Whew! I was relieved to make it in to work on time this morning after the kids threw a couple challenges at me as we walked out the door. I was especially concerned because I knew we had some freezing rain last night and didn’t know what the drive was going to be like. To my relief, things weren’t that bad on the east side of town.
But we’re hearing the conditions are slowing down traffic on Interstate 90 west of Sioux Falls. Our Katie Janssen says her drive in was “scary”. Nicole Winters and photojournalist Kevin Kjergaard are talking with drivers near Salem today. What kind of conditions are you coming across? Help out your fellow drivers and share that information on our KELOLAND Facebook page.
How are you spending the Martin Luther King Junior holiday? We had some schools with late starts this morning, so not everyone has the day off. We’re looking for people observing the day. Then, tonight on KELOLAND News at 10, we have rare video of King from his visit to KELOLAND in the 1950′s. Ben Dunsmoor talks with an expert about the significance of his visit.
And if you’re unemployed or looking for a new job, Kohls is holding a job fair this week at the Downtown Holiday Inn in Sioux Falls. Jon Wilson is going to talk with applicants hoping to score one of the 150 new jobs at the new store on the east side of town.
