Baltimore County is juggling three different proposed calendars for the 2017-2018 school year. One of them would start school before Labor Day; two would start it after the holiday. The school board held a public hearing on the calendar Tuesday night. WYPR’s John Lee joined Nathan Sterner during Morning Edition Wednesday to explain what happened and why there are three calendars.

A poll released Monday by Goucher College found that Marylanders are increasingly divided over whether the state should ban hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking.

The state’s moratorium on the practice is set to end in October 2017, when the Department of the Environment plans to begin issuing drilling licenses.

WYPR’s John Lee joins Morning Edition host Nathan Sterner to talk about the changes and to tie it all to Governor Larry Hogan’s executive order to start school after Labor Day.
