In this episode of Week in Review we are adding two new segments. First is Lies, Damn lies and statistics – a segment to go over some recent numbers that impact local communities. The second new segment is our weekly quiz. After the lies, damn lies and statistics segment and each of the four short story segments I will ask a question.

Our four short segments start with a story on the ravages of climate change on military installations – Some pretty aggressive action being proposed by the state legislature in Illinois to raise state and local revenue- Our good GOP friends in Florida and their never ending pursuit to end local control – then move on to why so many legislative and local offices go unchallenged in our country. We finish with our intractable issue – School funding.
