Box 325, Norwalk, IA 50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association Sweet Potatoes Update (NAPS)--For 200 years and more, a 0he-dish meal of seasoned beef and mashed potatoes has been known as cottage pie. Like any classic, it's ready for an update--and a sweet-potato topper does the job. Think about b~eaking through a golden crust into sweet.potato creaminess, and then into a succulent layer of seasoned bee Comfort foods with such q tm!i'ties are oRen problematical on the nutri- A Comfy Classic Cottage Pie with a "Sweet" Twist. 1 teaspoons fresh thyme or teaspoon dried thyme or herbes de Provence, LETTERS OUR POLICY We publish letters to the editor when they are not libelous and when they are signed by the person or persons submitting them.

To the Editor: I'd like to comment on the recent changes to High- way 28 (Sunset Drive) in, the area between "old" Norwalk and The Legacy area. It is a shame that with the technological advancements now available that the lights all along Hwy 28 are so out of sync. The one that is most annoying is the new left turn light that goes to Medicap, the dentist's office, etc. Why in the world is there a red light that stays red a LONG TIME, especially when the visibility is at least a half mile, leaving plenty of time for that left turn. Is this just another form of traffic trap - give tickets for mak- ing a perfectly safe left turn because the driver doesn't care to sit and look at an empty highway? I really hope someone comes to their senses and gets a "Yield on green" sign to replace the idiotic red light. In this day and age many are concerned with fuel con- sumption, greenhouse gases, pollution, etc and the bril- liant minds that love to put up unnecessary traffic lights program them to stop traffic and make cars sit idle for long minutes for no good reason. And one more thought on Norwalk's unfriendly traf- fic plan: on Sundays why don't we just put flashing red lights on the Highway lights, and flashing yellow lights on the side streets? My husband and I were out Sunday afternoon, about 1:00 p.m. and had to stop at the Fareway sign with absolutely no side traffic (pretty much all the businesses in the Fareway plaza are closed on Sunday). In closing, I would like to see some common sense enter the arena of traffic management, but what are the chances of that? /s/Leigh Carpenter 7705 Hwy 28 Prole, IA 50229 Start the day off matters 515-223-1150 P.O.
