I hope you had a chance to stop by the WHO Radio studio this morning and pick up your free Powerball play for tonight's drawing...thee estimated jackpot for tonight's drawing is $425 Million! Don't forget the little people if you win!
Julie DenHerder and Rhonda Christensen joined us in the studio this morning just after the 6:30 news. They have organized a Military Tribute Concert at the Iowa State Fair on Monday, August 12th. If you sing or are in a group or choir that sings, or if you play a musical instrument, they need you! So far they have participants from 15 counties...they would like many more counties represented in this military tribute! There is a practice for anyone that wants to be involved on Sunday, August 11th, 12:30PM at Grandview University. For more information, go to www.militarytributeconcert.org. The concert is Monday at the Susan Knapp Ampitheater at noon.

See you tomorrow at the Iowa State Fair. Do not be looking for a blog during the fair as I will probably not have the time or the access to a computer at the fair to do a blog. Sorry.
Have a great day and hopefully we'll see you at the Iowa State Fair!
