First for August 11, 2017

    Migrant Education
    The summer agriculture economy in Delaware depends on migrant laborers. There are around 600 migrant workers who come to Delaware. Some bring their whole families. Their older kids sometimes join the parents in the fields and packing houses, but what about younger kids? They can get into a special scholastic camp. It’s a federal program that’s been around for a half century.

    First Person: Kevin Dombrowski
    First Person this week is Kevin Dombrowski. He’s heading up a new group called “Revitalize Delaware.” We talk with Kevin about the group, where their money is spent and their party affiliation.

    Markell Returns
    Jack Markell is sleeping in his own Delaware bed for the first time in almost two months. The former governor completed his cross-country bike ride for charity on Tuesday. He talks about his completed mission.

    Dace on Biz
    It’s no secret that healthcare costs drive up the state budget. In his monthly Dace on Business segment, Dace Blaskovitz talked to John Stapleford of DECON First about a new survey that breaks down those costs.

    First Experience: The art of Andrew Wyeth
    In 2009 the art world lost a real treasure, Andrew Wyeth. The Brandywine River Museum of Art is holding a retrospective of Andrew’s work celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth. The exhibit contains over 100 of the artist’s best works, from some of his early watercolors up to his last painting. It’s our First Experience this week.
