    Your coverage of this story on the radio leaves much to be desired. Just a mention of thei item which was buried among lots of commercials and updates about the weather. Knowing someone who works in that area in a salon caused me a great deal of anxiety but no details were forthcoming. Even now I have been listening to the radio and heard another mention and no details.
