South Sudanese Immigrants, Safari, and Erickson Public Library

For our Story County Report today we heard from Amelia Schoeneman of the Story County Planning and Development Department describing the work of her department and giving us the monthly report of events in Story County.  In our next segment, South Sudanese Immigrants Paul Lueth, Dot Bol, and Ashok Doud, told their stories of growing up in America, sustaining family members both in the US and in Africa.  The decision to join with their cousin, Awein Majak to open Safari, a South Sudanese restaurant on South Duff in Ames, is such a family venture. Finally, Mr.Z (aka. Zack Stier) Children's Librarian at Boone's Ericson Public Library, came in to tell us about the activities he co-ordinates.  Candy Noelck came along to tell us what's coming up there for with adult and teen programs in the Boone Library.
