In The Moment ... June 7, 2017 Hour 1 Show 109

This week marks 45 years since Rapid City Flood of 1972. Don Barnett remembers the tragedy in detail, and he writes about it in his upcoming memoir. The book is called "Thorns and Roses: Rapid City in the 1970s." Now you can read an excerpt of the memoir in the summer issue of "South Dakota History." The issue is devoted to Barnett's recollections of heroism and loss, grief and rebuilding. Don Barnett joins us.

Hopefully, by now, you have your dandelions under control. It's time for our gardening and growing segment on In the Moment. With us today is Erik Helland. He's President and Owner of Landscape Garden Centers in Sioux Falls.
