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.
