By Lori Lindner

NORTH LIBERTY– It could be a good experience getting sent to this principal’s office.

Keeping it Lite

NORTH LIBERTY– Dana Cordero likes to keep things light.
“If people are having fun, it shows in their portraits,” said Cordero.
It’s one of the reasons she has become known for her senior portrait sessions.
“I guess word got out that it doesn’t have to be a painful experience,” she laughed.
Cordero’s new LiteRite Photography studio at 595 Ashley Ct. in North Liberty was born of a painful experience, but Cordero has the good nature to see the silver lining behind the rain-soaked clouds of 2008.

Honoring their valor

SWISHER- Joseph “Fred” Novotny, a former petty officer, third class, in the U.S. Navy, served his country in the vast Pacific Ocean theatre during World War II.
He remembered the change he saw in what was previously enemy territory, when the crew of the U.S.S. Arenac, an amphibious attack transport vessel that carried hundreds of troops, landed in the just-surrendered islands of Japan in Sept. 1945.
The occupying U.S. troops were greeted with welcome signs.
