- We continue talking a little bit about the ND girl's basketball coach and we talk about the comic book character that has come out of the closet. KFC is testing an edible coffee cup in the UK.

Betty-Joan Beaudry - 2-1-1

Joe Marino and Barb Michler - CDBG Funds

- We have Joe and Barb in studio to talk about her claim that the West Side Senior Center is not given as much money as the other senior centers here in the city. She claims its a difference of $25,000-$30,000 given to other senior centers and $12,000 given to West Side. Joe Marino speaks as much as he can with this.

Joe and Barb Continued

- Barb talks again about all the activities and services they provide and how little they ask from the city, they just wanted to be treated fairly.
