Norwalk, IA 50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association MAYOR Concluded from p.1 were seeking funding to complete the Southwest Con- nector and for the City - funding to connect Norwalk's existing bike trails to those of DSM; funding for a Com- munity Recreation Center; funding for an Amphithe- ater Park where the current Public Works facility is; and funding for a Norwalk Film Museum. We did not get any real "warm fuzzies" on any of these project requests except for the Bike Trails, but that requires the City to have 20% of the funds already guaranteed to pursue Federal assistance. In order to get funding support from any of our Con- gressional members, it requires relationships to be built and this trip really allowed that to happen. We can't get any money this year because all of the "mark ups" have already taken place (that happens in the March/April time frame), but we shall see what happens with next year's budget. Congressman Latham explained to us that since this is an election year, Congress will not pass a budget, but will rather work on a "Continuing Resolu- tion Authority (CIL,)/' until the next Congress is seated. Overall I thought it was a good trip and was "re- freshed" to hear some common sense from the politi- cians individuall but what they do when partisanship politics are exercised, then who knows what the out- come will be?!

A mystery dinner coin- ciding with the reading of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" was held April 20 with participants of the 'novel year book club.' Miles Earnshaw's valet was poi- soned and the group needed to solve the case in the Norwalk Easter Li- brary. The culprit was solved with no harm to anyone.
