Reflections on 2013 As we come to the end of the year, it is natural to think back over the year that is coming to a close and to look forward to the Coming year. Looking back on the 2013 legislative session, I was pleased that we were able to continue spending less than the state receives in rev- enue. We passed property tax and education reform bills. Even though both were a result of compromises with the Democrats in the Senate, they did move us for- ward. We must all remember, and thank, our men and women in uniform, especially those who are overseas away from their families, They sacrifice to protect our way of life. An important event for me personally was the move from the House of Representatiyes to the Iowa Senate, as a result of the special election. I now represent nearly all of Warren County as well as Madison County. I am looking forward to working on the issues that I ran on, as I have in the House. I should find out soon what com- mittees I will serve on. Another big event in our family was the marriage of son Jeff last November to a wonderful young lady. We are pleased to have her as an addition to our family. As do many families, we traditionally get together with our extended family for a few days around Christmas time. It is a great honor to have the privilege of represent- ing you in the Iowa Legislature. I am looking forward to hearing from you as the session proceeds. As always, feel'free to contact me with your ideas or concerns. OBITUARY MICHAEL J. EWELL Michael J. Ewell, 45, Norwalk, entered into rest Saturday morning, Dec. 21, at his parent's home.
