Outdoor activities, outdoor theater, and outdoor music of all kinds. It looks like summer is in full swing.

Coming up next on The Exchange, we hear from the three candidates to fill the remainders of a retiring member’s seat on the Sioux City School Board. They will present their proposals to the school board at its meeting next Monday.  One of them is former school board member John Meyers.

Also, we talk with the author of a new book that tells the story of an enslaved woman who ran away from President George Washington and was never caught.

And a look at the events you can expect at this year’s Rivercade Celebration.  That’s coming up, after this news.

Devon Cadwell's Favorite Food gets to preview tonight's performance of Nashville based singer songwriter Kira Hooks. Hooks plays a couple of her songs and talks about her favorite food (of course) and about growing up on four different continents.

When it killed, cholera did so with astonishing quickness. From the moment symptoms appeared --excessive diarrhea and vomiting, sunken eyes in a blueish face--till the moment those eyes closed forever was often a matter of hours.

Once the contagion was recognized, a steamer named St. Ange pulled over just south of here at the mouth of the Little Sioux River.

Two Roman Catholic priests, Black Robes, were aboard, holy men, Belgian born but dedicated to missions here. Both had notable records of selflessness, but only one would do good any longer.

Intro

Welcome to the Exchange on Siouxland Public Media, I’m Mary Hartnett.  It’s the Fourth of July and today we will dig into the history of the day, 

we take a look inside a founding father’s kitchen with an Iowa author.  

We will also get a rundown on Saturday in the Park coming up this weekend.

First though, we get an update on what’s going on with the Woodbury County Supervisor’s efforts to leave one provider group of mental health and disability services to join another.

You've probably never heard of Hermann the German and likely never stopped to greet him in New Ulm, Minnesota. Then again, you could have driven through town and not seen him at all. You've got to go south and up into the wooded hills.

But once you're there, he's a can't-miss. Hermann the German stands 32-feet tall--you heard that right. What's more, his statue stands 102 feet above town--way up there. Hermann the German ain't no "small wonder"--he's huge.
