Lori Gravley reads Marian Schwilk-Thomas' poem, "Abundance of Silence."

Professional forecasters have wonderful jobs, don't they? Weather forecasters can be completely wrong about the weather and they still get to keep their jobs. Political pundits and pollsters can be absolutely wrong about the outcomes of elections and they will be back the next day with more polls and predictions. Nice work, right?

"Two Paths - America Divided or United" by John Kasich

Last year our Ohio Governor John Kasich mounted an unsuccessful campaign to try to secure the nomination to become his party's candidate in our 2016 presidential election. The political neophyte and outsider candidate Donald Trump steamrolled his opposition and went on to win the race for the presidency. Throughout the GOP primaries John Kasich distinguished himself as a voice of reason during candidate debates.

The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, nestled in a beautiful stretch of public parks that mark the confluence of the Stillwater and Great Miami Rivers, is a popular destination for families to learn about science and the natural world. But many Miami Valley residents are unaware that behind the scenes, the museum has an extensive collection of artifacts from around the world. Community Voices producer Renee Wilde takes us there.
