From The Headlines - Next Stop, Virginia Beach?

Posted by: susan 9/13/2010 6:45 PM

Monday, September 13

Since voters rejected light rail in 1999, Virginia Beach city council members have been squeamish to endorse The Tide as a transportation priority. More than 10 years later, council is still having a hard time with getting behind, or in front of efforts to bring light rail to the city. Is the next stop a referendum? We'll discuss that possibility, and more local headlines on today's HearSay.

How friendly are the skies for you nowadays?  The air travel industry has made some not-so-desirable headlines lately.

Breaking Up: Divorce Decisions

Posted by: danny 9/9/2010 5:42 PM

Thursday, September 9

Divorce is a painful reality for many couples and their families. It's really a three part process - legal, financial and emotional - and used to mean a long and drawn out courtroom process. For that reason, many couples are turning to collaborative divorce, a process that's gaining momentum in Virginia and across the nation. Collaborative divorce  is different because it's a method that tackles the legal, emotional and financial aspects of divorce by bringing couples, attorneys, mediators and family counselors together. We'll discuss how collaborative divorce works with attorney Mary Commander, mediator Karen Richards and financial planner Lonnie Broussard - all three of whom were instrumental in bringing collaborative divorce to Virginia.
