NPR Special Programming: Hanukkah Lights

Hanukkah Lights for 2011 presents a collection of specially commissioned works — brand-new stories in which a bookish schoolboy finds a troublesome streak of defiance, a young woman finds a rewarding new life while confronting sudden tragedy, and a few desperate men find miraculous comfort in a quiet ceremony of light — all read by Susan Stamberg and Murray Horwitz, in a program that launches the third decade of this annual holiday favorite.

Uranium Mining

A report was released recently on the economic and environmental impact of lifting the state’s uranium mining moratorium. Proponents of the moratorium, including the City of Virginia Beach, fear water contamination and other environmental dangers. Mining officials say their industry is safe when properly regulated and promise an economic boon for an area of the state in desperate need. On today’s broadcast, we’ll examine both sides of this issue.
 
Guests:
Patrick Wales, Virginia Uranium's project manager

Thousands of juveniles are held in correctional centers throughout the state, awaiting trial or serving their sentences. A new report by the Annie E.

On today’s broadcast, we’ll talk with experts and advocates working in the juvenile jail system about the report and take a look at ways local communities can serve at-risk children.
