Featured in this Show

  • Bills Target Heroin in Wisconsin

    Heroin use, abuse and the crime and death associated with it are on the rise throughout Wisconsin. We talk with two state lawmakers about steps the Wisconsin legislature is taking in this session to make it easier for people to administer drugs that could save someone’s life, and allow people who witness someone in the midst of a heroin overdose to call for help without the fear of being prosecuted.

  • Reflections of a Former Olympian

    Mike Peplinski was vice skip on the 1998 United States Olympic Curling team that finished in fourth place at the games in Nagano, Japan. Peplinski grew up in the Galesville area and got his start in curling at the Centerville Curling Club when he was 10. He reflects on his time in Nagano and his time as one of the best in the world at the sport of curling.
