Van & onnie "Eat Other People's Meals" on Tuesdays....today's meal was breakfast courtesy of the Polk County Jail. Jana Aben, Public Information Officer for the Polk County Sheriff's Office joined us in the studio this morning with breakfast. We had Cheerios, bread with either jelly or peanut butter, orange juice and milk...just what the inmates at the Polk County Jail were having this morning. Jana couldn't resist, however, stopping by the bakery and picking us up some donuts! Breakfast was served on the serving trays used at the jail along with a "spork" the utensil that's used in the jail (half spoon/half fork). Of course Van had to slurp the leftover miilk from his Cheerios out of the tray!
Jerry Luedtke of the Navy, joined us in the studio just after the 8:30 news. The United Submarine Veterans of Iowa would like you to join them on the SE side of the State Capital grounds on Saturday, June 8th, 11AM for the Sixth Annual Tolling the Boats (to remember our fellow Submariner comrades who have given their lives while serving our country.
