That and more on the Exchange, Wednesday at noon on Siouxland Public Media.

Animal Song of The Week:

This week, let’s continue discussing the size and scale of things in astronomy.  Our Solar System has one Sun, 8 planets, 5 dwarf planets, hundreds of natural satellites, thousands of comets, and hundreds of thousands of minor planets.  It has a basic shape of disc and the Sun at the center.  For this discussion, we are just going to focus on the Sun and the planets.

Bill. I met him in early spring of 1981 when I was in law school. I’d come to Sioux City once in a while, looking for something I didn’t think I could find in small-town South Dakota.

This is Kelsey Patterson with the Sioux City Public Library and you’re listening to Check It Out.

It took me 31 years of Iowa living to take my first steps on real native prairie, the kind my great-grandparents must have set upon when they arrived in northwest Iowa in the 1880s. Thirty-one years. Seems like a lifetime.

But then, real native prairie goes at a premium in this corner of the state. You can stumble on a few sloped patches of original grasses along the bluffs of the Big Sioux River, but for decades already the land has been drawn-and-quartered by the endless row crops of a gigantic garden.

Brad Lepper of Stone Bru is the guest. We had planned to have Brad come out in November to talk about the new store at the Dunes, then Food for Thought got a new host (Adrian) and then that new host started working for Stone Bru. Steve Smith steps into the guest host chair for this week. Along the way we find that Stone Bru is opening a new Singing Hills Location! We also get deep into coffee talk, and espresso talk, and latte art we get a lot covered.
