Max Armstrong shares new of welcomed weekend rains, though in some parts of Eastern Iowa there was plenty. It turns out that some popular weekend towns are getting more attention as people move from cities and look at the potential for lakefront homes, and rising interest in these popular tourist towns. From This Week in Agribusiness, meat experts are saying there may be strong pork prices for producers this fall. And Max remembers Lou Brock, the famed St. Louis Cardinal base stealer from the 1960s passed away over the weekend.
