any way. At the end of each practice, she wants to tell our girls they are doing a great job. That means a lot to the players and to Jo and I, as well.”

Max Shannon threw a 321 and Caleb VanZee had a 301. Pella Christian was third at 2,307 with Knoxville winning with a 2,845 pin count. Norwalk finished with 2,596. “The boys showed good improvement in the total score for this week. Individually, the boys didn’t have as high a score as some have had in the past, collectively they were very consistent. There was only 46 pins separating high and low this week,” Blunck said. Pella Christian goes to Oskaloosa this Saturday.

Jupiter plays show and tell with his moons now. The Big Daddy is making his closest approach to Earth, with his face fully illuminated by the sun. The total number of moons orbiting Jupiter is still unknown, but of the 63 widely accepted luminaries, the four discovered by Galileo are the bright spots visible tonight.

to something you’ll buy that will align you with a particular group of people.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 5). You don’t have to have magical powers to spin straw into gold this year. Make the right deal, and do the work using the appropriate tools for the job. You may doubt yourself in March, but rush forward anyway and claim your riches. May and September will be the most romantic months. Family grows in June. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 1, 22, 8 and 17.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your astral gift of the day is clear vision that helps you define your purpose so precisely that others can easily see it, understand it and know how they can help you with it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A Russian proverb says: “Don’t buy the house; buy the neighborhood.” You won’t be purchasing either today, and yet the saying applies

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People say that the best things require work and are not produced in haste. However, sometimes what’s fast and easy is the glorious reward for all the laborious and failed efforts that came before.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll stop working when the work is done and not a moment sooner or later than that. This is the secret to your success — an amazingly simple key, and yet few will do as you do. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The cleverest of people are usually not trying to be clever at all; rather, they are trying to solve a problem. Your problem

today will have to do with lightening the mood. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you feel positive, loving and kind, you’ll radiate the good vibes that have people gravitating toward you whether you want them to or not. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Those who most need your leadership will resist it. How frustrating. You only have their best interests at heart. Alas, you’ll have to find ways to be more influential. It’s just the excuse you needed to grow your charisma. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Take the time to figure out what you really want to do. Once you know this, you’ll feel better about everything else in your life. All will fall into place. Your conviction is something to admire, and admire it they will. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Hype and passion are not the same things, though they are often confused. Passion is about inner

desire, not exterior motive. Hype tends to follow the money. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People whose lives are stressful sometimes use up all of their self-control in keeping it together. That doesn’t make them bad people. Those who are not as loving and patient as you may have good reasons. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When love is strong in you, as it is right now, you can forgive, and it’s not that big of a deal to do so, even if you have to forgive the same action over and over before the other person finally gets it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Your preferences are different from what some people seem to think you ought to prefer, and that’s how you know they are true. Your heart doesn’t take a vote and move on consensus. It does what it does. COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM

The Great Debate: is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era? By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer There was no shortage of controversy leading up to the Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye “Bible vs Science” debate held Tuesday night at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., and live streamed around the world. It’s a debate that has seemingly been rehashed over and over in multiple forums and styles of debate. But Tuesday night’s public forum, moderated by CNN’s Tom Foreman, was perhaps the most anticipated and widely publicized since the Scopes Trial of July 1925. Christians in the community looking forward to the event staged a number of “watch parties.” One was held at Computer Pro in downtown Newton, where owner Adam Vandall, his wife and about a half-dozen others watched the debate intently. “I thought the debate went well,” Vandall said. “Interesting topics on both sides. I get the feeling Bill Nye was more concerned with making the United States smarter in science and not necessarily worried about the spirit and souls of men.” Bill Nye, who is famously referred to as “The Science Guy,” represented the science side of the debate but had been chastised by evolutionary theorists and atheists for taking part. In the lead-up to the event, he explained what his role would be. “I’m not going into this as a scientist as such. I want to remind everyone — I’m a mechanical engineer,” Nye said. “I am going in

The following are some of the questions asked of Ken Ham and Bill Nye by members of the audience during their debate Tuesday night. To Ham: How does creationism account for the celestial bodies; planets, moons and stars moving further apart and what function does that serve in the grand design? To Nye: How did the atoms that created the Big Bang get there? To Ham: The overall majority of people in the scientific community have presented valid physical evidence such as carbon dating and fossils to support evolutionary theory. What evidence besides the literal word of the Bible supports creationism? To Nye: How do you balance the theory of evolution with the second law of thermodynamics? To Ham: Hypothetically if evidence existed that caused you to have to admit the earth was older than 10,000 years and creationism didn’t occur in six days, would you still believe in God, the historical Jesus of Nazareth and that Jesus was the son of God? To Nye: Since evolution teaches that man has evolved and growing smarter throughout time, how do you explain the numerous evidences of man’s high intelligence in the past? To Both: What is the one thing more than anything else upon which you base your belief?

as a reasonable man, and I think that to just call attention to his belief system has value.” Ken Ham, who is president of both Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, represented the creationist side of the debate. He laid out his argument in his opening statement, often referring to his peers throughout the course of the remainder of the debate. “It’s wrong to assume scientists can’t also believe in creationism,” Ham said. “I believe science has been hijacked by secularists who seek to indoctrinate the religion of naturalism.” The format of the debate started with a five-minute opening statement by both men, followed by 30-minute presentations for them to further their sides of the debate. They each had five minutes of rebuttal, after which they answered questions submitted by members of the audience. Those who didn’t see the debate will be able to watch the archived video at “I highly recommend watching the debate, no matter what side of the issue you are on,” Vandall said.

Waterloo preliminary plan for mosque WATERLOO (AP) — The Waterloo City Council has unanimously approved a site plan for a proposed mosque, cemetery and soccer field. The council voted Monday night to approve the plan by the Bosnian Islamic Association of Waterloo for a 15-acre site, according to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier. Last October, the council opted not to act on the proposal because of concerns the city could be liable if the planned cemetery failed. “A cemetery is very important to our community and Muslim people,” said Amel Dizdarevic, speaking for the association. The association will later return to the zoning commission and council for approval of a more detailed site plan. It wanted council approval of a rough site plan before spending money on more expensive and detailed plans for the project.
