Paula Schoenwether, an artist and photographer, and the Rev. Nancy Wilson, moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches, talk openly about their 28-year-old civil union as partners in all aspects of life --- living as a married couple, taking out a mortgage, blending families, caring for children, sharing debt - elements of a long-term relationship not always recognized as a legal arrangement. “The older we’ve gotten, the more in some ways we’ve peeled away our own internalized issues.’

Thousands of people move to Florida every week. Demographers predict the state’s population will grow by 10 million in the next 25 years. Many of these new Floridians will live in housing developments on land that is now home to cattle ranches, citrus groves and vegetable farms. Can Florida agriculture find ways to adapt and coexist with development? We’ll explore the question on our next Florida Matters with our guests.
In honor of Father’s Day, hear a compilation of previously told Florida Stories featuring three men as they reflect on their lives. First, John Clement shares the family’s legacy of humor with his daughter Lawrason; next, Tony Castellano tells his daughter Rose Castellano Mattran about his favorite years as a young man; and finally, William J. Cobb relates to his his grandson, William Scott Cobb, what his own father meant to him.
