Deed Letter Causing Confusion A form letter from an out-of-state company is causing confusion for some Iowa homeowners. The letter comes from National Deed Service, Inc. of Northbrook, Illinois. In the letter, the company states that homeowners "should have an official or certified copy of their deed," and offers to obtain a certified copy of the homeowner's deed for $59.50, which includes "lo- cation, retrieval, postage and handling." Homeowners can come to the county recorder's office and get the same certified deed for a $5.00 certification fee plus copy costs. In most cases, it is not necessary for the homeowner to keep a certified copy at home since the official record resides in the county recorder's of- rice. There is no reason to pay that kind of money for a deed. We can provide that service to you. It is more impor- tant to know where your abstract is and keep it safe. Polly Glascock Warren County Recorder g- bb Dear Friends, Did you see that Norwalk was voted as one of the most affordable communities to live? hLtp:/d images.businessweek.com/ss/10/03/0302 affordableh:- urbs/1.htm Not only is it affordable, but it is a wonderful com- munity. One of the things that sets Norwalk apart is its generosity. We've seen this in the "school back pack" and "school Christmas gift" collections. Crossroads Church wants to continue to enhance Norwalk's appeal by spearheading a HUGE goal. We want to organize a community, effort to purchase and package at least 40,000 meals for Haiti. Working with Meals from the Heartland we believe that our wonderful community can raise enough funds to buy and package aLlea 40,000 meals. The dollar amount to do so is $6,000.00. While Crossroads Church is willing to organize these efforts, we obviously need the community's sup- port. Do you think this is something you would like to be a part of? On May 1 t, Meals from the Heartland will be dropping off their assembly line equipment at Crossroads Church. You are invited to help purchase meals and then come and be a part of the assembly of these meals. This is open to the whole community...Churches, Schools, Businesses. If you are receiving this infor- Iion and know someone who can make the dear sion to get involved, please pass on to them. So .... do you think your organization would like to help raise funds and package meals? Who knows, you may be able to buy a lot more than 40,000 meals if sev- eral Norwalk organizations get involved. Wouldn't it be great if we could buy and package 40,000 or 80,000 or 100,000 meals???!!!! Wouldn't this help demonstrate even more how wonderful Norwalk is?? Please let me know by March 15 if you would like to help and how much you could donate toward meals. That way I can get an idea of how many meals to order. Each meal costs 15 cents. The ingredients are provided by Meals from the Heartland. http://www.mealsfromtheheartland.org/ about-2/ -a donation of $100 can provide about 670 meals -a donation of $500 can provide about 3,333 meals -a donation of $1,000 about 6,670 meals Peace, /s/Pastor Glen Blumer Nationwide Service for Vans, Reefers and Flatbed Trucks Call Elite when you want your shipments handled the right way.
