Detecting Diabetes with Eye Exams Eye exams can detect chronic diseases like diabetes sometimes up to seven years before symptoms are present.  We'll ask VSP Optometrist Dr. Stephanie Kirschbaum how eye exams detect diseases, and what regular eye exams may mean for disease prevention.  Rancho Cordova based VSP Vision Care is the nation's largest not-for-profit vision care company.  It's urging the United Nations General Assembly to put more pressure on developing nations to perform eye exams as a means to prevent disease. 
 
Rob Fong on Arena Issues The Think BIG arena task force and city of Sacramento are butting up against some difficult issues as the deadline to build an entertainment and sports complex creeps up.  Caltrans is worried about traffic on Interstate 5.  A city report has outlined a number of costly infrastructure upgrades that need to be complete before construction can begin.  And there's still a shortage of parking spaces downtown.  We'll speak with Think BIG Executive Committee Member and City Councilman Rob Fong.
 
Judy Collins For more than 50 years, Judy Collins has thrilled people with her interpretative folksongs. We'll talk to her before she performs at Grass Valley's Center For the Arts on Sunday.
