Bob Woodward

Coming up this week on The Exchange

We hear about the investments made by Western Iowa Tech Community college in training the future workers of Iowa.  A big part of the training is learning how to think critically and solve problems.

And we talk with journalist and author Bob Woodward about parallels between the days leading up to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon and the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Journalist and award winning author Bob Woodward spoke about the American presidency last night when he gave the annual Morningside College Waitt Lecture.  

Woodward and Washington Post colleague Carl Bernstein investigated President Richard Nixon’s actions against his Democratic opponents and Nixon’s downfall. 

Speaking with local journalists before the speech, Woodward talked about possible parallels in the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.  

The field is set for the Sioux City Council Election next month.

The candidates getting the most votes are Rhonda Capron and Julie Sc hoenherr (Shane-er).  

Capron, who is the incumbent, received almost half of the votes in the primary with 2,173 or 49%.

Schoenherr, the owner of SOHO on Historic 4th Street, came in second with 28% or 1,257 votes.

If you add up the votes of the final three candidates they received less than 1,000 votes; Michael O’Conner and Rosario Perez Jr. with 7% each and Michael Bayala with 6%.

The topic of cybersecurity took center stage at a Town Hall at the Hard Rock this morning.  

Senior Special Agent from the Omaha office of the FBI Ken Schmutz says cybercrime impact everyone from businesses to individuals.

“We want to work these investigations and learn how these adversaries get in and on the criminal side put them in jail and to further protect our infrastructure from these guys.”

Schmutz says 70-percent of hackers come from outside of the United States mainly from the countries of China, Russia and Iran.
