In The Moment … July 10, 2020 Show 856 Hour 2

The nationwide race to treat COVID-19 has research scientists and doctors working to treat extreme cases with convalescent plasma. Meanwhile, with more people sheltering in place or simply not going out as much, regular blood donations have dropped.  Today we're talking about a community partnership seeking to meet the critical need for blood donations in Rapid City.

In The Moment … July 10, 2020 Show 856 Hour 1

Twenty-two regional experts take on the challenge of defining and exploring the "Interior Borderlands" in a new book by the same title. Where does the Midwest fade and the Great Plains begin? Is the West a geographic distinction or a cultural one? How does where we live define who we are? The book was honored this month at the Midwest Book Awards as one of the region's best. Today we welcome the book's editor and publisher, Jon Lauck and Harry Thompson.

How are masks affecting the everyday conversation for state government as well as public universities? Plus, what did the state get out of the fireworks display at Mount Rushmore?

Travel South Dakota

The Tourism Department said Thursday that the state is enjoying a big payoff from the July 3 fireworks and presidential speech at Mount Rushmore, but the department acknowledged there was a cost to taxpayers. 

In a news release, the department estimated it will spend $1.5 million on the event by the time all of the bills are added up. That includes the fireworks display, transportation, security and other items, the department said. 

South Dakota Board of Regents

None of South Dakota’s public universities are planning to require masks in the fall semester. Instead, they’re strongly encouraging masks by setting an example through social media and other platforms.
