Secretary of State’s failure appears to have undone Constitutional Amendment

Members of the Iowa Firearms Coalition (IFC) have just received word of what appears to a massive blow to their efforts to add the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to the State of Iowa’s Constitution.

Hey everybody!  Well the snow has stopped and the sidewalk is cleared so I thought I would take a moment to send you the following update from Public Works.

Crews transitioned snow removal efforts to residential roads early this morning.  Please park off-street on residential roads today, Sunday, January 13, when you are able.  Parking off-street helps crews to clear roads more safely and efficiently, especially on narrow roadways. 

After many months of dedicated work by several local vendors and craftsmen, we are proud to announce that The Tangled Wood will be open for business on Monday, January 14, 2019 at 3636 Tanglewood Road in Bettendorf, IA.

The Tangled Wood is the next stage in the evolution of the beloved local bar, Governor’s. We believe the new name embraces the scale and setting of the new location as well as the communal feel we are striving to provide for the community.
