-- Des Moines Area Community College is relying heavily on the public to help name its new student activity and community recreation center on its Ankeny campus.
   The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1RfB1zF ) that after receiving suggestions from the public in April, the college is putting forth five names from which to choose for the new center.
   The suggested names are ARCH, or Ankeny Recreation & Community Health; ConneXion Aquatics & Recreation; COR Aquatics & Recreation, Trail Point Aquatics & Recreation and The Trail Aquatics & Recreation.
   College spokeswoman Susan Metheny says the name selected will be announced by midsummer.
   The activities complex will open in September, and the recreation center will open in February or March. The $38 million project includes an eight-lane competition swimming pool.
