Water cascaded out of Coralville Thursday as the army corps of engineers maintained discharge rate at 10,000 cubic feet per second (cfs). Discharge from the reservoir has contributed to flooding being experienced in areas of Iowa City. Officials said flooding could become more severe if additional rainfall forces the corps to increase the discharge rate.

... and faces up to the need for straight talk!
The 'professional politicians' say the issues can't be handled like this . . . With straight talk. Ii that is true, how can the people speak out? How can you agree or disagree with a "maybe"?
Chances are (as thousands have done) you'll say 'Yes' to most of these points . . . maybe 'No' to some others. But at least you will know what to say. And that's how the majority can rule.
