Local Business to Observe Digital Moment of Silence for Sept 11

Jacksonville will observe a digital out-of-home (OOH) moment of silence for one hour and 17 minutes on September 11th. More than 450 of Clear Channel’s digital billboards in 23 markets across the nation will display the OAAA’s rotating memorial ad creative, reading “Pause and Reflect,” to commemorate the moments on September 11, 2001 during which American Airlines Flight 11 collided into the World Trade Center’s landmark North Tower, United Airlines Flight 175 impacted the South Tower, American Airlines Flight 77 hit the western side of the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, and United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Happy Birthday Haleigh Cummings!

On August 17, 2011 Haleigh Cummings would have celebrated her 8th birthday!

In loving memory her mother, Crystal Sheffield, and other local supporters gathered in the center of Downtown Palatka encouraging anyone and everyone to pull over and release a balloon in honor of sweet Haleigh's 8th Birthday.

Later that evening Haleigh sent a sign from above that she appreciated the birthday balloons, with a colorful rainbow.

From Palatka, Florida to Guanaja, Honduras

From Palatka, Florida to Guanaja, Honduras

Getting to the village of Savannah Bight in Guanaja, Honduras is not an easy thing to do, but well worth the effort.  It's a place like most of us cannot imagine.  No malls or grocery stores, no mail carriers to fill your mailbox.  My TV had one channel, ESPN.

First, let me tell you I am not from Palatka, I live in Fleming Island. But, Palatka was very important to the success of the trip.
