Today, Casual Fridays is about several issues in the news, starting with the ongoing violence, riots and controversy in Ferguson, Missouri, which everyone is STILL talking about, debating and upset about.
Plus a discussion with Hammond police lieutenant Patrick Vicari the department’s Traffic Division Commander about this weekend’s sobriety checkpoint in his city. It’s part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over traffic safety campaign.
Also, with schools back in session again, we’ll talk with Beth Battaglino, CEO of HealthyWomen. She’s a national expert who will tell Lakeshore listeners what YOU should do to make sure your students have a safe, heathy school year. She has a very helpful checklist for you and your family.
And we’ll also revisit one of our most popular segments called “Are YOU calling ME?!” – it’s a montage sampling of voice mails that I receive from Lakeshore listeners, Post-Tribune readers and social media followers. It’s always entertaining and sometimes disturbing. You can judge for yourself.
