We discuss the week's news with our roundtable of local journalists: Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal Editor; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; and A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist.

Topics include Mayor Lenny Curry's transition committees presenting their recommendations for the administration, the first Republican presidential debate, and more.

Dr. Jennifer Knight, Medical Director of UF Health Pediatrics North, joins us with tips for parents looking to keep their children healthy as the new school year starts.

And we get a preview of this weekend's North Florida Shark Festival at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens from Peggy Sloan, Executive Director of the North Carolina Aquarium. Sloan is a featured speaker at the festival.
