Shy Jackson and Mya Curtis, co-founders of Hope Restores, in the WIZM studio Wednesday for La Crosse Talk PM previewing this weekend’s Juneteenth celebration at Riverside Park, talking about the origins of Hope Restores and what that group means for the community.

After that, WIZM’s Brad Williams recaps Day 1 of the Joe Gow hearing on his future with UW-La Crosse, after the Board of Regents discovered he is producing pornographic videos with his wife. 

With the Hope Restores crew, we start off breaking down what's happening Saturday at Riverside Park with the Juneteenth celebration — bringing the kids for all kinds of free food and games from noon-3 p.m., and the party continues after that until 7 p.m. 

We also discuss how Hope Restores got started back in 2020 and some of the things they focus on, plus how involved the group can be when it comes to being leaders within the community, including representation on committees, councils and boards.

As for the Gow hearing, Williams talks about why it's happening, how the current chancellor, Betsy Morgan, and Gow got into it a little bit, plus what happens Thursday when things wrap up. Gow retains a teaching position at UW-L but is forbidden from being on campus at this point, though he retains his $80,000 salary.
