T-minus one week till election day here in Duval, with early voting already underway. And, the biggest race in this special runoff election is for the next mayor of Jacksonville.

One of the candidates, Democrat Donna Deegan, joined us with more on her platform.

Editor’s note: We have extended several invitations to Deegan's opponent, Republican Daniel Davis, but he has yet to accept them.

Sisisky-Kleppinger lecture

The Sisisky-Kleppinger Annual Endowed Lecture for Women’s Health is set for May 10 at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center. It’s a chance to learn about the full circle of breast cancer care in our area, from prevention to intervention to survivorship.

LeeAnn Mengel, vice president of Baptist MD Anderson, is moderating the panel and gave us a preview.

Groundwork Jax

Groundwork Jacksonville has been awarded two grants from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for the restoration of Hogans and McCoys creeks totaling more than $5.7 Million.

Kay Ehas, the CEO of Groundwork Jacksonville, joined us to explain how they will be used.

Mixed Fillings

The very popular local Mixed Fillings Pie Shop has finally moved into its new home in Five Points. And we all know what that means — more pies!

Natasha Burton, the shop’s founder and owner, joined us with all the sweet details.
