  2. Thanks to a family member we received an article on my husband’s family, Rompot. His roots go back to the first immigrants to Iowa from Bohemia and his grandfather owned the Rompot Farm. Wensil was given 650 acres of land when he immigrated from Bohemia. We will be looking forward to more articles on the family. Thanks for all the efforts on doing this project we understand the time involved. Thomas & Linda Rompot

  5. Paul radio show was always a big deal in our house when i was growing up. Nobody was allowd to talk when Paul was on. My dad out of the blue heard Paul talking about him in the summer 1975 while he was eating lunch and just could not believe his ears. It was about a compost he built in his back yard in Eagan to make free heat and air. A small newspaper had published it before Paul got it. Are there some archives where I can find this? I was not home that day……………Val
