As many know, Tom is intimately involved with the annual Boy's State government learning program for aspiring high school students. He was recently questioned if he would share some of his knowledge on how government works (or is supposed to) and how bills become law, so he does so in the first segment. Lon shares remodeling trends in the industry and both Tom and Lon speak to the issues of "aging in place" and how to plan ahead in order to remain in your home in the later years.
