Attorney General Jeff Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee at 2:30pm ET today, as the investigation continues into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Sessions is expected to take questions about his recusal from the Russia investigation, his own meetings with Russian officials, and what if anything he knew about a private Oval Office meeting between President Trump and fired FBI Director James Comey.

Sweethearts on the Prairie

May 1, 2017

In the barest of outlines, their getting together seems a marriage of convenience. If you stop at the Homestead Monument, you might just think the gravestone up on the hill marks something cold. Pioneers like Daniel Freeman were incapable of expressing their feelings, if they have feelings at all. Isn’t that right?

Besides, old Daniel had to be flat out lonely. The Civil War was finally over and he’s got a place of his own, a homestead, first one anywhere. What he needs is woman.

Jim March

World renowned harpsichordist Jory Vinikour will perform a recital this evening at 7:30 in the Levitt Gallery on the campus of Morningside College. We were fortunate to meet him in the gallery and even more so to broadcast an hour of conversation and music. During the interview, Jory discussed his love of the instrument, how he became a harpsichordist, and the story of the harpsichord we hear. We also discuss key figures of the High Baroque, and hear his performance of works by JS Bach, Rameau, Duphly, and Handel.

The Ruralists

The Ruralists are a band of guys who were looking for a band, something that can prove difficult when you live in a small town. They joined Mark Munger in the attic of the The Old Factory Coffee Shop in Orange City to talk about their genesis, the life and workings of a small town band, and how being in a band is more comfortable at this point in their lives.   

Clara Osowski

Clara Osowski, mezzo-soprano, will return to Sioux City this Sunday. Accompanied by pianist Jamie Schmidt, a Briar Cliff University alumna, Osowski will perform a program of art songs that includes premiers of works by Martha Helen Schmidt and Jared Hedges. 

White Buffalo of the Omaha Chiefs

Jan 2, 2017

According to an old Omaha history, the Omahas first saw a white man somewhere close to where today they would find Homer, Nebraska. Those strange white people carried with them “blankets, cloths, trinkets, and guns,” all of which made that first meeting historic—deathly-looking white folks were one thing, but guns—that was amazing.

It was the late 18th century, and that first sighting was reciprocal—it was the fur traders’ first sight of the Omahas as well. There are no reports of those trappers being equally awed.

When her owner lost her house, Roxy was left to find her own way in this world. If you know the directions to a loving home, you can find her at the Siouxland Humane Society.

Support for Welcome. Sit. Stay. comes from Priscilla E Forsyth, Attorney at Law, located in Sioux City and providing criminal defense and immigration law services to the Siouxland community.
