As the third annual One Spark crowdfunding festival kicks off in downtown Jacksonville, we look at the economic and cultural impact the event has had so far with WJCT business analyst John Burr.

Dr. Scot Ackerman of Jacksonville's Ackerman Cancer Center joins us to discuss proton therapy, a precise, cutting-edge form of radiation used to treat cancer.

And we get a preview of State Aurora's production of "The Color Purple" from cast members Felecia Ewing, Tyrone Lennen and Jennie Baker.
