WYSO Weekend: August 11, 2019


In this edition of WYSO Weekend:


In the early morning hours on August 4, 2019, a mass shooting in Dayton's Oregon Distrit took the lives of nine people and injured dozens of others. This edition of WYSO Weekend Today’s looks back at the long week since news of the shooting broke. Throughout the week that followed, WYSO reporters talked to some of people who make up a community that has been changed in some, perhaps undetermined, way. You'll hear from some those residents, and hear from those who believe the city of Dayton remains unchanged in the way that people come together in the face of tragedy.


We've got related reports from Ohio Public Radio and Bill Felker has this week's Poor Will's Almanack.
