Who Was, Who Is Abbie Sawyer?

Both questions are answered in this show, along with Where Is Abbie Sawyer Elementary School? Kathy Hanson of Ames Community School District talks about "Camp Sawyer" (last year's make-do encampment at old Edwards), the new school's ribbon cutting August 18, and "Sawyer Speaks," a spoken word learning program being launched at the school this year.

We then hear from Abbie Sawyer, of Abbie and the Sawyers, the band performing at Roosevelt Summer Sundays concert series. KHOI will be broadcasting this concert on August 10 as part of its Summer Sessions series.

Iowa Home Consulting's Matt Bradner describes his work gathering furniture for the Rummage Rampage, a city-wide attempt to reduce the waste left in the wake of the annual August 1 apartment turnover. Shop Saturday through Monday for gently used items.

Kay Puttock begins the show with an interview of Linda Hanson, director of Primary Health Care in Ames.
