Valley Edition - February 12, 2019 - Hospital Pricing, Renewable Energy And PG&E, Graphic Art Show

ve_2-12-19_v2.jpg

On this week’s Valley Edition: We look at how pesticides may be contributing to honey bee deaths, and what that means for the $3 billion dollar almond industry. We also look at how the bankruptcy filing from utility provider PG&E could derail the state’s renewable energy goals.

Later, we take some time to explore the arts and culture scene by visiting an art gallery in Bakersfield and talking to a Fresno writer with a new collection of poems.

Plus: We follow up on last week’s interview with the Yonsei Memory Project, and this time, we hear from the storytellers.
