The piece in the paper about Tony Allegretti skateboarding across from the Chamber was pure genius:

Another great downtown event. Is the city listening?
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

If the City is not listening , GET ON THE MEGAPHONE.

Pictures speak 1000 words and this photo-essay says it all.

Tremendous job, Metro Jacksonville!!!!
