New Illinois Raw Milk Guidelines; A Misting Flu Vaccine; Higher Ed Funding

On The 21st: New regulations for the sale of raw milk in Illinois go into effect July 1 - but raw milk producers and consumers are not happy about it. We'll talk with a producer of raw milk, someone to explain the new guidelines and representatives from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Center for Disease Contol and Prevention about why they believe raw milk is a risky thing to conumer. Plus, the flu vaccine can now be taken as a mist rather than a shot, but some don't believe it's as effective. And we'll look at higher Education Funding in Illinois as we come close to opening another fiscal year with no budget in the state.

Van Dyke ‘Steps In Time’ Before The Home Crowd

Friday night's sellout performance marked the start of fundraising efforts for the Dick Van Dyke Foundation.
