Welcome to the year of getting awesome: 2017. We have on the horizon a flood that could match what we experienced in 1997 and 2005. We spoke with Washoe County Commissioner Bob Lucey for this podcast.
Also, Dana Nollsch gives us a preview of upcoming events, including the TEDxUniversity event, and we have a very special guest.
Last on today’s show, we covered a story last year about the state of Nevada purchasing a private landowner’s property in order to build the USA parkway, the road that will connect Highway 50 east of Carson with Interstate-80 east of Reno. We have an update on that story that Bob filed with Reno Public Radio.
