Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jack Hatch has suspended television advertising in two major Iowa media markets, Sioux City and the Quad Cities, at least for now. The campaign says they’re rethinking their media buys based on how many voters have requested absentee ballots.
Something happened Wednesday morning that many people thought would not. One of three eggs in an eagle's nest near the Decorah Fish Hatchery is no longer an egg, but an eaglet. The egg hatched in spite of brutal weather conditions including ten inches of snow and 20 degree below zero temperatures. No one is happier about the day's events than Bob Anderson who installed a web cam in the nest 6 years ago as part of the Raptor Resource Project. He talks with Iowa Public Radio's Pat Blank.
