We first learned of the very busy Dwana Bradley from our friend Tiffany Menke of the Urbandale Chamber. She hooked us up and we are so grateful. Dwana is the Editor of The Des Moines Urban Experience the owner of the Urban Media Company and the Executive Director of Iowa Juneteenth. We told you she was busy. We start out talking about her magazine the Urban Experience, roll into her printing company and then talk about Iowa Juneteenth that we suspect you may not know about until...now. Oh, one other thing, the headliner for the Juneteenth Celebration is Soledad O'Brien. Have we got your attention now? Meet Dwana...
I had heard of Tony Colosimo from his daughter Cady but this chance meeting in Washington D.C. led me down a storyline that is really amazing. We talk about the new technology that could be employed for trucks that roam our city streets and then get into a conversation about the mess that recycling is in. Prices for scrap paper and plastic have collapsed, leading local officials across the country to charge residents more to collect recyclables and send some to landfills. Used newspapers, cardboard boxes and plastic bottles are piling up at plants that can’t make a profit processing them for export or domestic markets.
