GIVING BACK LOCAL PEOPLE SUPPORT LOCAL VETERANS WITH PATRIOTIC EVENT
When Red, White & Brew Freedom Run organizers began planning for the launch of Florida’s largest freedom run earlier this year, they never dreamed how involved the community would become to assist local veteran’s charities.
Ultimate Racing, Inc., a race management company based in Saint Augustine, and 904 Happy Hour out of Jacksonville joined forces to bring a patriotic run to the area that would benefit area veteran’s charities. With the partnership of the Riverside Arts Market, many volunteers and a host of sponsors, the community came out in force to support K9’s for Warriors and Warfighters in Arms.
This year, organizers donated a total of $5,000 to the 2 charities, which will help them provide service to North Florida area veterans. Warfighters in Arms is a volunteer-led group that helps vets transition to civilian life by offering employment, support, guidance, and encouragement. K9’s for Warriors provides service canines to vets suffering from PTSD and more for service members after 9.11.
Sal Palmieri, US Army veteran and owner of Ultimate Racing said he was pleased they were able to offer a sizeable donation to deserving charities and offered thanks to participa... [Read More]

The Jacksonville Icemen Earn Their First-Ever Franchise Victory
Today, The Jacksonville Icemen (1-4-1-0) picked up their first-ever franchise win and shut out the Brampton Beast (2-7-1-1) 5-0.
Just one day after being acquired by the Icemen, defenseman Jan Kostalek was quick to make a good first impression. At 14:54 in the first period, the 22-year-old scored his first-ever ECHL goal to give the Icemen a 1-0 lead. He was assisted by Alexandre Goulet and Emerson Clark, extending Goulet’s point streak to six games and Clark’s point streak to four games. Icemen goalie Jamie Phillips was strong in the first frame, denying all 14 shots from the Beast.
Late in a very even second period, Icemen captain Garet Hunt received a great pass from Cameron Critchlow as he was exiting the box, leading to a 1-on-1 breakaway. Hunt capitalized on the play to give the Icemen a 2-0 lead with 2:40 remaining in the period. For the second time on the road trip, the Icemen would head into the room after the second period with a one-goal lead.
This time, there would be no stopping the Icemen as the team continued to add to their lead. Just 2:08 into the third period, Bobby MacIntyre notched his fourth goal on the season to give the Icemen a three-goal lead. Over 11 minutes later, Alexandre Goulet stole the puck in... [Read More]

Jacksonville Fair Entertainment Recap
The Jacksonville Agricultural Fair began on Wednesday and started off with Craig Morgan performing on Thursday, and on Friday the Fall Free Gator Country concert series. Craig Morgan has performed recently at the Jacksonville Landing in July and has always put on a great show. A source says that Craig Morgan performed amazing on Thursday Night and brought in a big crowd for the fair’s concert series kick off. He is known for his favorite songs, “International Harvester”, “I Got You”, and his newest song “Waking Up Lovin You”.
The next night the concert series continued on with the newest duo in country music “American Young”. This country duo is led by Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson. They’re recent single “Love Is War” is played quite often on 99.9 Gator Country. I actually like this song for its soft sound and meaningful lyrics. The girl in the band Kristy Osmunson started out in a duo called Bomshel that began in 2006. Their songs that were hits were “Fight Like a Girl”, “19 and Crazy”, and “Power of One”. After her first band she had joined forces with Jon Stone and helped his form American Young. I think this new duo has a lot of potent... [Read More]
