In this program, Tarone discusses the raising of the Wilkes Barre levees with Chris Belleman from the Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority. The other major topic of discussion is the alleged election fraud case regarding Eugene Gallagher who was running for a Taylor, PA council seat. You will hear tons of callers as well as L.A. Tarone doing what he did best, presenting great talk radio.
