Jim Carley wants to go to the Iowa House District 30.   Politicizing a food pantry?  And what's green about bike lanes? 

Editor's Note:     "Dear Jan,  I am the Director of the Knoxville Food Pantry.  I want you do know that our board of directors does not endorse anyone running political office.  A a volunteer on duty distributing food to families here was asked if the Democratic Party could inform people concerning pre-registration to vote, and the volunteer gave them permission to do that.  Helping Hands does NOT endorse ANY political candidate for ANY political office.  Thank you."    Signed  Robert C. Smith
