Crisis Food Pantry gets CROP check The 1988 CROP walk generated $4,926.85, reports coordinator Jim Noble. A check for $I,211.75 was pre- sented by Noble, right, treasurer Mike Cain and recruiter Dave Koos, far left, to Ruby Martin in care of Shelby County Crisis Food Pantry on Monday, Feb. 6. The remainder of the money will go to the needy overseas. The pantry helps an average of 15 to 20 families per month. All applications are confidential. Applicants by Editorial notebook How about that! Los Angeles got a reported five inch snow Tuesday. In Shelby County, our biggest snow was about two inches on Jan. 4. Other than that, we have had mostly traces of snow. Snowbirds, you better come back to Iowa! Terry Branstad, A hard-working governor Gov. Branstad has certainly matured in office. After a shaky start he is beginning to acquire the governor- for-llfe look that Bob Ray had. And he has that other political essential: luck. No one can take away something from the achieve- ments of former Gov..Bob R,y but his was an era when inflation could be relied on to pay the bills and planting hedgerow to hedgerow was what passed as farm policy. Gov. Branstad came in when the tides had turned; the easy money disappeared, and the farm economy turned sour. Nevertheless he, and Iowa, weathered the storm and the wake for Iowa's demise has been put on indefinite hold. Gov. Branstad has probably been one of Iowa's hardest working governors. He has traveled through- out the state, he has been in many of our Iowa small towns, he has worked tirelessly for economic develop- ment. He has certainly brought the governorship to the rural areas of Iowa by his visits. Yes, he has done, and is doing a good job considering the troubling times Iowa has been through. -LM.
