On March 2, 2012, the eastern Kentucky coal town of West Liberty was hit by an EF-3 tornado, which caused extensive damage to its downtown area, destroying homes and businesses, killing six people and injuring 75. Former two-term Kentucky State Treasurer Jonathan Miller joins us on Sounds Good to talk about a project to rebuild the town. (Click through to see videos of the tornado)

Some 1,500 activists have gathered, hoping to break down political gridlock.  Organizers say their ‘Meeting to Make America Work’ in New York City attracted Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.  They want to send a message to the President and Congress to ‘stop fighting and start fixing.’  So far, former Kentucky Treasurer Jonathan Miller says more than half million people and 25 members of Congress are involved in the effort.
