Tom Hogan, the event coordinator for Tucson's Oktoberfest, talked about the traditional harvest festival being held Sept. 27-30 at Hi Corbett Field. The 11th annual Oktoberfest is a family event that benefits many local charities, he said.

State Sen. Frank Antenori, an incumbent candidate for newly drawn LD10, joined John for a lively interview in which he made his case for re-election. Antenori talked about fiscal conservatism, job creation, business incentives, and defended cuts to education funding.

Jim Kuliesh, the president of the Alliance of Construction Trades, called in from the community forum "Uniting Against Metal Theft," an effort to address the growing problem of metal theft.
