Apr 20, 2015

Hundreds of faith and community leaders are expected to meet at Jacksonville’s Potter’s House Church Monday to press city officials about Jacksonville’s crime problem, along with discussing other campaign issues like education, jobs and mental health. The event is sponsored by ICARE, the Interfaith Coalition for Action, Reconciliation and Empowerment. We speak with ICARE members Rev. Bruce Havens, of Arlington Congregational, and Rev. James Wiggins, of St. Paul Lutheran Church.

Students in the LaVilla School of the Arts creative writing program have recorded a CD of poetry to mark National Poetry Month. Creative writing teacher Cheryl Lemine joins us with a preview.

And our sports contributor Cole Pepper joins us with news about Tim Tebow returning to the NFL, the Jaguars draft and more.
