As people scramble to meet the April 15 tax-filing deadline, this week we'll bring you a show on debt. We'll meet a woman grappling with $200,000 in college loans, and hear about a new program to better help people finance their educations. We'll also learn why mortgage scams are on the rise in our region, and we'll hear from a veteran who's been carrying a debt of gratitude for decades.
