Max Armstrong reports on the aftermath of the shooting tragedy at Michigan State University last week. From This Week of Agribusiness, it’s FFA week which started as a pure agriculture group but today is focused on growing the next generation of leaders. Max advises that tractors converging on the school, it’s part of the celebration. The weather this week is going to hit the Twin Cities with heavy snow. In Memphis the funeral for baseball pitcher and broadcaster Tim McCarver, is set. And he wraps with the story of how a small Illinois town came together in a unique way for a child dealing with cancer.
