Insight: Arena Plans Approved / Science Olympiad / Donna Reads / Bob Ringwald



Last night, the Sacramento City Council voted 7-to-2 to approve a downtown arena development plan. Today on Insight, we’ll hear reaction from Sacramento Kings President and CEO Chris Granger and talk with Sacramento City Manager John Shirey about what happens next. 



A team of science-whiz students from Churchill Middle School are competing at the Science Olympiad National Tournament May 16-17. For 30 years, Science Olympiad has made science education fun and exciting for middle school and high school students across the country. We will speak with the head coach and two of his top competitors about their events and how to make kids excited about pursuing STEM careers.

A new book and an upcoming conference have Capital Public Radio’s Donna Apidone thinking about dreams. In this month’s Donna Reads, we’ll learn more about “The Passionate Art of Nancy Richter Brzeski.”
