05/12/15: John Delaney; St. Augustine Arts Association; Summer Camps; Big Climb For Tiny Hope

Incumbent Mayor Alvin Brown and challenger Lenny Curry are in the home stretch leading into next Tuesday’s election. Last night the two held the second of three debates. Early voting is underway, and the endorsements are flying fast and furious on both sides. We speak with former Jacksonville mayor and current University of North Florida president John Delaney about his decision to endorse Lenny Curry.

In our America's First City segment spotlighting St. Augustine's 450th commemoration, we speak with Elyse Brady of the St. Augustine Arts Association about the museum's "Iconic St. Augustine" exhibition.

Jon Heymann and Lavetta McCoy of the Jacksonville Children's Commission join us with what parents can do to ensure local kids are safe, healthy and prepared to be successful during the summer break.

And we learn how local professionals are raising money for the Tiny Hope Children's Home in Jamaica by climbing Mount Rainier in Washington. Team member Daniel Gilham joins us.
