Week in Words: Service to community a walk in the park
Our local public radio stations, KMXT and KODK, are holding a membership drive this week, and they have their highest goal ever to meet because of this year’s and next year’s looming state and federal cuts. As a result, there are some wonderful discussions about public media going on right now, how to redefine it in this brave new world. (Shakespeare reference, ftw!)
