There will be an all-around "celebration of the arts" this Friday at the Missouri Theatre in Columbia! Director JOY POWELL says the 15th annual Chancellor's Arts Showcase will feature a little something for everyone, from jazz performances to familiar show tunes. Also, SUSAN COOK-WILLIAMS is looking for anyone willing to come help build nine houses in four months. (Yes, you read that correctly.) It's all part of River City Habitat for Humanity's upcoming 'Blitz Build' in Jefferson City. Four of the houses constructed will benefit those affected by last year's tornado.

ANAND CHOCKALINGAM, MU Health Care, tells us that 90% of heart disease is caused by stress, and is therefore preventable. The key is making permanent lifestyle changes. He says, "my interest is not to help a patient in 2018, but in 2022, 2025; ten years, fifteen years down the road." January 2, 2018
