withdrawn usually  means no vote was taken.  It can always resurface...

I've talked with three city council members privately today on the subject... if that bill went to vote, it may have gotten 2 votes.  Most thought Redman's bill was what it was: short sighted, harmful to the city and nonsensical.

Actually, a very economical and attractive solution was presented to me today (suggested by someone who reads the message board).  Hopefully we'll hear more about this in the future and Metro Park begins to be better utilized (currently it's a rotting riverfront asset... something we sadly have an abundant supply of).

The Welcome to Rockville music festival returns for a third go-round in April, this time spread over two days and featuring a distinctly Jacksonville flavor.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, Limp Bizkit and Shinedown – all with deep roots in Jacksonville – are among the acts scheduled to perform. Others include Alice in Chains, 3 Doors Down, Stone Sour, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Bullet for My Valentine and Asking Alexandria.

Redman's gonna have a coronary!
