Apr 11, 2017

This week on Valley Edition our team reports stories on how Madera County is dealing with ICE working in the county, drone racing and how crops are faring with all the rain. FM89 Reporter Jeffrey Hess interviews  Fresno County Department of Public Health Director David Pomaville about what the county is doing to investigate lead levels in children. We also chat Hanford Sentinel Reporter Seth Nidever about how Hanford is reacting to medical marijuana companies would like to set up shop in the city. Plus we’ll talk with Valley Musician Omar Nare. He's created a new type of music genre called "Nuevo Mariachi." It's blend of traditional mariachi, jazz, soul and pop music.
