As a recent Augustana College graduate, I am happy to report that the Augustana students who were stuck in Egypt the last few days landed around 9:20 p.m. tonight.

KELOLAND News has been following the journey from the beginning. We started with a story before they left for the month-long band tour. Check out new stories about the recent protests,  cancelled flights, lack of email and phone communication, switching hotels, etc. Hailey Higgins talked with an Egyptian-American who was involved in Facebook and Twitter conversations leading up to the protests. The Sioux Falls man says getting a new president is the answer to Egypt’s problems. You will hear from him on KELOLAND News at 10 tonight. Also, Ben Dunsmoor will be catching the Augustana students for an interview as they exit the plane.

Tonight’s ‘Eye on KELOLAND’ by Katie Janssen fills us in on a graduation coach in Nobles County whose whole job is to make sure students graduate on time. Angela Kennecke put together an interesting ‘Your Money Matters’ about a Sioux Falls man who moved from Las Vegas because he thought the job market is better here.

Please be careful if you are “out and about.” As always, check the user submitted Closeline for details on event closings and the recent weather update.
