The funds that wilt be collected are spelled out in both the question and by the Iowa Code. In Nor, walk 50% of the money will be used for capital improve- ments for recreation, convention, cultural or enter- tainment facilities. Other uses will be in the General Fund, but could be used by a City Council for economic development, marketing or another purpose allowed by law. It is a tax, but it is not a direct tax on you. You pay it now in places where you travel whether that is business, pleasure or personal and it is a fact of life. It is something that Norwalk needs and if we are fortunate, to land a, facility like this, it will be an important revenue resource.

Nicholson, 54, Iowa City, who died Wednes- day, Oct. 17, at UIHC after an amazing fight with colon cancer. Burial was in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Iowa City. Memorials may be directed to the Nichol- son Children's Educa- tion Fund or to Colon Cancer Research at The Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center in care of The University of Iowa Foundation. Mr. Nicholson was born June 13, 1953 in Sul- phur Springs, TX, to the Rev. James B. (former pastor of Norwalk United Methodist Church) and Alice Walker Nicholson. He graduated from Nor- walk High School in 1971 and the University of Iowa in 1975. He was married to Mary Eliza- beth (Beth) Donohue in Iowa City. Oct. 6, 1984, Mr. Nicholson began work- ing at the UI College of Medicine's Department of Occupational and En- vironmental Health starting in 1988 as a re- search assistant, doing field work for the Iowa State-Wide Rural Well-Water Survey. That study has been of international impor- tance in documenting private rural well wa- ter contamination by farm chemicals and has helped raise awareness of this important issue. For the past seven years, he was Project Coordinator for two studies addressing occu- pational exposures at the Iowa Army Ammu- nition Plant (IAAAP) outside of Burlington; the Burlington Atomic Energy Commission Plant - Former Worker Program, and the IAAAP Munitions Workers Study. )ks coordinator, he was the primary go-be- tween between the re- search staff and the funding agencies at the US Departments of En- ergy and Defense. Mr. Nicholson was well known to his col- leagues for his positive attitude, sense of humor and his gift for connect- ing easily with people of all walks of life. Survivors include his wife, Beth; two daugh- ters, Morgan and Emma, and one son, Adam, all of Iowa City; his fa- ther, James B. of Wash- ington; one brother, Jimmy (Pat) of Slidell, LA; one sister, Teresa (David) Fleming of North English and a dog, Sadie. He was preceded in death by his mother, Alice, and his father- in-law, Francis Dono- hue. In honor of Mr. Nicholson, the Univer- sity of Iowa flag was flown at half-mast over the Old Capitol Oct. 24. (Edftor's Note: Informa- tion regarding Mr. Nicholson "s ties to Norwalk were not in- cluded in the original obituary we received from the funeral home. Thus the reason printing an additional obituary.) OBITUARY CARRIE DAVENPORT Services and burial were held Wednesday, Oct. 24, in Osceola for Carrie Davenport, 96, of Osceola.
