We’ll also look ahead to important changes in the tax code for 2013, especially those which affect small businesses. And more. Linda Gassenheimer’s Food & Dining . . . with wine columnist Fred Tasker and “Dinner in Minutes.” That’s Topical Currents, Thursday at one o’clock on WLRN.
It may surprise some of you but I used to be quite shy when it came to going into restaurants and trying dishes and ingredients I had not known growing up, (as I had) in a small town in Northern Illinois.

On Sunday, April 7th, Florida will celebrate its first official “Everglades Day.” Established by the Florida Legislature, Everglades Day honors South Florida’s unique wetland ecosystem, the wild inhabitants who live there and all the passionate Floridians working to conserve this magical place.
As a tribute, WLRN will run a month-long TV and radio series entitled, "Guardians of the Everglades" which will profile people from a variety of different backgrounds but who are bound by a common desire to save our state's national treasure for future generations.
