"Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action" features two well-known, real-life siblings in a fanciful scenario. They play actors performing roles in a weekly movie about two young special agents whose adventures take them all over the world. Their sister "team" relationship is one in which cooperation, logical deduction, inventiveness and humor triumph. Mary-Kate and Ashley's friendship with a fellow team member, Chinese-American sixteen-year-old Rod Choi, is a close one, as is their relationship with Hispanic team member Ivan Quintero. Ivan is extremely gifted at technical and mathematical matters; his electronic inventions are a great asset to the team. In addition to problem-solving strategies each episode teaches children values such as honesty, perseverence, kindness and respect for differences. As girls engaged in active, adventurous stories Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are particularly good role models for our school-aged audience.

Ren's brains and superior organizational skills often make Louis feel clumsy and inadequate by comparison. They are loyal and loving siblings, although each marches to a very different beat. "Even Stevens" episodes are highly kid-relatable, focusing on family and brother-sister conflicts, responsibility, fairness, competition, goal-setting, self-esteem, problems with schoolmates and parent-child interaction.

Description of Program
The gang struggles with pangs of jealousy and perceived rejection, and with the mystery of romantic love, until Christopher Robin's Valentine cards are delivered to each of his animal friends. Jealousy and fear of rejection are very real to children who may fear that the birth of new siblings, parental remarriage, blended families, etc., could reduce the quantity of love available for them. The appearance of each unique Valentine card from Christopher Robin demonstrates to our audience that while people mature and change love is not limited: it is not divisible into increasingly tinier parts but can expand as far as need be.

Community Outreach Projects The following is a description of community related projects that increase the impact of community oriented programming on issues of concern to Hampton Roads residents. 1. Martin Luther King Junior Volunteer Day, January 21 WVEC joined together with Volunteer Hampton Roads to salute volunteerism in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. WVEC promoted a day of volunteering during which adult volunteers worked with youth from a local Boys and Girls club in Norfolk to put together activities that would be donated to the patients at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. Several hundred people participated making the day a great success. WVEC produced a spot to promote the event and 13 News anchor LaSalle Blanks spent the afternoon working with the volunteers. 2. Child Safety Seat Round Up and Crushing March 12 WVEC joined the DMV in this public service campaign to urge the public to turn in used or damaged child safety seats. The collection campaign ran through the month of February. In March all of the seats were gathered and crushed. 981 seats were collected and crushed. This was almost a 25% increase over the previous year. WVEC produced a Public Service Spot for the campaign. 3. CHKD Cancer Campaign March 13-April 6 WVEC and Farm Fresh Grocery Stores joined together for a special campaign to raise money for cancer treatment programs at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. During the last two weeks of March through the first week of April. Cashiers at nearly 40 grocery stores all over Hampton Roads asked and will be asking patrons to "round up" each time they made a purchase. The goal over a two year period (This is the second year of the campaign) is $500,000. Midway through the campaign is already nearly 70% of last year's total at this time has raised thousands of dollars already. Projected Events for 2nd Quarter: Child Abuse Prevention Night International Azalea Festival Air Show CHKD Miracle Night at Golden Corral CHKD Telethon Relay For Life CHKD/Farm Fresh Round Up Virginia Arts Festival-Military Tattoo, Dance Theater of Harlem, Festival Finale Child Safety Seat Check WVEC Station Tours As part of WVEC's community outreach initiative WVEC hosts station tours twice a month. An average of 20 - 35 school children ranging in age from 9 to 18 are taken to different departments in the station. An employee from each department on the tour gives a brief description of what that department does and answers questions. The tours are timed so that the group finishes in time for a snack, (provided by the station), during which time they watch 13 News at Noon. A picture of each person is taken in the news studio and presented to the guest upon departure. After the broadcast, talent from the program meets with the group for a question and answer session. The response from the community has been overwhelming to the point of now including any group or organization that wishes to visit the station.
