02/26/15: Juvenile Arrest Records; Author Kim Skinner; Douglas Anderson Extravaganza; Kerry Speckman

Child advocates are pushing for new state legislation that would make juvenile arrest records confidential. They argue that, even if the child is exonerated, having the arrest on their record could create difficulties when enrolling in college, applying for a job and more. We speak with Roy Miller, president of the Tallahassee-based Children’s Campaign, and LawandaRavoira, president of the Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center.

First Coast author and speaker Kim Skinner joins us to discuss her new book, "Wives in the Locker Room".

We also get a preview of Douglas Anderson School of the Arts' 29th annual "Extravaganza" showcase from Douglas Anderson principal Jackie Cornelius.

And Kerry "The Specktator" Speckman joins us with a look at events happening around town this weekend.
