On this week's program:
Since the housing bubble burst in 2008, abandoned homes have become a problem for all communities. Is this something that local governments should tackle? Or should it be handled by the people in the neighborhoods?
Our second topic on this week’s Moral Side of the News is a thank you to our friend and panelist, Rev. Jim Brown.
Rev. Brown has decided to retire from Moral Side after some 30 years of dedicated service. He joined the panel in 1983 - Ronald Reagan was president, the Russian military shot down Korean Air Lines flight 007, Martha Layne Collins was elected governor and UK and UofL faced off in the NCAA tournament for the first ever dream game, all of which were topics for the Moral Side panel.
As a panelist, Rev. Brown and other members share responsibility of deciding where the money raised through the WHAS Crusade for Children is allocated. He has always been a champion of the small agencies and programs. Brown along with Sarah, his partner of 57 years, have made the Crusade family richer and more caring because of their efforts.
Thank you Rev. Brown for your dedication to our community, the Moral Side of the News and the WHAS Crusade for Children.
