WYSO Weekend: September 23, 2018

Sep 23, 2018

Today we begin season four of Veterans Voices - stories about local military veterans produced by student veterans at Wright State University. The American military is very diverse, and it’s where many men and women first learn how to build relationships with people from different cultures. Army veteran David Berry of Springfield was raised in America and Navy veteran Pyotr Dobrotvorsky of Yellow Springs was raised in Russia. Our series begins with a conversation between these two veterans about the differences and similarities of their native countries, and of themselves.


That was Navy veteran Pyotr Dobrotvorsky and Army veteran David Berry. Veterans Voices is produced in collaboration with the Veteran and Military Center at Wright State University. This series is supported by Wright-Patt Credit Union


We tend to think of world war one as soldiers stuck in muddy trenches. But there was also fierce fighting in the sky - and this weekend the National Museum of the United States Air Force commemorates the first time airplanes were used for war. Aviation commentator Dan Patterson has more on the Dawn Patrol Rendezvous.


During the early 1800s, wheat production made Ohio one of the leading grain-growing states in the U.S. As prairie land was settled and major wheat growing moved westward, the grain became less important to the state’s agricultural economy. Corn and soybeans became the staple of Ohio Agriculture, and now wheat fields are few and far between in the Ohio countryside. When the bakers at Dorothy Lane Market wanted to find sources of locally raised wheat for their artisanal bread and other bakery items, a trio of local farmers looked to the history books and found a solution. Today on County Lines, Producer Renee Wilde breaks bread with those three Waynesville friends.
