We look back at how catastrophes have forced cities to move forward and make improvements, and talk about how they can improve after the coronavirus pandemic. We also learn about a milestone in a photo project to capture images of wildlife around Wisconsin. And we learn how rural area hospitals are looking at the obstacle of keeping COVID-19 vaccines cold.
