Indiana legislators aren’t going along with what some called a modest request from Governor Eric Holcomb to expand Pre-K education in Indiana; Organizations with large carbon footprints will soon be able to mitigate their environmental impact by buying carbon saved by people with smaller footprints; The owner of a 1950’s ranch style home in Maxwell Manor has garnered the support of the City Council for designating their home as a historic district; The Bloomington Environmental Commission has announced its sixth annual Eco-Heroes contest; If you’re looking for some free music, jelly samples, harvesting exhibits and exploration in Bloomington this weekend, the Hinkle-Garton Farmstead is the place to go.

Born in Vietnam just after the fall of Saigon, Thuy Bogart and her family left that war-torn land and lived in a refugee camp in Malaysia for a year. They came to America in 1980. When she grew up, she fell in love with tango, the steamy South American couples dance. She met her husband and future musical accompanist, Ben, at a Milonga, the traditional music and dance tango party. She has helped nurture tango communities in several states and now teaches and dances here in Bloomington. Thuy explains what tango is and why she loves it as she joins Michael Glab on this week’s edition of Big Talk.

This week’s edition asks Bloomington residents what they think about Donald Trump’s immigration policies.
