    Steven Leasure

    Search planned for missing Burlington, Iowa man
    Family and friends are asking for help to find a man who’s been missing for nearly a month. The last time 53-year-old Steven Leasure was seen was on May 2, 2015.
    His sister Sheryl tells KWQC that he was seen at the Circle K in Burlington on Maple Street, putting air into his bike tire.
    She says she has been working with a Facebook group who is trying to get a search organized for Saturday, June 6, 2015. Information on the search can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sout...8167028196611/
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — Police in eastern Iowa are still working to identify human remains found earlier this month near a small lake.
    Law enforcement officers from several agencies used a cadaver dog and a boat to search the West Lake in northwest Burlington for about six hours on Tuesday, the Hawk Eye reports. That comes after they say a badly decomposed human foot was found on June 8 by people clearing brush around the lake.

    Do more than forgive: forget.
