The Koalas are coming, and it's all part of a global conversation effort that includes zoos across the world. With us today is Elizabeth Whealy. She's President and CEO of the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls. We talk about how to move a koala and the role of zoos in global conservation efforts.

After years of saving lives, property, and caring for his fellow fire fighters and their families, Sioux Falls Fire Rescue Chief Jim Sideras is getting ready to retire. Sideras served with Sioux Falls Fire Rescue for more than 30 years. He joins us now with a look at the days on the job he’d rather not remember and what’s ahead in his career.

For this week's Images of the Past segment, we take a look at memories from a war that span generations. The Old Courthouse Museum hosts an exhibit from World War I. With us today are two guests whose family connection to the Great War still resonates. We welcome Stan Christopherson from Sioux Falls. Mary McCune is with us from Covina California.
