Winning The Nobel Peace Prize


Tomorrow, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced.

Much More Than Parking Cars

Hagan Myers works at a parking garage. One night, he was just about to clock out for the week when he was delayed. A pregnant woman and her husband, who had parked their car in the lot near the maternity ward at University of Iowa Hospital, realized they weren’t going to make it into the hospital before giving birth. While the mother worked through rapid contractions and the stunned father looked on, Hagan leapt into action. Hagan joins Dick to tell the story of what happened - and the unexpected reward he got after the baby was born.
