In the Spring, No Winter, No Spring Garden with Jim Orband
Elsewhere in the country, snowfall on the first day of Spring might be considered strange, but it's business as usual here in Hampton Roads.  The frenetic weather can make it hard for gardeners to plan and even harder for gardens to survive.  Thankfully our gardening guru, Jim Orband, is here to coach you through the mad weather of March.

Today on HearSay, Cathy Lewis continues our series of conversations with the presidents of our region's community colleges.  As the cost of college attendance continues to rise, and the job market remains uncertain, two-year colleges are an increasingly valuable resource for students just out of high school or boomers looking to jump-start an encore career.  Join us for a look at how the Virginia Community College System is preparing our region's students for a brighter future.

American Graduate: Education Reform in Virginia
Early last year, The Virginia Association of School Superintendents crafted a blueprint for educational reform in Virginia.  The document provides a comprehensive analysis of the direction the Commonwealth's educational system is headed in and, more importantly, what it will take to get there.  One of the largest components of that plan is technology, more specifically mobile connectivity and distance based learning.  Today on HearSay we examine how one local school division's utilization of cutting edge technology is drawing nationwide attention.

Scheduled Guests:

Dr. Eric Williams
- Superintendent, York County School Division

David Houle
- Futurist, Author, Entering the Shift Age
