Here’s a few of the stories that The Big Breakfast was talking about throughout the week. From Sioux Falls and across the country, these topics had people talking. Please feel free to comment below.

The Wrap:

1. Construction is officially underway of the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls after groundbreaking Thursday afternoon. Mayor mike Huether says it’s the largest investment in the city’s history and when completed, the $115 million events center will seat 12,000 people.

2. The city of Sioux Falls is now allowing lawn watering only one day a week. The move was prompted when flows in the Big Sioux River dropped below fifty cubic feet per second. Your day to water is determined by the last digit in your house number.

Monday – 0
Tuesday – 1
Wednesday – 2 and 3
Thursday – 4
Friday – 5
Saturday – 6 and 7
Sunday – 8 and 9

3. Sioux Falls traffic officers were out in full force at school zones throughout the city this week. KIKN’s  Jerry Dahmen rode along with Sioux Falls Police Officer Treadway and witnessed several citations handed out. Let’s be careful and obey traffic laws and keep our kids safe.

4. Accepting the nomination for president at the Republican National Convention Thursday night, Mitt Romney vowed to create 12 million jobs in four years if elected.

5. Hundred of thousands of people are still without power and parts of Louisiana and Mississippi are a soggy mess as Isaac dumps major rain in the nation’s midsection. The storm has washed out roads and left some neighborhoods under water.

6. A blue moon shone down on us Friday night. The next won’t occur until 2015. Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on it, was also laid to rest on the same day.
