VENTSday: Tribal Casinos + Graduation Rates


Everybody has something to say about the Coquille Tribe's plan for a casino in Medford, it seems.  Tuesday night features a public input meeting in Medford, and we'll have one of our own on VENTSday, live on Wednesday morning.

And that's only one hot topic for this week.  The other: our high school graduation rates (72% for Oregon, 80% in California) and how to bring them up.

VENTSday is our weekly forum for you to vent (politely) on topics in the news.  We bring the topics, you bring the opinions.

We start right around 8:30 on Wednesday morning.  Take part by calling 1-800-838-3760 or by emailing jx@jeffnet.org.

This week's topics, again:

  • The tribal casino in Medford or ANY casino: for or against?
  • Graduation rates: making progress, or disheartening failure?

We'll talk to you on the air!
