Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, Jan. 18, 2022

Max Armstrong talks about McDonald's changes and staffing, rain and river level impact on South American crops, a service group in Iowa and the first full moon of 2022.

Local McDonald's restaurants aren't open as many hours and have scaled back menu items, and even raised menu prices. 

South American crops need rain, and low river levels are impacting crops, too.

Kids in Des Moines, Iowa, drew attention yesterday for an annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service.

Did you see the wolf moon last night? The first of the year. There seems to be more attention on the moon now.
