Much like a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent. For example, an announcement page would be great for keeping a record of weekly meeting notes, while providing quick access to the most recent meeting info.

Gov. Reynolds orders flags at half-staff to honor fallen sailor

 

(DES MOINES) – Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Saturday, October 13, 2018, to honor a fallen U.S. sailor killed during World War II.

 

Navy Seaman 2nd Class Bernard V. Doyle, of Red Cloud, Nebraska, was killed in action on December 7, 1941, when the USS Oklahoma was attacked by Japanese aircraft at Pearl Harbor. The 19-year-old was classified as non-recoverable until March 2018. Doyle’s remains were returned to his family for burial in Lake City, Iowa, with full military honors.

 

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Mass of Christian burial

St. Mary’s Catholic Church

Lake City, IA

11 a.m.

 

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.

 

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.

1956 GOP Platform

posted Oct 4, 2018, 9:23 AM by Thompson Courier Rake Register

  So I have been asked to look into the 1956 GOP Platform and from what I can tell most people are getting sent to or stuck at the meme wars. 
  First I should explain what a meme is... https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/meme and a generator if you want to make your own... https://imgflip.com/memegenerator
  The 1956 GOP Platform memes are...

Now to be fair and partial I will also include the 1956 Democratic National Convention...

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=29601

I have been for some time studying the meme wars that go on during heated topics.  It saddens me that few people remember the years at school of Who, What Where, When, Why and How?  Any topic at home, school, religion, politics, etc. can be dealt with answering these questions.

I hope you can read, learn, study and live out what was presented today. 

Submissions need to be facts only!

posted Oct 3, 2018, 9:16 PM by Thompson Courier Rake Register

  So I am currently being bombard by a campaign on opinions.  However, my small weekly doesn't take opinions. I do take facts though.  If you want to submit an article on facts on education or economics, etc. that would be great so long as you include traditional facts, have at least 3 different sources and leave out the opinions.  The readership gets the luxury of having the opinion after they read your article. 
  As for politics the article will be assumed an ad for any of the months leading up to voting time and must be listed as paid/sponsored by whom.
  I hope this is more clear to those of you interested in history and wanting to write and submit an article on the towns, county or state to be submitted to me for publication. 
  Thanks for your interest and I look forward to receiving and publishing them in the future.

Thanks to the tip on 10-3-18  I was able to track it a little but waiting on the formal paper work so I can track it.  Until the paper work is turned in I can't really track it through the system yet.  But the law now knows I am interested in following it and hopefully work with me.  Being a weekly though I wont print the info until the 10-11-18 issue.  Thanks for understanding.

The office says it was just education but will get me a press release for next weeks issue.

Gov. Reynolds orders flags at half-staff for Patriot Day

 

(DES MOINES) – Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all state flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, in honor of Patriot Day. The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Donald Trump’s proclamation to lower all United States flags to half-staff for the same length of time.


Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be at half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.


Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.
