Valley Edition - May 1, 2018 - Ag Burning, Congressional District 22 Race, Golden State Killer

May 1, 2018

On this week’s Valley Edition, we learn why open field agricultural burning has increased in recent years, and what’s being done about it. We also look at the race for the 22nd Congressional District, and find out why what has long been considered a “safe” seat for Republicans is drawing more attention and money this year. Later in the show we get an update on political unrest in Armenia, and on Tulare County’s connections to Joseph James DeAngelo – the accused Golden State Killer. Plus we talk with two local historians about their acclaimed new book on the Civil War, and efforts to whitewash slavery’s brutal history, both a century ago and today.
