As we gear up to conclude the week, our First Coast Week in Review panel discusses the biggest headlines in the news.

Among the topics:

  • A new professional soccer club in Jacksonville revealed its name, colors and crest, with the spotlight on two American football stars, Tim Tebow and Fred Taylor. The duo are members of the ownership group behind the Jacksonville Sporting Club. 
  • Jacksonville City Council granted approval for $26 million in funding for Mayor Deegan’s priorities.
  • Developments continued to unfold at the Jax Housing Authority. After the mayor's office paused a $60,000 salary increase for CEO Dwayne Alexander, new revelations emerged about an investigation by the Office of Inspector General. 
  • City Council deliberated over a new proposal for redeveloping the historic Laura Street Trio Downtown. 
  • Former Jacksonville Jaguars employee Amit Patel pleaded guilty to stealing $22 million from the team. 

Our panel:
