This week on Valley Edition we take a look at Fresno State football, veterans, the possibility of a new town in the region, water issues in the region and more.

Beginning the program, Valley Edition Host Joe Moore talks with Paul Swearengin, host of the Paul Swearengin Sports Podcast, about Fresno State Football. The two discuss the dispute over the team’s name, mascot, gangs and more.

He served as a Marine for six years.
