Ways To Subscribe

For the first time in a long time, two people are running for McLean County circuit judge at the same time. They'll even face off in the primary. We'll talk about why that's happening and the strengths and weaknesses of the two candidates Judge Amy McFarland and State's Attorney Don Knapp. A central Illinois woman specified she did not want life sustaining care withdrawn but the person who held her power of attorney was trying to do just that. Incoming McLean County Public Guardian Robert Porter tells you about that work. And Community Players bring the holiday feel good tale of cheer and finding yourself to the stage. Get ready for the classic journey of Buddy, a young orphan transported to the North Pole and raised as an elf going back to New York.
