On Midwest Week, Rock Island may change some of its rules for how aldermen spend their discretionary city money. 

Herb Trix's guest is Sarah Hayden, reporter for the Dispatch and Rock Island Argus.

You can also hear Midwest Week Fridays on WVIK at 6:20 pm during All Things Considered. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
