State and Municipal Banks ~ Tom Isern ~ Dr. Alli Svobodny ~ Inmate Behavioral Health

Tuesday, November 26, 2019 – The State Bank of North Dakota has been around for a hundred years. Now the idea seems to be catching on in other states. We discuss the growing interest with Walt McRee, senior advisor and chair/president Emeritus of the Public Banking Institute, which is dedicated to exploring and disseminating information on publicly-owned banks and facilitating their implementation. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay, “The Rearview Mirror.” ~~~ Naturopathic doctor Alli Svobodny visits with Ashley Thornberg about gluten intolerance. ~~~ Prisons and jails across the country face a challenge in dealing with behavioral health issues. From a recent Prairie Pulse television show, host John Harris visits with Julie Savat, the Clay County Jail administrator, about “The River Project,” an effort to better address such problems.
