Did you know it's Light Pollution Week? The Totescast does. More on that in a minute, but up first is Fleet Service's ongoing disposal scandal, which travels further up the tire tread than first known.

Richard Whittaker drops by afterward to she some light (get it?) on the aforementioned pollution problem, then it's on to the outcome of City Council's recycling debate last week. Rounding things out, a look at Laura Hall and Leonardo Quintana's respective legal troubles. As always, Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar demand order in the court.
