Thinking Out Loud: Chief Chris Hammann

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:14:39 +0000

Besides a familiarity with law enforcement techniques, a small-town police chief must possess an awareness of local history, the economy and city policy. Chris Hammann recently spoke to KBIA's Trevor Harris about the nature of his work as chief of police in Vandalia, Missouri . Hammann discussed the community impact of a local women's prison, his knowledge of repeat customers and made a call for legalizing marijuana in the state for medicinal use.

Off the Clock – The Resurgence of American Bluegrass: From Fiddle Music to “Stomp Grass"

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 21:58:43 +0000

Traditional bluegrass music is a melting pot. It has roots in Appalachian, Celtic and jazz music, and musicologists trace the origins of the banjo back to traditional stringed instruments from West Africa. It’s a genre that’s constantly evolving. Pat Kay is a bluegrass musician and books shows at the Blue Note, a music venue in Columbia. He said the traditional style has seen a resurgence in recent years.

Global Journalist: India's Air Pollution Crisis

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 17:38:25 +0000

Recently an international cricket match in the Indian city of Delhi had to be temporarily halted in the middle of the game for an unusual reason. The cause: air pollution levels so high that a top player for India's opponent, Sri Lanka, began vomiting on the field. India has had pollution problems for years, but recently it has gotten significantly worse. Smog was so bad in New Delhi last month the government ordered thousands of schools closed and banned trucks from the road for a week. But India’s problem goes far beyond New Delhi. According to the World Health Organization, the country has 13 of the world’s 25 most polluted cities. And in 2015, the British medical journal The Lancet reported that 1.1 million Indians died prematurely from diseases caused by air pollution. On this edition of Global Journalist, we take an in-depth look at India's pollution crisis.

Talking Politics: Looking at local impacts of DACA

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 16:42:57 +0000

In September, President Donald Trump announced he would end a federal program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. The program was created in 2012 when then President Barack Obama signed an executive order. DACA protects nearly 800,000 people around the United States who were brought here as children without documentation, giving them a chance to work or study without the risk of deportation. Missouri has about 3,500 DACA recipients, and nearly half of them are students. KBIA’s Hannah Haynes talked with a young DACA recipient to find out how the program has changed her life and what the Trump administration might mean for the program going forward.

Missouri Bolsters Fight Against California Egg Law

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 22:28:56 +0000

Thirteen states filed a lawsuit Monday with the U.S. Supreme Court challenging a California law that requires farmers to give egg-laying hens more space. The lawsuit, filed by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, claims the 2015 California egg law is a violation of two federal laws. One prohibits state laws from discriminating against citizens of other states and another bans one state from imposing its farming regulations on other states.

Exam: Columbia Public School Teacher Receives National Award for Children's Literacy

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 21:43:32 +0000

In November, Columbia Public School’s Misha Fugit, a sixth grade English teacher at Jefferson Middle School, received a national award for her work in children’s literacy. KBIA’s Taylor Kinnerup spoke with Fugit about receiving the award and her plans for the grant money. Kinnerup: Can you just tell me a little bit about the award you've recently received? Fugit: Yes, I received the Bonnie Campbell Hill National Literacy Leader Award - it has a very long title - from the Children's Literature Assembly, which is a branch of the National Council for the Teachers of English. So, that’s a mouthful, but the award is really about helping teachers who have shown promise in the field, as far as their contributions to articles or thinking in the field, to learn and grow themselves as professionals in an area that they're interested in.

GEORGE KENNEDY: Civic Conversation About Policing Needs More Folks Paying Attention

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 20:25:18 +0000

It’s hard to think of a more important topic for civic conversation than the relationship between our police department and our minority, especially African-American, community. That’s why it’s so painful to realize that the conversation on that topic that has been under way since August at the Second Missionary Baptist Church seems to be going in a closed circle, with a decreasing number of the same well-intentioned participants saying the same things to each other but little indication of progress. Read the complete column online at the Missourian.
