A bill that would have made it more challenging to create new public land in Iowa will not move on to a committee hearing. The bill would have also ended the state’s conservation tax credit. Joe Jayjack of the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation testified at the hearing and said hundreds of people showed up at the capital yesterday to show their support for land conservation. More on this subject in the audio above.

Ambi               Walking through grass (Becca: Let’s head that way. Follow the yellow grass.)


One Book One Siouxland will kick off the 2016 season at the Orpheum Theatre this Thursday. Built in 1927, the venue couldn't be more perfect for a party which will send everybody off reading One Summer, America 1927. The novel, written by Iowa native Bill Bryson, rebuilds vivid events from history, taking the reader into the time when Babe Ruth clobbered 60 homers in a season and Charles Lindbergh proved the Atlantic Ocean surmountable.
