Valley Edition November 21, 2017: Mr. Potato Head; Rental Housing; Valley Fever; Giant Sequoias

Nov 21, 2017

On this week's Valley Edition: It's been two years since the Summerset Village Apartments raised the issue of substandard rental housing in Fresno to a level city hall couldn't ignore. Earlier this year, the city council adopted a new ordinance creating a rental housing inspection program, but nine months later, inspections have yet to begin. We also hear a report on how a new local effort is using Mr. Potato Head dolls to help the parents of premature babies cope with their situation. 

We also hear interviews with:
Harold Pierce of the Bakersfield Californian, about new developments in on-going coverage of valley fever
Roger Bales of UC Merced, on new research on Giant Sequoias and California's drought
