We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Dan Scanlan, Florida Times-Union reporter; Claire Goforth, Folio Weekly editor; and John Burr, WJCT news analyst.

Topics include President Barack Obama visiting the First Coast this week, the 2016 presidential race, and more.

Greenscape of Jacksonville's 29th annual Flowering Tree Sale is happening this weekend. We speak with Anna Dooley, executive director of Greenscape of Jacksonville, and Bob Chabot, board member.

Our occasional commentator Jay Solomon joins us with a look at the life of "The Three Musketeers" author Alexandre Dumas.

And we speak with longtime Dave Matthews Band saxophonist and composer Jeff Coffin about the master class, clinic and concerts he is giving at Jacksonville University this week. Dr. Henry Rinne, dean of JU's College of Fine Arts, and John Ricci, director of the school's jazz program, also join us.
