Need a job, just apply to the State Department of Education in the capitol complex. Don't pass the screening criteria for an interview, not a problem. Don't have the correct qualifications for the position approved to be filled by the state's Dept. of Administrative Services, not a problem. All you need is a "connection" to the Director of Education. Nepotism is alive and well at that state department. Iowa's public education will continue to suffer and Iowa taxpayers/voters are being shortchanged with what the "Education Governor" has put in place in the Dept of Education leadership. Underqualified, underexperienced leadership that has no real clue or plan that can be achieved. Iowa's children will suffer from this gargantuan mistake in Branstad's choice of a Director of Education. Clean house before it is too late.

I wish someone from the media would explain to me why a chef who tells the truth about something gets more news coverage than a federal government employee that lies to congress.

The only thing I can see that's better with our government since Charles Grassley and Tom Harkin have been representing us is their Compensation package.

I would like to know how someone, who lives at home; works; and pays no bills, can get $200.00 a month in food stamps; when someone on disability or Medicare who, pays rent and all their utilites and only gets 1/4 of that amount. What's wrong with this picture?

To the City Boy tired of supporting farmers. Do not be mistaken, you definitely are not supporting the farmer, but because of him you have food to eat, materials for things in your home, at your job & at your choice of lay. You need to be grateful to the farmers out here because without them, all of us would have a very hard time surviving on our own. They are not JUST farmers either, as now it takes a lot of knowledge, education & hard work to be a successful farmer. Before knocking them, go out & follow them around the farm for a few days.

To 25 year old just amazed: Your a complete idiot! I have paid in to Social Security since I was 16. The government has spent this money foolishly through the years. I deserve my money that THEY have supposedly put away and invested wisely!! I'm glad your not my child. Read a paper once in awhile.

With Terry Braindead as Iowa's governor, it is no wonder why people from other states think IOWA stands for "Idiots Out Wondering Around."

Calling school off for cold weather? How are kids to learn responsibility? We went to school when the real temp was -20,-30 or worse. We slept in upstairs bedrooms, without heat. We walked down long farm lanes & waited for the bus. These younger generations shirk responsibility more & more. Parents need to teach their kids to dress warm & send them off to school. Not sure who's a bigger winer, the kids or their parents.

I agree, let's not change anything at the State Fair and keep it just like it used to be! Let's shut off all the air conditioners in the buildings, don't take any kind of credit/debit cards anywhere, and oh yes - no golf carts, trams or motorized carts - the walk will do you good!
