KHOI celebrates the first annual Harrison Barnes Day with a special visit from the honoree to our studios! We start the hour with a phenology from Pat Schlarbaum on the Red Admiral butterfly, having a banner year this summer. Then, host Greta Anderson speaks with local Democrat Beth Wessel Kroeschell of Ames and Republican Dave Deyoe of Nevada, both in the Iowa House of Representatives, about Branstad's July 2 veto of $56 million in education spending and questions raised by the comments of one Republican on the Senate Education Committee. Last but certainly not least, KHOI personalities Viveca Dillard and Merl Crabb ask Harrison Barnes all the right questions about growing up in Ames, dunking on LeBron James in Game 5 of the NBA championship series, and his latest hiphop listens. Harrison responds like the champion he is!
