Auditor Martin Presents Plat Book to Local Photographer
Story County Auditor Lucy Martin presented a 2012 plat book to Marcia Wefel-Rima. The latest edition bears her award-winning photograph on its cover.
The Auditor’s Office prints a county plat book every year. For the fourth time, a cover photograph has been selected from entries to Story County Conservation’s annual Partners photo contest.
"We like to showcase the natural beauty of Story County with our plat book. There are so many great entries from talented local photographers that it is difficult to choose." Martin said.
Wefel-Rima’s photo, “Taking the Boat for a Spin” at Hickory Grove Lake, won the 2012 Photo Contest. It was the photographer’s first entry in the contest. She heard about the competition when she attended the spring Partners Festival at McFarland Park. Wefel-Rima began taking nature photos about five years ago when she received a new digital camera.
2012 Story County Plat Books are available for $20 in the Auditor’s Office, 900 6th St., Nevada.
