The G.V. Sonny Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson has been under the microscope again in the last few weeks.  Testimony offered before a Congressional committee by VA employees accused the center of nepotism, privacy concerns and other issues.  Joe Battle has been director of the Center for over a year.  He visited our studios to answer some of the concerns, and talk about the future of the Sonny Montgomery VA.

Segment 3:
With Thanksgiving just days away, we wanted to get some healthy ideas for cooking a memorable meal with lots of flavor - and no guilt.  Of course we turned to Chef Rob Stinson of MPB's Fit To Eat.  He spoke with our Ezra Wall.
