From September 17 - 20, the annual Story! Festival in Story City, will once again celebrate the art of story-telling with nationally acclaimed story-tellers performing in Story City. Paul Wierson speaks with two of the featured artists, Jeff Doyle and Connie Regan-Blake. They describe their art and craft and offer a story or two on the air. Naturalist reporter Pat Schlarbaum describes the current nesting activities of our state bird and then, in our Tuning Into Agriculture segment, interviews Joe Kooiker, Story County's Roadside Biologist about how Story County plants prairies along the roadsides instead of mowing and spraying, with the Integrative Roadside Management program.
