About this Episode

The body of the legendary FSU Football coach Bobby Bowden will lie in state in the Historic Capitol from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. for public viewing. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for charitable contributions to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Also on today’s Sunrise:

— Gov. Ron DeSantis is dropping hints that the state may resume daily COVID-19 reports after cutting back to weekly reports in June — just before the summer spike began. But now the Governor says they can use those county-by-county breakdowns.

— House Democrats want more than just maybe. They want numbers. But until the state starts publishing those numbers again, Nikki Fried says you can always count on the feds.

— DeSantis is starting a new program to treat COVID-19 victims with Regeneron, and for once it sounds like he's taking the delta variant seriously.

— The Governor’s Office is also conceding they don't have the authority to withhold the salaries of school board members and superintendents who voted to impose mask mandates at local schools.

— Sunrise looks at vaccine hesitancy and how to talk with people who won't get the shot.

— And finally, three Florida Men used a shark to open a can of beer.
