Max Armstrong reports on car jackings, an Iowa shooting, space heater warnings, and an in-person meeting in Wisconsin

Max Armstrong observes that perhaps cold weather will stall the carjackers which have hit the Minneapolis area hard. Max shares the story of Marshalltown, Iowa, police seeking a robber who committed a murder and he offers one observance about the shooter. Max warns about the use of space heaters in this cold weather. From This Week in Agribusiness, there's news of some conferences still meeting in person. One example is the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin, in a facility rearranged for safe meeting.

Midwest Digest is a twice-daily audio feature produced by Max Armstrong, offering news and commentary from across the Midwest.
