The city of Jackson, Missouri has been growing as of late and while growth is a good thing, it also presents some challenges. We sat down with Mayor Dwain Hahs for an update on what's happening in Jackson.

Mayor Hahs told us that one of things a growing city works to provide is good infrastructure for the residents of the city. He said, "As a city, as a municipality, providing infrastructure to the citizens is most important. And what we're trying to do is stay ahead of our growth."


Feral hogs are a problem in southeast Missouri and the Missouri Department of Conservation is working with the U. S. Department of Agriculture to trap and eliminate them.

Candice Davis is the Media Specialist with the Missouri Department of Conservation and the host of KRCU’s Discover Nature. She stopped by the studios to tell us more about the many issues caused by feral hogs.
