WGLT's Sound Ideas - Monday 8/9/21

The drenching downpours of Sunday brought anguished howls of 'not again!' from some Bloomington Normal residents who haven't fully cleaned up from sewage backups and flooded basements in June. And restoration company backlogs mean there's not much help available . The Regional Superintendent looks at how and who will enforce the mask mandate in schools. A very smart dog learned to take the train to go all over central Illinois in the early part of the last century. Rags was a dog of uncertain pedigree and affable character. Hear the story of a long ago dog's journey into Bloomington, Springfield, and other towns in the latest episode of McHistory. And learn about the entwined history of chocolate and racism from an ISU Fulbright scholar.
