It’s been a very mild winter so far in the Salt Lake Valley, which means a lot of dirt is visible in a lot of yards. KRCL’s Lara Jones went to Wasatch Community Gardens‘ annual “seed swap” to ask Just 1 Question: is it worth it to start a garden from seed? The answer comes from WCG’s Felicia Maxfield-Barrett.
Hosted by Lara Jones, The R.O.I. features stories of people, non-profits and businesses who create a positive return on investment in the community. Today the R.O.I focuses on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through the power of small acts by ordinary individuals. Meet Loki Mulholland, who says his mother is anything but ordinary. But he didn’t always know it. Listen to the story with the media player below:

The Martin Luther King holiday was a day to reflect and act on what Dr. King called “the cause of peace and brotherhood.” It’s become a day of service for many, a day of protest and call to action for others. But that’s one day a year. So I have just one question – how might we as individuals put Dr. King’s legacy into action everyday for ourselves? A marade – a march, rally and parade – at East High in Salt Lake City seemed like a good place to get answers on Martin Luther King Day (1/19/15). Here’s what people had to say:

RadioActive host Nick Burns had two guests on the show Sunday, January 18, 2015:
It’s winter, the inversion is in full effect, and we can all see, maybe even taste, the chunky gunk we’re breathing. So we have just one question: how can bike riders protect their lungs on a red air quality day? To find the answer, Lara Jones recently paid a visit to David Eyre Davis of the Bike Collective. He says cyclists may want to think pink.

Joining Nick and Karl is Mariah Williamson, one of his first scholarship recipients. (Producer: Shannalee Otanez.)
