The Bloomington City Council show support for Mayor John Hamilton’s proposed annexation of seven areas just outside the city’s municipal boundaries; Another in a long series of tax court battles between CVS and the Monroe County government is scheduled for tomorrow morning; A new agriculture technology startup called The Bee Corp has been launched by former Indiana University students; The Indiana Department of Transportation is accepting applications for Governor’s Summer Internships.

A cabinetmaker, furniture designer and builder, author, preservation advocate, and storyteller, Nancy Hiller has been beautifying people’s homes in Bloomington and other cities for years. She started working with wood as a young woman simply because she needed affordable furniture. She trained in the art and craft of woodworking on a dare and went on to make it her life. She’s written the award-winning book “A Home of Her Own,” a study of the places women live in and own. Now she’s releasing her fourth book, “Making Things Work: Tales From a Cabinetmaker’s Life,” due out in mid-March. She joins Michael Glab on this week’s edition of Big Talk.

This week’s edition asks Bloomington residents what they think about teacher pay.
