Safe Waters and 'Savings Sunday'
Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Summer in coastal Virginia means time spent along the water, but a little-known bacteria that thrives in brackish, coastal waters could put you and your family at risk. Today's guest host, Joe Flanagan, will learn about the risks posed by Vibrio vulnificus, a bacteria found in areas with a mixture of fresh and saltwater, such as at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay — that thrives in warmer temperatures. We'll hear a first-hand account from one Chesapeake Bay waterman that nearly lost his life to Vibriosis! And later, the original "frugal chick," Laura Oliver drops in with her favorite opportunities for big summer savings!

Today's Guests:
Dr. Wirt Cross - Surgeon at Riverside Surgical Specialists
Doug Jenkins, Sr - Local waterman that overcame Vibriosis
Laura Oliver - Coupon blogger

Let's Keep It Civil
Monday, July 10, 2017

2017 Virginia Association of Broadcasters Award for Best Documentary or Public Affairs Program

Civility is more about more than being nice, or polite. It is about finding common ground in the midst of our differences and expressing disagreement without disrespect. Today we'll consider why civility seems to be vanishing from our day to day interactions, be they on-line or face-to-face. Do you find yourself having a hard time remaining civil in the midst of fierce disagreements? Join us today with your experiences...

Master of the Queen's Household

Master of the Queen's Household
Thursday, July 6, 2017

 

2017 Virginia Association of Broadcasters Award for Outstanding Feature Reporting
Cathy dropped in this past summer on an old friend with a new job. Royal Navy VADM Tony Johnstone-Burt was to have spent three years in Norfolk as Chief of Staff to NATO’s Supreme Allied Command Transformation, but two years into the job, he got a call that would change his life: please come home for a meeting with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. Weeks later, he became the “Master of the Household to the Sovereign,” the operational head of the Royal Household. In a wide ranging conversation in London at St. James Palace (built 1531-1536 by Henry VIII), Cathy asked VADM Johnstone-Burt about life as a trusted member of the Royal family and his family’s fondest memories of Norfolk. (Spoiler alert: the shared joy of Doumars may have been discussed!)
