Letter To the Editor:
To the people of Polk County, I have called the Road Company and have asked them to come out and fix my road. It is so bad you have to drive almost off the road to go up and down. My son has almost flipped his truck on this road. The drainage pipe is showing from the holes that are there. My husband has gone to their office and has gotten mad. But still they do nothing but sit over there and collect our tax dollars. There are families here with small children that have to use this road. What do we have to do? Have some one get hurt before they do anything?

The Polk County Health Dept. would like to thank everyone who participated in our Breast Cancer Awareness Event. Hopefully we have helped to raise awareness of breast cancer and the benefits of early detection and treatment. The funds raised through the dunking booth at the homecoming football game will benefit ladies who are in need of mammograms but cannot afford one. Special thanks to those individuals that were gracious enough to sit in the dunking booth, Detective Ken Ritenour of the Benton City Police Dept., Officer Casey Carver with Juvenile Probation, and Mr. Jared Frazier of the Polk County School System. Without the help of these individuals this event would not have been possible. We look forward to working with these community partners in the future to help better the health of the citizens in our county.
Polk County Health Dept. staff.
