10/14/15: Democratic Debate; Immigration; Green Lion Festival; 'St. George And The Dragon'


The five Democratic presidential candidates - Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Martin O'Malley and Lincoln Chafee - took the stage Tuesday night for their first debate. Ben Weaver, local Democratic activist and organizer for Bernie Sanders, joins us to discuss it.

One of the many issues discussed during the debate was immigration. All five candidates expressed their support for comprehensive immigration reform and some sort of path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented people living in the United States. We discuss the national debate over immigration with Rebecca Black, immigration attorney and chair of the First Coast Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

In this week's edition of our Going Green segment, we preview the US Green Building Council North Florida and Aardwolf Brewery's Green Lion Festival to promote green-focused businesses. Preben Olsen, Owner of Aardwolf Brewery, and Alicia Smith, Marketing Guru for Green Lion Festival join us.

And we learn about the Christ Episcopal Church School of the Arts's production of "St. George and the Dragon" from director and playwright Jason Woods.
