We spent a few minutes with Chris Elliott, State Senator for District 32, talking about all of the hard work that has gone into getting small businesses back open in a responsible way. We also got some insight into the life of a stay-at-home dad during Covid-19. 

We spent a few minutes with James Ball, County Commissioner - District 1, to talk about how strong partnerships have lead to Baldwin County's successful navigation towards recovery. 

Blake Phelps, Economic Development Coordinator for the City of Gulf Shores, talks reopening. 

We sat down with Joel Hamilton, Director at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, and talked about his passion for the animals, people and why he does what he does. If you ever want to make a real connection with the wildlife, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is the place to do it. We hope you join us again for this week’s Story.
