It appears the second prong of the two-prong lawsuit challenging Delaware’s education funding system will see a trial early next year.

A month after the portion focused on the state and its funding method was settled, a March trial date is set for the portion focused on the county and its property tax system.

That system was ruled unconstitutional earlier this year by Chancery Court Vice Chancellor J. Travis Laster – but he deferred imposing a remedy. And that’s what will be at issue in the trial after no settlement was reached.

Contributor Larry Nagengast looks at what’s at stake in this trial

Thanksgiving is just days away, and with it the holiday shopping season.

But this is likely to be a holiday shopping season unlike any other as retailers and consumers try to navigate the coronavirus pandemic that has worsened in recent weeks.

Contributor Eileen Dallabrida give us a preview of what to expect from holiday shopping in 2020.

The Historic Odessa Foundation is offering its last art exhibit of the year.

“Oneness in Spirit: Art from the Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown,” is at Historic Odessa Visitors Center until December 30th.

The Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown, Maryland consists of five partners and three of them Evie Baskin, Bonnie Howell and Nancy Thomas join Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele for this week’s Arts Playlist to discuss the exhibit and their work.

The Wilmington Riverfront has spent decades trying to find its identity and build its viability. 

Recently, it got an unlikely boost from Joe Biden. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Biden was forced to accept the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in the parking lot outside the Chase Center on the Riverfront.  Then just two weeks ago, he celebrated becoming President-elect in that same spot.

That helped put the Wilmington Riverfront, and specifically the Chase Center, on the national radar.  Contributor Jon Hurdle examines how much the attention could help them.
