by Mark Brown

Thanks to all of those last week who made our stay at the 75 th Annual Sioux Empire Fair should a memorable event. Memories will include the Pipestone Discovery Barn and the sow that gave birth to 13 piglets, our visit with Jim Woster, Tri-State Neighbor and Mayor Mike Huether on Ag Appreciation Day. The iterview centered around a story talking about how important area communities and farmers are to Sioux Falls as well as how Sioux Falls is important to the rural side and area communities.

We will for the first time be going to the Dakota Fest at Mitchell a week from Wednesday with the help of our friends at Plains Commerce Bank!

Today we start this hour with one of the concerns people have right now - the trade embargo involving Ag goods and material to Russia.
