Old School, New School

Ten-year-old correspondent Wyatt Merceal-McBroom (Happy Birthday, Wyatt!)... steals the show as he reviews the new Edwards School, about halfway through the show. Wyatt attended the old Edwards and will attend the new Edwards school this year as a 5th-grader. Before that, Fern Kupfer reads her column about the disposition of the old Middle School, and the fiasco that followed. Bekka Brown describes the end of a VISTA project at Sawyer and Mitchell Schools; the gardens there are being turned over to community and school volunteers while VISTA, and Bekka, one of the garden coordinators, move on to other things. The hour started with Main Street Cultural District events coordinator Emily Miller previewing "Foodies and Brew", an August 15 event for adults in downtown Ames, and describing the organization's--and the city's--new life downtown. And the hour ends with Viveca Dillard describing an encouraging development for women in the NBA and a discouraging development for women in the NFL.
