Featured on the June 20th, 2019 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- Nancy Montoya reports on a new facility being built by the Kino Border Initiative in Nogales, Sonora that could provide housing and support services for as many as 150 migrants seeking asylum in the United States.
- Learn how a recent ecological mystery at the Tucson Mission Garden led to the discovery that several species of bat are visiting the garden every night in search of food. Mark talks with bat biologist Debbie Buecher and her husband and co-researcher Bob Buecher, and gets a pair of short stories from Tucsonans about close encounters with bats.
- And, the goal of the new StoryCorps initiative "One Small Step" is to bring people from different backgrounds together to share how their personal experiences shape their views on politics and social issues. Listen to a conversation between Kirk Reed and Andy Baker, as they discover similarities including how they are guided by their faith and open to learning from others. If you'd like to participate in "One Small Step, you can find the survey here.
