This week's Looking Back shares some little known local history of turkey herding. Tom Cairns provides another snapshot of our northcoast past.

In an unusual weekend session, the U.S. Senate advances to a final vote on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Watch the proceedings live.

KHSU listeners raised more than $3250 for the station in just over an hour to meet the Wildberries Food Challenge Friday morning.

Listener contributions were matched dollar-for-dollar by Wildberries Marketplace and are given in food to Food for People. The food donations are used to supply Food for People's "Backpacks for Kids" weekend food program for school aged children facing food insecurity.

Thank you everyone who helped us make this goal!

The former head of security for the Senate intelligence committee pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI on Monday in federal court in Washington, D.C.

James Wolfe had been charged with three such counts, but he reached a plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney's office in exchange for leniency and to avoid a trial.

Wolfe was permitted to remain free until he's scheduled to return to court on Dec. 20 to be sentenced; he faces as many as six months in prison.

President Donald Trump weighed in on Monday morning about the case of disappeared journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

It's a major milestone in the fight to recognize mental health and mental illness as global issues: a comprehensive report from the Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health, three years in the making, released this past week at a London summit with royals Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, in attendance to show their support for the cause.

But it was not a celebratory event. Threaded throughout the 45-page report is a lament that the world is ignoring millions of suffering people.
