Episode #330
Previously aired Sunday December 14th
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend travels to California to explore the toll of the state's persistent drought during the hottest year ever recorded. In the four years since the drought began, the lack of water has cost thousands of jobs, caused noticeable changes in the landscape and induced desperation among citizens who are running out of options. In search of a solution, farmers who have drilled deeper and deeper into the ground for available water have sought help from unlikely sources. NewsHour's John Larson reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #329
Previously aired Saturday December 13th
On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores Connecticut's gun laws in the wake of the two-year anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The state has some of the most restrictive gun policies in the country, bolstered by a new law signed by the governor last year to keep weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill -- but not without controversy. Advocates say this law could help prevent tragedies similar to Sandy Hook, but opponents maintain it punishes lawful owners and wouldn't stop a possible mass murderer. NewsHour's John Carlos Frey reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #328
Previously aired Sunday December 7th
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend revisits the issue of crowdfunding, raising a large pool of money from many small contributions online. It's something that was supposed to be an option for startup business to raise money when President Obama signed the 2012 JOBS Act into law. But today, crowdfunding to raise investment capital from ordinary investors still remains out of reach for many entrepreneurs. NewsHour special correspondent Karla Murthy explores the support, concern and timeline of the crowdfunding provision's implementation. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #327
Previously aired Saturday December 6th
On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the issue of digital estate planning, originally reported on this past summer. Because social media, email and bank accounts can remain active even after their owner dies, valuable information can become vulnerable when the people in charge of managing the owner's estate can't access it. NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan reports on the complications surrounding digital estate planning after death and the drive to increase awareness through legislative action. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Previously aired Sunday November 30th
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend explores the issue of student debt, something millions of Americans live with for years -- even decades after they graduate college. Two of the nation's largest private student lenders have begun rolling out options that will allow borrowers to modify the terms on their loans. NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan discusses the significance of this change with two journalists. Also on Sunday, an accomplished Kansas musician known for her fiery style of fiddling recounts the special relationship she has with her 97-year-old fiddling mentor from Arkansas. The two discuss with KCPT their life lessons learned from fiddling, the nuances of their individual sounds, and how their love for the fiddle has been strengthened by each other. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Previously aired Saturday November 29th
On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend revisits the issue of teacher tenure laws, first reported on in March. A legal case brought by nine public school students in California, who argued the state's laws denied their right to a quality education, ended a few months ago after a judge declared the laws unconstitutional. Shortly after the ruling, legal action regarding teacher tenure laws began in another state, with parents in New York filing a similar lawsuit. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #324
Previously aired Sunday November 23rd
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines the inequality of criminal prosecutions on American Indian reservations, where women face some of the highest levels of violence. The Justice Department says acts of sexual assault against this group are most frequently committed by non-Indian men, who are generally immune to prosecution in tribal courts. Congress reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act last year, which effectively gave tribal courts jurisdiction over certain domestic violence crimes committed by non-Indians. But victims say acts of sexual violence on Indian reservations are still falling through the cracks. NewsHour Weekend's Stephen Fee reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores a plan New York City officials hope will make a dent in traffic accidents, a major cause of death in the US. Although city streets in the past few years have been the safest in decades, traffic accidents and pedestrian fatalities have recently started to tick back up. Now, city officials are looking to Vision Zero, an initiative based on a model from Sweden, which has a statistically safe transport system. The plan hinges on expanded enforcement, new street designs, public outreach and legislation to increase penalties for dangerous drivers. NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend reports from Massachusetts, where the small northern town of Westminster could become the first in the nation to ban the sale of tobacco products. If enacted, the unprecedented proposal would ban cigarettes, chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes. Proponents cite the benefit of the reduced health risks from tobacco, whereas some residents and local businesses say jobs and consumer freedom is at stake. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Iowa to explore the widespread issue of herbicide-resistant and hard-to-control weeds. Millions of acres of farmland have been affected, rendering some fields unable to be farmed. And the problem is spreading, which could mean more lost crops and lost profits. The EPA recently approved a new Dow herbicide that the industry says could help the problem. But opponents have sued to stop it, warning it could make the weed situation even worse, and possibly harm the environment and human health. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Sunday: During El Salvador's brutal civil war 30 years ago, hundreds of thousands of people fled to the United States, where some joined dangerous Latino gangs for protection and a livelihood. Soon after, many of these gang members were deported back to El Salvador, establishing a new and threatening presence in their home country. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent John Carlos Frey reports from El Salvador. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the toll that varying state laws governing compensation for wrongfully convicted people have on the exonerated. While some states offer sizable settlements to those who've later been found innocent, at least 20 offer nothing. And even for those that do, it may not be enough to make up for the emotional damage experienced by those who've been wrongfully convicted. Hari Sreenivasan reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Oregon for a deeper look at the right-to-die movement in the U.S. While assisted suicide is only legal in three states, the story of 29-year-old Brittany Maynard, who after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer moved to Oregon so she could legally end her own life, has brought the issue back into the national spotlight. NewsHour Weekend's Stephen Fee explores how this renewed debate may affect end-of-life care and the momentum for assisted suicide. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, with midterm elections approaching, NewsHour Weekend travels to Louisiana where the race for the U.S. Senate closely mirrors contests from battleground states across the country. At least three dozen members of Congress have had family members who've held political office before them. Numerous incumbents today see their political futures in jeopardy, in large part because of the president's unpopularity. NewsHour's Jeff Greenfield explores the family business of American politics and how having a popular name helps candidates today. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

After millions was slashed from mental health spending during the recession, specialized facilities around the country were forced shut, leaving many patients with nowhere to turn. NewsHour Weekend's Stephen Fee reports on how a Chicago nonprofit is aiming to set the standard for providing adequate coverage to Americans with mental illnesses. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
