One man rode a wave of Tea Party support into the Governor’s Mansion. Another is leaving the state in disgust. This week, we bring you two voices from each side of the political spectrum: Governor Rick Scott and columnist Howard Troxler. Long-time St. Petersburg Times columnist Howard Troxler announced earlier this year that he leaving Florida. He wasn’t retiring, he wasn’t taking another job. He was just leaving. WUSF’s Bobbie O’Brien wanted to find out why, and got an earful about Troxler’s frustrations with Florida’s leaders, especially the state Legislature. Troxler blasts the Legislature for passing new laws making it harder to register to vote and easier for them to accept campaign contributions through "leadership funds." From the other side of the political divide, Governor Rick Scott’s approval ratings have been improving lately, but they’re still among the lowest in the country. He’s successfully shepherded a conservative agenda through the Florida Legislature, passing education reforms, tax cuts, and a reduction of regulations. WUSF sat down with Governor Scott recently to ask about dealing with economic hard times, and just why he thinks he’s struggling in the polls.

The story onstage recently at the USF School of Theater and Dance wasn't the only one being told. There was also a "local girl makes good in the big city and returns home" tale taking place as well. University Beat on WUSF TV introduces you to that local girl, Heather Kemp, and shows you how her time at USF helped start her on her path to the stages of New York City.
