According to the U-S Census Bureau, Hispanics and Latino's are the fastest growing demographic in the country. How do they adjust to the U-S? how is the U-S adjusting to them? Himar Hernandez is a community development specialist with the ISU Extension in Ottumwa. He says one aspect of American culture he struggled with, was some of the unwritten rules. Hernandez says the U-S has become less like the "great melting pot" it was once labeled, and has allowed immigrants of all cultures to maintain their heritage, while still participating in the American way of life. Hernandez will be in Washington for a Learn at Lunch Monday April 20 at the ISU Extension Building. Contact the Washington Chamber of Commerce for more information.
