In my previous column I talked about a meeting between a delegation from Toledo and the governor's office regarding the Iowa Juvenile Home (IJH). That meeting occurred the afternoon of Nov. 15 at the capitol. The delegation included attorney Jim Roan, President of the State Bank of Toledo, John Kavalier, past IJH teacher, Yvonne Mallory, South Tama school, Superintendent Kerri Nelson, county attorney Brent Heeren, Mike Husak, former Rep. Lance Horbach, Toledo mayor Dave Svoboda and me. Tama mayor Dan Zimmerman was not able to join us due to personal commitments. I want to thank the IJH staff and the entire Tama-Toledo community, it was their enthusiastic support for IJH and the IJH children that drove this high-level meeting to save the Toledo facility.
