Also, we’re in the midst of another COVID summer. Regardless of the season or the number of variants, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Sewershed Surveillance project is hard at work, doing the dirty work of tracking the pandemic. Jeff Wenzel with DHSS tells us how the project started and expanded to 100 wastewater sites.

Then the clock is ticking on primary day in Kansas and Missouri, Tuesday, August 2. Eight Republicans and three Democrats are running to break through and win Missouri’s 7th Congressional District Seat. Six-term Congressman Billy Long decided to move on from the 7th and run for U.S. Senate. We’ll hear from the three Dem candidates at a recent townhall.
