Towpath Trail Tales

Towpath Trail Tales July 7, 2014

Cleveland's Flats has long been an industrial zone and an entertainment district. Residences have risen there now, too, and office buildings. And as of next week, a 9-acre park and trail on the once forlorn Scranton Peninsula. Monday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas we'll talk about how the Scranton Flats project came to be, how it fits into the region's park infrastructure and its role in furthering the Towpath Trail along the course of the Ohio and Erie Canal. Join host Mike McIntyre.

Politics Takes a Holiday July 4, 2014

The Capitol Steps addresses timely issues set to show tunes! There's John Kerry singing "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Crimea?" and Hillary Clinton admonishing Joe Biden to "Let It Go" when it comes to running for President.

The 3rd Branch of Government Speaks July 2, 2014

The United States Supreme Court had a very busy June, issuing a number of rulings likely to impact you in some way. Some firms can skirt the Obamacare contraception coverage requirement. Police can't search your cell phone without a warrant. And public sector unions were dealt a blow. Join Mike McIntyre as we dissect those and other decisions by the high court, and discuss the ramifications, Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
