Max Armstrong's Midwest Digest

MIDDAY-Midwest-Digest-December 28, 2016

Max Armstrong talks mall fights, traffic deaths, and an interesting reward for employees of one Iowa company.

Max Armstrong talks about changes at malls after the post-Christmas fights where there were widespread arrests, and some injuries. Traffic deaths are on the rise, and 2016 may be the biggest in 50 years - thanks to distracted driving. And Max notes that drug deaths in Wisconsin topped traffic deaths. And finally he shares news that Bertch Cabinets in Waterloo, Iowa, rewards its employees - all of them - with a special trip.

Midwest Digest is a twice-daily look at news from around the Midwest. Veteran broadcaster Max Armstrong offers news and commentary for the region.
