This week on The Exchange, we remember Capt. Al Haynes, the pilot who saved more than 180 passengers aboard United Flight 232 30 years ago.  He died Sunday.

The turnoff to the Tanderup farm, Neligh, NE

We catch up with Neligh, Nebraska farmer Art Tanderup and discuss the likelihood of the TC Energy Pipeline being built after a court ruling prevented a move that would have delayed the project.  Tanderup gave some of the land destined for the pipeline to the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska for the planting of their sacred corn.

Also, how farmers and ethanol producers are suffering after a  move by the Trump administration to alter the deal for Renewable Fuels. 

And we look at how hemp could benefit Iowa and Nebraska farmers and rural economies.

Also, a preview of Art Splash and it's music, art and kids activities.
