A new year is here, a time for reflection and resolution. How are people in Bloomington resolving to improve themselves and our world?

This week on the Voices in the Street: Turning the corner from ghosts and goblins to turkeys that gobble. ‘Tis the season for Thanksgiving.

WFHB wrapped up its Fall Fund Drive this past Sunday—big thanks to everyone who supports community radio! We’re lucky to live in an area where so many people work so hard to establish and support local services that enrich our lives and give a real sense of responsibility to the community. With time and monetary budgets tight for most, we hit the streets to ask your friends and neighbors about the charitable and non-profit organizations they support.
