Florida Senate Approves Bill For DayLight Saving Time Year Round

In a vote that took less than a minute, with a vote of 33-2, the senate has passed the Sunshine Protection Act and it is now being sent to Governor Rick Scott. If Scott signs it, Congress will have to amend current existing federal law to allow the change.

Right now the only 2 states that don’t observe Daylight Saving are Arizona, and Hawaii. The bill will also make it so all of Florida will be in one time zone, rather than having Northwest Florida be in central time. If passed, come winter while the rest of the east coat set their clocks back one hour, Florida will keep the time the same for more sunshine in the evening.

Watching the ball drop on New Years Eve would happen at 1 a.m local time, but it’s alright because in Florida it’s always Sunny!

Keith Richards Apologizes to Mick Jagger For Joke

Mick Jagger’s 8th child was born in December 2016 (first with current girlfriend). In a story published on Wednesday, Keith Richards said “It’s time for the snip—you can’t be a father at that age. Those poor kids!”

Since the story has published Richards has taken to twitter for his public apology tweeting : “I deeply regret the comments I made about Mick in the WSJ which were completely out of line. I have of course apologized to him in person”.

The recent comments haven’t stopped the Stones from touring as they just announced an 11 show European leg of their No Filter Tour. Richards has also promised that a new album will be out, maybe not soon, but eventually.

The Doors To Release New CD/DVD Special

The 1970 Isle of Wight Festival in England was “a little chaotic” in the words of Robby Krieger. It was the doors third to last concert, in the midst of Jim Morrisons trial for indecent exposure down in Miami.

It was a different type of show for The Doors, Jim wasn’t as animated as usual, the lighting was dark at Jim’s request since he wasn’t in the greatest of moods, and at the overweight with a beard point of his career. However, the show still sounded great, and the rest of the band thrived during the lenghtier instrumental jams.

The CD DVD set will be released on February 23rd.

We’re Moving On!

On the road to Pittsburgh! A Jalen Ramsey interception ended what was a close, low scoring game to propel the Jags’ further into the playoffs. The first home playoff win in almost 20 years, and the city showed up for it. A sold out crowd watched the Jaguars defeat the Buffalo Bills 10-3 yesterday in what was the lowest scoring Wild Card game to date.

Next up: Pittsburgh, where its expected to be 20 degrees. Meanwhile, the Titans will be taking on the Patriots in Foxborough. If the Jaguars and Titans both win next week, Jacksonville will be hosting the AFC Championship game! Not to get too far ahead of ourselves.

For now, it’s time to enjoy this win and be hopeful of the future with a young, skilled Jaguars team!

Jags Tickets Only Last 3 Minutes

A limited amount of unused tickets for the Jaguars home playoff game this Sunday went on sale, but after only 3 minutes they were sold out! The tickets came from unused inventory from groups such as the NFL, the Bills team tickets, players families, internal holds, and standing rooms.

Luckily for standing room ticketholders, the Jaguars do a great job keeping it fun and comfortable. You can either watch from the BudZone sports bar in stadium, the FanDuelville club with a live DJ, or the Sky Patio right under the scoreboards.

Shad Khan also gave away 2,500 tickets for only $20 split up between 500 refugees from around the world that live in the area, 500 Puerto Ricans that are displaced due to Hurricane Irma, and 1,500 local military members!

Weather Expected to Get Worse

There were warnings for a hard freeze this morning that was expected to close bridges. However, to commuters delight just after 7 a.m there were no reports of any bridge closures. The warning called for freezing wind chills, rain, and ice that could cause slippery road conditions.

The worst is supposed to come tonight going into Thursday morning. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 20’s with a wind chill in the teens! If you have a flight booked leaving out of Jax make sure to keep an eye on that as cancellations are happening. On your morning commute, try to give yourself extra time due to the road conditions. Always protect your pets, plants, and pipes. Most importantly, be safe!

Ringo Starr and Barry Gibb of the Beegees will receive knighthood during Queen Elizabeth’s annual New Years Honours. Ringo was already knighted as a member of the beatles but is now joining Paul to be solo knighted. Now Paul no longer has to push for Ringo to become knighted, as he has jokingly said he’s done in the past.

Gibb, who was knighted with the rest of the Beegees in 2004, will be receiving the “Knights Bachelor” for his services to music and charity.

Marc Almond, Hugh Laurie, and Wiley were also named to the New Years Honour List.
