Part One: Meeting Basic Human Needs
Earlier this week, a collaborative group of Charlotte Mecklenburg officials and community organizations held a community dialogue on meeting basic human needs in this economy. As a part of Charlotte Mission Possible, we’ll talk about what community members, local officials and organizations had to say about the needs of our community and what is being done to meet those needs.

Part Two: Bald Eagle Release
An injured bald eagle arrived at the Carolina Raptor Center a couple of months ago to undergo rehabilitation including surgeries and to gain back its lost strength. This weekend, the eagle will be released back into the wild. Mike will talk with the veterinarian who helped bring the bald eagle back into good health to find out how the rehabilitation and release process works and about how different birds respond to the process.
