One of the top democratic candidates for president is in Sioux City this afternoon.

A town hall started an hour ago with California Senator Kamala Harris.

California Sen. Kamala Harris make her case to become the next U.S. president in central Iowa yesterday.

Harris slammed the current administration’s trade policy, noting its impact on Iowa farmers. She said China does need to be held accountable for stealing trade secrets and intellectual property. But the way to do that is to strengthen the U.S. economy and support American workers, including farmers.

Coming up on The Exchange,

Disaster aid in the wake of March floods has finally been passed by Congress, but Siouxlanders continue to have questions about what do with the damage to homes and property.  And Farmers are still struggling with the wet weather, trying to get their crops in the field.

And last week, Siouxlanders said goodbye to one of it’s oldest elementary school buildings, as Hunt school will be torn down and rebuilt. 

Saturday in the Park looms large in Siouxland - we get out the extra sheets for friends and family who are returning for the weekend, dream up our ideal headliners, and debate past year’s lineups. With acts like Trombone Shorty and Joss Stone, not to mention Brother Ali and Sharkweek on the Abe Stage, this year’s lineup is going to be a big part of those future arguments. We caught up with event founder and organizer Dave Bernstein at the bandshell for a rundown of what’s to come.

Abe Stage Songwriter Spotlight - DAD

Jun 27, 2017

Protige (Mark Koenigs) and Eboli (Jason Reinert) worked together as a DJ team for ten years before they became the DAD duo. Stemming from the want to make hip hop their full-time gig, they decided to give their DAD idea a shot and as they say, the rest is history.

"We usually write separately so when we get together with our DAD time that we have, we can record," explains Protige.

You can see them on the Abe Stage at Saturday in the Park this weekend.
