06/04/15: Drones For Commercial Use; ElderSource; Boater's Skip Day; Kerry Speckman

We speak with Brent Klavon, Program Manager with the Jacksonville-based company Aviation Systems Engineering, about the commercial applications and regulations for unmanned aviation vehicles, commonly known as drones. The Federal Aviation Administration recently granted the company an exemption to use drones for commercial and industrial purposes.

The "A Night with the Stars" gala this week will raise funds for ElderSource, a local nonprofit that works to provide resources and support for Northeast Florida's elderly. Linda Levin, Executive Director of ElderSource, joins us with a preview.

Contributor Kerry Speckman stops by with a rundown of the biggest events happening around town this week. And Bob Cox, Membership Director for Freedom Boat Club, tells us about Boater's Skip Day.
