   ▪    We’ll talk with pollster Stuart Elway about a new survey of voters in Washington’s Fifth Congressional District: how do they feel about the congressional candidates in the race — Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Lisa Brown, particularly — seven months before the election? Spokane Public Radio is one of the participating media organizations.
    ▪    We’ll learn more about a federal Department of Health and Human Services training exercise in Spokane this week. The agency brought a huge, specially-equipped medical evacuation plane to practice how to move patients with the Ebola virus to regional care centers such as Sacred Heart.
    ▪    Steve Jackson talks about another big plane, a World War II-era B-17, which is making a visit to Felts Field this week.
    ▪    And we look ahead at our final “Plan Well, Age Well” program on Friday.
