This week on Valley Edition: Frustration and hopelessness surround upcoming groundwater laws. Some growers feel so disillusioned, they’re selling their land and getting out of agriculture.

In Fresno, we speak with one retired Bulldog gang member who’s found a calling trying to reduce gun violence.

 

Plus: What happens when your home is so unsafe, it’s considered unlivable? A Tulare County woman describes being given only 72 hours to find somewhere new for herself and her four children.

 

And it's almost time for the Hmong New Year: Middle schoolers tell us why the celebration matters to them. We also hear from famed Valley author Gerald Haslam on the phrase he coined, "The Other California."

 

Listen to those stories and more on the podcast above.
