After Dennis Hart's news, we discussed an upcoming event at the APL by Save the Boundary Waters, a campaign to protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) and its watershed from sulfide-ore mining. Mary Richards and Fritz Franzen came in to tell us about what BWCA means to them. Next we heard from Matthew Goodman, owner of Flying Burrito, a business that been a staple in Camputown since 2003. His story as ISU student, father, entrepreneur, city councilman, and progressive activist gave us insights into this pivotal time in Ames History.
