Larry Campbell's fascination with the Missouri River inspired a journey from the river's source to the place where it merges with the Mississippi. Along the way, he found a lot more than a river. His book is called "Rollin Down the River." He speaks at Rotary in Yankton tomorrow at noon. But first he joins us on In the Moment.

Some South Dakota cities and towns may be able to use federal grant money to tear down dilapidated and abandoned buildings.  The state is giving one million dollars to the new Bulldoze, Build, and Beautify program.  SDPB's Andrew Bork explains what this program hopes to accomplish.
