Last week, the Ohio Department of Health announced changes to a national program that serves people living with HIV/AIDS. Changes to the Ryan White program will cut medical services, restrict eligibility, institute a services wait list, and reduce medications currently offered by the program.
Right now more than 14ooo Ohio residents living with HIV/AIDS are served by the program, but escalating costs and a projected state defecit of 16.4mil will cut that number.
Wright State University and the University of Dayton are among six universities recognized as "Centers of Excellence" by the state. It's part of its plan to promote innovation and develop Ohio's economy.
WYSO has been a home to local musicians and live music for most of its fifty plus years. In 1971 Tom Duffee came to the radio station with his brothers Dan and Jim and started a program that's still part of our line-up called Rise When the Rooster Crows.
A few years later, The Corndrinkers was born – with Tom on banjo and vocals, Linda Scott and Barb Kuhn on fiddles, Doug Smith on guitar and Al Turbull on bass. Their music keeps an American tradition alive.
