Sgt Peppers moment: The Mayor, the DC Trip, and subscribing to the videos on iTunes

New ideas, new ways to communicate. During one of my recent conversations with Fort Dodge Mayor Matt Bemrich we talked about "raising the bar", and today I believe we have a couple of great examples of doing just that.

First of all, below you'll find a video one-on-one conversation with Fort Dodge Mayor Matt Bemrich about his recent trip to Washington D.C., and he talks… Continue

Video: Ice jams on the Des Moines River worsen flood concerns for this week

The combination of recent rain and melting snow has brought many streams and rivers out of their banks across the central and northern Plains. Drier weather will grace these areas in the upcoming days, but flooding problems will remain.

The flooded areas across the Plains will not be entirely dry the next several days. A band of stubborn rain will continue to keep the eastern Dakotas wet through tonight. The rain is not heavy, but will… Continue

Video: How to replace a sump pump

Few household sounds get my attention like the constant running of the sump pump.

It gets my attention because I know if it's running continuously, we're getting a lot of rain, or like today, a lot of rain and snow melt.

Once it reaches the "constant operation stage", I make sure that I do regular status checks in the basement because of one true fact: If my sump pump fails, my finished basement… Continue

If disaster strikes, will your pets be safe?

Have you made plans for your pets in case of a natural disaster? If there's a fire in your home, will the fire department know there are pets inside? If you have to evacuate due to flood, power outage or other disaster, do you have a place for your pets to go?

Most of us would probably answer "no" to the above questions. Many of us, according to studies done by the Ohio State University, also say we would refuse to evacuate without our pets (28%… Continue
