The show consisted of a discussion with Cornelia Flora, Charles F. Curtis Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University, about the way she uses the concept of "Community Capitals" in her book Rural Communities: Legacy and Change and in the accompanying video course. We drew on Sarah Thompson, executive director of Hamilton County Economic Development and Hamilton Hometowns, who supervises the Main Street Program in Hamilton County; and Dick Steffen, Railroad author, teacher and local historian, for insights into the history and development of Ellsworth and Jewell. Dick will also be a speaker at the James H. Andrew Museum at the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad.
