Lt. Governor Gregg Climbs Cell Tower


CARLISLE, Iowa - There is an uplifting story involving a Siouxland elected official, and we do mean literally uplifting.

Iowa Lt. Governor Adam Gregg of Hawarden is climbing a cell phone tower.

It's all part of an effort to show support for the state's apprenticeship programs.

Murphy Tower Service says it's having trouble finding qualified applicants.

The state's also announced two new apprenticeship programs at Wells Fargo and Tyson Foods.
