This week on WYSO Curious –we answer two listener questions about tornados.

First question:  Why is the Miami Valley a tornado hotspot?  And secondly:  How does the National Weather Service go about alerting us when a tornado is approaching?  WYSO Curious intern Liam Niemeyer starts his search for answers in Clinton County – near Wilmington.

You can see where the National Weather Service station is in Wilmington miles before you reach it: A giant white ball towers above the farm fields in the area. And the locals have a name for it.

The courts offer nonviolent addicts a chance to avoid jail and get the services they need to stay clean and out of trouble for good—but it’s no easy fix.

"And this town hasn't taken any money from the government. They don't want any money from the government. They don't want any money. And I ask them why? They say God will provide. If we have faith, he will provide. We don't need it from the government," says Beck on his show.
