In a rebroadcast from April 6, 2013, Dennis talks with Pete Flores, a Korean War veteran who is instrumental in attempting to find a home for the proposed El Paso Veterans Memorial & Museum. The building would be 2.5 stories tall and would be designed like a 5-pointed star, with each point representing a war: WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, and the Gulf. The museum would include memorabilia, posters, and video. Donations are strongly encouraged to make this project a reality. Call Pete Flores for more information: 915-309-3000.

The National Weather Service is warning, once again, that brutally cold weather is going to be spreading across much of the nation, from the upper Midwest down to the deep South and up through the mid-Atlantic, Northeast and New England.
The Weather Service even throws an exclamation point into its forecast for this week:
Federal Reserve officials are meeting this week to decide whether to continue easing up on economic stimulus measures. The pullback by the Fed so far is being felt around the world, especially in some emerging markets.

The political turmoil in Ukraine is spreading. Protests that began last fall when the country's president refused to sign a trade deal with the European Union - under pressure from its neighbor Russia - have now moved out of the capital.
