The Gazette covers City Hall, now a flood-damaged icon on May's Island in the Cedar River

Past council member Chuck Swore got Zach Johnson a Drive; now he launches a push to name a street for Kurt Warner

In Chuck Swore, City Hall on January 21, 2009 at 1:46 pm

Former council member Chuck Swore was the one who agitated first and succeeded in getting a street name here changed to Zach Johnson Drive in honor of the Cedar Rapids native and Masters Golf champion.

Swore on Wednesday is the first to surface now to name a street after another Cedar Rapids native and sports champion, NFL quarterback Kurt Warner.

Swore suggests the perfect street is the one runs between 15th Street SW and Rockford Road SW – which is the entrance to Kingston Stadium.

Warner, a Regis High School graduate, is leading a team into the Super Bowl for the third time.

Johnson, who won anew on the PGA tour last weekend, is also a Regis grad. His street is a little stretch that runs into Elmcrest Golf Course, where Johnson played golf growing up.

  1. Chuck, Chuck, Chuck

    What are you thinking suggesting changing the road currently named VETERANS MEMORIAL DRIVE to Kurt Warner Drive?

    Are you saying that Kurt Warner deserves more recognition than our Veterans (some who have given up their lives)? No Chuck you are completely off base on this one and you need to look elsewhere for a street that you can name Kurt Warner Drive – you insult all Veterans by making this suggestion.
