Ramsey report

Clarke County successfully prosecuted the perpetrator of a home improvement scam whereby an unlicensed carpenter simultaneously collected multiple deposits for materials and home improvement jobs across Iowa, Missouri, and Minnesota. There was apparently no intent to do any work or to purchase any materials. Unfortunately, a Clarke County family fell victim to this scam. After providing the carpenter $5,000 for materials, the Defendant never came back and never delivered any materials. Cases like this often remain unprosecuted and are considered a civil matter because criminal intent in this scenario is notoriously difficult to prove. However, this case did result in a conviction and a judicial order for $5,000 in victim restitution.

Fowler-Banta

In April of 1854 Lorenzo Dow Fowler and his wife Joanna, children Philip and Laura, came to Osceola from Ohio. At that time the eastern states were becoming more crowded and many of the people wanted to move west. There were few people living in Iowa at that time, and Fowler could buy land for a farm at a very low price.
