Newton city management analyst Natalie Umsted says Newton was set aside with its own award, while Elkader, Sheldon and Waterloo were named as All-Star Communities by the Iowa League of Cities during the League’s Annual Conference & Exhibit.

A partnership between the City of Sheldon and the Sheldon Community School District turned green space along Highway 18 into a Joint Community Sports Complex. The Complex includes three ball diamonds and three acres of green space, along with concessions, restrooms and storage.
