You don’t need a degree in economics to figure out that just about everything costs more than it did a year ago. Inflation is costing the average consumer about $40 bucks a week. For government agencies building large public works projects, like Wichita’s $500 million dollar water treatment plant, it’s an even more expensive problem. KMUW's Kylie Cameron takes a look at how inflation affects these projects.

Also, Eleaser Ewans is a fairly new driver with Wichita Transit. But a bus isn’t the biggest thing she’s driven. Beth Golay talked with Ewans about her transition from trucker to bus driver for this month’s En Route.
