This week on Valley Edition we discuss the drought in California from three perspectives: the Naval Air Station in Lemoore, farmworkers and the mayor of a city with little to no water allocation this year.

Also, Valley Edition Host Joe Moore talks about the future of Fresno’s Fulton Mall with both those who are in support of a drivable mall and those who want to keep it intact. It’s also the kickoff of the 2014 World Ag Expo.
