On day 35 of the partial government shutdown, one furloughed federal employee expresses concern over how signifciantly reduced staffing at state historic sites could impact the condition of some of the most treasured artifacts in Iowa. 

Also on this "news buzz" edition of River to River: A reporter reflects on US Senator Joni Ernst's response to being "forced out as a survivor" of alleged mental and physical abuse by her former husband, a look at a highly anticipated announcement from former congressional candidate J.D. Scholten, an update on the lawsuit against the University of Iowa by a faith-based student group, and a conversation with the superintendent of one Iowa school district trying out "virtual snow days" as a way for kids to finish school work from home.
