Layton praised at going away party in Iowa

Wichita’s incoming city manager, Robert Layton, was praised for his quarter-century career in Urbandale, Iowa last night and said it’s tough to leave, according to a story in the Des Moines Register.

“I love movies about Iowa, and ‘Field of Dreams’ is my favorite. And I can’t stop thinking of a quote from the movie: Once a place touches you like this, the wind never blows as cold,” Layton told the newspaper. “It’s so hard to leave.”
