Welcome to WYSO Weekend, our weekly radio magazine! On this week's program, commentator Rebecca Rine ruminates on the her relationship with Facebook. We’ll bring you old case files from Dayton History, and a conversation with Scottish filmmaker Steven Lewis Simpson about his latest film Neither Wolf nor Dog. See full details below.

Both of Ohio’s United States senators weighed in this week on the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. For this week’s PoliticsOhio, WYSO’s Jerry Kenney speaks with Jo Ingles from the Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau. Ingles says – despite ongoing partisan rancor in Washington over health reform – Ohio’s two senators are in agreement that some parts of the existing Affordable Care Act need to be changed.

Patterson’s attorney, David Singleton, says it will take weeks before the board issues its determination on whether to move forward with a final release hearing.

Don't you love it when somebody has the good grace to go out at the top of their game? It can be depressing to watch former star performers embarrassing themselves because they didn't know when to quit. We have all seen them, the baseball players who strike out on pitches they used to hit or the lead singer who wrote the lyric "I hope I die before I get old" still out there on stage 50 years later gamely strumming away. Some writers keep plodding along, putting out books long after inspiration has faded.

The director of the Dayton VA Medical Center in southwest Ohio says he'll retire in October after nearly six years of leading the facility, which serves about 40,000 veterans annually.

Glenn Costie also oversaw the VA medical facility in Cincinnati for part of 2016. He filled in as director of the Cincinnati medical center after the head of its Ohio-based regional network was ousted and the Cincinnati hospital's then-acting chief of staff was disciplined in connection with a probe of the hospital's management and veterans' care.
