A judge in Indiana has ruled that the state’s right-to-work law violate’s the Indiana constitution.
 
On today’s show, we ask if the ruling could have implications for Michigan's new right-to-work law.
 
We also spoke to a man trying to create a place of healing in the Michigan outdoors for U.U. veterans.
 
But first on the show, it isn't every day when the President of the United States turns to you for advice, but Flint's Mayor Dayne Walling is now in that relatively small group who can say exactly that.
 
Mayor Walling was among 18 mayors who sat down in a White House meeting with President Obama. The topic: how to reduce violence among young people -- something Dayne Walling is faced with every single day.
 
That's because Flint is among the top U.S. cities of more than 50,000 people with the worst crime rates.
 
Mayor Dayne Walling joined us today.
