Memorial Day is this coming up Monday and that means the Veterans for Peace will be putting up tombstones along NW 8th Avenue in Gainesville, just east of NW 34th Street. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chip Skambis spoke with president of the Gainesville chapter of Veterans for Peace Scott Camil about the display and what the organization seeks to elicit from putting it up.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/CamilQAMemorialtombstones.mp3]
The Lake City community is working to help a family of eight that lost their home in a fire last week. Donations so far include mattresses, shoes, toothbrushes and sports equipment for the kids, and a GoFundMe has been set up to raise money toward a down payment on a new house.
