Studio 619 for June 3, 2007

Metro Council interviews

In this week’s show, Studio 619 brings you the latest three interviews in our series of conversations with Louisville’s Metro Council members. This week, we talked with District Nineteen Councilman Hal Heiner, District Twenty Councilman Stuart Benson, and District Twenty-One Councilman Dan Johnson.

Churchill Weavers

Churchill Weavers was once a famous textile manufacturer. Now, the Berea, Kentucky business lives on in a museum exhibit. Kentucky Public Radio’s Tony McVeigh reports from Frankfort.

Interfaith Paths to Peace

Four Louisville residents traveled to the Middle East earlier this year to get a first-hand look at the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians. The men traveled with Interfaith Paths to Peace, and spent two weeks overseas.

They visited Jerusalem, the West Bank and Jordan, among other places. They sat down with WPFL’s Rick Howlett to talk about the trip.

Bashar Masri is an American citizen of Palestinian descent who was born and raised in the West Bank. Mark Issacs is a Jewish-American who has lived and studied in Israel. Terry Taylor is a Quaker and the director of Interfaith Paths to Peace.
