Our primary election coverage continues with a look at the candidates vying to represent Southwest Florida in Tallahassee.  We’ll hear an excerpt from the Florida Bar Association’s recent candidate forum in Fort Myers moderated by former Lt. Governor Jeff Kottkamp. 

As the U.S. Supreme Court recently upheld the constitutionality of the federal healthcare overhaul, we’ll sit down with the presidents of Lee Memorial Health System and Naples Community Hospital Healthcare System for a look at what the landmark law will mean for patients and local providers.

We’ll also explore why a growing number of art galleries in downtown Fort Myers are closing their doors despite the seeming success of initiatives like Art Walk.
