throughout the city. Earn $2 per tire up
to 10 tires, and 50 cents per sign up to 40 signs, with a maximum payout of

used tires to residents, 403.717(3)(d) F.S.
Violators of this Florida statute will be reported to Florida Department of
Environmental Protection authorities for investigation and/or enforcement.
Neighborhood BLIGHT refers to the deterioration and decay of neighborhoods in
many cities across the country due to neglect, crime or lack of economic
support. This can also be referred to as
urban decay. As homes or properties fall
further into disrepair, they can negatively affect other properties around
them. Blight conditions can lower
surrounding property values, create havens for crime and illegal activity, and
can threaten the public health and safety of a community. Blight is a drag on community energy, a
siphon on city vitality, and a strong deterrent to economic investment. It can be a source of despair or cynicism for
people who have witnessed the decline of a particular building or neighborhood
over time. Eliminating Jacksonville’s
blight will dramatically improve the next chapter of the city’s future.
So, get together with your neighbors, family and friends as we make our city a
cleaner and safer place to live.

On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought together four young
musicians – Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley. Sam
Phillips, the undisputed “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll” who was responsible for
launching the careers of each of these icons, gathered the four-legendary
singer/songwriters at the Sun Records studio in Memphis for the first and only
time. The result? One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history.
The four music icons of Million
Dollar Quartet are portrayed by: Daniel Durston as Elvis
Presley, Taylor Gray as Jerry Lee Lewis, Austin Hohnke as Carl
Perkins, and Peter Oyloe as Johnny Cash. Andy Ingalls plays Sam
Philips. The cast also features Tiffan
Borelli as Dyanne, Bill Morey as Brother Jay (Jay Perkins), and Jon
Rossi as Fluke.

a Featured Actor in a Musical and received two Tony® nominations, one for Best
Musical and one for Best Book of a Musical (Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux). The show received an Outer Critics Circle
Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical, a Drama Desk nomination for
Outstanding Musical Revue, and three Drama League nominations including
Distinguished Production of a Musical and Distinguished Performance. Million Dollar

Some of the women in the audience may have been a little disappointed when they
found out that Marvin Gaye tribute artist Brian Owens is a happily married man with six children
and one on the way, nonetheless, Brian didn’t disappoint the people who came to
the Thrasher-Horne Center to hear and see him in concert.
In the almost three hour show, Owens sang many songs from the Marvin Gaye repertoire,
including songs that were sung with the late Tammi Terrell that were
accompanied by the audience harmonizing the female parts. The man also moves around stage like Marvin
and can play the piano
like no body’s business. His four-piece
band played the best accompanying music that any enthusiast would enjoy. It’s welcoming to hear musicians who can play
in-the-pocket yet have their own individuality.
At the end of the show, Brian was summoned back to the stage by his
attendees. He then did a tribute to the late Sam
Cooke and Brian told the story of how Berry Gordy wanted Marvin to play the
role of Sam Cooke in a movie, but Marvin refused because he thought the idea
was morbid. Marvin didn’t realize that
he would die at the hand of his own father.
If you ever get a chance to see and hear Brian Owens in concert - take
advantage of “What’s Goin On: The Marvin Gaye Experience”.
