We begin the hour with an update on the Paul Dean Jensen case. Jensen spent 20 years in prison, serving life without parole for a murder he committed in 1996 at the age of 14. In June, a judge reconsidered that penalty and imposed a 200 year sentence. Now Jensen is appealing the second sentence. SDPB’s Victoria Wicks has the update.

SDSU Extension Climate Field Specialist Laura Edwards talks about warmer than average weather predictions for this summer that may affect the growing season for South Dakota farmers and producers. We’ll talk about El Nino, the possibility of drought, and the science of predicting specific weather patterns in a shifting climate.
