Calm and Conflict at DeLeon Springs

I had so much fun producing this 5 minute story about the history surrounding DeLeon Springs State Park in Volusia County, Florida. The spring’s history dates back to prehistoric times but this story describes a raid by Union forces during the Civil War. This aired on Florida Frontiers.

Theater Opening

Opening a new movie theater during the recession was kind of a big deal.  The theater convinced the mayor, the local university president, and other civic leaders to make an appearance. I covered the event from the economic angle. This aired on WBZS-AM.

Shuttle Launch

This was the first shuttle launch after a summer of embarrassment for NASA. The shuttle Discovery had put the nearsighted Hubble Space Telescope in orbit. NASA also battled a series of fuel and hydraulic leaks on both Atlantis and Columbia that prevented scheduled launches. This flight went off without a single problem. This aired on WBZS-AM.
