What's Happening at the Wieting?

June 1, 2017
By RLou Snyder , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

This weeks column is a questionnaire about what you know about Tama County. We will start with Toledo, the county seat.

The first thing we will discuss is the Wieting Theatre. What are Mr. and Mrs. Wieting's given first names. How do you spell each of them?

What is the name of our hometown young man who has two successful tv series? He was born and raised in Toledo. He also graduated from STC High School.

What is the name of a local artist who appeared on late night television and discussed her career. She was well know nationwide, especially in Iowa. She was viewed at work in Des Moines each August. She also has one of her creations (sculpture) on a hill behind a local restaurant under an old oak tree on business highway 30 and 63.

Where were prisoners of war housed during WWII? These buildings were built for some of our residents of Tama-Toledo. After the war the main building was used as a manufacturing plant. In what part of Toledo did these events take place?

If I sent you on a scavenger hunt to find music at your feet, where would you find them? Just look down, but where?

These are just a few things of interest in Toledo. We have things of interest if we inquire and listen to local people talk about this place. I will have more to discuss in weeks to come.
