Monday, March 18, 6:30 p.m., the Russell Sportsmen's Club will hold an Iowa Permit-to-Carry class in the new education building southwest of Russell. The class is required by Iowa law in order to receive a permit to carry. The course is approximately 2½ hours of classroom time. Afterward, participants will receive a certificate of completion, which can be taken by the participant to their County Sheriff, who is the permit issuing authority. Permits are good for five years and may also be used as a substitute for a permit to acquire. To register for the class, call Dan t 6451-203-5296.
