Freedom Boat Club Will Open Fourth Northeast Florida Location
Freedom Boat Club is opening another area location at Beach Marine, 2315 Beach Boulevard, in Jacksonville Beach. Their other locations in the area are Palm Valley Outdoors, near Nocatee at 377 S. Roscoe Blvd, Julington Creek Marina in Jacksonville and Camachee Cove Marina in St. Augustine as an option to members.
When you join a fitness club, you don’t expect to see a constant stream of upgraded equipment. When you join a golf club, you don’t expect the course to be improved every year. Those are not realistic expectations. But members of the Freedom Boat Club know through experience that “new and improved” is not a marketing slogan or wishful thinking; it is a REALITY.
Fifteen Freedom Boat Club boats will be available for members at Beach Marine.
When you belong to the Freedom Boat Club, you not only leave the worries behind, you also don’t have to fret over aging facilities or deteriorating equipment.
Freedom Boat Club was founded in Venice, FL. in 1987. It has more than 145 locations and 16,000 members. In Jacksonville, the fleet has grown from four to 80 boats in six years.
The newest location is scheduled to open on April 12.... [Read More]

Ex Jaguar Allen Hurns Agrees To Deal With Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys have obtained a new weapon for Dak Prescott. Two days after taking a free-agent visit to Dallas, wide receiver Allen Hurns has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cowboys. The deal is worth $12 million, according to multiple reports.
An undrafted free agent out of Miami (Fla.) in 2014, Hurns spent his first four NFL seasons with the Jaguars. His best year came in 2015, when he caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns.
In his four seasons with the Jaguars, Hurns had 189 receptions for 2,669 yards and 21 TDs. He caught just 74 passes for 961 yards and five scores the past two years while dealing with a sports hernia in 2016 and a high ankle sprain in 2017.
Injuries the past two seasons kept Hurns below 40 receptions and 500 yards each time, though he also played in an offense geared to run the ball and often hampered by quarterback Blake Bortles' inconsistency.
In Dallas, Hurns will compete for snaps with Dez Bryant, Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams in a passing offense that ranked 26th in 2017.... [Read More]

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.
Wood said Winston left the supermarket at 800 Ocala Road without paying for crab legs and crawfish shortly before 9 p.m., and when police arrived at his residence after midnight Winston said he "forgot" to pay upon being interviewed.
"He was very cooperative and he seemed fairly honest in that he did not pay for the item," Wood said.... [Read More]
2016 Curling Championships Coming To Jacksonville
Jacksonville has been selected as the site for the 2016 USA Curling National Championships. This will be the first time that a curling national championship will take place in the Sunshine State. The Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena will serve as the venue for the event, which will be staged Feb. 6-13, 2016.

SHARKS CALM STORM ON FRIDAY NIGHT 60-41
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. Garcia needed just one snap to make an impact, throwing Mardy Gilyard open for a diving 24-yard touchdown catch that gave the Sharks that two-score lead.
Archer bounced back after missing that one snap, playing the rest of the game under center. Following the Storm’s first score of the game – a touchdown from Hippeard to Justin Hilton, Archer fired a five-yard scoring strike to London Crawford, giving the Sharks a 20-7 lead. But... [Read More]

If you were on the Russian Olympic team and you were a medalist at the Sochi Games, you're in the money. The medal winners are given cash and a new Mercedes.

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]

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]
Brian Adams To Perform In St. Augustine
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. It spawned ground-breaking hits such as "Run to You", "Kids Wanna Rock", “Somebody", "Summer of '69", “One Night Love Affair" and "It's Only Love" a duet with the incomparable Tina Turner. Reckless also gave Bryan is first U.S. #1 on Billboard with "Heaven" as well as a Diamond Award for over a million sold in his home country of Canada. The a... [Read More]
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...

￼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]

Sneak Peak Of Vision For Shipyards Development Presented By Shad Khan
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 17, 2015 – The eagerly anticipated vision to transform the Shipyards riverfront downtown property into a vibrant entertainment and leisure district was presented today by Jaguars owner Shad Khan and team president Mark Lamping on behalf of Iguana Investments, a new development entity created by Khan specifically for the Shipyards project.
