MIDDAY Midwest Digest, October 30, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about students killed by a pickup, a prisoner killed by lethal injection, slow corn harvest and Columbus, Ohio.

Tragedies involving kids are heartbreaking. Students were hit by a pickup in Indiana as they crossed the road for the bus this morning. Three of four died at the scene.

R.J. Johnson was a prison guard in South Dakota. He died seven and a half years ago, killed by a prisoner. His killer was put to death yesterday.

Crop harvest is painfully slow for some, because it's down. 

Max will be in Columbus, Ohio, later this week. It's a growing city, and is the fourteenth largest city in the country. The American Angus Association is meeting there later this week.
