Max Armstrong's Midwest Digest
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.
