Iowa Arboretum and Small Town Groceries

Today's show started with a road trip to the Iowa Arboretum    where Mark Schneider director of the Arboretum described the work of cleaning up after the  Derecheo and how the downed trees had been creatively used .  Then we visited the newly opened Jewell Market  and spoke with Garren Zanker. We drove down to Town and Country Market in Slater, where we talked with  Larry Larson owner of the grocery store for thirty-six years.  [the link is attached to a YouTube video on this issue]. Paul Wierson ended the show by telling what it was like when Story City lost its full service grocery store.
