Iowa 2010: On the Thursday, May 8 edition of The Iowa Journal
May 6, 2008
(Johnston, Iowa) – Thursday’s episode of The Iowa Journal will look at the Iowa 2010 plan. The program airs Thursday, May 8 at 8:30 p.m. It will be rebroadcast Friday, May 9 at 9:30 p.m. on statewide IPTV-Plus and will also be available online at Iptv.org.
2010 is just two years away. What has become of the so-called 2010 plan? Are its objectives being met? This edition of The Iowa Journal will examine the state’s population trends and demographics. Guests include Jerry Kelley, mayor of Indianola, Iowa 2010 member, and Dr. William Withers, a professor at Wartburg and presenter of a program called, The View from 10,000 feet.
Leading into the 2010 conversation will be a profile of Young Professional groups in Iowa. Typically when 20- and 30-somethings get together it’s just to party, but not anymore. Today they are networking. Given the out migration of Iowa’s young professionals, the influence of those who remain is growing.
This week’s Out and About segment will profile the community of Red Oak.
