Author Kathy Girlus will be available to sign her new children's book, "You Don't Love Me Anymore" at the LeClaire Information Center on Dec. 23, 2012, from 11a.m. to 1p.m. The Information Center is located at 122 N. Cody Road in LeClaire, Iowa.

"Have you ever experienced a magical day when every moment was like a giant sugar cookie with frosting on the top?" says Girlus. "Tanya's day in this book feels more like a plate of lima beans and is far from a magical day. I hope you will agree that Tanya is a tenacious, creative, clever and delightful example of a child facing a not so perfect day."

Girlus was in the teaching profession for more than 30 years and has always enjoyed working with children. The story of Tanya in "You Don't Love Me Anymore" comes from her experience of raising two children. The book is illustrated by artist Jean Downey.

Girlus now lives in LeClaire and enjoys all the charm the small river town has to offer.

For more information, please contact Girlus at 563-508-0352 or email kathygirlus@msn.com.

1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
