I ^•MMIIIItMllllllllltlXII'HIIItMlllllllttllllltllMMIIll' I960 has been an eventful year. The cold war between democracy and communism continued un- aba'ed with charges, counter charges, and threats thrown from every angle. In the United States, record numbers of voters turned out to elect a new president. John F. Kennedy. In Iowa. Norman Erbe was elec'ed as the state's governor. In Postville, construction work is drawing to a close on the new community hospital. • • » « * In our community, there have been accomplishments in 1960 that were hopes of ours at the turn of the past year. A new planning and zoning ordinance went into effect providing orderly construction for the growth of the community. New home construction, while it was down from, previous years, provided some beautiful additions to the community. The community gained a new doctor and a new, modern doctor's office. Progress continued as the telephone system was changed over to dial service. Modernization of our business district was pushed along with a modern face added to the Postville State Bank. Census fig- \ires showed the community had a healthy growth in the past ten years, the population increasing by nearly 20 per cent. -•***» We still have much hope for in 1961 on the local scene. As usual, we can hope for good weather, good crops, and continued peace throughout the world. As a community we can hope that the new year will bring us some of the progressive steps needed to continue our growth in the urban life of nor'heast Iowa. We would like to see an expansion of the corporate limits of the town to allow much needed building sites for use today and tomorrow: we would like to see a home building project which would add 10 to 20*medium priced homes for use here: we would like to see more recreational facilities for the youngsters of our community, yes. even including a swimming pool: we would like to see a continued modernization of business through new stores layouts and new fronts: we would like to see more business Dartners joining the retail life of this community. A good indication of what out-of- staters think of Iowa roads is shown by a hand made road sign near Eitzen. Minnesota which reads. "Danger. Iowa mud." Mr. and Mrs. Harlan Foels saw this sign on a recent trip.

Statton and Erbe. State Safety Commissioner Donald Statton has proposed a truce in the feud between his office and Republican Governor-Elect Norman A. Erbe. Statton, a Democrat, has made public a letter he sent to Erbe in which he offered to meet with Erbe's choice for safety commissioner "in order to make the transition of control as easy as possible." Statton said "through a series of events, we have been pictured as enemies and the fact that I will not be safety commissioner under your administration probably will be in terpreted as another incident in our disagreement." Both Statton and Erbe are from Boone and the safety commissioner said he wanted to avoid any interpretation of a feud for many reasons, "not the least of which is that we have lived as neighbors for many years." In his letter, Statton offered to resign "on any date" Erbe suggests and to meet with the new commissioner "as often as may be needed." with Mrs. Helen Hanson and family in Monona, and Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Loftsgard were supper guests in the home of Mrs. Hanson Saturday evening.
