This week on Valley Edition we start off the program with a segment about the Rough Fire. Mike Pruitt, a spokesman on the Rough Fire, and KVPR's Ezra David Romero join Host Joe Moore to talk about the blaze. We also hear the story of how 25 hikers were smoked out of the backcountry because of the fire. 

Later we hear from KVPR Reporter Diana Aguilera. She brings a story on how Igbo Tribal members from Nigeria in the Fresno region are working to preserve their heritage. 

FM89's Jeffrey Hess reports two stories for the show. In the first piece he visits the Central Valley town of Lindsay where grade levels have been abolished in schools and grading's been changed. In his second story he reports on the use of drones

Ending the program Moore interviews Americana artist Lance Canales about his latest album "The Blessing and the Curse."
