[November 04, 2008]  Lincoln College Communiversity is helping people deal with upcoming winter weather woes as the college hosts a Winter Weather 101 course on Nov. 18 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Johnston Center for Performing Arts.

Lincoln College is teaming up with the National Weather Service and WCIA to teach people about the facts of winter weather. Chris Miller of the National Weather Service in Lincoln, along with Kalee Dionne, who is a weather forecaster for WCIA, will teach the one-hour course. A goal of the course is to debunk some of the winter weather myths that people believe and provide ideas on how to keep safe when a winter weather system hits.

CivicCommuniversity director Jean Ann Miller thinks the course is timely and will provide some interesting facts. "Teaming up with the National Weather Service and WCIA will help people understand the factors that go into a winter storm," she said. "I think participants will gain valuable knowledge on what to look for and how to stay safe when the weather takes a turn for the worse." Miller is also happy to see a former student help with the program. Dionne earned an associate degree from Lincoln College in 2005.

Registration for the course ends Nov. 14. The event is free and open to public, but registration is required in order to have ample handouts for participants. To register for the course or for more information on the Communiversity program, call Jean Ann Miller at 217-732-3155, ext. 251, or e-mail jamiller@lincolncollege.edu.
