Ok world, Sandy is understandably big news today (as well it should be).  That said, take a break from the big storm coverage to view News 14 Carolina today to watch Classroom Central Executive Director Jill Dineen-Scott and Vice-Chair Rochelle Rivas (who just happens to be our very own co-founder of DARTON GROUP) speak to Rob Boisvert (Morning Weekday Anchor).
