Pandemic Rental Assistance ~ Tom Isern ~ Sleepy Hollow's "Footloose" ~ Bluegrass Goes Pink
Wednesday, July 21, 2021 - It’s estimated that up to 25,000 North Dakotans have fallen behind on rent during the pandemic, and there’s an effort to help them thanks to millions of dollars in federal aid -- but in North Dakota, most of that money is going unclaimed. Here to help spread the word is Carmel Froemke with the Community Action Partnership of North Dakota which is training staff members to handle urgent cases. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay titled “Fisherman’s Dream.” ~~~ The Sleepy Hollow Summer Theatre is in mid-season, having just finished up a production of Frozen, Jr. with a ten-night run that broke attendance records. And they’re following that up with Footloose, which opens Thursday. We visit with Footloose director Casey Paradies. ~~~ Bluegrass Goes Pink is back! Jill Wiese is here to tell us about this popular summer event, which is returning to Cross Ranch State Park.
