FRIDAY DAILY


HERE'S A GREAT WIDE-ANGLE PHOTO TAKEN LAST NIGHT BY MY SON DAVE VOY AT THE CORNER OF MAIN AND PLATT.


THE  "TATTOOS"  PLACE HAS MOVED FROM WEST PLATT STREET, NOT FAR
FROM MAIN, TO WEST PLATT STREET, ACROSS FROM "DOLLAR GENERAL".

NOW WE CAN NOT USE THE KMAQ FRONT DOOR AT ALL.   THE SIDEWALK
IS GONE.     THE NARROW STRIP OF SIDEWALK AT RIGHT IS ALONG THE
BIG WINDOW AND FRONT DOOR.   AND WHEN THEY DUG UP THE OLD SIDEWALK, THEY FOUND TWO WINDOWS BELOW, MEANING AT ONE TIME THERE WAS A BASEMENT BUSINESS BELOW THE NORTH HALF OF THE KMAQ
BUILDING AND PROBABLY ALSO A STAIRWAY DOWN TO IT.

IT IS "HOME GROWN" SWEET CORN TIME IN MAQUOKETA.    ON SALE ABOVE
JUST EAST OF K.J.'S CONVENIENCE AND GODFATHER PIZZA.



ONLY 85 TODAY.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD TONIGHT AT "GREAT JONES COUNTY FAIR".
