Jeff Salkin and Sloane Brown host this weekly program on "people, places, and issues" from around Maryland. This is the first program of the second season, featuring reports on the Ku Klux Klan in Frederick County, a new traveling museum, the construction of a new satellite in Maryland, and a profile of a librarian and storyteller. Roger Kelly, 41, of Rock Ridge, imperial wizard of the "Invincible Empire," a white separatist group is interviewed, along with Daryl Davis, 38, a Silver Spring musician who befriended Kelly and other Klan members. Davis was working on a book at the time (eventually published as “Klan-destine Relationships: A Black Man's Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan” in 1998). Col. David Mitchell, Maryland State Police, is interviewed about hate groups in Maryland. “The African-American Experience in Maryland,” a series of forums around the state featuring guest speakers, exhibits, workshops, storytelling, music, and dance, is shown. Dr. Dawn Cooper Barnes, a teacher at Howard Community College and founder of the Aurora Dance Company, is briefly interviewed. At the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, a 325 million-dollar satellite is being readied for launch that will spot missile launches from space but also study the atmosphere and global warming. Mary Berry, a teacher and librarian with 50 years in the Harford County public school system is honored. Other stories include: the controversy around a proposed new correctional facility near Clarksburg; 700 new jobs in Hagerstown; Gov. Glendening's call for volunteers to help clean up Terrapin Beach on Kent Island; research on the Ebola virus at the US Army Medical Research Institute at Fort Detrick in Frederick (Dr. Peter B. Jahrling is briefly interviewed). Reporters: Annette Gibbs-Davis, Karen Allyn, Ellen Beth Levitt, Dian Richards, Debbie Wright.
