A look back at the top stories and features from the Tri States Public Radio news department from May 2012.
During the month, former Macomb High School teacher and coach Daniel Watson and former Hamilton School Board member Dion Gregory both learned their sentences for inappropriate conduct with minors. A Burlington man was sentenced for starting a fire at a church in that town. Four young people from Burlington were killed when two boats collided on the Mississippi River.
Rich Egger's guest is Civil Rights leader C.T. Vivian, who grew up in Macomb. Dr Vivian was back in town to speak at the Dealing With Difference Institute at Western Illinois University.
Vivian was a close friend of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. and worked alongside him during the American Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and '60s. He said the world does not change unless people get involved.
