Elections and Upcoming Events

Our first order of business was announcing some of the results of yesterday's election. Barb Pedersen, committee chairperson of the voter services committee of the Ames and Story County League of Women Voters, was on hand to discuss the ways KHOI could make voter information --our candidate interviews and the local forums recorded by our volunteers, available to the public, both on broadcasts and through our website. Mara Spooner of the Fair Trade Store Worldly Goods, discussed their business model and the Benefit Events where part of the sales receipts will be donated to local organizations. We ended the show with two remarkable events coming up in the next few days.  Deborah Marquart, editor of the children's book The Moo Cow Came Traveling , described the book launch that will be held this Sunday, November 8, 2-3 p.m. at the Ames Public Library with the book illustrator, Dorothia Rohner and an appearance with author Mark Muholland ZOOMING in from Ireland.  And up in Briggs Woods by Webster City, Maureen Seamonds tells us of the annual harvest dinner for Legacy Learning with Kelly Boone leading the fun on Monday evening from 5:30 p.m. on Monday, November 9. Listen to this Local Talk to find all about it!
