VOICES IN THE STREET
The Little 500 is utterly unique and also the largest collegiate cycling event in the world.  This year’s race saw the team from Kappa Alpha Theta win the women’s race by twelve-one-hundredths of a second, and the Black Key Bulls scored the victory in the men’s division.  Voices in the Street hit the streets, or track, rather, to speak with participants in the 64th annual Little 500 and ask them, about the nature of the event.  Is the Little 500 more about the race or the socializing that accompanies it?

Like in previous years, the Clerk’s Office is scrambling this week to find enough workers to staff all its voting sites for the May 6th primary. As of Friday afternoon, the County still needed forty-four workers. For today’s WFHB feature exclusive, Assistant News Director Joe Crawford spoke with Clerk Linda Robbins about the poll worker shortage and how it could affect the election process.
