Imagine being able to get to Chicago in less than half an hour?  That's the goal of a proposed Hyperloop route linking the two Great Lakes cities.  The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency has partnered with a West Coast firm to study the possibility of such a route and whether it can be pulled off. A  number of area public and private organizations are already on board.  We'll discuss Hyperloop with some of the key players in this high-tech travel plan.  Are we on the cusp of a new age of transportation?  Then, what does the future hold for some of FirstEnergy's power plants?  We'll discuss what could be a pivotal month ahead for the energy giant's power plant subsidary.  Plus the latest from the statehouse in Columbus.
