Area residents interested in learning more about storm spotting are invited to attend a class sponsored by the Newton Amateur Radio Association later this month. Officials from the National Weather Service from Johnston will conduct the storm spotting class set for 7 p.m. Thursday, March 21, at the Jasper Community Center located at 2401 1st Ave. E. in Newton (old Aldi's building).

The class is free and open to the public.  Everyone is welcome!
