On Valley Edition: Fresno's Homeless; Bugs Harming Calif. Citrus; Calif. Birth Rates; Valley Firsts
This week on Valley Edition we focus on a variety of issues that are impacting the region. Valley Public Radio Reporter Rebecca Plevin reports on homeless displacements taking place in Fresno and Reporter Ezra Romero speaks with experts from across the region on a tiny brown bug that could decimate California's citrus industry. Valley Edition host Joe Moore speaks with Nick Hill, a Kingsburg citrus grower and chairman of the Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Program, about the issue.
Ending the program, Moore speaks with Peter McDonald, Dean of Library Services at Fresno State about an exhibit called Valley Firsts. The exhibit will highlight more than 100 San Joaquin Valley firsts that illustrate the regions role as a source of new ideas.
