Aug 22, 2018

This week on Valley Edition, we begin a new series on the issue of workplace violence enountered by doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. We also hear a report about how local immigration attorneys are raising concerns about changes to the U Visa program, which helps undocumented immigrants who are victims of crimes. And Kerry Klein brings us a special report about an African drum camp in the Sierra foothills. Later in the show we learn how the community of Stratford is recovering after both of the wells that serve residents there failed earlier this month. And we talk with a journalist who says selfie-induced summit fever is causing climbers and hikers to make unsafe decisions on Mount Whitney. Plus Rei Hotoda of the Fresno Philharmonic joins us to talk about their upcoming season.
