Aging Population Creates Greater Need For Adult Protective Services; Remembering The Rubber Bowl

Featured Audio

President Trump has signed off on an executive order that would end the separation of families at the U-S Mexico border.  But Trump says the zero-tolerance policy toward those entering the country illegally will continue. Does the order help minimize political damage from the policy and the outrage it caused?   Then, the task of protecting our seniors is growing as the population ages.  We'll discuss the challenges faced by Adult Protective Services and what to watch for to spot elder abuse.  Then, we'll reminisce about Akron's iconic Rubber Bowl as demolition gets underway.
