Wendell Castle revolutionized the art world. The Holton, Kansas, native was known as the father of the studio furniture movement of the 1960s and 1970s. He mostly made chairs that looked like sculptures ... and the only shop class he ever had was in seventh grade. He died last week at age 85; hear his story and what he meant to the art world.

Then: we've been hearing a lot about the flu this year, and yikes. Missouri is the most flu-ridden state with Kansas coming in right behind it. Yikes again. A local doctor and a health reporter tell us all about it.
