With the state facing difficult economic times, Arizona could be facing a crisis in building and maintaining its roads. Bill Buckmaster talks with Si Schorr, the chairman of The State Transportation Board.

Former Arizona Congressman Jim Kolbe brings us a guest commentary on the subject of free trade, and the responsibilities it creates for the United States and our trading partners.

The University of Arizona is the recent recipient of a collection of artifacts from the age of Vaudeville, the variety entertainment style that was popular in the early 1900's. Mark McLemore meets a former Vaudevillian child performer, Dr. David Soren at the U of A, to explore the collection.
