Q: Will the Hallmark Channel be offering anymore “Cookie Jar” movies with Alison Sweeney?

A: It doesn’t look as if more “Murder, She Baked” movies are planned. But last fall Hallmark Movies & Mysteries announced Sweeney would be producing and starring in a new series, “The Chronicle Mysteries.” She’ll play Roberta “Robbie” McPherson, a novelist and podcaster who researches cold cases and loves solving any puzzle or mystery.

A: Decorah Newspapers reported in February that Hy-Vee was exploring opening a new store in the former Quillin’s building in Decorah. No final decision has yet been made.

Q: Where can I donate used eyeglasses?

A: The Lions Club has donation sites throughout the Cedar Valley in restaurants and optometric offices where both glasses and hearing aids can be placed. A member picks them up every month. Last year, the Waterloo club gathered more than 3,500 pairs of glasses from the Cedar Valley. Both eyeglasses and hearing aids are recycled for use in Iowa to those who cannot afford them otherwise. If potential donors cannot find a donation box location, they should call Jim Tierney at 232-1002.

Q: Can you print the song lyrics to “Shallow”?

A: Here they are:

“Tell me somethin’, girl

Are you happy in this modern world?

Or do you need more?

Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?

I’m falling

In all the good times I find myself

You have free articles remaining.

Become a Member

Longin’ for change

And in the bad times I fear myself

Tell me something, boy

Aren’t you tired tryin’ to fill that void?

Or do you need more?

Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I’m falling

In all the good times I find myself

Longing for change

And in the bad times I fear myself

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in

I’ll never meet the ground

Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us

We’re far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow

In the shallow, shallow

In the shallow, shallow

We’re far…”
