Keokuk, IA – Jason Parrott's guest is Keokuk Mayor Dave Gudgel. Gudgel is stepping down after eight years in office.
Gudgel says the city's greatest accomplishment during his time in office was the construction of the Rand Park Pavilion. He says the facility shows how the city is willing to come together on a positive project.
He says his biggest disappointment was the death of entrepreneur Ken Hendricks. Hendricks planned to build a wind turbine tower plant in Keokuk.
Kahoka, MO – About a dozen residents who want to see county operations remain in the historic courthouse held a candle-light vigil in Kahoka Tuesday night. The vigil got underway about a 1/2 hour before a meeting of the group working to build a new Clark County Courthouse.
Dozens of luminaries surrounded the courthouse. Participants also held the small, white bags as members of the committee arrived for the meeting.
