    A Dead 30-Foot-Long Humpback Whale Washes Up On Fernandina Beach




    A dead 30 foot long humpback whale that washed onto Fernandina Beach early Sunday is the latest in an alarming increase in fatalities for the federally endangered mammal. The whale showed signs of scavenging by sharks, FWC officials said, which are natural predators to humpback whales.

    Marine and wildlife crews are trying determine why the humpback whale died. Before the whale was buried under the sand on Monday, samples were collected so that a necropsy, which is similar to an autopsy, can be performed to determine the cause of death.

    It could take months or even years, for the whale's body to completely decompose under the sand, but Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said there are no health or safety risks for people who want to come out to the beach. 

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission states that anyone who sees a beached whale or dolphin is asked to immediately call FWC or 1-877-WHALE-HELP. People may do more harm than good if they try to push it back into the water on their own.

    The AFC Overcomes A 17-point Deficit To Stun The NFC In The Pro Bowl 24-23




    The steady rain was a factor in the first of four AFC turnovers in the 2018 Pro Bowl, but the AFC rallied for a 24-23 victory over the NFC at Camping World Stadium.

    The NFC built a 20-3 lead by halftime, but the AFC made a game out of it by cutting the deficit to three points in the third quarter. With three minutes left in the game, the Derek Carr-quarterback AFC squad trailed by six points and faced a fourth-and-7. Carr hit Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry for a first down. A slant to Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton on the other side of the two-minute warning got the AFC inside the red zone. A dart from Carr to Titans tight end Delanie Walker gave the AFC their first lead of the game with 91 seconds remaining.

    The Titans' tight end  Delanie Walker took home offensive MVP honors while the Broncos' pass rusher Von Miller won defensive MVP. Walker caught four passes for 29 yards and two scores. Broncos linebacker Von Miller hadthree tackles and a game-sealing strip sack with 36 seconds remaining.

    The rain returned in the fourth quarter and Peterson's second interception initially appeared to seal the NFC win. But Carr led a seven-play, 47-yard scoring drive as Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who went 10 of 18 for 86 ...   [Read More]

    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]

    St. Augustine, Fla. (May 11, 2015) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre proudly announces that rock superstar Bryan Adams will be plugging in once again and hitting the road with a full band to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the multi-million selling album Reckless. The tour will make a stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 28, 2015. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 15 at 10 a.m.

    Adams will be performing a set that will honor not only the 30th Anniversary of Reckless – a deluxe version of which has been released via UMC/Polydor this past November, featuring exclusive expanded bonus material – but also his endless catalogue of anthemic hits.

    Since its release in 1984, Reckless has gone 5 times Platinum in the U.S. alone and has sold over 12 million worldwide.

    Adrian Legg & David Lindley Coming To The PV Concert Hall




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (May 12, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that renowned guitarist Adrian Legg and multi-instrumentalist David Lindley will perform on Thursday, November 12, 2015. Tickets for Adrian Legg and David Lindley will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 15 at 10 a.m.

    Renowned and awarded for his unique amalgamation of acoustic and electric guitar and how he blends diverse musical styles and inspirations into a distinctive sound all his own, Adrian Legg has been hailed as “one of the wizards” of the guitar (Philadelphia Enquirer) and “a genius” (Los Angeles Reader). In addition to his distinguished career as a live performer, recording artist and composer, he is an innovator in guitar design and amplification technology, an instructor, photographer, writer and author, witty and engaging between song onstage raconteur, and an at large commentator for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” among other gifts, pursuits and interests. Hence it’s no wonder that What’s Up magazine hails London-born Legg as “the greatest British import since Newcastle Brown Ale.” Born in 1948 in the London neighborhood of Hackney, the best way...   [Read More]




    Classic Hard Rock Trio The Winery Dogs Coming To Ponte Vedra




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (May 11, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall welcomes classic hard rock trio The Winery Dogs on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, May 15 at 10 a.m.

    It would be easy to call The Winery Dogs a supergroup: Vocalist and guitarist Richie Kotzen made his mark with Poison and Mr. Big, bassist Billy Sheehan has been rocking for decades with Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and others, and drummer Mike Portnoy was the co-founder of progressive metal superstars Dream Theater. But The Winery Dogs are so much more than a supergroup. Supergroups are usually short-lived entities composed of gifted players that jam out for little while and then quickly record with the hopes of catching lightning in a bottle. That's certainly not the case with The Winery Dogs, a cohesive, well-rounded classic-sounding trio with blazing songs that defy expectation. The group’s self-titled debut is filled with straightforward rock and roll inspired by some of their favorite bands, and their music transcends any of the styles they're best known for.

    “We all have our own distinct voicings and styles, but we also have a common ground of music we grew up listening to,&rdquo...   [Read More]




    Little Big Town Coming To St Augustine Amitheatre




    St. Augustine, Fla. (April 27, 2015) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre proudly welcomes contemporary country quartet and 2015 ACM Awards Vocal Group of the Year, Little Big Town, on Saturday, October 17, 2015. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 1 at 10 a.m.

    The country vocal quartet Little Big Town features Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Jimi Westbrook and Kimberly Schlapman. The quartet began with Kimberly and Karen, two Georgia natives who began singing together in college. Arkansas-born and Alabama-raised Jimi Westbrook, a friend of Fairchild's husband, joined them to make a trio, and the group was completed by the addition of Arkansan Phil Sweet in 1998. From the outset, Little Big Town devoted their sound to harmony and multiple lead vocals, a combination that made the band a hard sell at first. They finally landed a deal at Mercury Records, but it fell through due to disagreements about musical direction. In the wake of the success of the Dixie Chicks, however, Little Big Town were taken up by the Dixie Chicks' label, Monument Records in 2000 and Monument issued the band's debut single, "Don't Waste My Time," in the winter of 2002. The song was on its way up the charts when its accomp...   [Read More]
