Small Towns, Balthazar, Young Artists Concert

Dustin Ingram, Director, Community & Economic Development Outreach for the Ames Chamber of Commerce, came in to talk to us about the March 3 school bond election and how it could affect a couple of small towns in Story County.  The discussion turned to ways small towns attract residents and anchor institutions.  Our second guest was Brandon Russom, describing how his first book “Balthazar Bunny and the Quest for Slicey, Slicey, Cut, Cut" was written with his pre-school students and published in England.  Continuing  with young people's creativity we spoke with MaryKay Polashek, and Kate McAlister about the Young Artists Concert to be performed March 1 at the Ames City Auditorium.
