This past Sunday, April 22, was Earth Day. But did you know that the day before was the birthday of conservationist John Muir, or that the day after was the day widely believed to have been the birth and death of William Shakespeare? These may seem like unrelated occasions, but one special event brought all three together in Yosemite National Park.

On this weeks show, Valley Public Radio's Rebecca PlevinĀ reports that within 90 days all inmates at risk of catching valley fever in Central California prisons must be relocated. Also on Valley Edition, host Joe Moore chats with Fresno Bee Editorial Page Editor Bill McEwen about local and state politics.

This week on Valley Edition, we look at how Valley residents are working to develop new, grassroots solutions to the problem of hunger in our community. We also look at how planned court closures will affect the residents of rural Fresno County communities, and learn about this year's Woodward Shakespeare Festival.
