What have we learned from looking at schools that have been able to educate ALL their students well? Do they really have practices that work with those 'hard to reach students?' Ray and Larry share what they have learned from high-performing schools from around the country.


How do we create a new education system when we cannot envision it? How can we be innovative and develop new programs and services when faced with policy restrictions, extensive regulations and severe budget constraints? Where does innovation begin? These are just a few of the dilemmas we face in education. Ray shares 5 new leadership lessons.


For many students, their experience of high school is one of anonymity. For many high school educators, their professional community lacks shared purpose and identity, mutual respect, trust, and collaboration. We can't hope to improve student achievement, decrease disciplinary problems, or increase retention unless we can improve the quality of relationships in our high schools. The goal of a Smart and Good High School is to help all stakeholders (faculty and staff, students, parents and the wider community) to develop an Ethical Learning Community where all are supported and challenged to do their best work (performance character) and be their best ethical self (moral character). Learn foundational strategies from a national research report for making character and culture a pathway to “rigor, relevance and relationships.”


This presentation describes the dynamic nature of student aspirations and discusses eight conditions in schools that affect aspirations. Dr. Russell Quaglia shares the conditions that need to be in place so that all students, regardless of age or background, can reach their fullest potential. His findings have implications for how schools are organized, the role of educators, and how we access students. The presentation also describes how student aspirations can be used proactively in initiatives designed to increase academic standards and in the overall development of healthy, productive citizens.


Wade and Heather Wintermeyer are from Jamestown, North Dakota, where Wade is a cook, and Heather is a hostess at the local Perkins Restaurant. They have been married for three years. At the National Special Olympics, Heather, 27, will compete in volleyball.

Since April, she has been playing on a team and she also practices with the local high school squad. To help sharpen her game, Heather’s coaches have been working with her on setting, bumping, spiking, and blocking. She runs in her spare time, and always tries to eat healthy. Heather also has competed in figure skating, traveling to Japan for an international event. She has two brothers and two sisters. She loves to email her friends, play as many sports as possible, and she also collects pins. At the National Games, Heather is looking forward to seeing old friends she’s met at the World Games, and also making some new ones. She wants to make first-time participants feel welcome and encourage them to continue participating in athletics. For her team, she looks forward to winning gold, but says they’re all stars because they’ve had the chance to participate.

An avid biker, when Heather was young doctors told her that she might never ride a bike. “I guess I showed them,” she says. Heather says she doesn’t let her handicap stand in her way. She learned how to drive a car, manage her own home and balance her checkbook. “The things that other people do in life,” she says. Her dream is to talk to athletes in different states about participating in Special Olympics. She feels Special Olympics is like a family. “It’s ok if you don’t get the ball over the net or if you can’t run fast. What is important is that you try your best and become the best you can be.” She would like to go to college where she’d study Special Education. Eventually Heather would like to coach a Special Olympics team.

Wade, who is 30 years old, will compete in basketball at the National Games. He has been training twice a week for the last four months, concentrating on shooting, dribbling and free throws. Wade also runs relays and throws the shot put. He hopes his team does its best at the Nationals and that they all have fun. When he’s not competing at the games, Wade will be cheering on all the other athletes. At home he likes to fish, ride his bike and play videogames. His favorite person is Jim Kleinsasser, a Minnesota football player who, once a year, attends a local fund raising dinner where he talks about football and helps the group raise money to keep its program going. Wade especially likes it when Jim tells them that they can do anything they want if they put their minds to it. Wade’s dream is to one day play professional basketball, or to go to college and become a coach.

Matt Jacobson, as profiled by Jennifer Matoney of South Dakota Public Broadcasting.

Matt Jacobson, 20, is a swimmer from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He is a student at Community Campus and works at Triple Play Sports Cards. Matt will be swimming at The National Games, but also has competed in power lifting and shot put. He has been training for the last eight months, one-on-one three times a week for 45 minutes a day, in addition to group practice with other Special Olympians. His goal at Ames is to swim his hardest, record his best time, and to have fun. Matt says his heroes are his brothers, Andy and Mike, who will be competing at the games in Unified Softball. Matt’s dream is to work at a fitness center.

Merle Cooney, as profiled by Frederica Freyberg of Wisconsin Public Television.

Merle Cooney has been competing in Special Olympics in the state of Wisconsin since he was 9. The 27-year-old softball player from Stevens Point has recently qualified for Team Wisconsin. He is one of only 15 athletes who were chosen from the 100 that tried out. Team Wisconsin will be competing for the gold medal at this summer’s 2006 Special Olympics USA National Games in Ames, Iowa. Merle is grill chef at a local restaurant. Every other year, he buys himself a new car, and has even saved enough to buy his own house. And when he’s not playing softball, he’s working out in the gym. Merle has won three medals for weight lifting. Merle says his inspiration for playing baseball came inadvertently from his high school baseball coach. “He said I’d have to sit on the bench ‘cause he liked to win.”

Kip and Tyson Neubauer, as profiled by Judy Blank of Iowa Public Television.

For nearly three decades the Neubauer family has participated in Special Olympics. Brothers, Kip, 36, and Tyson, 26, began competing as soon as they each turned eight-years-old. Their parents, Bonnie and Herb, have volunteered as coaches and even started a Special Olympics program for disabled people in their home town area of Clear Creek Amana, Iowa.

Comfortable in the spotlight, Kip and Tyson have served as poster boys for the Kansas City Royals and have met famous sports figures and political leaders. Adding to their roster of accomplishments the brothers competed in Motor Activities Training Program events at the national games.

THE WAR, a seven-part series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history — a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America — and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives.

Throughout the series, the indelible experience of combat is brought vividly to life as veterans describe what it was like to fight and kill and see men die at places like Monte Cassino and Anzio and Omaha Beach; the Hürtgen Forest and the Vosges Mountains and the Ardennes; and on the other side of the world at Guadalcanal and Tarawa and Saipan; Peleliu and the Philippine Sea and Okinawa. In all of the battle scenes, dramatic historical footage and photographs are combined with extraordinarily realistic sound effects to give the film a terrifying, visceral immediacy.

UPDATE: At about 8:30 pm on Tuesday, June 10th, 2008, the water behind the spillway spilled over. This will add to the already major flooding in Iowa City.

A video of the Iowa City Spillway on Sunday, June 8th, 2008. The water was very high and only 1-2 feet from spilling over, which would cause major flooding in Iowa City. It's expected to spill over on Tuesday, June 10th, 2008. The spillway only has spilled over once before, and that was in the Flood of 1993, which occured all over the midwest. The flood was said to be "the 100 year flood", but this year is expected to be worse for Iowa City than 1993. In the video, you can see how high the water was in 1993 at 0:21. The water went up to the blue squiggly line on the sign. At the end, you can see some severe weather moving in to the north.

Two Iowa Boy Scouts, interviewed by NBC's Today Show, discuss what happed when a tornado came through their camp killing four people and injuring more than 50.

One of the scouts, only 13, explains how it would have been worse had the storm came through any other populated area rather than their camp - because, "we were prepared for this." The scout was referring to the extensive first aid training each scout is taught and all the supplies available which probably saved many lives that day.

The Boy Scout Motto is Be Prepared, and it appears that is exactly what these scouts were when disaster struck. The Boy Scouts of America is one of the few organizations which teach real life lessons and values. (via georgiahunter4333 on YouTube)

When it comes to weaning a fuel hungry nation off of foreign oil the recent buzz has centered on ethanol. Much has been said about the pros and cons of the predominately corn-based fuel with any number of experts casting doubt on its performance. However, one proving ground where these fears are being laid to rest is the speedway. High performance engines are put to the test every weekend somewhere across the U.S. -- many relying on tricky mixtures of this or that petroleum distillate. But one sector of auto racing has committed to "homegrown" fuels in its dash for cash. John Nichols explains how an aggressive marketing campaign is helping ethanol race into the fast lane.


In the Midwest, heavy rain and rising floodwaters swept through small towns and farm fields in the most extensive devastation since the “500-year floods” of 1993.


Heavy rains and flooding in key Midwestern states are drowning hopes of planting and reducing 2008 crop production.

Sen. Barack Obama discusses the Iraq War, and what he would do to restore optimism in the U.S.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.

Yepsen: Senator, I want to back up and take a broader look at some things. The dollar is at a record low against the euro. The Iraq war continues. The stock market is falling. We don't know what to do about Iran, and oil is approaching $100 a barrel. Americans are in a pretty down mood. What would you do as president to restore some optimism in this country?

Obama: Well, I think, step one, we have to bring this war in Iraq to a close. I think it has been an enormous drain, obviously, on the young men and women who are serving, in the wounds and the deaths that have been suffered there. But we're also spending $10- to $12 billion a month. That is putting an enormous strain on our fiscal situation here at home. It prevents us from reinvesting in infrastructure.

And it has really hurt our reputation around the world. So we can get our combat troops out in about sixteen months, at the pace of one to two brigades a month. If we do that, I think we can then set a new tone of leadership around the world, saying we want to work with the world on critical issues like nuclear proliferation, but we're also going to work to improve public health in places like sub-Saharan Africa, build schools in the Middle East.

That whole tone of leadership around the world will not only, I think, help our foreign policy, it will help our economy. One of the reasons that we've got oil at close to $100 a barrel is because of the saber-rattling that the Bush administration has been engaging in with respect to Iran. About a third of that cost is really the spot market saying there may be war. And if we can lower the temperature, lower the rhetoric that can also improve our economy.

And if we have a new program of reinvesting in the American worker and saying to people in America, you count, Washington's thinking about you, we are going to invest in your education, we're going to invest in broadband lines, those kinds of -- that sense of optimism and movement where we're not just passively watching as these things happen to us, but instead we're acting forcefully to meet a future that right now is uncertain, I think that's the kind of leadership we need from Washington.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about the security situation in Afghanistan.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Borg: As you phase down, as you said, that war in Iraq, are you going to have to phase up Afghanistan?

Obama: I think that we are going to have to send a couple of additional brigades into Afghanistan to help shore up what has been a declining security situation in Afghanistan. We also, though, have to ramp up the nonmilitary efforts of reconstruction in Afghanistan.

You know, you talk to generals who are familiar with what's happening in Afghanistan. They say we need agricultural specialists as much as we need an additional platoon because we've got to teach farmers to grow things other than heroin poppy. We've got to give them roads and infrastructure that allows them to develop economically. That's the kind of investment that we have to make if we're going to stabilize Afghanistan.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about whether being a minority will be a problem referring to campaigning in Iowa. (Prior to the Iowa 2008 Caucus.)

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Glover: Senator, you are an African American candidate for President running in a state with a very, very tiny African American population. Can you get a fair hearing here? Are you getting a fair hearing here?

Obama: I am getting a fair hearing and I will get a fair hearing and I think we're gonna win this place, because you have people who are less concerned about race and much more concerned about is this somebody who is really going to be fighting for me, is this somebody who is going to make sure that my life is a little bit better. I just had a roundtable discussion with a group of women. You listen to their stories -- you've got a single mother who is trying to go to school at the same time as she's working, just like my mother did. She can't even think about saving. She's not getting any help when it comes to day care because she works a little too many hours to get -- to get a subsidy. Stories like that exist all across Iowa. And if people feel that I can deliver for them, then I think we're going to do well. If they feel that, you know, I can make their lives a little bit better, the last thing they're going to be thinking about is my race.

Glover: You think the state has moved beyond that?

Obama: What's that?

Glover: You think the state has moved beyond that.

Obama: I do. Look, there's no doubt that race is always a factor in American society. There's no denying that. But I think we've made enormous progress in a generation, certainly since I was born in the early '60s, and I think that people right now are much more concerned with who's going to look out for them, who's going to fight for them, who's going to bring about the kind of change that's needed in Washington.

Yepsen: So if you don't do well in the caucuses, we're not going to hear David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs and all your spinners telling us, well, Barack Obama didn't do well in Iowa because it's a lily white state? I just want to lay that down.

Obama: Look, we have invested in Iowa. I have been campaigning actively in Iowa. We expect to do well in Iowa.

Yepsen: What do you say, Senator, to those Democrats who very quietly, because it's not easy to talk about race in politics, who say we're not sure Barack Obama can win because a lot of voters aren't ready to vote for a black man in America?

Obama: You know, I heard this when I was running for the U.S. Senate. Illinois is 12 percent African American. It's not a majority African American state or even a substantial plurality African American state. And people said there's no way that folks down state are going to vote for you. And down-state Illinois is pretty similar to Iowa culturally and demographically. We ended up winning that primary by 20 points. We won the white vote. We won the rural vote. We won the farmer vote. There wasn't a vote we didn't win against strong candidates, one who spent $30 million, another who was the sitting state comptroller and was a very popular elected official, and we beat them. So I've heard this before. I think it gives the voters too little credit, and we're confident that we're going to be able to do well.


Sen. Barack Obama says he's not 'sinless' in fund-raising, but is working on ethics reforms. This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: You complain about money in politics a lot but yet -- and during your career you've taken money from people connected with various special interest groups. Why are you better on money issues than any of your opponents?

Obama: I've consistently said, David, that, you know, I'm not sinless in this process. You know, if you're in politics, particularly national politics, you've had to raise money. But if you look at my track record, not only do I not take federal registered lobbyist money and PAC money in this campaign, but I have consistently fought for and successfully achieved reforms in how we -- how we deal with money in politics.

The first piece of legislation -- major piece of legislation that I passed in the Illinois Senate was a campaign ethics reform bill, the first in 25 years. And that was resisted not just by Republicans but by some of my own Democratic leaders.

So I've got a track record of actually passing legislation that curbs the influence of money in politics, and that's simply not true for some of the other major candidates on the Democratic side.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about the national debt

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: One of the things I forgot to mention in this little litany is Chinese officials are saying we might not want to be buying any more American debt. How are you going to pay for this? The national debt is at nine trillion dollars now and headed north. How are you going to pay for all these things you want to do?

Obama: Well, $10- to $12 billion per month, $196 billion just for next year's request alone, that's a big chunk of change. So if we can phase down the war in Iraq, that's going to start helping us on the money front. I do think that we've got to create a more efficient Washington. I have called for more transparency and accountability.

And when it comes to things like earmarks, we have to prioritize how we're spending money in Washington. And one of the things that I think is important for Democrats to communicate is, just because I'm a progressive and I believe in early childhood education spending and I believe in after-school spending and I believe in a lot of these programs, doesn't mean I don't think there's waste in government.

I just think we're spending it in the wrong places. And we've got to go after no big contracts to Halliburton. We've got to close corporate loopholes where you've got companies in the -- you've got a building in the Cayman Islands where 12,000 companies supposedly are located. Now, that's either the biggest building in the world or the biggest tax rip-off in the world, and we've got to do something about it.


Senator Barack Obama is given one minute to define why he's the best candidate.

This interview was recorded November 9, 2007 at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: One thing we like to do on this program is give candidates a free-throw, let you have a commercial, if you will. Why you? Why should a Democrat stand up for you on caucus night?

Obama: I think we're in a defining moment in American history. The nation is at war. We are seeing the dream of a generation slipping away. People are working harder for less. They are having more difficulty saving and retiring. So ordinary politics I don't think will actually solve our problems. We've been talking about health care. We've been talking about energy for years, and nothing happens. What I can do that no other nominee I think can do is to bring the country together. I'm able to appeal to Republicans and independents around a progressive agenda. I think that I have a track record that is superior to any candidate in that race when it comes to taking on the lobbyists and winning. And most importantly I think that I've had a level of consistency and truth telling in this campaign but also in my political career that America needs right now. They don't need poll-driven, poll-tested approaches that end up going nowhere. What they need is some, you know, hard headed thinking about how we're going to solve problems.

Yepsen: Senator, one of the things I hear from a lot of caucus going Democrats is that among all the Democratic candidates, there's really not that much difference on policy issues. They're looking for somebody who can win in November. So why are you the most electable Democrat in this field?

Obama: Well, the polls and surveys show that I am able to appeal to Republicans and independents in a way that none of the other nominees can, and that means we can widen the field. If you start off with half the country not wanting to vote for you, you don't have a lot of margin for error. And we can win I think in suburban areas. We can win in states like Virginia, and that I think is important, not only for winning an election but also, more importantly, for creating the kind of working majority that actually delivers on health care, that is actually getting a new energy policy. And I feel confident that the kind of success I've had in the state of Illinois, a big diverse state, in attracting Republican and independent votes will translate nationally as well.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about his political experience and his desire for change.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.


Barack Obama talks about the role of younger voters in his campaign.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: I want to talk about younger voters. You have put a lot of effort into attracting younger Democrats, younger activists. You see it in your crowds, big crowds, a lot of young people, yet historically these people just don't turn out. Our polling shows that only 2 percent of the likely Democratic caucus goers are under age 25. So how are you going to make this work? Why are you the guy that's going to attract young people to the caucuses in a way that they've never been there before?

Obama: Well, first of all, we're not banking just on young voters. We're going after the traditional Iowa caucus-goer. We've heard again and again how, you know, if people haven't gone to caucus before, they're not likely to come for the first time. We understand that and we are paying attention to that. I do think this election is different in the sense that young people recognize the big challenges that are coming up. They know the climate change is real and nobody is doing anything about it. There is not a young person here who's not dealing with the cost of college. I was up in Ames; the average cost for students out there when they graduate, they've got $27,000 in get debt, average. So they feel very acutely some of the problems. They've got friends who are in Iraq and Afghanistan. I think they are going to be more motivated than they've been in the past. We're not banking on them in order to win, but I do think that you're starting to see young people pay attention to some long-term issues that they feel Washington has neglected.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about changes the Democrats have made in the past two years.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.

Glover: The premise of one of my earlier questions was the unpopularity of President Bush, but Congress is rated pretty low in polling as well. And it's argued that Democrats got control of Congress by campaigning on a number of items, none of which have happened. Why shouldn't voters being pretty cynical about that?

Obama: Well, I'm not sure none of them have happened. I mean ethics reform -- I was one of the leaders in ethics reform and we passed the toughest ethics reform since Watergate, eliminating meals and gifts and corporate jets for lobbyists and disclosing bundling. That's something that I take great pride in.

We have made progress on the minimum wage. There are a series of steps that I think have been -- made college more affordable that are significant. You're absolutely right, though, that on Iraq we have not made progress, simply because we have not been able to convince enough Republicans to shift off of the failed course of George Bush.

That is a frustration for Democrats and the American people. We have not been able to move aggressively on health care because, again, we require 60 votes in the Senate. One of the things that I intend to do as the nominee is to help us pick up more seats in a Democratic Senate so that we can actually move things through the Senate and I can sign legislation that I think is going to be important to the American people.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about the "national mood" and whether he thinks Democrats will win in November (2008).

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.

Glover: Let's talk about the national mood, if you would. The conventional wisdom among the pundits is that next year is going to be a pretty good Democratic year. There's an unpopular war out there. President Bush is not terribly popular. But when you start looking at a match-up between some of the leading Republican candidates and the Democratic candidates, it's pretty close.

Obama: Right.

Glover: What kind of a year are we looking at? Is it a Democratic year? A Republican year?

Obama: I think there is no doubt that Democrats have an opportunity to, as I said before, create a new majority, to go beyond the fifty plus one strategies that we've seen where the whole fight is in Ohio and Florida and you eke out a victory or you don't. I think that we can go beyond that. That's one of the reasons I'm running is because I think I can take advantage of that opportunity. But there are some dangers for Democrats if we don't provide the kind of bold leadership and honest leadership that's needed to do advantage. Republicans and independents I think have become so disillusioned with George Bush, they're ready to listen. But they've got to hear that we're serious about some of these issues that we're not just pandering to our own special interests and our traditional bases, but that we're willing to also talk tough.

You know, when I went to -- when I proposed, for example, raising fuel efficiency standards on cars, I didn't do it in front of the Sierra Club. I went to Detroit in front of the auto makers and auto workers, and that I think communicated the fact that I'm serious about this issue. That's the way I think Democrats are going to do well come November of '08.

Glover: What do you bring to this race that makes you appeal to independents and Republicans that your rivals don't? What quality is it?

Obama: Well, part of it I think is tone. It has to do with the fact that historically I've been somebody who's able to disagree without being disagreeable; that I don't assume that Republicans are bad; I don't assume the Democrats are always virtuous; I don't think that we've got a monopoly on wisdom; and I'm willing to listen to different ideas. And that non-ideological approach to politics, you know, coming together, setting some goals, and then being practical about how do we solve problems, I think that is a style of politics that I've adopted ever since I got into the state legislature in Illinois.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about his ability to make decisions even if they aren't popular.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Glover: Dave has ticked off some major problems facing the country. If in fact you're successful in winning the White House, aren't you going to have to make some deeply difficult and unpopular decisions pretty early on?

Obama: Yes. I think that -- well, let me say that I think they will be difficult. If they are explained properly, they may not be unpopular. Here are my priorities in the first hundred days.

Ending the war in Iraq, which means that we've got to call in the Joint Chiefs of Staff and figure out how can we safely and carefully, responsibly start removing our combat troops and initiating the kind of diplomacy insides of Iraq and regionally that is necessary.

Number two, get a process going where we are providing health care coverage for all Americans, and that's going to be a transparent, open process. We're not going to repeat the mistakes of the 1993 effort, where everything was behind closed doors. This is going to be an open process.

Everybody is going to have a seat at the table, and we are going to have legislation introduced by the end of the year that achieves universal coverage. And the third thing is really starting to work extensively on energy. This is a growing crisis.

And we have to start really ramping up our investment in solar and wind and biodiesel. I was in Keokuk -- they just got a new plant there, 400 well-paying jobs, building wind turbines. That's the kind of potential future for America and rural America that's available to us, but we've got to have leadership from the white house to do it.


Sen. Barack Obama gives examples of changes he'd like to make.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: Following on Mike's question. You've earned the reputation in the campaign for sometimes saying things that people don't want to hear. I remember you calling teachers, saying merit pay might need to be on the table in America. You told peace activists that, no, we may in fact have to spend more to rebuild the military that's been wrecked in Iraq. You just mentioned going to Detroit and telling -- give me some examples of what you will tell Americans that we don't necessarily want to hear.

Obama: Well, number one, we're going to have to start doing a better job of conserving on energy. Americans like to drive their big SUVs. They like to leave all the lights on in their house. We're going to have to change our habits.

If we want to deal with the climate change, which I think we have to deal with -- we're seeing already down in the Southeast, they're seeing drought that they haven't seen in a very long time. Western states, same problem.

It is indisputable that the climate is getting warmer. That's going to affect farmers. It's going to affect ordinary folks. If we want to do something serious about that, it's not going to be painless.

We're going to have to cap the emission of greenhouse gasses. That means that power plants are going to have to adjust how they generate power. They will pass on those costs to consumers. We will have to guard against lower income and fixed income individuals having to pay more for electricity, but a lot of us who can afford it are going to have to pay more per unit of electricity, and that means we're going to have to change our light bulbs, we're going to have to shut the lights off in our houses.

And those are adjustments that won't over the long term affect our standard of the living, but it does mean that we've got to show some responsibility to the next generation, something we haven't been doing.


Sen. Barack Obama talks about education and motivating change.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Glover: How do you convince people to change their lifestyle, to live differently? Or to turn the question on its ear, are voters ahead of the politicians on this kind of stuff? Do they get it and the politicians don't?

Obama: Well, I think that voters do understand it. I think it is important for us to send some price signals to change behavior, you know. If electricity goes up, people start becoming more mindful of their electricity bill. Over time the electricity bill goes back down as technology catches up. But we are going to have to, I think, make some cultural shifts.

I'll give you another example, education. You know, I always go into inner city schools, and I will say we need to get you more money. You know, there are crumbling schools.

It's not as bad in Iowa but in places like South Carolina, you've got schools that were built in the 1890s that are still be utilized, and no computers, outdated books. All of that is worth fighting for.

But I always tell parents if we don't parent, if we don't turn off the television set, if we don't put aside the video games, if people don't understand that kids in China and kids in India are outworking out and studying math and science in a way that our kids are not doing, if parents aren't instilling a sense of educational excellence, we're going to fall behind. And I think the President has to communicate that shift in attitude and shift in culture if we're really going to improve our education system.


Sen. Barack Obama summarizes his campaign's message.

This interview took place on November 9, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: Senator, we've only got about a minute left. What thoughts do you want democratic activists to carry with them about you as they head out on caucus night? What should they remember?

Obama: What I want them to remember is that I've spent over two decades fighting for the core values of the Democratic Party. I fought for justice and equality as a civil rights lawyer. I fought for the constitution as a constitutional law professor.

I have fought to make sure that ordinary working families have health care, have the kinds of economic opportunity that they deserve. I have consistently fought for the kinds of foreign policy that will resolve conflicts without resort to the military force.

And so, you know, I've been consistent in my values and my ideals, and I think that they are the values and the ideals of the Democratic Party. And I think that the day that I am nominated and certainly the day that I'm inaugurated, this country will look at itself differently and the world will look at America differently.

That's not just symbolic. That allows me to do some things that previous Presidents have not done.


The interview gets off to a surprising start as Senator John McCain jokingly calls the interviewers 'jerks.' This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.


Borg: "Veteran" describes John McCain in many ways: his distinguished military record, congressional career, and presidential candidate. After two terms in the U.S. House, senator McCain was elected to the senate in November 1986, succeeding GOP icon and former presidential candidate Senator Barry Goldwater.

Well, today McCain is in his fourth six-year term, and he serves as ranking member of the Senate's Armed Forces Committee.

In 2000 Senator McCain went after the Republican Presidential nomination that eventually went to George W. Bush. But with the Bush Presidency now in its final sixteen months, Senator McCain is again seeking the White House.
Welcome to "Iowa Press."
McCain: Thank you. Good to be with you.

Borg: Thank you. And you know the two journalists, I think, from the campaign trail. You've been campaigning here in Iowa.

McCain: Yeah, jerks.

Borg: Did I hear "jerks"? "Des Moines Register" political columnist David Yepsen and "Radio Iowa" News Director Kay Henderson.


Sen. John McCain speculates about nuclear weapons in Iran.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Henderson: Senator, in the debate this past week in Dearborn, Michigan, you were asked about Iran and you made sort of a cryptic comment that perhaps intervention there is closer to reality than we might think. Could you expand on that and explain what you meant?

McCain: Well, there's varying expert opinion on where the Iranians are in the development of a nuclear weapon. There are many experts that say within two years they would reach a tipping point.

In other words, it would be inevitable if they have amassed sufficient fissible [sic] material and enough to make it inevitable that they would have a nuclear weapon or more -- fissile material -- I get it right -- plutonium. So the -- those experts say that within two years. And if that's the case, then that could trigger scenarios which could be very dangerous. And I'm not predicting military action on the part of the Israelis nor the United States of America, but I am saying that this administration's policy -- and I agree with it -- that it is unacceptable for the Iranians to have a nuclear weapon, and the Israelis have stated basically the same thing.

Henderson: So this may happen during George Bush's watch?

McCain: It could happen -- it could happen under President Bush's watch. There was a question in the debate, as you know, in Detroit, where the question was raised as to whether you would consult with Congress or not, and I said it depended on the scenario. If you immediately have information that requires immediate action, you have to adhere to your oath of office to support and defend the nation.

If you have sufficient warning period and sufficient -- advanced information about what progress they're making, then I think that you have to consult with Congress and you may even have to go to Congress for their approval.


Sen. John McCain is given one minute to define why he's the best candidate.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: One thing we do on this program, Senator, is give candidates an opportunity just to have their say. Give us your commercial. Why should an Iowa Republican stand up for you on caucus night?

McCain: I think that I can restore trust and confidence on the part of the American people and their government. It is lost now.

I believe the transcendent challenge of the 21st century is the enormous threat of radical Islamic extremism. It was not an issue in 2000, obviously.

And I believe that my experience, my knowledge, my background, qualifies me or gives me the qualification for the consideration of the people of Iowa.

And finally, one of the major reasons why Iowans and Arizonans and others have lost confidence and trust in government is because of our excessive, outrageous, disgraceful spending habits, which has led to corruption in Washington.

I've been fighting it for twenty years, long before most of these guys were in office. So I think that I can adequately address that issue as well.


Sen. John McCain makes a statement about the Iraq War, and how his stance will affect the voters.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: Senator, you talk a lot about the war in Iraq in your campaign. It's pretty unpopular. What should the country be doing?

McCain: I hope the country would be doing what they're doing now, David. Thanks to General Petraeus, whose performance before Congress and the American people -- Americans are frustrated and angry and they're saddened by the sacrifice that has been made.

It was mismanaged for nearly four years, and now we have a strategy that is I believe is succeeding -- I know is succeeding. The question is whether the political and other aspects of a successful counterinsurgency will also come to fruition.

So I think what General Petraeus's appearance did was basically American people said he makes a good argument, he and Ambassador Crocker, and maybe we'll give it some more time. I don't think they're satisfied. I think they're still upset and have every reason to be, but I think they are beginning also to recognize the consequences of failure and a withdrawal.

Yepsen: How bad does this issue hurt your candidacy?

McCain: Probably -- probably has hurt me in states like New Hampshire where -- where the people feel very strongly antiwar.

And I don't like to get either maudlin or sentimental, but every once in a while something happens that reminds you of what your priorities are.

And that was when a woman at a town hall meeting in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, stood up and said, "Senator McCain, we wear a bracelet with my son's name on it. He was nineteen. He was killed outside of Baghdad before Christmas last year." And then she said to me, she said, "I want you to do everything that you can to make sure that his death was not in vain."


Senator John McCain talks about the size of the military, recruitment, and private contractors in Iraq.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Henderson: Let's veer back to Iraq. There are concerns being raised about Blackwater, a private firm that's providing security in Iraq. Do you share the concerns that Iraqi government officials have raised?

McCain: I share the concern and I think it needs to be reviewed as to what their rules of engagement are, what their behavior is, who controls them, et cetera. But I would think it's important to point out that the reason why they are there is because we never had enough troops. We never had enough boots on the ground, so they're carrying out responsibilities that normally American military would be carrying out. So I have to lay part of the responsibility for the situation, or significant part of it, back on the previous failed strategy of the President's and Rumsfeld's.

Henderson: So what should be done? Do you think more troops?

McCain: We're not going to have more troops. I'd love to see -- I wish we had the size of army and marine corps and guard that we could send more troops, although I rely on General Petraeus's estimate and judgment that we now not only have enough but we're able to get back down to previous numbers. He's much more expert to make that judgment than I am. But I think that we have to now tighten up on the rules, regulations, accountability, et cetera.
You know, many of these "Blackwater" -- there are many contractors -- are guarding Iraqi government officials. If you want to remove them, who's going to provide for their security? But it's sad and it's tragic that these things are happening.

Borg: I want to go back and pick up something you just said: I wish we had enough army, marines, air force and so on, navy, to do what we need to do; I think that's to finish without your words. You said you want to rebuild trust. Whether or not you get the nomination and move on to the presidency or whether you're on the armed services committee, do you think that the American people have the trust now that will be necessary that you've alluded to, to rebuild the military?

McCain: Yeah, and I think it's important to appreciate. This is the best, most professional, best-trained, bravest military, in my view, we've ever had in history. They're doing things that are remarkable. A couple of months ago and even now, they're going out in 130-, 135-degree heat, putting on 40 pounds of body armor, another 40 pounds of equipment, and they're doing magnificently. The problem is there's not enough of them.

Borg: How will you get more?

McCain: Recruit them. The Marine Corps and Army is one-third smaller than they were at the time of the first gulf war, and it was an all-volunteer force. And if you accept the military's estimate and my estimate that they're the best most professional, best equipped, et cetera, then you don't want to destroy that. You just want to expand it.

Borg: But the Air Force is cutting 40,000 now just to save payroll to buy new tankers. They're going the other way.

McCain: We're going to have to spend more money. And by the way, I fought against those tankers and saved the taxpayers two billion dollars when we exposed the corruption that was going on between the Air Force and the Pentagon and Boeing on that. We need a lot better oversight, and we can save a whole lot of money by procurement reform. We just had a small ship that was supposed to cost $160 million. They spent $400 million on it and then scrapped it. And that's a, guess what, a cost plus contract. In the days of Ronald Reagan, we had fixed cost contracts. Now it's completely out of control. But in final answer to your question, it's a marketplace out there. We can recruit enough young men and women who will serve in an all-volunteer force, and we don't need to go back to a draft, in my view.

Henderson: Do you think that troop levels should be pre-Gulf War again?

McCain: I do. I think that we are facing a long war in Afghanistan. I think Iraq will require our attention for quite some period of time. When I look at the flashpoints around the world, whether it be in our own hemisphere or other parts of the world, I think we need an Army, Marine Corps roughly that size. But now, is exactly that mission? No. We've got to have the kind of people who are trained in civil affairs, intelligence, Special Forces, those kinds of things. We have to refocus the army and reorganize it and the Marine Corps to meet the new kinds of warfare we're in.


Sen. John McCain talks about workers needing health care, and his ideas on what the government should and shouldn't do.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Henderson: Do you have a solution for what ails the country when it comes to health care and the rising cost of insurance?

McCain: Choice and competition, affordability and availability, and not a big-government solution. We have to change the incentives. We have to have malpractice reform. We have to have portability of health insurance that people can keep. We have to have result-oriented health care. Now we pay practitioners for every procedure. If someone has a chronic disease, we should -- we should, which is 75 percent of health care costs, we should pay them by the year and by the result of their care as opposed to each procedure that they went through.

I picked up the Des Moines Register this morning and see across the headline about the brewing scandal concerning the pharmaceutical companies. That's because there's no transparency. Why didn't we know? Why didn't we know it? Because this information is not available. There's a long list of things that we need to -- steps that we need to take.

But I'm against a single-payer, big-government solution. Take a trip up to Canada or England if you think that that works.

Borg: What would you do first in health care? Or it would be one big, comprehensive package. But what needs doing first?

McCain: I'm not -- it's a series of steps but if I had to say one thing first, I would say health insurance companies have to be able to reward wellness and fitness. If you look at 75 percent of the health care costs in America are to five chronic diseases, wellness and fitness is a very important item.

I would also say malpractice or reform is something that needs to be done, and I would also stress this portability of health insurance.

Today people are scared to do death about losing their job, which is compounded by their ability to keep their health insurance. They lose that employer contribution, as you know, and have to make it up for themselves. They're out of a job. So we ought to give them a minimum health care insurance policy so that at least they're protected from catastrophic or serious medical requirements as they are moving from one job to another.

The change in the information technology revolution is the movement of jobs. People in Michigan -- those folks in Michigan last night, their parents went to work for the automobile company, they stayed there for thirty years, they got a retirement, a pension, and health insurance.

Now, obviously, we know of the churning. Seventy-three workers -- 73,000 workers went on strike for a day or two for general motors. Do you know that that work force was 400,000 not that many years ago?

This is a period of monumental change. We've got to give people confidence, and we've got to give them some belief that their future will be secure.


Sen. John McCain discusses the status of the Republican Party. This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: A larger process question is the condition of the Republican Party, lost elections in 2006. What do you advise the party to be doing to stave off another defeat in the 2008 campaign?

McCain: Clean up our act. We've got to clean up our act. You want to mention how the war in Iraq may have hurt me. I think the biggest blow to our base wasn't the war in Iraq. It was spending going completing out of control and the corruption. I don't use the word corruption lightly. We have former members -- Republican members of Congress in federal prison, and unfortunately there's more to come. So we've got to get back to the principles and philosophies of being careful stewards of people's tax dollars and do it in the most ethical fashion. I mean it's just terrible what we've done. And we've let spending go completely out of control. You know, we came to power in '94 to change government and government changed us. And by the way, the system is not fixed yet. It is still broken. It has not been fixed.

Henderson: Social conservatives in your party have started talking about voting for someone other than a Republican in 2008. Even among the candidates standing on the stage in Dearborn, Michigan, this week, there were those who said, hey, I may not support the nominee of the GOP. How do you fix that?

McCain: You noticed I had a clever line. I said of course I would support myself. Pretty funny? Pretty corny.

I believe in the process. That was, I believe, our fifth debate. Maybe voters are satisfied with the selection. Maybe they're not. We'll know in the next few months as more and more people focus --

Henderson: So you think its much ado about nothing?

McCain: No. I understand why some people who view some of the socialist issues as their top priority. I just support the process, and I am a loyal Republican. Now, would I be happy if we chose a nominee who doesn't have -- doesn't have the pillars? And, frankly, one of the pillars of our Republican Party philosophy is the rights of the unborn. No. But I would respect the process, and I think it's important that we do so.

Henderson: The other interesting thing when you listen to Republican candidates is how often they mention Hillary Clinton. Is it healthy for your party to be the anti-Hillary Clinton party in 2008?

McCain: I think it's important for us to draw the distinctions. I really do. I think that, for example, I'm a free trader, and I tried to make that very clear the other night in Dearborn. And Senator Clinton just came out, in contradiction to her husband's policies, against free trade. I think that's a legitimate area of deep concern that we should have about the future of this country. Those issues are fine. But gratuitous bashing of anybody, I'm not sure that contributes much to the debate and I don't do it.


Sen. John McCain lists some of today's work force problems - related to free trade - and mentions community colleges as part of the solution.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.

Yepsen: Senator, talk about -- let's talk about some issues here. Talk about this trade question. Even polls now showing a lot of Republicans are not sure that free trade is working for America. What do you say to those who say it's been a one-way street?

McCain: I try to present some of the facts to them about the millions of jobs that were created, et cetera, et cetera.

But that's of no comfort to the worker in Dearborn, where we were just last night, who lost their job, who can't afford their health insurance, and has no pension, because this is -- this is a revolution of monumental propositions. It's unmatched anything since the industrial revolution, and there are people left behind.

Fifty thousand people today make their living off eBay. That's no consolation to the United Auto Workers employee who lost his job and is not going to have their health care, et cetera.

We've got to take care of those who are left behind. Then they will be for free trade, including -- and I'm no big-government person. But if someone had a high paying job and they're an older person, 50, 55, about your age, then -- then -- and they had to take a much lower paying job, a much lower paying job, then why not compensate them for a while so that they cannot experience this traumatic change in lifestyle.

Job training programs and education: none of the federal programs work today. Our community colleges: here in Iowa, where's the strongest part of education? The community colleges.

Go to the community colleges. Have them design education and training programs and let them give these people another chance. Make health insurance affordable and available. Right now that is the biggest concern in any town hall meeting that I have.

And make sure that the next generation has social security, which right now they will not.


Sen. John McCain says the national debt is mainly due to 'the dramatic expansion of entitlement programs. He goes on to talk more about health insurance issues.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Yepsen: Senator, I want to ask about you national debt. It's related to health care. Comptroller general says it's headed through the roof. What specific steps would you take to curb the national debt?

McCain: The reason why we have the national debt at the level we have is because of spending, and also the dramatic expansion of entitlement programs without paying for them.

Now, I'm a guy that voted against the Medicare prescription drug bill. Why? Because it was eight hundred to a trillion dollars of unfunded liability that our kids are going to have to pay for. And by the way, you know what? You're paying for my drugs. Do you know that? Don't you think I've voted enough pay raises for myself that I can pay for my own? I mean every time we have an entitlement program, even if it's worthy, we expand it and we're not going to pay for it.

On the s-chip; I know what public opinion is about the s-chip. Do you know how we're supposed to be paying for the s-chip program, the additional $35 billion that they want? Probably a lot of Americans don't know. A dollar increase in the tax on a pack of cigarettes.

Now, so we're going to take care of children's health, but we're encouraging everybody to smoke! I mean 22 million new smokers we need to pay for this program?

Yepsen: You describe the problem with Medicare as an entitlement that's -- but what do you do now? I mean it's growing. Are you going to raise some taxes? Are you going to cut the benefit? How do you deal with it?

McCain: With competition in these areas and to make sure that we can implement these reforms, it will bring down costs. And part of that will be competition, whether it be for insurance companies competing for different categories of people, whether it be pharmaceutical companies competing, whether it be -- really one of the important aspects of this is to put more responsibility on the person who is insured.


Right now, as you know, when it's paid for and taken care of, then people are not as responsible as they will be and part of that is a higher co-pay but it's also more of an investment on the part of the person who is the recipient.

And one other thing: with low income people right now who cannot afford health insurance, I'm for giving each individual $2,500, family $5,000 in tax credits. Then they can go out and purchase the health insurance of their choice, and that I think is important. Then they'll be very careful how they invest that $2,500 or $5,000.


Sen. John McCain talks about his opposition to subsidies, including subsidies for ethanol production.


Sen. John McCain says he'd like to see the U.S. taxes made simpler and more fair.

This interview took place on October 12, 2007, at Iowa Public Television.



Henderson: There's at least one congressman in Iowa and several members of the Iowa Republican Party who favor a fair tax, which would be a consumption tax, a sales tax to replace the income tax. There are others who have advocated, in the past, a flat tax. What would you do to fix the federal income tax code?

McCain: Americans paid $140 billion last year for preparation in their tax returns. Six out of every ten American s had to have somebody else do it. It's remarkable when you think about it. I don't -- I would sign either one if it came across my desk, but I don't think either one of them are the entire solution.

Here's what you need to do. You need to get a commission and you need to do it headed by somebody like Greenspan or somebody like that who is very credible. And all the credible economists, they report out their commission report, and Congress is required to vote yes or no.

That's the only way we ever closed the base in America was to have a commission report; by law, they vote yes or no. Every time you send it through one of these committees in Congress, the special interests prevail.

The code is that high and Americans are sick and tired of it. I understand why they want the fair tax. I understand why they want the flat taxes. We could develop a simpler, fairer tax code, I think using the best minds in America.

On the third of four special editions, Market to Market covers President Obama's White House to Main Street Tour as a special "Rural Economic Summit." Obama's tour stops at Midwestern events in Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois aimed at strengthening the rural economy.


Watch full video coverage of President Barack Obama's April 27 town-hall meeting at Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa.


The first stop on President Obama’s “White House to Main Street Tour” was Fort Madison, Iowa where he was on the "cutting edge" of wind turbine blades manufactured by Siemens Energy. The officers say 9 million young adults, or 27 percent of all Americans ages 17 to 24, are too fat to join the military. And the group, which calls itself, "Mission Readiness" is calling on Congress to mandate more rigorous nutrition standards for school lunches. The offensive is just the latest assault on America's food system. Increasingly though, production agriculture is also targeted as "the enemy" in a larger debate. Market to Market recently caught up with two of the protagonists: Michael Pollan, an outspoken critic of America's food system who wrote The Omnivore's Dilemma; and Blake Hurst, a Missouri farmer who countered Pollan with a piece he calls The Omnivore's Delusion. Producer Andrew Batt examined the merits of production agriculture with both men and filed this report.


Speaking at a Macon, Missouri biorefinery operated by South Dakota-based POET, President Obama renewed his commitment to homegrown, renewable energy.

While the president claims his administration’s investment in clean, alternative sources of domestic fuel is expected to create or save more than 700,000 jobs across America by the end of 2012 – he focused on the productivity of a smaller workforce.

President Obama: “Ten years ago next month, this plant produced its first gallon of ethanol. Today, 45 employees produce 46 million gallons a year. So one of you is overachieving. Congratulations to all of you.”

POET CEO Jeff Broin was clearly pleased that the President chose to highlight his company.

Iowa Public Television presents...The Des Moines Metro Opera and Opera Iowa production of A Dream Fulfilled: The Saga of George Washington Carver.

The opera opens in the year 1890, with George Washington Carver leaving Winterset, Iowa to attend Simpson College in Indianola as an art student. Dr. and Mrs. Milholland, friends and supporters of the young student, tell Carver that Simpson is a place where he can learn and grow regardless of his race.

The story continues as Carver is convinced by Miss Etta Mae Budd, his art professor at Simpson, to attend Iowa State College in Ames, Iowa. Budd persuades Carver to pursue a different path: science.

After graduating in 1894, Dr. Louis Pammel, one of Carver's professors, offers the young scientist a teaching job at Iowa State. Carver accepts.

Eventually, Carver takes a professorship at the Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama. He continues his work to overcome prejudice and discrimination. Eventually, Carver becomes a respected scientist, inventor, and advocate for peanuts and other legumes.

After several years at Tuskegee, Carver travels to the U.S. Capitol for a meeting with members of the House Ways and Means Committee. Carver hopes to convince the committee a tariff is needed to protect American peanut farmers. His 10-minute presentation is extended to an hour.

Finally, Carver returns to Indianola where he addresses the 1941 Simpson College Bachelorette service. As he tells the assembled crowd to do common things in an uncommon way, Carver reflects on his long and eventful life.

In 1993, the era of girls' six-on-six basketball in Iowa came to an end. This one-hour IPTV documentary takes a look back at the game and what it meant to generations of girls who played it.

One of the most acclaimed sports in Iowa history, six-on-six was especially popular in small towns. It was there that young women became queens of the court, where communities rallied behind their daughters, and where school leaders, mostly male, fought for girls' equality. Like no where else in the country, young women in Iowa have played the game of basketball for over a century.

Six-on-six was unique. The girls who played it and the rural communities that loved it were part of an experience that may never again be replicated in any sport, by either gender. For Iowans, it was More Than a Game.


This documentary is a visual essay portraying farm families during the Great Depression through World War II and the postwar years, as seen through the eyes of Iowa photographer Pete Wettach who took nearly 50,000 pictures of rural America, mostly Iowa, over a span of 40 years. Wettach was born in New Jersey but his fascination with rural life, particularly with farming, led him to Iowa where he would remain until his death in the late 1970s.

Since 1861, almost 3,400 men and one woman have received the Medal of Honor for heroic actions on the battlefield. This is the story of one of those recipients, Sal Giunta of Hiawatha, Iowa.

On October 25, 2007 Specialist, now Staff Sergeant, Sal Giunta was on patrol with men from the 173rd Airborne Brigade in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan. They were among three platoons of men that left before day break to march up the valley in the Kunar Province which is on the border with Pakistan.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "The day was like any other, I guess, October day in Afghanistan. It starts off cold, cool in the morning and then the day heated up. It's hot in the sun. We weren't standing. The walk out there took us maybe an hour and a half or 2 hours because it was still dark and the climb was a pretty steep climb."

In his second deployment to Afghanistan, Giunta was the leader of a four-man rifle team. The men in Giunta's platoon were tasked with watching over another group from the 173rd that would setup a short distance down the mountainside.

Though ready for action, the men spent an uneventful day waiting and watching. For the men in Battle Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade, this day would end in a way no one expected.

As the sun went down, the men of Battle Company packed up their equipment and began to move down the trail toward home. A full moon was coming up in the night sky.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: Simple hand and arm signals, simple, you know, wrap it up, we're going, heading back, it's gonna be good. At that point, it's still too early to think about cold water. It's just finish and go back to where we started from this morning. Once we get in, then we start thinkin' about what makes us happy."

They walked only a short distance when the two squads Giunta was with were ambushed by Taliban fighters. The gun fire was intense. The insurgents used rocket propelled grenades on the trapped soldiers. Tracer rounds, normally indicating the path of every 3rd or 4th bullet, appeared as an impenetrable wall of red.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: I was in a good position. I had a good position for myself. Drop down, return fire. Saw kind of the bigger picture of what was happening, because in this way it's all in front of us as opposed to the rounds were coming left to right, and now we're seeing flashes. We're actually -- it's all clicking on how close this is and about how many people we're up against."

Training took over. Private Kaleb Casey and Private Garrett Clary, two of the soldiers with Giunta, began firing back. Staff Sergeant Erick Gallardo, the squad leader was seeing to the rest of the men in the two rifle teams.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "There's no thinking about tomorrow. There's no thinking about the next minute. Your body's reacting, signals are being used, shooting's happening. It's all trained. It's all reaction."

Giunta was hit in the front plate of his armored vest but was unhurt. Then he saw Staff Sgt. Gallardo coming down the trail. Gallardo was hit in the helmet by small arms fire. Giunta ran out from behind what little cover he had to help the fallen soldier.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "This is all fast. It's all still happening. Then jump up to help him up. I didn't think he was gonna get up. I was just gonna grab him and pull him back. That's my next move."

The soldiers gathered up what ammunition and hand grenades they had and decided to make a move to their buddies who were cut-off farther down the trail. The small group threw their grenades in three volleys moving toward the enemy gun fire.

After moving to their last position, the soldiers came upon Specialist Franklin Eckrode who had been wounded. Despite all the action around him, Giunta realized he was not under fire. The young Specialist prepared to run to the place where he thought Sgt Josh Brennan, leader of the other rifle team, would be fighting the enemy. Brennan and Giunta were more than just two soldiers -- they were friends.
When he arrived at where Brennan should have been he noticed two men dragging a third man away. It was then he realized the two men were enemy fighters and the third man being dragged away was Sgt. Brennan.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: " And as I'm running, I noticed, you know, they're not friendlies, and that's not an Afghani that they're carrying. So I just run and shoot, shoot and run. They weren't ready for that. They both had their guns slung on their backs. They had a guy in their arms. So I just ran up on 'em, just shootin'. Shoot to kill. That's what time it is. Time to get rid of them."

After the Taliban retreated, Giunta saw to the seriously injured Brennan, who had suffered multiple shrapnel and bullet wounds. Giunta called for a medic and Sergeant Gallardo. Little did he know, the team's medic, Specialist Hugo Mendoza had already been killed.

Giunta kept Brennan occupied with small-talk while waiting for another medic to arrive.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "Just kind of brought up, you know, Wisconsin, going home. Trying to laugh about how he knows he's gonna go home, he's gonna be drunk in a week. And he's still talking like, "Oh, man, you're gonna go home, you're gonna go to Wisconsin." He's like, "yeah." He's not talking a lot. It's a forced talk but he's still responding, he's still squeezing my hand, and he's still with it.

I want to say the whole time leading up to that was less than, you know, maybe 15 seconds, maybe 30 seconds, maybe 100 lifetimes. I don't know. You know, it's all -- my time frame, my idea of time during the time during that process is all out of whack. I don't know how long."

Brennan was air lifted for treatment but died from his wounds some time later.
Back in Iowa, his parents, Steve and Rosemary Giunta, were unaware of what had happened. Sal made several phone calls home before he was able to tell the whole story.

Rose Giunta, Hiawatha, Iowa: "He called the house, and it wasn't to tell us what went on. It was just to get some relief from all the stuff that was happening right there. And when he called, I could tell. His voice was different. He shouldn't have been calling me at that time, from what I could tell, because days previous their group had gotten a break.

Steve Giunta, Hiawatha, Iowa: "Rose just finally said, 'You know, you need to tell me what happened. My mind is just going in so many different directions. You need to set it straight.' And that's when he replied, 'I'm gonna tell you, and I'm only gonna tell you one time. and I don't want you to ask any questions.' You know, we did everything we could to not gasp, not go, 'What were you thinking? Why did you do that?" We just listened. When it was done, we just told him that we loved him. We told him that we were--you know, thank god that he was safe. we prayed for the people that he has lost in his life, because -- you know, at that time we were just dealing with that deep emotion of how blessed we felt, but how utterly sad we felt that not everybody had their whole family together any longer..' “

For his actions under fire, Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta will be awarded the military's highest award, the Medal of Honor.

Giunta is humble about the honor that is being bestowed upon him.
Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "Why do they want to give this to me? Because I've got two good buddies that I lost that night. I don't deserve it. Don't give me the highest medal. I don't need a medal. I didn't do anything for a medal. I didn't do anything in particular for Brennan. I did what I was supposed to do. If I didn't do what I was supposed to do, it would be hard for me to call myself a professional. It would be hard for me to accept the paycheck that I'm gonna get."

On Tuesday, November 16, 2010 President Barack Obama presented Giunta with the Medal of Honor in a ceremony at the White House. Staff Sergeant Giunta is the first living recipient of the nation's highest award for bravery under fire since the Vietnam War.

President Barack Obama: "It is my privilege to present our nation’s highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, to a soldier as humble as he is heroic: Staff Sergeant Salvatore A. Giunta. Now, I’m going to go off-script here for a second and just say I really like this guy."

At a time when most people could not read stained glass windows were sometimes referred to as "Biblia pauperum", or the bible of the poor. The pictorial art found in stain glass windows was the literature of the poor and way of learning and keeping the scripture.

Today, even though most people know how to read, there is still demand for those who can create stain glass.

One of the biggest studios in the U.S. is in Fairfield, Iowa where windows have been created and refurbished for business and churches from Texas to Alaska and all the way from New York to Hawaii.

It's a craft that is at least a thousand years old and one that has changed very little over the centuries.

Ron Bovard lets us tour his studio where we'll find out what high tech changes have come to this ancient craft and what makes the work his studio is doing different.
