Nature photography for youth

OXFORD– Capturing your favorite moment in nature isn’t always easy. Years of experience outdoors can help you capture those moments and learning from someone that has had years of experience enjoying nature is even better. The nature photography for youth class, to be held at the Conservation Education Center at F.W. Kent Park, on June 30 beginning at 8 a.m., will provide participants with an opportunity to learn from a local birder and naturalist, Rick Hollis who has spent years honing his skills observing nature and capturing those moments.

All spaced out

IOWA CITY— In November, Johnson County voters will see a bond referendum on the ballot to fund a new criminal justice center to replace the existing sheriff’s office, jail and courthouse. The board of supervisors will be asking the taxpayers for $46.8 million while dipping into reserves for the balance of the $4.8 million (estimated) project.
As part of a campaign to make the case for the new combined facility, the board arranged a tour of the jail and courthouse for the quarterly meeting of local governments, held June 20 in Iowa City. Supervisor Rod Sullivan explained why.

The un-Dewey-ing of a library

NORTH LIBERTY– Before the North Liberty Community Library began making big changes with its expansion, staff was busy making some important changes to its content.
The library did away with the long-established Dewey Decimal system of shelving and cataloging books and other materials, changing to a system that organizes them by their subjects.
While the staff members say it will make it much easier for patrons to find things, it was not an easy undertaking to make such a huge transformation.
In fact, it took over a year to complete the change-over.

At that time, City Administrator Ryan Heiar told the North Liberty City Council hiring Peterson as a staff member would reduce the city’s legal budget by about $59,000 per year from when Peterson was paid as a contractual employee.
