Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 3, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Stage Set For Iowa Speed Cut AM KS (AP) — The Iowa highway commission believes it will cost about $.‘{0,000 to change about 3,000 highway signs to comply with the 55-mile per-hour speed limit imposed by a new federal law. The limit on Iowa interstate highways now is 75 mph for cars and 65 mph for trucks. The night speed for cars and trucks is 65 mph. Primary daytime highway speeds are 70 mph for cars and BO for trucks. Sixty is the speed limit for cars and trucks at night. Two-Week Task The commission’s traffic safety director, Harold Schiel, said crews will begin the two-week Rep. Richard Drake The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., Jan. 3. 1074 Reasoner Lauds Iowa's Ability to Lead Ity Gary Peterson DES MOINES — “Iowa enjoys great respect around the country for ihs ability to lead,” Harry Reasoner, ABC news commentator and anchor m a n said Wednesday, here for the kickoff of the “iowa 2000 program.” The project will attempt to have iowans address themselves to their aspiration* for the future in four major areas — energy, economic development, natural resources and life enhancement. “The kinds of progress this state can make in a hurry is significantly higher than any other state.” Reasoner said he has heard it said in connection with iowa and its problem solving ability that the problem of cancer should “be sent out to Ames and they would have a cure in a year. Iowa had corn blight one year and cured it the next.” Very Individualistic Reasoner, a native of Hum- mm __    ____ Harry Reasoner . . . Praises Iowans . . . boldt who is making a three-day visit to his home estate, said he sees Iowans as very individualistic. “They need to get a sense of community participation. Take Daylight Savings time. my uncle Harold used to say he didn’t care what they did in Des Mo inc*, he was going to stay on God s time. “This is the type of attitude that must be tempered. “ ('ailing the state innovative, Reasoner said “Iowa’s problems are all problems of opportunity as opposed to problems of panic. “American journalism,” said Reasoner referring to problems of panic, “has always been good at reacting to problems, but not good at forseeing them. “The same is true for the whole society. There are problems today that were here IO years ago that either no one looked for or no one listened to. “I know there are problem* now that will affect people in the year 2000 that you or I haven’t thought of doing a story on. But they are there somewhere.” Avert Problems Through “Iowa 2000” the state hopes to avert as many forseen and unforseen problems ais it can. Iowa Gov. Robert. Ray launched the project, which begdn Wednesday and will culminate in a governor’s conference on Iowa in the year 2000, next June Ray said the basic reason for “Iowa 2000” is that “this stale of ours will not be what we merely imagine it to be in the future. “It will be what we want it to be, but then only if we set goals, make necessary sacrifices, extend the required effort and have confidence that these goals will be reached.” ABC’* Reasoner said, “Iowans are the best educated and most intelligent people in the country. Right Choice “Iowa is in a position to make the right choice and respond to the urgency of its problems. I would hate to see a state in that situation do nothing with the problems they do have, ft is encouraging to see the r^.tablishmont of the state not letting the problems of the future sneak up on them.” During his visit, Reasoner Was scheduled to prepare a television program which will be used to spur interest in the “Iowa 2000” program. It can be seen on KCRG-TV Jan. 13 from 6:30 to 7.30 p.m. Reasoner said the questions on the program will cover the    industry arid how to handle anticipated size of the state in    zoning and related environ- the future, the need for new    mental problems.

Drake said his bill will propose the 30 mph limit for city 'esidential areas to eliminate ;peed traps. Residential speed imit now is 25 miles an hour. “At least some cities have left speed limits arbitrarily low so that they can set up speed traps," Drake said. “They move their corporation lines out into rural areas where there is maybe only one farmhouse within a mile or so. “Then they nab the guy who drives 30 miles an hour out (here, and the fines go into the city coffers.” Custodians Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Kohl’s combined monthly: salary was raised from $500 to; $600, and County Engineer Donald Smith's annual salary was increased from $19,000 to $19,500.
