P-E Columnist Cassie MacDuff and KVCR's Ken Vincent review some of the week's top news stories in the IE, including:
-The announcement by Gloria Negrete McLeod that she will not run for re-election to her Congressional seat, and how that sets off a new round of "musical chairs" in the IE political landscape;
-The City of Riverside is ready to show off its remodeled, expanded convention center;
-American Forces Radio moves its daily radio programs serving armed forces in Afghanistan to a facility in Riverside.
KVCR commemorates African-American history month by hearing about the history of trying to get nonprofit government and other small groups with small budgets to realize the importance of public relations. KVCR's Ken Vincent talks with San Bernardino PR pro, Carl Dameron.
91.9 KVCR’s regular Tuesday morning contributor John Husing, the Chief Economist for the Inland Empire Economic Partnership, last week began a new series of commentaries focusing on the growing rate of poverty in the Inland Empire. It’s a topic Dr. Husing has long written about in reports and articles, and talked about in speeches and on 91.9 KVCR. In the coming weeks, he’ll suggest a variety of strategies that IE leaders should consider to alleviate poverty. In this segment, Dr Husing outlines the issues and economic forces that have aggravated poverty not just here in our region, but across the nation.
