Things should be back to normal after a holiday weekend. There are more faces in the newsroom, that’s for sure.
– We talked about more troopers on the highways over the holiday and are waiting on a final report on what their increased presence meant in terms of citations, etc. On a related note, we’re curious whether the new-colored patrol cars mean they’re catching more speeders by surprise. What do you think?
– There was quite a bit of discussion regarding a new study shows that students do better in certain areas when school starts a later in the morning. We’re wondering if Sioux Falls middle schools have noticed this since they pushed back their start time for this year.
– A little bit on mosquitos and mosquito bites in today’s HealthBeat. How do you treat mosquito bites? Have you heard any mosquito myths? Recent flooding seems to have made this area a haven for these guys to hang out. Especially after a weekend of camping or spending time outside, a lot of you have probably been itching the past few days.
