    Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley announced today the hiring of Greg Olson as offensive coordinator and Doug Marrone as assistant head coach-offense/offensive line coach.

    “I’m really excited about the additions of Greg Olson and Doug Marrone to our coaching staff,” Bradley said. “We always talk about wanting a great fit for our team and that also includes our coaching staff. Both Greg and Doug bring a wealth of experience and both possess the qualities that we want in our organization.  Greg is a veteran coach that is very detailed and will work hard to develop our players on the offensive side of the ball.

    Chili Cookoff In Jax Beach This February




    On February 7, 2015 the J.L. Wiley Foundation for stroke awareness and healthcare advocacy will be celebrating chili once more with their third annual Chili Cook Off. Come out to the Jacksonville Beach Community Center from 4 to 7 and register your vote for the best chili from local amateurs and professionals. Can Sawgrass Country Club and Mark Duren defend their Chili Master titles?

    The band 'Working for Crazy' will be playing some great music and there will be dancing along with a silent auction and raffle items.

    The J.L. Wiley Foundation was founded in 2010 by the Wiley family after experiencing a stroke in their family, to make people more aware of the risk of stroke and the ways that it can be prevented. Our first goal is better stroke awareness and treatment. We never would have imagined that Joe would have had a stroke. We didn’t know any of the warning signs that in retrospect were present as much as several days before. We have come to realize that while your risk of suffering a stroke increases with your age that it still can strike people of any age.

    Tickets can be purchased online at www.jlwileyfoundation.com.

    It's back: Coca-Cola reintroduces Surge soda




    Fans thirsty for a taste of ‘90s nostalgia – or those who are simply craving a citrus-flavored sparkling beverage with a kick – can rejoice in the news that SURGE is back after a 12-year hiatus.

    SURGE, which debuted in 1996 and was taken off the market in the early 2000s, is making a comeback thanks, in part, to a passionate and persistent community of brand loyalists who have been lobbying The Coca-Cola Company to bring back their favorite drink over the last few years. SURGE is Coke’s first discontinued brand to return to the market.

    The SURGE re-launch represents two additional firsts for Coke. The brand, which will be offered in its original formula in 12-packs of 16-oz. cans featuring the same retro design from yesteryear, is part of an innovative distribution deal between Coca-Cola and Amazon. A limited supply of SURGE will be sold exclusively through the online retailer atwww.amazon.com/surge, marking the first time Coke has distributed a product solely through e-commerce.

    “If expectations are met, this may be only the first of a variety of efforts we explore to launch niche products through e-commerce relationships,” said Wendy Clark, president of sparkling and strateg...   [Read More]

    Indie Country Rock Artist Jenny Lewis To Perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall Saturday, May 9, 2015




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (January 20, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that indie country rock singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis will perform on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Tickets for Jenny Lewis will go on sale to the public this Friday, January 23 at 10 a.m.

    In July of 2014, Jenny Lewis returned with her new album, The Voyager. The Los Angeles artist’s first solo LP since 2008’s Acid Tongue, The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal, and her most musically robust. Featuring production work from Ryan Adams, Beck, as well as Lewis and her longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice, The Voyager finds Lewis at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent life with honesty and incisiveness. And then there’s her voice, which was already a force to be reckoned with, but sounds even richer, more nuanced, more powerful. Lewis says The Voyager was the hardest album she has ever made, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of her band, Rilo Kiley. In the three years she worked on it, there were moments she thought she’d never finish. But, more than ever before, she knew she had to. The story is best told in Lewis’s own words:
