Quotes

"This is very fulfilling to me," said Day, who now lives in Fairfield. "I've always wanted to do art, and an art show. In 1982, we issued our first poster. We tried to make them more graphically interesting. So not only would they commemorate an event, they also became a type of avant garde collectible. As the 200 posters [Twin Galaxies issued] developed, they became more and more artistically amazing."
According to a press release from Sen. Tom Harkin's office, "Throughout his life, Mr. Harbour has modeled courage, kindness and respect, and today we celebrate his noble service to the United States of America."
"It's more about prevention," said Director of Student Services — Housing and Retention Jennifer Sabourin. "(Improving graduation rates) is a nationwide issue, and this will help our current efforts. We want to amp up what we currently do."
"Once you get started, you can't quit," said Yates. "I don't want to make a hog of myself. But this young man cooked these ribs; he's real good."
