All but one of Iowa’s Members of Congress have indicated that they do not intend to vote for a military strike on Syria. Our own Rep. Steve King, R-Kiron, is the lone hold-out. King told the Sioux City Journal late last week that he has been too busy to issue a statement on where he stands — unusual for a man with such a strong compass. And, unusual in that he made time to appear with two other congressional Tea Party advocates to congratulate Egypt on its military coup.

Back in the day, the Iowa Department of Transportation had a plan to connect two major bike trails to Storm Lake: one runs through the Iowa Great Lakes, and the other runs from Lake View to Carroll and, eventually, even to Des Moines. Then-Director Mark Wandro in the Vilsack Administration suggested that a bike trail could run along an expanded shoulder of Hwy. 71. For reasons we never understood, nothing materialized.
