Volunteers have been busy preparing for the Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving Day luncheon. The event will be held on Thursday from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. and is free and open to anyone in need. It is expected to feed about 3,000 people, and more volunteers are needed to help on Thursday.
Daily Journal food editor Ginna Parsons (14:48) joins Brad and guest co-host Emma Kent on today’s episode to talk about the luncheon, efforts to prepare for it and how you can volunteer.
Also, Daily Journal Capitol Bureau chief Bobby Harrison (23:15) talks about efforts by state leaders to advocate for a tax on internet transactions. Both Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood and Republican Governor Phil Bryant — who disagree on most issues — are calling for the U.S. Supreme Court to rule in favor of Colorado’s attempt to collect such a tax.
Bobby discusses why state leaders want the tax and what options are available if the Supreme Court does not side with them.
Bobby (27:58) also looks at U.S. Senator Roger Wicker’s role as chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the work he did to help Republicans maintain a majority in the Senate.
Meanwhile, Daily Journal photographer Lauren Wood (32:26) talks about her recent experience photographing a New Albany couple that raises llamas. That photo essay can also be found in today’s paper.
Reminder: Due to the Thanksgiving holidays, today’s show is the only episode that will be released this week. We will resume our normal schedule next Monday, Nov. 28.
