Wakefield and Pomeroy on Health Insurance ~ "Think Outside" ~ Northwoods Baseball

Tuesday, July 17 – Insurance can be tricky to navigate. Mary Wakefield is the former acting deputy secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Earl Pomeroy is a former North Dakota insurance commissioner and US Congressman. They are raising awareness about how preexisting conditions can impact North Dakotans. They spoke with Prairie Public's Todd McDonald. ~~~ Paul and Lydia Zondo grew up in Liberia during the First Liberian Civil War. They recently visited the StoryCorps mobile recording studio in Bismarck to share their story. ~~~ Think Outside is a program of Humanities North Dakota. Created by philosopher and North Dakota native Tayo Basquiat, the program seeks to connect people with both ideas and the beauty of our natural landscape. This weekend the plan was to camp and kayak along the Missouri River, but high water has diverted the outing to Harmon Lake. ~~~ The Northwoods Baseball League features college talent from around the country, many of whom have hopes of playing in Major League Baseball. The league includes the Bismarck Larks, and here to tell us about the league is general manager John Bollinger.
