Let’s Get Organized

Let’s Get Organized November 17, 2014

Do you sometimes think your home or garage could star in one of those TV hoarding shows? Getting organized can be a task so daunting that a profession has grown up around the concept of conquering one's stuff. Mike McIntyre talks with professional Northeast Ohio organizers about how they help harried people clear away the clutter. Tune us in Monday morning at 9:00, if you can find your radio.

Weekly Regional Round-up

Weekly Regional Round-up November 14, 2014

The race continues to build a downtown footbridge spanning the Shoreway. But the county is questioning the city's committment and time is short if we want to impress visiting delegates in 2016. We'll also detail the emergence of a Northeast Ohio leader as the go-to-guy for a high-powered post in Washington. And the past candidacy of Ed FitzGerald is touted by a major publication as being number two in the country but it's not exactly an honor. Join host Rick Jackson.

Cuyahoga County’s Foreclosed Homes

Cuyahoga County’s Foreclosed Homes November 13, 2014

The foreclosure crisis that devastated so many communities continues to be a drag on neighborhoods throughout Cuyahoga County. Thousands of abandoned homes wait to be demolished. We'll get an update on the $50 million demolition plan, hear why housing advocates want a comprehensive county housing policy and discover Cleveland's secret to fighting "zombie foreclosures." Seriously, that's a thing.

Affordable Care Act--Year Two

Affordable Care Act--Year Two November 12, 2014

The second enrollment period for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act opens November 15. We'll spend the hour on The Sound of Ideas Wednesday morning at 9:00 answering questions, looking at what's new and examining mistakes from last year that you'll want to avoid. And even if you're not buying health insurance through Obamacare say, for example, your employer offers plans, our experts can talk about how best to weigh your choices. Join host Mike McIntyre.

The Last Days in Vietnam

The Last Days in Vietnam November 11, 2014

On Veterans Day, we pause for a moment to say thank you to those who served in the military and we delve deeply into one particular moment in history with veterans who bravely tried to save South Vietnamese refugees and U.S. Citizens in the final, chaotic days of America's involvement in Vietnam. Two of those veterans, subjects of a documentary that will air on PBS, join us in studio.
