Let’s Get Our Communities Back On Track (Hour 3)

This holiday weekend, Aaron reminds us to spend some time with our families. He recommends checking out Ticket to Ride, an easy-to-learn board game for all ages that’s themed on building railroads.

If you’re concerned about the level of support that your local legislators give to schools, police, or anything else, don’t be afraid to contact them for information, or to express your perspective! You can find that information on your city's website.

$6 Billion and Counting (Hour 2)

There has been another tragic mass shooting last night at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, in which six people and the shooter have died.

Today, Todd sports his Bradie Ewing jersey to support axe week, hoping that the Badgers can reclaim Paul Bunyan’s axe from Minnesota. 

Finally, Todd urges us to follow the money regarding the impending shutdown of the UW Platteville-Richland campus.

UW Richland Center? I Hardly Know Her! (Hour 1)

Happy Hump Day!

On a not-so-happy note, Todd expounds on yesterday’s breaking news that the UW Platteville-Richland Center campus is closing, and what it could mean to you.

Passing the Torch (Hour 3)
