The end of World War I, 97 years ago
To commemorate Armistice Day (11/11), KBOO news is taking a day off and we will be playing a special program: Sojourner Truth Radio.

Armistice day, marking the end of World War One 97 years ago. Between 1914 and 1918, 16 million men and women were killed, often for scraps of land no longer than a football field. While many gave into nationalistic pride, some remained steadfast in their fight for peace. We speak to activist and author Selma James about World War One and US socialist and 5 time presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs.

And, the Dallas 6. We speak to Shandre Delaney, mother of Carrington Keys, an incarcerated person in the Pennsylvania about her son s fight to end prisoner abuse at a State Correctional facility.

Thu, 06/04/2015
The Last Thursday shooting on NE 20th and Alberta St. has led to a police response that may do more harm than good.
          After people were seen taking selfies near the crime scene, two black men were arrested while helping one of the three shooting victims.
         In the meantime, the Portland Police Bureau is adding six new officers to its Gang Enforcement team. The Chief of Police says it will help curb the rise in gun violence.         
          Glenn Waco is a local rapper and one of the two people who was arrested. He spoke with KBOO's Alan Montecillo about police in Portland and the impact of gentrification.
          Waco is scheduled to appear in court on June 11. The rationale for his arrest is still unclear.

Denton Texas fracking ban overturned by state legislature

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 06/01/2015
The city of Denton, Texas passed a ban against hydraulic fracturing (fracking) last November. Despite being overspent 10 to 1 in campaign funding, the anti-fracking initiative passed by a wide margin of 18%, which included a majority of both Democratic and Republican voters. 

However, the Texas state legislature effectively overturned the ban by passing House Bill 40. The law also limits the ability of all Texas municipalities from regulating fracking within their city limits. 

Fracking has started back up in Denton. The Denton City Council meets Tuesday, June 2 to decide whether to repeal the ban. 

To find out more, KBOO's Ken Jones spoke with Cathy McMullen, president of the Denton Drilling Awareness Group.
