Host Joe Uris steers the ship solo thru 2 issues, one local and one international.
Locally, we're centered on Mike Erickson's [Wiki] 2004 "vacation" in Cuba, where he lost all of the receipts and other paperwork showing that his vacation was, in actuality, a humanitarian mission, carrying medical supplies to a Cuban clinic that doesn't seem to exist.
Internationally, of course, is our relationship with Russia, now that they've demonstrated their admiration for US Foreign Policy thru mimicry, by brutally invading another sovereign nation under the guise of "Liberation." Because they can.
Today, hosts Mark Bitterman and Marlese Franklin bring us a four-part show, starting with Annie Kirschner, Child Nutrition Coordinator at the Oregon Hunger Relief Task Force, talking about summer nutrition for kids when school lunch programs are on vacation.
Due to a report from city Auditor Gary Blackmer last week the city's program to spur affordable housing development has been called into question.
Tax breaks, or tax abatements, have been given to developers who are promising to build affordable housing. The audit, which looked at eleven of these abatements, shows that developers are not following through on the deal.
KBOO's Michael Ianello spoke with audit director Drummond Kahn about the audit and the city's plans for future over sight.
