However, that 17/o is the most dedicated and pro- fessional group of individuals that you can find - when you look at our service men and women of today in the eye, you are very impressed with what is looking back at you. So remember, each time you see someone who is serv- ing or has served our country, take time to say Thank You. That's all most of them need and, in most cases, it will mean more than any awards they have received. So as a former 'Brother in Arms', I thank all Veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made in defending freedom and ensuring the continued secu- rity of our Nation! I wish each and every one of you a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving! Remember, Thanksgiving is a day we pause to give thanks for what we htve and Veterans Day is a day we give thanks to the people who fought for the things we have .... . ..... .+,..;.+ ,- . = :=,..... .. : -=ir With FreS]i, Seasonal Produce by James Parker (NAPS)---You can jazz up everyday meals by cooking with seasonal produce and considering these fresh answers to questions about keeping mealtime healthy and delicious: 1. What tastes best cooked on the grill? During warm months, vegetables like squash, peppers and eggplant are all in excellent supply and are great for outdoor grilling. Grilling peaches are a delirious dessert option. As weather cools back down, figs, bananas and pineapples taste great on the grill. 2. How can you make a typical salad sing anytime of year? A great salad, no mat- ter the time of year, pses in- season ingredients. In the heat of summer, add berries, peaches or nectarines to your leaf-based salad. Cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and basil are all excellent in the summer and fall. Turn to apples, figs, pears, grapes and citrus to jazz up fall salads. 3. Which ingredients will add a burst of flavor and nutritional value to an ordi- nary vegetable side dish? Fresh herbs can really add flavor to any dish. For eLm- ple, try chopped mint over melons, oregano in a sautd or parsley sprinkled on a salad. Nuts are nutritionally dense and add texture to any salad or side. You may also care to try this recipe from the experts on taste at Whole Foods Market, in which the rich- hess of smoky grilled vegeta bles is well complemented by the creaminess of goat cheese: Grilled Veggie Knd Goat Cheese Pitas Serves 4 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems Pick a pita pocket of good- ness filled with seasonal vegetables. removed and gills scraped out 2 zucchini, sliced lengthwise 1 red onion, cut into 4 even slices 1 red bell pepper, thickly sliced 3 tablespoons bal- samic vinegar I tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil teaspoon sea salt teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 4 ounces Humboldt Fog or other fresh goat cheese 4 whole wheat pitas or thin sandwich buns, halved Preheat a grill to medi- um heat. Brush mush- rooms, zucchini, onion and bell pepper with vine- gar and oil and sprinkle with salt ahd pepizv r. Grin vegetables, covered, 8 to 12 minutes or until ten- der, turning once halfway through cooking (mush. rooms and onions will take longest). Set vegeta. bles aside to let cool, then roughly chop. Spread cheese in pitas and stuff with vegetables. For more fresh ideas, visit www.wholefoodsmarket.corm Mr. Parker is the global produce buyer for Whole Foods Market. KATE BALDWIN Concluded from p. 1 deep sentimentality these buildings have within the community. If individuals are interested in structural components of the Old School building or any of the other buildings (McLaughlin Building or the two metal storage buildings) they would need to contact Dan Cretors with DeCarlo Demolition at 515-243-1214. Per the bid specifications, the buildings are now property of DeCarlo Demolition. July 2012-The School Board appointed a SIAC Task Force Committee to review the facility needs for Cen- tral Office and School Maintenance operations. October 2012-The SIAC Task Force Committee issued a recommendation to the School Board. The Commit- tee recommended the Board to take action to move the offices and maintenance operations out of the buildings at 906 School Avenue and relocate to a flex building property at 380 Wright Road. December 2012-The Board entered into a purchase agreement to purchase the flex building property lo- cated at 380 Wright Road. February 2013 -April 2013-The future move of Cen- tral Office was listed on each regular monthly meeting agenda, offering an opportunity to public input. The District had also engaged in conversations with City offidals regarding the future of the site. The City in- formed the Board that the property was zoned R-l, single-family residential. During this time the Board commissioned a professional property appraiser to com- plete a market valuation of the property. The appraiser determined that the highest and best use for the prop- erty would be a residential housing development. The appraiser recommended that the lots be cleared, with the exception of the one-story building, and the prop- erty be sold as vacant lots for new home construction. Estimated cost for demolition of old school and metal building was $110,000-$125,000. Estimated land value as vacant lots would be a minimum of $145,358. May 2013-The Board took action to advertise the property for sale "as is" with the intent of receiving of- fers for potential uses of the property with the existing buildings. Offers were due June 30, 2013. July 8, 2013-The Board received one offer, submitted by the City of Norwalk to acquire the property for a price of $1 if the School District agreed to remove all of the buildings except for the one-story wooden build- ing. The City would acquire the property to be used for a community park and primary age children's recre- ational fields. The Board considered the City's offer along with the appraiser recommendation. The Board decided they had a fiduciary responsibility to see if th@ property could be sold as vacant property for the pur- pose of a housing development. Offers to purchase the property as vacant property for development were due September 11. September 12-The Board received one offer to pur- chase the property. The Board did not have a full quo- rum at this special meeting and decided to defer any action until the next regular meeting September 16. September 16-A full quorum of board members was present. The Board decided to reject the offer, move for- ward with the demolition of the buildings and then possibly re-offer the property for sale at a future date. September 27-School administration advertised the demolition project and received three bids on Septem- ber 27. The low bidder was DeCarlo Demolition Com- pany of Des Moines. Demolition is scheduled to begin November 11 and is scheduled on or around December 15. October 9-Board Member Rick Kaul, Superintendent Denny Wulf, Business Manager Kate Baldwin and Grounds Director Tom McLaughlin held a neighbor- hood meeting with residents that own property adja- cent to the school property/lot. The purpose of the meet- ing was to update the neighbors on the process used to determine the future of the school property and the timeline for the demolition project. Four individuals representing three households attended the meeting. October 15-Business Manager Kate Baldwin and GrOunds Director Tom McLaughlin held a community- wide meeting to update any interested parties on the process used to determine the future of the school prop- erty and the timeline for the demolition project. Four individuals attended this meeting. Two were residents of the Norwalk Community School District and two were out-of-district residents. October 20-The Old School Building was available for final tour by community members and alumni. I do not object to people looking at their watches when I am speaking. But I strongly object when they start shaking them to make certain they are still going. -Lord Birkett
