D.C. Public Schools are in the spotlight once again after another scandal leads to the Chancellor's resignation. No women represent Maryland in Congress, but five have been chosen as candidates for Lt. Governor.

People living under the flight paths of planes leaving from Reagan National Airport have complained for years about overhead noise. At issue is a new Federal Aviation Administration program called NextGen, a multi-billion-dollar push to update the the national air traffic system from a primarily radar-driven system to a satellite one. While the program is meant to reduce emissions, save fuel and speed up departures, some local residents are upset about what they say is an increase in noise from departing flights. A group of Washington, D.C. residents have taken legal action against the FAA, and now the U.S Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia will decide on the future of the flight paths. We speak with a reporter covering the case and a D.C. resident concerned about overhead noise.
