The Exchange 07.22.22
This week on The Exchange, we prepare for RAGBRAI, which kicks off this weekend in Sgt. Bluff.
We also talk with SCCS Interim Sup. Rod Earlywine about a new construction trade learning site for Siouxland students at the Harry Hopkins site. And how girls are getting hands-on experience with trades like construction and plumbing through a new program at Western Iowa Tech Community College and Girls, Inc.
And we learn about the possible identities of several likely fur traders and their families who were buried alongside what is now I-29 just before the exit to Dakota Dunes. We talk with local history Eric Rosenbaum.
We also speak with the Iowa State John Doershuk about a recent dig the site of the Abby Gardener Sharp cabin at the Iowa Great Lakes.
We also talk to some college students who spent several weeks carefully digging down near the cabin for artifacts from the time Abby lived in the cabin.
