We talk with Chris Wilbeck about Prestage Farms' hog confinements being forced upon rural communities. We also talked with Adam Mason of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement about the issue. The conversation hits a nerve, as we receive calls from rural residents in Jefferson, Clayton, Poweshiek, Adair, Dallas and Greene counties. Adam and I also dig into the question: What is it going to take before Iowa Democratic lawmakers -- who for years campaigned in favor of local control yet did nothing when they had power for four years -- free themselves from the chains of corporate money and stand with the people they pledged to support?
