FSU QB Jameis Winston cited for shoplifting lobster and crawfish from Publix
Heisman trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston was cited for shoplifting $32.72 worth of seafood at a Publix grocery store in Tallahassee, Fla., on Tuesday night, Leon County Director of Law Enforcement Michael Wood said in a news conference Wednesday.
He left with crab legs and crawfish. Before leaving the Publix, he put back the butter he had in his cart but left with the other items. We aren't sure what he was thinking but he is back in the spotlight with now indisputable video evidence.

JACKSONVILLE – Taking advantage of an opportunistic defense that forced five turnovers, the Jacksonville Sharks improved to 2-0 at home on Friday night, beating the Tampa Bay Storm by a 60-41 count on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Jacksonville (2-2) jumped out to an early 13-0 lead thanks to the first of those turnovers. After R.J. Archer opened the game with a one-yard touchdown run. Tampa Bay (3-2) quarterback Randy Hippeard lost control of the snap on the Storm’s ensuing drive. Jack linebacker Charlie Hunt pounced on the loose ball to set the Sharks up at the Storm 16. On the very next play, starting quarterback R.J. Archer took a hard hit and left the game for one play and Aaron Garcia stepped on to the field wearing a Jacksonville uniform for the first time since 2011.

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]

Tickets for King Sunny Ade & His African Beats will go on sale to the public this Friday, June 12 at 10 a.m.
Since the evolution of juju music in Nigeria in the 1930s, no artist has made a more lasting impact in the genre than King Sunny Ade. As a singer, composer and guitarist, he has succeeded over the years in taking this Nigerian social music type to international heights. Ade came on the scene in 1966, following his induction as a samba player in a small group led by showman and comedian Baba Sala, known in real life as Moses Olaiya. And with his own 10-piece band, the Green Spots, Ade made his first record in 1967, playing the guitar solos himself. He however, blazed into prominence a year after with a hit single in praise of Stationery Stores football club which earned him a Gold disc as a result of its massive sales. Since then Ade has been in the limelight.
The late 60s found Ade searching for a credible sound identity that tended to fuse the influence of Tunde Nightingale with the techniques of his mentor, Moses Olaiya, in ... [Read More]

Rock Band Modest Mouse To Perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre
St. Augustine, Fla. (May 26, 2015) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, in partnership with Jax Live Presents, proudly announce the return of indie rock band Modest Mouse to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, July 17, 2015. Tickets for this concert event will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 29 at 10 a.m.
Modest Mouse are one of the most surprising commercial success stories of the new millennium – while their music is by turns taut and elliptical, and the lyrics sometimes cryptic and introspective, the band broke through the mainstream audience with the platinum-selling Good News for People Who Love Bad News and they became genuine rock stars at a time when their musical peers remained cult figures.
Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington by singer/guitarist Isaac Brock, drummer Jeremiah Green and bassist Eric Judy. In 1994, Modest Mouse recorded its first EP, Blue Cadet-3, Do You Connect and also recorded what would have been its first album, Sad Sappy Sucker, but constant delays caused the album to be shelved and ultimately released in 2001. In 1996, the group officially released its debut album, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, on the independent ... [Read More]

An Elite Force of Military Veterans From Jacksonville Planing To Take On ISIS
An elite force of military Veterans comprised of ex marines, rangers, seals, and scout snipers are taking the fight against ISIS into their own hands. The group, Veterans against ISIS, led by Veteran Sean Rowe who lives in Jacksonville fl are asking for your help. As of now, Sean has comprised a team of military Veterans from Jacksonville and surrounding areas that will ship out to the Middle East to protect civilians abroad suffering at the hands of Islamic extremists.
Determined to save lives abroad, Rowe told Fox News that there is no denying that innocent civilians in Iraq and Syria need help in the face of such pervasive extremism. "I'm a well-trained veteran with the best military in the world," he said, "and there's nothing more important than helping these innocent women and children being slaughtered over there."
Rowe mentioned that the biggest challenge he and his team currently face is a lack of resources. "We have most of what we need right now," he said, "but we are seeking to raise support because we can't take a lot of stuff with us." Unless they can garner further financial support, the group will be relying on locals for food, weaponry, and medical suppl... [Read More]
