We can't thank Dr. Baber enough for the years of' compassionate care she has provided to the valued clients and patients of the Carlisle Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Sloan is a native of Carlisle. After graduating from Carlisle High School, she attended undergradu- ate school at the University of Northern Iowa, and con- tinued to veterinary school at Iowa State University.

GOP Caucus Location Rick Halvorsen, the Warren County Republican Chair- person, announces the location for the Repub|ican Cau- cuses to be held on Tuesday the 21 t of January. In the past the Caucuses have been held in various precincts around the county. Since there is no presidential elec- tion this fall the turnout for the caucuses is usually lighter on these off years. With that in mind the Warren County Republican Central Committee will be hosting the Cau- cuses all at one location. We are hoping that this format will encourage more participation by Republicans throughout the County. Starting at 6:00 PM will we be serving a chili and po- tato soup supper for a free will offering at the Fellow- ship Hall located at 707 E Euclid Ave in Indianola. The caucuses for all precincts in Warren County will then be held at that same location beginning at 7:00 PM. The purpose of the caucus is to elect two people from each precinct to sit on the Warren County Republican Central Committee, also to elect people to go on to the County Convention to put the County Republican platform to- • gether. The caucuses are the starting point for the planks that will help make up our County Platform. At the cau- cus you will have the chance to write and discuss planks to go into the County Platform. By having the caucus at one location we have an op- portunity to get a candidate or two for the US Senate race to stop by during the evening to tell you why they deserve your vote in the primary election in June. There will also be several elected officials from the County and maybe the State level that will be speaking. If you are interested in attending the County Convention then bring your check book because there will be a fee to attend that event which will be hehi on March 8 th.
