The housing market also heats up as spring turns to summer. Contributor Eileen Dallabrida checks in with local experts to see what the prospects are for buyers and sellers this year.

 A new survey of beehive colonies shows that Delaware has one of the highest rates of colony loss in the country.  We delve into those numbers and what can be done to in response.

 And in this week's Enlighten Me, Our Eli Chen takes us to Delaware's first ever beauty pageant to single mothers.
