Wednesday, December 15, 2021 – The year 2020 was unlike any other in America, and among the kids who suffered were the student-athletes who had to give up a year of competition in high school and college. Forum Communications sports writer Jeff Kolpack has been covering their stories and he realized the theme deserved to be documented as a book. The result is COVID Kids. He joins us to discuss how the pandemic affected kids, parents and coaches. More than a medical problem, the pandemic has also been a lifestyle issue. ~~~ The Community Violence Intervention Center recently released a special publication about the work being done in greater Grand Forks to end interpersonal violence. The book, “Two-Generation Guardians,” features community leaders and partners who have contributed to the effort. Joining us is the book’s author, CVIC president and CEO Coiya Tompkins.
