It is the time of year when homeowners think about landscaping and lawn maintenance. And some of them may plant new trees. Dayton Power & Light has a few things they’re asking residents to keep in mind when planting their trees.  Holly Wiggins is the director of community and corporate social responsibility and DP&L. In this excerpt from WYSO Weekend, we talked to her about the company’s Right Tree, Right Place program and this year’s recipients of the annual grant funding that DP&L provides area communities.  

Jerry Kenney was introduced to WYSO by a friend and within a year of first tuning in became an avid listener and supporter. He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.
