    On tonight’s program: Florida again becomes a national hotbed for new coronavirus infections. We’ll see how that surge is impacting some hospitals just a few miles from the State Capitol; South Florida is also seeing a COVID surge and we’ll get the latest from there; The first - and some would say the most contentious - bill to make it through this year’s Florida lawmaking session will soon have its day in court; In the wake of the 2020 Census, Florida lawmakers get ready to redraw the state’s legislative and congressional district maps. And it seems they’re determined not to repeat the mistakes of the past; And the seismic shocks from a bizarre Capital City murder case continue to reverberate. The parents of the victim still mourn for him and the grandchildren they haven’t seen in years.

  • Two years ago, Leon County's annual Veterans' Stand Downs had been so effective in reducing the incidence of veteran homelessness that only about 100 people took advantage of the service showcase. But the intervening pandemic has meant an increase in both the number of homeless veterans and incidence of those at risk of homelessness. So the Veterans' Stand Down returns this year on August 6 and 7 at the Al Lawson Center on the FAMU Campus. To talk about it are: Event Coordinator Bill Eichhofer and Stand Down Founder Col. Washington Sanchez.
