Jolley runs Duke Energy’s free life jacket loan program in North Carolina and South Carolina. Life jacket loaner stations are at more than 20 locations at lakes, rivers and creeks, and Jolley's team plans to add more each year.

Rain is now one of those things you talk about as if it only happened in the old days. Here at RW HQ, summer always presents a common and modern challenge: how do you juggle the heat, vacations, weddings (you may have noticed one of our own had a name change), summer concerts, activities for kids, and so on with our day-to-day work efforts?
