The action last week by the Davenport City Council to move all its meetings to Wednesdays sparked some controversy, less for the substance of the day change than the swiftness with which it was done. (See "Big Hat, No Cattle," River Cities' Reader Issue 666, January 9-15, 2008.) Arthur Anderson filed a formal complaint on Friday, claiming "violations of the Council Rules of Order, Robert's Rules of Order, state law, the cities [sic] special charter, and the public's trust." He has requested a formal written response.

Each birthday, Christmas, or special event, they would add to our bracelets with a charm that commemorated the time, or just held special meaning for us, individually. This continued until we left for college. Needless to say, our charm bracelets are of tremendous sentimental value, and provide a sweet reminder of our childhood journey, as well as the thoughtfulness of both our aunt and grandma.
