Illegal parking, nuisance party fines increase Aug.19-21

In response to concerns about large house parties, noise, excessive drinking, unsafe behavior and illegal parking during the weekend before the start of Iowa State classes, the Ames City Council approved changes to the city code.

On Saturday, Aug. 20, vehicles that are illegally parked on streets from Lincoln Way south to Mortensen Road and from Beach Avenue west to State Avenue are subject to immediate towing.

Student food pantry looking to fill volunteer shifts

SHOP, the student-run food pantry at 1306 Beyer Hall, is looking for faculty and staff volunteers to help over the last two weeks of the pantry's summer schedule, including shifts running through Aug. 19. SHOP's student leaders also encourage faculty and staff to volunteer during the first two weeks of the fall semester (Aug. 22-Sept. 2), as it's hard to schedule student volunteers at the start of the semester. Employees should wait until after Aug. 18 to select fall shifts to allow students time to sign up. SHOP is a student organization that operates a free and confidential food pantry for students, thanks to community donations.
