Jacksonville City Hall.

The Jacksonville City Council has decided to appeal a federal court order that found the city likely racially gerrymandered its district lines. While waiting on the appeal, the council will try to draw a new map to comply with the court order.

We took a closer look at what this means for the midterm elections, coming up in just a few weeks with Nicholas Warren, staff attorney with ACLU of Florida.

Canceling student debt

The portal is now open to get your student debt canceled — with some conditions, of course. For more on what you need to know about getting your student loans forgiven, we spoke with Daniel Gilham, managing director at Farther in Jacksonville.

The Farmery

Ashante Green of Green Legacy Farms is branching out. She recently opened The Farmery, a bakery and bodega, in Springfield. Her mother, Andrea Bryant-Smith, is the Farmery’s chef. They both joined us to talk about their new venture.

Streams of Sound

John Guinta is CEO at Streams of Sound and joined us to perform on his healing handpan and preview a show in our area.
