I was a little late for this morning’s meeting, so sorry if this seems choppy:

- The City of Sioux Falls announced more department leadership changes this morning.  (This is why I was late to the meeting.)  Just last month, Mayor Mike Huether announced four new department heads, and there will be a news conference today about the latest announcement.  We’ll be at the conference and have the highlights for you tonight.

- JazzFest starts tonight, and we’ll tell you about parking and what organizers are expecting for attendance this year.  Are you planning to go?

She was well-known throughout the Sioux Falls community and the state as a vocalist for Acoustic Christmas, but 54-year-old Doreen Pospisil, who was never a smoker, died Monday morning from Stage 4 Lung Cancer.  Her story is tonight’s Eye on KELOLAND.  (Here’s a story we did in October 2008 after she was first diagnosed.)

- We are covering the United Way donation to the backpack program that feeds needy children in the city. (Here’s a story we did last year on the program.)  We’ll have the backpack distribution schedule online with this story as well.
