' Iowa Learning Farms to Host Field Day in Dallas County Iowa Learning Farms will host a field day Wednes- day, Aug. 5, from 5:30-7:30 pm. at the Craig Fleishman farm, 17794 Quinlan Ave., rural Minbum. The field day will focus on the idea of integrating several conserva- tion farming practices to help reduce soil erosion and reduce nutrients entering Iowa’s water bodies. Iowa Learning Farms farmer parhter Craig Fleishman has been mindful of the changes he is making on his farm to do his part to help with the Iowa Nutrient Re- duction Strategy. His approach looks at the whole farm and what he can do to improve soil health and water quality while remaining profitable. He will share his approach to conservation farming at the field day. At- tendees will visit a field that has been inter-cropped with corn, soybeans, and oats, and also a field recently planted with a mixture of cover crops. Speaking at the field day is Rick Cruse, Iowa State University agronomy professor. Cruse has been work- ing with the Iowa Daily Erosion Project and will dis- cuss the concern of soil erosion in Iowa. Also speaking is Bob Hartzler, an ISU Extension and Outreach Weed specialist. He will offer tips and considerations for her- bicides and cover crops.

SEX-3(- -William James Question: Are job applications public records? v Editor’s Note: This is a monthly column prepared by the Iowa Public Information Board to update Iowans on the IPIB’s activities and provide information on some of the issues routinely addressed by the board. ANSWER: The Iowa Supreme Court ruled in April 1988 that under a 1984 amendment to Chapter 22 public agencies can make job applications confi- dential. In City of Sioux City V. Great- er Sioux City Press Club, 421 N.W.2d 895 (Iowa 1988), a five-member panel of the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that such confidentiality is provided for in subsection 18 of 22.7. ; The Court ruled that job ap- plications might be made con- fidential if the person so re- quests or if the public agency “couldreasonably believe that those persons would be dis- couraged” from applying if applications were available for public inspection. While subsection 18 does not provide confidentiality for communications required by law, rule or procedure, the Court stated that job applica- tions were not required as part of the hiring process since the job applicant is applying vol- untarily. In an August 1992 decision, Des Moines Register and Tri- bune man v. a Bar of Regents and Douglas Cra— m_er, Polk County Judge Ar- thur Gamble ruled that a pri- vate firm that had conducted a presidential search for Iowa State University was wrong in keeping secret the names of candidates who had no objec- tions to disclosure. To summarize, a communi- cation to a government body can be kept confidential under 22.7(18) only if all of the fol— lowing exist: (1) The communication is not required by law, rule, proce- dure, or contract. / PO Box 325, Norwalk, IA 50211 (2) It is from identified persons outside of government. (3) The government body could reasonably believe those per- sons would be discouraged from communicating with gov- ernment if the information was made public. Nevertheless, the information - should be released if the per— son communicating with gov- ernment consents to its release or if it can be released without identifying the person. In addition, a communication regarding an illegal act can be kept confidential if disclosing it would jeopardize a continu- ing investigation or pose a clear and present danger to the safety of an individual.
