Marion County schools got some help battling the heat this week as athletic events started up. The Marion County Emergency Management Agency and Marion County Conservation Department donated about 2000 one-quart water bottles to local school districts. The bottles were acquired in preparation for RAGBRAI; Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson says their focus is on the water going to a good community use. Schools picked up the water Thursday and yesterday and are able to use the bottles at their discretion.
