Tom Martin, Host of Eastern Standard and Focus on Business

This week, Eastern Standard looks at a new report that focuses on ways to help young Kentucky parents overcome challenges. 

Host Tom Martin talks to University of Kentucky's Special Collections Librarian Reinette Jones, the curator and creator of the Notable Kentucky African Americans Database.

WEKU's Stu Johnson gives us details on the importance of the recent mock chemical weapons disaster drill at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond.

And, our monthly installment of the "Humans of Central Appalachia" series takes us to the coal town of Eckman, West Virginia, and a visit with the first African American mine safety inspector, William "Buck" Wade.
