Gas stove bans explained: Are natural gas stoves actually a 'hazard'?

In recent weeks, gas stoves have been branded by some as a danger — to both public health and the planet — that need to be phased out. To others, that notion is ridiculous.

"Gas stove bans" primarily are about the effort to stop new construction from being piped for natural gas. What to know.

Iowa Girls State Wrestling Tournament has come to town! Come fuel up on good food between matches :)

Thanks for including us in your list of go tos Iowa City Press-Citizen!
Our thanks to Paris Barraza and Iowa City Press-Citizen for this story.
On Saturday, Anti-Choice protesters from Iowa City and beyond marched to Emma Goldman Clinic for their leg of the nationwide "March for 'Life'". EGC supporters lined the sidewalks in front of the clinic, forcing the Antis to stand across the street from the clinic.

We here at Emma Goldman Clinic are grateful to live in a community that supports us and our mission. There will always be people who don't believe in our mission to provide quality gender-affirming reproductive healthcare to the people who need it and we are so very thankful for our supporters who come out en masse.

If you find out that you've been blocked or your comments have been hidden on any government social media page you can file a lawsuit against them for a civil rights violation.

Elected officials cannot delete comments or block users based on the content of the speech on their official government social media accounts!! When public officials use social media as government actors, the First Amendment prohibits them from censoring differing viewpoints. Blocking users or deleting comments because they express critical opinions offends the Constitution and principles of transparency.

We all have free speech rights when we use social media. Both the U.S. and Iowa State Constitutions guarantee your right to free speech. That right doesn’t go away when you go online. When public officials act on behalf of the government, they are subject to the limits that the First Amendment imposes on them as government actors. If a public official invites comments on a social media page concerning public matters or otherwise intentionally designates it as a space for public discussion, the social media page becomes a public forum. Where public forums are involved, public officials cannot exclude people from accessing the page just because the official disagrees with them.

If a public official uses social media as a government actor in the above ways, the official cannot exclude people for having differing viewpoints. This means they can’t block users, delete specific comments, or restrict access in other ways on the basis of the viewpoints expressed. The government cannot unjustifiably interfere with your freedom of speech when you use social media to share your thoughts or to engage in discourse with public officials. If you believe you have been wrongfully censored by a public official, you can file a complaint with the ACLU.

What is the purpose of the News Media (i.e. KCRG-TV9, Iowa City Press-Citizen, CNN) if the whole story never gets finished?

You think a pathetic sob story of a local dry cleaners ends after "more than a century" is all you need? Why not "dig deeper" and research what will happen to the other "competing" dry cleaners (Bradley's Cleaners (formally known as Concord Custom Cleaners), SonShine Cleaners and Citywide Cleaners (aka Albert's Cleaners).

Three dry cleaners love the new business Varsity Cleaners Iowa City dumped on them, but the work load is getting out of hand! Especially, after surviving , there appears to be no workers willing to work at a dry cleaner for a few hours.

Unfortunately, working at a dry cleaners is not a glamorous career job, but a side job that needs to be done to keep up with demanding customers who dump their week(s) load of laundry at someone else. The way customers are demanding, makes me understand how slaves feel - slaving over their master's needs, immediately. Also, I do not listen to customers who say, "I'm a paying customer" - so are the other customers that just came by (there are, after all, eight billion humans (despite the COVID19 deaths) on this earth)!

Was Varsity's article an opportunity Varsity paid for their story? If so, what is news if the story is paying the writers for information for a natural for the to ? Why do people really need to pay for their newspaper to get this news? Sounds like style new source.

Perhaps, this is a perfect scenario of why I do not bother wasting my money on newspapers. I will get my sources elsewhere, by double checking with multiple sources (unlike Fox News customers who think news should just be "one stop shop" and no double-checking other sources).
