Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, Aug. 16, 2022

Max Armstrong talks about children dying in hot cars, a possible death penalty in Indiana, corn and soybean crop conditions and Great Lakes water levels.

So far, there have been 15 children who've died after being left in a hot car this year.

A prosecutor will announce tomorrow in Indiana whether they'll seek the death penalty for the person who killed a police officer.

The soybean crop is in the pod filling stage, and weather conditions this next week should be helpful. The corn and soybean crop conditions dipped ever so slightly over the last week.

Water levels in the Great Lakes are slightly lower over the last couple of years, except for Lake Ontario.
