Valley Edition - June 12, 2018 - Idle Oil Wells, Dry Creek Preserve, Jim Boren, "The Unmade World"

Jun 13, 2018

On this week’s Valley Edition we hear reports about how idle oil and gas wells are drawing new scrutiny from Sacramento regulators, and how residents in a rural part of Clovis struck a compromise with the city and developers to protect their way of life. Plus we talk with Jim Boren of Fresno State’s new Institute for Media and Public Trust. Later in the show we are joined by USC professor Kathleen Wilber to talk about the growing problem of elder abuse and why most instances go unreported. We close the program with author Steve Yarbrough, who joins us to discuss his new novel “The Unmade World.”
