President Trump named his latest nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court this week, tapping Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

This pick is considered a crucial one because, if confirmed, the 53 year old Kavanugh,  a conservative, will replace Justice Kennedy, often a swing vote in 5-4 decisions

So, what do we know about Kavanugh?  What impact could he have on the direction of the Supreme Court – and what can we expect to see in his confirmation hearings.    Widener Univ. Delaware Law School dean Rod Smolla, who’s argued before the Supreme Court, offered his take on those questions and more.

Gov. John Carney is poised to sign a bill allowing for creation of a statewide system of care for drug overdose patients.

Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino reports the goal of this system would be to offer the same quality of care to anyone suffering from an overdose no matter where in the state they enter the system.

This week’s Enlighten Me returns to our Generation Voice Youth Media project at WMPH and Mount Pleasant High School in the Brandywine School District.

As the school year ended, some of the younger students in the program were asked to produce a commentary offering a snapshot of their state of mind as they wrapped up another year and looked ahead to the summer and next fall.
