Today's headlines:

  • the Mississippi River should reach flood stage in the Quad Cities this weekend,
  • the Iowa legislature fights over university funding,
  • and racist flyers next appear in Moline.

It should be cloudy today with a 30 % chance of rain, and a high near 80.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
