Curtis DeWitt for (Unofficial) Jax Beach Mayor

“I guess I have built something.” By Ambar Ramirez and Carmen Macri It was a sunny afternoon when “Folio” arrived at the sky blue-painted hotel located on Atlantic Blvd. We had heard whispers of a man who runs an empire out of Jacksonville’s beaches, so we decided to meet with the man behind it all. Curtis DeWitt started from humble beginnings, but through dedication and immense love for the city he calls home, he has made it his mission to transform the beaches into a hospitable hotspot. Dewitt not only runs Beach Life Rentals from St. Augustine Beach to Atlantic, …

1904 Music Hall: The Day the Music Died

1904 Music Hall: The Day the Music Died Words by Amiyah Golden   The essence of artistry resides in various nooks and crannies around the city. With spaces like 1904 being a pillar of support in the ever-growing Jacksonville music scene and beyond for the last decade, the time has come for the business to transition into a new chapter. With owners making the call to focus their time and energy into their sister business, Underbelly, we commemorate the impact this establishment has had on music and the community.   Three friends purchased a building at 19 Ocean Street Downtown …

Brics & Bouqs

Brickbat    To Ron DeSantis (again) for permanently removing AP Psychology courses from all Florida high school curricula. According to DeSantis, the mere chapters in an AP Psych book that discuss gender identity and sexual orientation are enough to tarnish the minds of our youth — even though the class only focuses on how sex and gender influence socialization and other aspects of development. For someone who hates the discussion of gender studies, it sure is all he can talk about! Maybe gender identity is something he struggles with?    Bouquet To Winn-Dixie Bloomin’ 4 Good Program for supporting local …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs, I really love your podcast. I now look forward to Monday, so thank you. Could you do a few more a week? That’s a serious question. Now to my real question. I’m an attractive 45-year-old traveling nurse. I absolutely love my job, but the only way to make any money is to travel from town to town. I’ve found ways to enjoy that aspect, but it has taken a toll on maintaining any sort of lasting romantic relationship. I get asked out a lot and I do go. I’ve met some interesting men, but understanding the gravity of …

The Land of the Free… and Designer Drugs. 

The Land of the Free… and Designer Drugs.  “One pill can kill”    Words by Carmen Macri and Ambar Ramirez    A novel synthetic substance is rapidly spreading through Jacksonville — with potentially deadly consequences. Known as “N” for N-Dimethyl Pentylamine (hydrochloride), this drug falls under the category of cathinone, which are natural stimulants derived from Khat, a plant that is illegal in the United States. However, the version of the drug surfacing in Jacksonville is entirely synthetic, combining a hazardous blend of chemicals designed to imitate the effects of the natural stimulant.    The narcotic is a white or …
