U.S Census Bureau

With 2010 just around the corner, the U.S. Census Bureau is preparing to do that head count they do every ten years. Darrel Hysler works in the Cedar Rapids Office and says they are mandated by the Constitution every ten years to count the U.S. population. Hysler says they are currently hiring local workers to help with the process. He says the jobs pay between $11.75 and $15 an hour and have flexible hours which are good for someone out of work and looking around. If you are interested call 866-861-2010.

Mid Prairie Schools

The Mid Prairie School District will be holding school tomorrow. Normally Presidents Day is a day off for students but Superintendent Mark Schneider says with the numerous cancelled days during the winter they are making up days. He says making up days now will prevent them from having to push back the last day of school too far into summer.
