Chris Connolly of the Iowa Events Center joined us in the studio this morning just after 7:30 to give us the low-down on the dirt in Wells Fargo Arena. The Monster Jam is this weekend, followed by the World's Toughest Rodeo next weekend. The dirt for both events was trucked in yesterday...100 15-ton dump trucks full of dirt! The dirt will remain in the Arena thruu next weekend for the Rodeo and then has to be cleaned up immediately to get ready for the Iowa Energy basketball game on January 13th! If you're not into Monster Trucks...head over to the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center for the bridal show.
Just after the 8:30 news, Polk County Supervisor Bob Brownell and Mike McGonegle joined us in the studio. Bob authored a book about Mike McGonegle called "Our Fathers Day: A Baseball Card From The Plains". Check it out at Beaverdale Books, 2629 Beaver Avenue, as well as Amazon.com and Kindle. Information regarding book signings is available at www.robertbrownell.com.
