10/20/15: 90-Day City Audit; First Coast Connect Book Club; Gullah Geechee Film And Cultural Fest

A recent 90-day audit of the Jacksonville's city finances revealed serious problems with unsustainable budget deficits and looming challenges down the road, from pension obligations to how to pay for an expensive dredging project for the St. Johns River. We discuss the findings of the audit and what could be next for the city with A.G. Gancarski, reporter for Florida Politics.

In this month's edition of the First Coast Connect Book Club, book blogger Stacey Goldring joins us with a look at David McCullough's "The Wright Brothers."

And we learn about the upcoming Gullah Geechee Film and Cultural Festival, celebrating St. Augustine's west African heritage, with author Derek Boyd Hankerson and Ann Chinn, Executive Director of the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Marker Project.
