If God exists, God is certainly an ironist. This week's evidence: KJAM runs a blip on local boosters' continued hopes for adding two lanes to Highway 34 from Lake Madison through Colman to I-29. KJAM says "Highway 34 Four the Future" chairman John Goeman hopes any upcoming economic stimulus package would include 14 miles of concrete for Lake and Moody Counties.
