Jeff Salkin and Sloane Brown host this weekly program on "people, places, and issues" from around Maryland, with this episode focusing on education, the construction of a Redskins stadium, information technology initiatives, and charitable giving. Maureen McNeill reports the first segment on Wicomico County Public Schools and O.U.R. Community, which includes interviews with Randolph Outen (Executive Director, O.U.R. Community), Bruce Wharton and Richard Hazel (O.U.R. Community members), Annie Hall and Tywanna Taylor (high school students), Allen Brown (Director of Student Services, Wicomico County), Warren White (Wicomico NAACP President),  Luis Luna (Executive Director, Greater Salisbury Committee), and Michael Finegan (clinical psychologist). This is followed by Annette Gibbs-Davis reporting on the effect of desegregation guidelines on schools in Prince George's County, including interviews with Inez Sadler (Principal, P.G. County school), Earnest Jenkins (Principal, P.G. Council of PTA), Wayne Curry (P.G. County Executive), Alvin Thornton (P.G. County School Board member), and Sylvester Vaughn (desegregation supporter). Brown speaks with Dr. Joyce Epstein of the Center on Families, Communities, Schools, and Children's Learning at Johns Hopkins on the center's partnership with local schools. During the segment "It's Your Call," Maryland residents offer opinions on whether public or private education is better for children. Next, Karen Allyn reports on plans to fund a new football stadium for the Washington Redskins in Prince George's County, featuring statements from Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke, Gov. Parris Glendening, and attorney Stan Derwin Brown. This leads to a "Diner's Debate" between David Paulson and Carol Arscott on whether Maryland is right to fund stadiums instead of schools. Changing topics, Salkin introduces a segment on how Maryland is trying to stay up to date with information technology, including interviews with Major Riddick (Chief of Staff) and Mike Langehr (Information Technology Chief). Debbie Wright reports on charitable giving, which includes statements from Billie Williams and Elizabeth Credell (BARC participants), Stephen H. Morgan (Executive Director, BARC), Bishop L. Robinson (Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services), and John T. Willis (Secretary of State, Maryland). The episode concludes with clips of children at a celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations.
