For many people work is not much more than a means to the end. We get up, go to work and come home. Day after day. After day. We work hard so we can play hard, then events like the PLAYERS Championship come along and we take a day or two off from work so […]

Raising the Bar: Atlantic Beach Facing Poor Cell Service

Residents in Atlantic Beach are making noise over their deteriorated cell phone service. Our own Jeannie Greenwald is at the center of it all – she faces a daily deluge of dropped calls and an AT&T iPhone that at times could be compared to a useless paperweight. “I look at the phone and it says […]
