On Wednesday, February 26, Siouxland Public Media hosted a live edition of the  Exchange at the Sioux City Public Library.  The topic was the Woodbury County jail bond referendum, set for Tuesday, March 3.

County residents will decide whether to a 50.3 million dollar bond to pay for a new jail.  County leaders and those who work in the jail say it is too crowded and has numerous plumbing, heating and cooling problems.

It was built to hold 80 inmates and now it has 230 inmates. 

One sister risks it all to prove that her sister is not insane by sneaking into the infamous Goldengrove Asylum. But she realizes that many of the women in the asylum aren't acutally insane but are merely inconvenient.  As her search for the truth continues, it threatens to unearth some secrets that some very powerful people would rather keep hidden. 

Support for Check It Out comes from Avery Brothers.
