Minnesota Extension Service - 4H

Each year dozens of Arts-In kids in 4H present daily shows throughout the entire State Fair. Sarah and Brett talk to some of them live from the AMPERS booth.

Many schools are adopting one-on-one technology initiatives.  There are pros and cons to this, and retired superintendent Craig Menozzi stopped by to tell us more. 

With the new Federal fiscal year about to start, Michael Goldberg has been trying to follow the news about this year’s budget, but he gets confused.   In this commentary, he tries to figure out what it means when the government raises the debt ceiling.  His essays, and those of other area writers, can be heard Sundays at 9 pm on Stay Human, words and music for spirit and courage.

Latest News from National Public Radio

For the first time, a female Marine has completed the grueling Infantry Officer Course.

The 13-week course is considered one of the toughest in the U.S. military, and one-third of the class dropped out before graduation.

David Litt was 24 years old and just a few years out of college when he landed a job writing speeches for President Barack Obama — an experience he calls "surreal and completely terrifying."

Though he was initially assigned the speeches no one else wanted to write, Litt eventually became a special assistant to the president and senior presidential speechwriter. His duties included writing jokes for the short comedy routine Obama performed annually at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinners.
