To the editor:

A sincere thank you to everyone who attended my retirement open house, or who called or sent cards. It’s been a wonderful experience writing the stories and taking the photos of the great people of Newton.

It will seem stranger to attend the events of Newton and Jasper County without a camera and a notepad. Thanks to all of you for a fun 13 years. And that goes for all my fellow employees, as well.

It's completely out of hand, more needs to be done about it
It's pretty bad, but no worse than anywhere else in Iowa
It's getting better than it was 10-15 years ago
It's not really a problem here
