City of Alta goes to the web

Thursday, October 26, 2000

Anitra Wolf was born and raised in the community of Alta, and now as a senior at Northwestern College in Orange City, she wants to give something back to her hometown.

Wolf has taken it upon herself to put Alta on the world wide web by designing Alta's own web site.

"I want to give a little bit back," Wolf said. "I'm learning quite a bit. It's a very new experience for me and it's so much fun."

The idea of an Alta web site came about when Wolf decided to take a class on web design this semester. Wolf's professor asked that each student come up with a project to work on. Wolf was talking to her mom, Deb Aberson, when she realized how she could use her project to benefit her hometown.

"I met with Jeff James (Alta chamber president) last weekend so I'm still in the very beginning stages," Wolf said. "I'm hoping to have my part of the project complete by December."

"I think it will be a really good thing to have to get some focus and publicity," James said. "I think it will be really helpful for those moving into the area and a big bonus to be able to highlight some of the events and the area businesses."
