First for September 30, 2016

First Look
The impact of Hurricane Sandy is still seen in Delaware nearly 4 years after the storm hit. While the Jersey shore gets most of the attention, there are some critical areas of the Delaware Bay which still need help.

First Person
Lisa Blunt Rochester is new to elective office, but not the process of government. But how will her message play across Delaware in her run as the Democratic candidate for Congress?

Cancer awareness
October is breast cancer awareness month. It’s one thing to focus on prevention, but this week First reports on ways to stay healthy after treatment.

A Call to Service
This weekend marks the end of our Veterans Coming Home project, but it doesn’t end our reporting of veterans issues. This week we introduce you to a man who saw military service later in life as a way to stay connected with his public service.

First Experience
Thinking about going to the Hockessin Fall Festival at the end of October? Then you’ll want to know about the work of Larry Anderson.


Program reminder: WHYY and WDEL radio will present a debate with the democratic and republican candidates for Congress. Join us in the audience at Widener University’s Delaware Law school on Thursday October 13th at 8am. Or watch coverage on Thursday October 13th at 5pm.
