    Devil's Den: A Natural Wonder




    Explore one of North America's most prehistoric places, Devil's Den! Devil's Den, a underwater cave and spring in central Florida, was formed by a karst window in which the roof over a subterranean river collapsed, exposing the water to the open surface. Over the years, this natural wonder has been transformed from a simple scuba diving site to a world class tourist attraction.

    At the cave, remains of extinct animals from the Pleistocene Age (2 million - 10,000 years ago) have been discovered, including the bones of early man, dating back to 7,500 BC. On cold winter mornings, you can see steam-like smoke rising from the chimney opening. Thus, the early settlers graced the name Devil’s Den.

    The spring features crystal clear water, year round 72 degree water temperatures, fossils beds dating back 33 million years plus more! Devil's Den offers scuba diving and snorkeling 7 days a week. They also offer equipment rentals, scuba instruction and night dives with special reservations. All divers must be Open Water certified, sign release, have proper training, and follow rules and regulations.

    Jacksonville, Fla., Aug. 1, 2017 – What is the best way to show appreciation for a valued partner? Freedom Boat Club Jacksonville has come up with a unique tribute.

    “We wanted to honor a successful partnership we have had for many years now,” said Lisa Almeida, co-owner of Freedom Boat Club Jacksonville. “So, we are naming our newest boat ‘904 Happy Hour’.”Almeida explains the logic of naming a boat after another organization.

    2017 Total Solar Eclipse On August 21st




    On Aug. 21, 2017, people across the United States will see the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse .

    A total solar eclipse occurs when the disk of the moon appears to completely cover the disk of the sun in the sky. The fact that total solar eclipses occur at all is a quirk of cosmic geometry. The moon orbits an average of 239,000 miles (385,000 kilometers) from Earth — just the right distance to seem the same size in the sky as the much-larger sun. However, these heavenly bodies line up only about once every 18 months.

    The path of totality for the Aug. 21, 2017, total solar eclipse is about 70 miles wide and stretches from Oregon to South Carolina. It passes through Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

    During totality, the area inside the moon's shadow is cloaked in twilight — a very strange feeling to experience in the middle of the day. Just before and just after totality, observers can see this cloak o...   [Read More]




    The Volstead, Downtown Jacksonville's Premier Prohibition Style Whiskey Lounge Is Closing




    The Volstead has announced that it will be closing its doors on August 21. The Volstead was a popular downtown Jacksonville speakeasy-style bar that has been open for about 3 1/2 years.

    The Downtown speakeasy-style bar  located at 115 W. Adams Street fronts as an old post office, but once inside, it is a bar specializing in cocktails from times past . It is an upscale bourbon bar serving premium bourbons, scotches and whiskeys in an upscale lounge, 1920s-themed setting.

    “The Volstead” gets its name from The Volstead Act, which enacted Prohibition in the United States in late 1919. The act was later repealed in 1933, but the era would forever leave its mark on history. Some of histories most colorful personalities were players in bootlegging operations, and to this day bars still carry on

    Jacksonville Florida pre-prohibition was a beautiful, bustling city where people came to achieve their dreams; designed to be the original site of Hollywood where the stars and starlets of the era came to spend their time.

    As the decade progressed the nation fell on hard times, Congressman Andrew Volstead chalked up the bill to eradicate the production and sale of liquor throughout the United States. As liquor ...   [Read More]

    Muschamp Hires Roper as Gators' New Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach




    GAINESVILLE, Fla. Via Gator Zone - Kurt Roper was one of five finalists this season for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.

    Gators coach Will Muschamp and Florida fans would like nothing more than for Roper to repeat as a finalist in 2014.

    Muschamp made it official Thursday morning, announcing he has hired Roper as the Gators' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

    "I'm excited to have Coach Roper join our staff," Muschamp said. "He has a diverse, up-tempo background on offense and does a good job of adapting to what the players do best. The most important thing though is he has always remained balanced.

    "He has had success calling plays in the SEC and has tutored three NFL quarterbacks. He has had players produce at every offensive position and he is one of the most well-respected coaches in the country."

    Roper has spent the last six years as offensive coordinator at Duke under Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe, a longtime mentor. Roper has worked with Cutcliffe every season but one since 1996 when he joined Tennessee's staff as a graduate assistant and Cutcliffe was the Vols' offensive coordinator.

    ESPN Acquires Rights to Arena Football Starting in 2014




    CHICAGO – ESPN and the Arena Football League (AFL) have agreed to a multi-year agreement beginning in 2014. The new deal grants ESPN rights to more than 10 regular season and postseason games on its television networks per year, including ArenaBowl and one conference championship game, as well as 75 or more games annually on ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network. ESPN’s video player will also be available on the AFL website, ArenaFootball.com.

    The relationship between the AFL and ESPN began more than two decades ago when ESPN televised the very first ArenaBowl live in 1987. Since then, ESPN televised a combination of AFL regular season and playoff games for five years (1995-99), AFL playoff games from 2000-02 and both regular season and playoff games from 2007-08.

    Additionally, ABC presented the ArenaBowl for five years from 1998-2002. “ESPN has a long history of working with the Arena Football League and this new agreement is a great opportunity to showcase the AFL as part of our year-round commitment to football,” said Matthew Volk, ESPN director, programming and acquisitions.

    "The AFL's return to ESPN is the latest example of the strides our sport has made in recent years,&qu...   [Read More]

    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. - THE PLAYERS volunteer leadership – the Red Coats –once again hit the road for what has become a Giving Back Month tradition: the Red Coat Ride Out.  This year, the Red Coats took a tour of the Operation New Hope facility before joining the UNF First Generation Scholars Luncheon; both organizations are recipients of Red Coat grants. The Red Coat Ride Out concluded a month of events that celebrated THE PLAYERS charitable outreach and total charitable donations as a result of the 2013 tournament.  

    Operation New Hope received a $10,000 grant from the Red Coats this year, and a surprise $10,000 donation from THE PLAYERS was revealed during the Red Coats visit.

    Learn How You Can Fight a Cold with Food




    Here we go again…Cold and flu season is right around the corner, and prevention is the best medicine. But when you already have a bug, getting rid of it and feeling normal again is the goal, right? Well, did you know that you can fight back by eating to boost your immune system? Cold medicines generally only manage symptoms and do not actually cure the illness, but with nutritional support you can supply your immune system with what it needs to help you beat that cold or flu bug.

    If taken immediately at the first signs and symptoms of a cold, supplements derived from the Echinacea herb are known to reduce severity and duration. The same is said to be true for a 1,000 mg dose of Vitamin C taken daily. The benefit of taking either supplement may lead to shortening the amount of time you have a cold and/or making it milder.

    Boosting certain white blood cells called monocytes and lymphocytes may help rid a cold sooner. White blood cell production is supported by certain vitamins and minerals. The following are good food sources of these nutrients:

    Citrus fruit (including orange juice) – folate, Vitamin C

    Cocoa – copper

    Dark green leafy vegetables – folate, copper, be...   [Read More]

    Indie Folk Artist Mason Jennings Coming To Ponte Vedra




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (January 26, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that indie folk singer- songwriter Mason Jennings will perform on Sunday, March 15, 2015. Tickets for Mason Jennings will go on sale to the public this Friday, January 30 at 10 a.m.

    Before setting to work on his 10th studio album, Minnesota-based musician Mason Jennings was looking for a new approach to writing. At the advice of a friend, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist holed up in the back room of his wood-nestled cabin studio with just a guitar, electric piano, bookshelf, notebook, tape recorder, and one 90-minute cassette and then wrote all winter long. Emerging with the notebook and tape full of about 30 new songs, Jennings decided to skip his standard approach of self-recording and called on producer Bo Ramsey (Greg Brown, The Pines, Iris DeMent), as well as a wish-list-plucked lineup of guest musicians that includes DeMent and Neil Young drummer Chad Cromwell. The result of those “dream collaborations” and his own hard-won inspiration is the latest album Always Been, Jennings’s most radiant and refined effort of his career. Recorded at Minneapolis studio The Terrarium, Always Been builds on the rugged, acoustic-guitar...   [Read More]

Tickets for The Robert Cray Band with Shemekia Copeland will go on sale to the general public this Friday, January 30, 2015 at 10am.

    With 5 GRAMMY Awards, 15 nominations, millions of record sales worldwide, and thousands of sold out performances, rock blues icon Robert Cray is considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation. Rolling Stone Magazine in their April 2011 issue credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” that “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues” with the release of his Strong Persuader album in 1986.

    Since then, Cray has gone on to record sixteen Billboard charting studio albums and has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011 at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. And while he can look back ove...   [Read More]
