Spring planting is embedded in our DNA – when the days get longer, the weather warmer, and we know it’s time to take stock of the greening of our piece of the garden.  When it comes to fall, some people are vaguely aware of pumpkins and gourds and, perhaps, cabbage, but there's a great deal more to take advantage of with the cooler, rainier weather.

When it comes to memories, the most impactful remembrances are often triggered by the most ordinary of physical objects. In Shane Fernando's case, memories of his Sri Lankan grandmother are warmed by the light of his father's coconut oil lamp. The lamp tells a story of not only Shane's memories, but also the legacy his father's family.

Listener Beverly wrote on Monday: "Cokie Roberts is just the latest NPR commentator offending my husband and me. We listen to NPR for news. We do not listen for an individual commentator's personal assessment.
“To be biased without even realizing it...for example, in asking a leading question...is sometimes understandable. Cokie makes no excuses for imposing her opinions. Whatever happened to journalistic principles? Is she not a journalist? She seems to be a lifelong politician which is contrary to the Jeffersonian principle of public service by citizens across the board as citizen duty...not public/political careers.

Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Mike Pence is known for his record as a conservative Republican and Tea Party supporter.  At a rally in Leland Wednesday afternoon, Pence explained his running mate’s sometimes-controversial off-the-cuff remarks. 

WHQR’s Gina Gambony visited the rally for Vice-Presidential Candidate Mike Pence in Leland yesterday. There she met two people selling Trump-Pence schwag. Robert and Angel were selling Trump T-shirts, hats, and buttons at the entryway of the Mike Pence rally Wednesday in Leland.  Angel's only been with the Trump campaign for about a month and a half, and she's mainly focused on the merchandise. Listen above.

Alligators call North Carolina home – but it’s a cold home for them – and until recently the state was considered the northernmost part of their habitat in the United States. We find out on this edition of CoastLine whether that’s still the case. And we explore the implications of human encroachment on alligator habitat – how it’s affecting this species and whether it’s posing an increased risk of danger for humans, particularly in light of the June alligator attack at a Disney resort in Florida that killed a two-year-old boy.

Artists Candy Pegram and Kirah Van Sickle are opening Insider/Outsider: Art Two Ways in WHQR's MC Erny Gallery on Friday, 8/26 as a part of 4th Friday Gallery Walk. These 2 very different artists decided to have an inspiration for each piece of art in the exhibit and each make a piece based on that inspiration.

It's that time again-the Landfall Foundation is holding its 17th annual Art Show & Sale. Foundation Board president Marilyn Gunther and artist & organizer Jenny Wright joined us to tell a little bit about the show-but not too much.
