Logan’s Law bill signed by Governor Reynolds during ceremony in Charles City

first_imgCHARLES CITY — The bill named after a Charles City teen who died after sustaining brain injuries in an ATV accident is now law.The law will let people signal their intentions to be an organ and tissue donor when they buy a hunting or fishing license. Governor Kim Reynolds was in Logan Luft’s hometown Monday to sign what has become know as Logan’s Law.“It is my great privilege and honor to sign Logan’s bill into law. Luft tough,” Reynolds said, to applause.The bill signing ceremony was held in the Charles City Middle School gym, the same place where the boy’s funeral was held.“By him signing on to be an organ donor, he saved multiple lives,” Reynolds said. “…Where else would we have signed it, but right here? And the gym was full with a compassionate, caring community that has lifted the Lufts up through some really tough, tough times?”The Governor and Lt. Governor following the signing.Logan Luft was 15 when he was involved in an ATV accident on the 4th of July. Five of his organs were donated to others. Since teens are able to get hunting and fishing licenses in Iowa, they may declare that they wish to be an organ donor just as Logan was.“This is an opportunity to really allow young people to have the same impact that Logan has had on individuals and families,” said Reynolds.Lenny Luft, Logan’s dad, said his son was an avid outdoorsman, and this is a fitting tribute.“It was his passion. It was something that I loved to do and it was something that I loved to do with him and the rest of the family,” Lenny Luft said. “We first started off on his grandfather’s pond catching fish all the time and all the way up into deer hunting and turkey hunting trips.”The long process of lobbying legislators to pass Logan’s law was a learning curve for the family, Luft says. He also says seeing how his son’s organ donations benefited five others helped the family through its grieving process.“By having organ donation, it has saved us as a family as a whole just because it has given us purpose,” Luft said.Logan’s Law passed the Iowa Senate and House by unanimous votes. Key lawmakers who worked on the bill attended Monday’s bill signing ceremony in Charles City.last_img read more

Moving Up in Ganta: A Proprietress’ Journey From Side-walk Soup Stand to Modern Restaurant

first_imgThe business community in Ganta, Nimba county will long be remembered and highly respected for their willingness to comply with the municipal mandate to “dress back” their business structures and also renovate them to accommodate the road infrastructure and other developments going on in their city. As part of the mandate, the Ganta City Council required that all businesses located on the main street of Ganta convert their structures to flat-tops or multi-storey structures, thereby giving the city a new look, from the ground up – literally. It was a painstaking endeavor but, one by one, bit by bit, the resilient proprietors have made the vision their own, and are expanding their businesses as a result. Justina’s Bar & Restaurant, one of the biggest restaurants in Ganta owned by a Liberian entrepreneur, is poised to expand like the proprietress herself never before imagined. “I’ll be taking the building to a two-storey level, where the first floor will be a bar for wedding receptions and the second floor will be a hotel,” proprietress Justina Dahn Yormie told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview. “I started this business by selling meat pepper soup and rice on the sidewalk,” she said. “Gradually, the business grew, until I am able to reach this far.”The demolition exercises in Ganta affected her restaurant, as it did many of her fellow proprietors. The cost of renovation, especially building a flat-top roof, can be a very expensive endeavor. Like her neighbors, Justina now needs financial assistance to reach her target, as the demolition exercise set her back financially. But see what she has done with the restaurant: completely tiled floor, with a glass façade on the front and modern furniture, a decent upgrade from the regular plastic tables and chairs that used to be there. The restaurant is spacious enough to accomodate 180 persons and has 20 employees that run on three shifts. The restaurant is a 24-hour operation in a border-connected city that hardly sleeps. The building had a regulation look after demolition exercises compelled structures in the surrounding area to be transformed to flat tops or one storey buildings.The restaurant part of the building was among other business centers that were demolished during the construction of the Gbarnga – Ganta – Guinea border road, which was dedicated in March this year. Madam Yormie further told the Daily Observer that, despite the demolition, her business center is still moving strong and she hopes to continue modernizing it. She said the only way for a business to be successful is for the owners to be very serious and focused on goods and services. “Once you are able to manage small money,” she said, “you will also be able to manage bigger amounts.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
