Cherokee Theater Presents Rabbit Hole

(Cherokee) -- How would you deal with the death of a child?  Would it affect your relationships and could you ever get through the grief?  These are the themes tackled by the Cherokee Community Theater in their upcoming production of "Rabbit Hole."  Andrew Linn is co-directing the show with his wife Pamela.  He's also playing the lead male role in the performances coming up October 5th-9th.  Linn loves the way the playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, handles the dialogue in the script.  He says both strong emotion and humor come through while handling a very tough topic.

According to the State Forest Nursery, ash and basswood are changing to yellow and the leaves are starting to fall in Northwest Iowa. Cottonwoods in the river valleys are also showing some change.

If you're waiting for the perfect weekend to go for a drive and see the yellows, oranges and reds, O'Riley tells us why a drive through the Loess Hills on October 15th is a good choice.
