Give Us a Break! Just Smash That provides a cathartic—and fun—way to channel frustration Words By Carmen Macri & Ambar Ramirez   Located on the corner of Blanding Square Plaza in Orange Park, there is a true hole-in-the-wall operation (pun intended).

He saw an ad for a local rage room and decided it was time for him to make his own. (His daughter, …
