  • Inside Racine's Community-Oriented Policing Houses

    A new bill would establish a grant program for cities to implement community-oriented policing houses or COP houses. The city of Racine pioneered this model of policing in Wisconsin almost 30 years ago. We speak with the head of Racine’s COP house unit to understand how this community policing method works.

  • How Spring Weather Trends Affect Agriculture

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently increased the “normal temperature” in the U.S. to just more than 53 degrees — the highest on record. We look at how changing weather trends like this affect farmers.
