It’s that “most wonderful time of year” where every school in America is preparing a holiday musical program for the community.

In Vero Beach, Saint Edward’s School is preparing their Festival of Lessons & Carols for December 6th. It’s free and open to the public.

We dropped in on a rehearsal with 8 of the 45 total singers who will perform. They had just started their vocal warmups.

AB: I’m Anthony Baron and I am the Director of Choral Music at Saint Edward’s School.

We asked him: What exactly is a Festival of Lessons & Carols?

Last month, 1500 students ranging from elementary to high school, descended upon the Indian River Lagoon, testing water quality, and taking count of plants and animals, as part of a-multi county event called A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON.

MW: “Such a nice way to have an impact on so many different students at one time and to give them the opportunity to get their hands wet, feet dirty, collect that authentic scientific data.”

That’s Missy Weiss, founder of the non-profit S.E.A. a Difference …

A simple idea and swift action by two soccer moms is about to help a lot of kids in Puerto Rico.

LR: “I had this idea because both my kids – I have 6-year-old twins (who) play soccer at IRSA”

That’s Vero Beach native Laura Radocaj talking about the Indian River Soccer Association. She and fellow soccer mom Stephanie Dilella are collecting and about to ship an over-abundance of soccer uniforms to Puerto Rico, where hundreds of children who want to play soccer are ready to receive them!

More than four millennia after being chiseled by Egyptian artisans, the intricate hieroglyphics and stone carvings of an ancient tomb have been uncovered.

Egyptian officials made the announcement Saturday at the site of the discovery in Saqqara, outside of Cairo, according to multiple media reports. Photographs of the tomb show a narrow doorway leading to a rectangular room, its walls covered with carved symbols, images and human forms. Particularly striking are their well-preserved colors – light yellows, rich blues and a reddish-brown skin tone.

SCOTT SIMON, HOST:

Friday night's rainfall in Washington, D.C., has elevated 2018 to the wettest year on record for the nation's capital, and the rain is expected to continue throughout the weekend.

The National Weather Service announced the rainfall record was surpassed at 6:26 a.m. on Saturday. So far, 61.34 inches of rain have fallen in Washington this year, breaking a record set in 1889 of 61.33 inches.

An additional inch or so of rain may fall through Sunday, pushing the tally even higher.

President Trump called a Friday ruling striking down the Affordable Care Act "Great news for America!" Democratic lawmakers rushed to decry the decision, calling it "monstrous" and "harmful." And Republican lawmakers remained mostly quiet Saturday.

In September 2016, the town of East Liverpool, Ohio, captured national attention when a photo of a local couple's overdose went viral. It showed a woman and her boyfriend sprawled comatose in the front seats of a car, while the woman's 4-year-old grandson sat in the back. The image was originally posted by the local police department. Overnight, East Liverpool, a town of just over 11,000 people, became the face of the opioid crisis enveloping parts of the country.
