The on-air portion of HPPR’s "Summer of Renewal" membership campaign concluded Thursday evening.
However, our need for renewing and new members remains. If you missed a chance to offer support to High Plains Public Radio over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, there’s still time. Take care of it now so HPPR can take care of providing you with public radio service. Donate today by calling 800-678-7444 or going online at hppr.org.
Fun facts to know and share from this week’s news on High Plains Public Radio and HPPR Connect:
> “It's been in use for the last 50, 75 years. It will still be here, but there's gonna be a lot less water."— Robert Lascano, wind erosion and water conservation researcher for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Lubbock, Texas
> “It still remains to be seen whether [wind] surpasses coal for the entire year. … But, so far, it just illustrates the big transition that we’re having away from coal and toward wind power.” — Daniel Cohan, civil and environmental engineering professor at Rice University
> “When people speak up, the authorities will listen, and we hope that this news encourages other survivors — both in Kansas and throughout the country — to come forward.” — Statement from SNAP (Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests)
