Rob Emerson: Helping People in The Present Look into Past Lives

As a writer and storyteller, there’s not a whole lot I haven’t heard before. Vietnam veterans, check. Witches in Salem, tragic. Hypnotists and past life regressions, there’s nothing new under the sun. We just haven’t heard a story where all of these themes all converge.

Meet Lisa Liotta and Jorge Camejo: the heart and soul of Hollywood's CRA today

What is a CRA anyway? I was excited to meet with Jorge Camejo of the Hollywood CRA. I know he is very respected in the city as a man who gets things done, but what I really wanted to know was, what does CRA stand for and what exactly do they do? When I met with Jorge, the Executive Director of the Hollywood CRA, and Lisa Liotta, the Redevelopment & Operations Manager, I learned about that and a whole lot more. CRA stands for Community Redevelopment Agency. Under Florida law, the local government must survey the proposed redevelopment area...
