"Clintonomics" / Medical Librarian / River City Rockumentary


"Clintonomics"   We often hear that this is the worst economy since at least the early '80s, and perhaps since the '30s, but things looked very different for most of the '90s. Under President Clinton, the US economy expanded greatly and the federal government deficit became a surplus. What lesson, if any, can be learned from that time? What forces combined to create Clinton's economic policies? What is Clinton's economic legacy? These questions are explored in a new book, "Clintonomics." We'll talk with author and Sacramento State political scientist Jack Goodwin.

Jack Godwin is signing books at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 21st at Barnes and Noble, 3561 N. Freeway Blvd., Natomas.

Medical Librarian  Chances are you've gone online to learn about an illness or injury, but how do you know what information you can trust? There's a free medical library in Sacramento that can help. You'll meet librarian Theresa Johnson.

River City Rockumentary  Sacramento's long rock and roll history includes a good helping of successful and varied artists. It's the subject of a documentary premiering tonight on Sacramento's public television station. The program is called "River City Rock History" and we'll talk to some of the featured musicians and the producer.

"River City Rock History" airs at 7 p.m. today on KVIE Channel 6 in Sacramento. An encore presentation will air at 6 p.m. Sunday, March 22nd.
