Ma,,iie[d Village, OH. 08A00360 IA.Qt;PX.BW (08/08) REVIEW Join the Arbor Day Foundation The Arbor Day Founda- tion is making it easier for everyone to celebrate the arrival of spring through planting trees. Join the Arbor Day Foundation in March 2012 and receive 10 free white flowering dogwood trees. "White flowering dog- woods will add year- round beauty to your home and neighborhood," said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Founda- tion. "Dogwoods have showy spring flowers, scarlet autumn foliage and red berries that will attract songbirds all winter." The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees for America cam- paign. The trees will be ship- ped postpaid at the right time for planting, between March I and May 31, with enclosed planting instruc- tions. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be re- placed free of charge. Arbor Day Foundation members also receive a subscription to Arbor Day, the Foundation's bi- monthly publication, and The Tree Book, which con- tains information about tree planting and care. To become a member of the Foundation and re-" ceive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to TEN FREE DOGWOOD TREES, Arbor Day Fotmdation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by March 30, 2012.

LIBRARY HOURS Monday - Thursday 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Friday & Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Sunday, 1 - 5 p.m. Closed Sundays (Memoml Day-Labor Day) Changes at Norwalk Family Physicians Norwalk Family Physicians has made some changes during the past couple of months. First, the clinic has upgraded their x-ray services to a digital process..The digital films are available immediately at the physician's computer to review with the patient. In addition, the films are all over-read by a radiologist at Iowa Radiol- ogy. This change will affect patients because the clinic will bill insurance for doing the x-ray and now the radi- ology office will bill insurance for the interpretation of the x-ray. However, the overall cost of x-rays should remain constant. Secondly, effective March 3, 2012, the clinic has ex- tended their Saturday hours to begin at 8 a.m. and run until 12 noon. Patients can call the clinic beginning at 8 a.m. to schedule a time to be seen on Saturday morn- ings for acute, urgent care. Lastly, Dr. Patricia Newland has changed her clinic schedule. She is now working all day on Wednesdays and working Thursday mornings only. "By making this change, we can better accommodate patients on Wednes- day afternoons, which is a busier time in our clinic than Thursday afternoons," stated Ronda Montgomery, Clinic Administrator. "We are constantly looking for ways to better serve our patients and community," said Montgomery. "We are always open to ideas that we can implement to reach this goal." Harkin Encourages Iowa Students to Apply For Summer Internships Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) has announced that his Washington, D.C. and Iowa offices are now accepting internship applications for Summer 2012. Summer interns assist the staff in casework, legisla- tion and in the press department working in a variety of policy areas. Responsibilities include performing office duties, writing and researching current legisla- tive issues and acting as general support to the Senator's staff. Internships are designed for collegeuDgtergra:du- ates, students seeking a masters or law degree and re- cent graduates. "Years ago, I interned for Representative Neal Smith in the House of Representatives. The experience pro- vided me with an invaluable firsthand education in how government operates and was the start of my political career. I encourage bright, young men and women who share interest in public service to apply for an intern- ship in my offices," Harkin said. Part-time and full-time internships are available in Harkin's Washington, D.C. personal office, on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Com- mittee that Harkin chairs and in his five Iowa offices (Des Moines, Davenport, Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City). The deadline for submitting an applica- tion is March 16, 2012. Students who are interested in becoming an intern can apply via the web at http://harkin.senate.gov/stu- dents/intern. Questions can also be directed to the In- tern Coordinator in Harkin's Washington, D.C. office at 202-224-3254. Senator Harkin also recorded this video about the benefits of interning in his office: http:// www.youtube.com/user/SenatorTomHarkin?o b=0&feature=results_main#p/u/4/zBAs0_lie9k. The only head of government in this century to give birth to a child while in office was Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, in January 1990.  7 ' .-- " IIIIIII .......... .. 1 .....
