01/13/15: St. Johns Riverkeeper On Rodman Dam; Haiti Earthquake; 'Stars Of David'

St. Johns Riverkeeper Lisa Rinaman joins us to discuss the unlikely partnership between environmentalists, the City of Jacksonville, Jax Chamber and JaxPort to remove the Rodman Dam in Putnam County. This controversial agreement would involve moving ahead with the planned dredging of the St. Johns River while allowing more fresh water into the system by restoring the Ocklawaha River.

We also speak with orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Lovejoy about efforts by Jacksonville volunteers to help Haitians still coping with the effects of the 2010 earthquake.

And Stars of David: Story to Song cast members ?Mike Westrich and Avi Hoffman join us to discuss the muscial that celebrates some of America's best known Jewish personalities. The show will be presented by Artists Series Jacksonville January 14-15.
