New JEA CEO Jay Stowe started his position running the city-owned utility this week. Stowe comes to lead the utility after a very rocky period for JEA, which included its failed sales attempt last year, the subsequent firing of former CEO Aaron Zahn and the executive staff, along with ongoing investigations into the matter. We spoke with Stowe about the past, present and future of JEA.

Deck The Doors is way to support our local Ronald McDonald House this holiday season. The organization's Executive Director Diane Boyle joined us with more details on the campaign and how to contribute to it.
