Rekha Basu & Betty Andrews - MLK Celebration Awards

On Monday at the 29th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration in Des Moines where politicians such as Gov. Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg spoke of equality and opportunity, where young Emmet Phillips offered some stunning poems, where Izzah jB Knox spoke of current needs, where prayers were offered and music made; two people received recognition for their efforts. Rekha Basu from the Des Moines Register and Betty Andrews from the NAACP and I'll Make Me a World in Iowa spoke "truth to power" during the nearly two hour event. We had the opportunity to visit with both. What they said is worth repeating.

Publishing with a Mission with Mandy Houk

If print is dead...as some suggest...why do publishers still crank out exceptional magazines? The answer is finding a niche that is under-served and going for it. In this case Mandy Houk does just that with Des Moines Move. Published six times a year the focus of Des Moines Move is to get school age kids out and moving. While for some that might mean changing the WiFi password at home...this magazine, which goes to kids in school in partnership with the schools, attempts to educate and reward. Have a listen and then...move.
