CemeteryWe discuss the cemeteries of Mecklenburg County.  We are surrounded by the memories and the remains of those who lived in Mecklenburg County before us, going all the way back to the founders of our community.  As development continues, disputes will arise over historic cemeteries or any cemetery in the path of a projected develpment or other project.  Cemeteries also get discovered all the time.  We’ll learn about the laws governing and protecting cemeteries and the options families have when a cemetery has to be moved.

Wednesday, March 26, Playing for Others / Spring Allergies

March 25, 2008 at 11:58 am | Posted in On Air | 2 Comments

Spring BlossomsTwo women with an eye for helping kids teach kids, join us for a conversation about a unique organization called Playing for Others, Inc.  It’s a way for teenagers to mingle with and work with less advantaged kids on a full scale theater production.  The kids do it all, while learning valuable lessons about teamwork and not judging others based on their apparent disability.
In the second half of the show we talk to experts about the onslaught of spring’s allergies and how to manage them.
