Since his start in radio news, Trent has won awards from the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, the Nebraska Associated Press, and the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
Rice also serves as the 2009-2010 President of the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
Rice is a native of Plattsmouth, Nebraska. He and his wife Solveig have been married since 2000. They live in Ames where he enjoys golf, reading, movies, music college football, and the heartbreak that comes from being a Minnesota Vikings fan. Trent and Solveig have twin daughters Annika and Kaija and a son, Erik, who shares the same birthday as his sisters, just five years later.
I don't have a lot to offer today, so I'll give you a couple of links of interst. Before that, let me say that after a lingering drought I know we need rain, but holy cow do I need a little sunshine. This drizzly, rainy, gloomy weather we've seen the last few days is really starting to sap me. My cholrophyl needs some sun--I need to photosythesize.
We talked today about the Medal of Honor awarded posthumously to Capt. Emil Kapaun for his heroism as an Army chaplain during the Korean War. Here's a nice write-up about Fr. Kapuan and what a real hero looks like.
Also, I like to recognize good writing and engaging content when I can. My friend Laura writes a great blog about the challenges presented by owning a older home. While that's the premise for the concept, she actually writes (and writes well) about lots of other things. Give it a tumble, if you are of a mind.
