FRIDAY DAILY

REMEMBER..YOU CAN CLICK-ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE.
TUESDAY, BECAUSE I AM A MEMBER, I ATTENDED A  POTLUCK AT THE PRAIRIE
CREEK PAVILION FOR THE FRIENDS OF JACKSON COUNTY CONSERVATION.
GOOD PLACE, GOOD FOOD, GOOD MEMBERS.
BOB MARTIN WOULD BE GLAD WE WERE THERE ENJOYING HIS GIFT.
A FEW PHOTOS TAKE....
NEW BRIDGE OVER THE CREEK
CONTRIBUTIONS BY INDIVIDUALS,  BUSINESS PLACES,  CLUBS....ALL WELCOME TO
ENHANCE THE PARK.    MAIL OR LEAVE YOUR CHECK AT THE CONSERVATION OFFICE
AT HURSTVILLE INTERPRETIVE CENTER.
THE PAVILION CAN BE RENTED AT A VERY REASONABLE COST.    IT HAS OVERHEAD
DOORS THAT OPEN TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY BELOW.    MANY PICNIC TABLES, A FIREPLACE IF NEEDED AND NICE REST ROOMS.
DRIVE-DOWN THE ROAD FROM SUMMIT STREET.    ENTER THE DRIVEWAY  NEXT TO
JACKSON INDUSTRY... AND SEE THIS GREAT NEW PARK.


NOW LET'S HEAD OVER TO THE FAIRGROUNDS TO SEE AND WHAT'S NEW....

THE WEST EXTENSION TO THE GRANDSTAND...IT IS CURVED TO GET BEST VIEW
OF STAGE.

THERE IS ALSO A  LARGE EXTENSION ON THE EAST END BETWEEN THE OLD
GRANDSTAND AND OPEN BEER GARDEN.   SEE BELOW.
NEW SECTIONS ARE HIGHER THAN OLD.     LOOKS LIKE WHEN COMPLETED, THERE
WILL BE ROOM FOR TWICE AS MANY PEOPLE AS BEFORE AND I BELIEVE EACH SEAT WILL HAVE A NUMBER.
ANOTHER BIG IMPROVEMENT, IN TIME FOR THE 2019 COUNTY FAIR,  AT
ONE OF THE BEST FAIRGROUNDS IN IOWA.







       MIB STARTS TONIGHT AT THE VOY THEATRE


LAWN CHAIRS, BACKS OF PICKUPS, BLANKETS,
A COUCH, A MATTRESS... YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU
WILL SEE AT THE 61 DRIVE-IN TO ENJOY A MOVIE 
UNDER THE STARTS.

THURSDAY



THE MAQUOKETA AMERICAN POST 75  CELEBRATED IT'S 100TH ANNIVERSARY LAST NIGHT AT THE TIMBER CENTER ON EAST PLATT STREET IN MAQUOKETA.
150 LEGIONAIRES AND VETERANS (AND SPOUSES} ENJOYED A FREE DINNER AND PROGRAM WITH MUSIC AFTER.     I'M A POST 75 MEMBER AND TOOK SOME PHOTOS.
THE HEAD TABLE.    IN THE MIDDLE, BONNIE MITCHELL, MAIN SPEAKER....
POST 75 ADUJANT CLIFF MERRICK.....AND POST 75 COMMANDER GERALD WEISS.
THE MAQUOKETA POST 75 BAND.    PHARMACIST HAROLD HINCKLEY WAS THE
TALL DRUM MAJOR, FRONT AND CENTER.
  A NICE CELEBRATION IN MAQUOKETA  LAST  NIGHT.




HERE, IN THE KMAQ-AM AND FM 92.5 STUDIO AND
CONTROL ROOM IS GRANDPA TOM MESSERLI.
TOM IS OUR LONG TIME PART TIME ENGINEER FOR
KMAQ.     HE KEEPS THE STATIONS ON-THE-AIR
(INCLUDING THE NEW 92.5 KMAQ BELLEVUE FM) AND
HE ALSO KEEPS THE COMPUTERS RUNNING AS THEY SHOULD.
LOOKS LIKE HE'S  STARTING TO TRAIN GRANDSON LANDON MELVOLD OF DUBUQUE, THE SON OF TIM MELVOLD AND HILIARY.   LANDON HAS A YOUNGER BROTHER TOO.
TIM'S MOTHER IS KMAQ "JUST TALK" HOST SHERI
MELVOLD.    WILL LANDON BE AN ENGINEER FOR SURE OR AN ANNOUNCER LIKE GRANDMA SHERI?   TIME WILL TELL.   HIS DAD TIM WAS A KMAQ STUDENT ANNOUNCER AT KMAQ ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO, AND NOW IS A BIG SHOT WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF DUBUQUE.      YES...LANDON'S GRANDFATHER
DOUG, A RETIRED NEWSPAPER MAN, MIGHT HAVE
OTHER IDEAS FOR HIM.    AND CERTAINLY HIS
LATE GREAT-GRANDFATHER BOB MELVOLD WOULD
WANT TO SEE HIM BE A NEWSPAPER MAN.
TO END THIS STORY, I RECALL BACK WHEN KMAQ
STARTED ALMOST 61 YEARS AGO, BOB MEVOLD 
PREDICTED THAT KMAQ WOULD LAST 6 MONTHS.
AND MY PREDICTION IS THAT LANDON WILL SOME
DAY WORK IN A FIELD THAT HAS ALL WEEKENDS
OFF.
