• The five-star menu featured at the farm breakfast hosted by Hansen’s Dairy, near Hudson, last Saturday was an all-Iowa fare including ham, pancakes, butter, milk, corn muffins, granola-yogurt parfaits, fresh apple slices and cider. After breakfast, visitors could ‘milk the cow’ at a wooden stand, ride on a trolley to the dairy for a tour, see the cows, pet friendly goats and watch kangaroos close up. This is the second year the Hansen family has offered the breakfast. — Hudson Herald

• The Jasper County Board of Supervisors failed to act on or publicly disclose a recommendation for professional mold remediation issued in April after an air quality company found confirmation of black mold spores in the basement of the county annex building. The lab analysis studied areas throughout the 88-year-old building but found only elevated levels of mold spores in the basement which houses four county department offices. Professional mold remediation was recommended, however, the findings and recommendations were never disclosed to the health board or employees in the area. — Jasper County Tribune
