Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 20 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., April 16, IO For Better Health nsion 10(1(1} By Jay Sharbutt Jean Shepherd's Humor rjNew Zoning Law Review Two Types of Products Available Nearly Done jQ    Deal with Problems rplimirmrv rpvimv nf n nm- NEW YORK (AP)-Radio humor, says Jean Sheperd. is an art “rarer than a five-winged butterfly.” He should know. He’s been at the art here since 1958. This year, he was set loose nationally on NBO Radio. For those who’ve never heard him, Shepherd isn't your usual Manhattan wise-guy. He’s more of a free association cross between Mark Twain and Herb Shriner. It’s a pity he’s only heard a few minutes on NBC’s “Emphasis” on weekdays and on “Monitor” weekends. He has an uncanny ability to bring genuine Americana into verbal bas-relief. Bom in Chicago, he was raised in a northern Indiana steel mill town he never identifies, apparently for fear the Chamber of Commerce will someday hire a hit man to say hello with a load of hot slag. * * * Although his NBC effort and most of his local radio work concern modern persons, themes and events, much of Shepherd’s fame stems from his spoken and written observations about youth in a rotting town. He spins magnificent yams about crappie fishing in fetid ponds, men who drink lots of boilermakers, life at Warren G. Harding school and mythical boyhood pals like Schwartz, Flick, Broder and Cosnowski. He is considered a master of blue-collar nostalgia. He also considers this honor a bum rap. “I’m not a reminiscer,” he groused. “I’m no more of a reminiscer than Bill Cosby. No, I’m serious. I’ve often wondered why, when Cosby talks about his mythical boyhood friends, he’s never called nostalgia.” * * * Shepherd, who does a 45- minute show on a local station here each weeknight, finds his audience a bit weird. They usually seem to recall only his dissertations on growing up in northern Indiana. “I don’t know why that is,” he said. “I've discovered that any time you mention anything to do with childhood on the air that’s as powerful to people as sex. “The next thing you know, they think that’s all you ever talk about,” he said, referring to childhood. “I’ll do three shows of satire on Norman Mailer and never heard a word about it, except from out of town. “I may do one story about Schw'artz and Flick and Broder and I’ll get a letter saying, ‘Gee, that's all you ever do and I love it.’ ” Alas, the local radio image he hates may wind up on rational TV because he wrote “Wanda Hickey’s Night of. Golden Memories and Other Disasters”, a collection of short stories about his adolescence. * * * He says there’s a strong possibility the book will be made into a TV movie this fall. The producers, he added, “want to use it as the basis for a series and I’d work in it both as a writer and performer. “They want to use an interesting technique, do it more or less in the ‘Our Town’ style, where I’d step in and cut of scenes.” It’d be his second go at national television. In 1971, he was on public TV in a wonderful 13-part exploration of the nation’s lesser-known comers in “Jean Shepherd’s America”. It appeared during an exciting era in public TV. he said, “but now they’re into old reruns of BBG castoffs. Ifs considered a great new program idea. They’re really deep into an Anglophile bag.” But the professor cf past and modem Americana doesn’t feel all is lost yet: “In fact, I saw a funny bumper sticker the other day on Sixth avenue. It said. 'Impeach Alistair Cooke’.” Preliminary review of a proposed new zoning ordinance for By Dr. S. L. Andelmun Cedar Rapids is drawing to a close, Planning Director Don; Salyer said Monday.

Tim Trimble, 1206 Eighth street NW, claims he was turned down when he applied for la job with the company last week because he has an artificial leg. “They told me I couldn’t do the work,” he told The Gazette. Trimble filed the complaint with the city human rights commission, which forwarded it to the state civil rights commission. The state unit has jurisdiction over complaints of discrimination against the handicapped, while the city docs not. Mark Doolin, administrative assistant for the city commission, said such complaints are fairly common. He also said that because of the huge backlog of complaints filed with the state commission, it could be two years or more before the Trimble complaint receives action. Hon Boyer, employe service manager at Wilson and Co., said he was not familiar with the case and had not been notified of the complaint. “We observe all the equal emplovment opportunity guide-personal that in all probability he would jjnes ” be said NORTH ♦ A Q 7 2 V 10 342 ♦ 97 ♦ 863 VV KST ♦ .18 5 V 7 5 ♦ g J10 2 ♦ J942 SOUTH (DI ♦ 10 4 V K Q J 9 3 ♦ K84 ♦ A K IO KAST 4 K 9 6 3 VAS ♦ A 6 5 3 ♦ y 75 West East-West vulnerable North    Ka st Pass Pass Pass 2* 4¥ Pass Pass South IV 3?

Restoration of Zoning Asked in Johnson Suit IOWA CITY — Alvin F. and Mary Joan Streb have filed a suit in Johnson county district court against Iowa City and the city council. The suit asks that the Streb property in Iowa City be returned to M-2 heavy industrial district zoning from R-1A single family zoning. The Strebs contend their land was involuntarily annexed and the zoning changed on Dec. I, 1965. Since then, the city has instigated several studies to determine the legality and appropriateness of the zoning action.
