Today's show was devoted to news. KHOI civic reporter Dennis Hart was on hand to tell us the secret of how he can preview leading articles from the Story City Herald, Nevada Journal, Tri-County Times, and Boone News Republican before they appear in print. Story County outreach coordinator Leanne Harter came over from Nevada to give us a scoop on upcoming events sponsored by our Story County Government. Jim Hennessey, Administrator of the Child Advocacy Board described the work of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and invited the public to its 25th Anniversary Celebration at the Gateway Center in Ames at 4:30 PM, Thursday, June 14. Ames City Council Members Bronwynn Beatty-Hansen and David Martin gave us a recap of the Tuesday night Ames City Council Meeting including two highly controversial issues -- exemptions to the rental cap ordinance and re-zoning of Lincoln Way. Finally, KHOI nature reporter Pat Schlarbaum interviewed Bob Watson about the Lawsuit Against the DNR for its failure to protect air quality from the effect of CAFO hog manure collection.
