On the Next Dimensions

This year marks the 42nd year that the Stephen C. Smith Regatta has been raising funds for the American Cancer Society. We find out what’s in store for the upcoming event. And we travel on the waters of the Apalachicola to explore life along the river. Our community prepares to honor and remember holocaust victims, while educating people about this important event in our world’s history. Plus, resources for the homeless youth in our area.
