Conrad Nelson chats with Mayor Don Zoutte.

Knoxville Mayor Don Zoutte may have said prematurely that he was ready to come back with a vengeance, as he suffered another health battle after our last visit. This time, we caught him at his favorite breakfast place. 

Zoutte is home after another hospital stay at the Des Moines VA hospital. He wants to thank everyone for their support, but he is too afraid of forgetting someone to name names. 

He is not fully recovered, but he is planning to resume his mayor duties. On his agenda for today is a meeting with City Manager Harold Stewart.
