St. Augustine man hopes to pay it forward

Chris Crow, who has been deaf since he was 3 years old, was born with cerebral palsy, making the wheelchair ramp leading into his family’s St. Augustine home vital.

Lately the wooden ramp has been in a state of disrepair and in dire need of fixing.

Damaged by weather and mold, Chris says the ramp has become unusable.

“It’s just really not safe for people who have disabilities and wheelchairs who are afraid, who are scared, that they might fall,” Chris said through an interpreter. “It’s just not a safe situation.”

Group asks St. Augustine mayor to rescind pope invitation

While there may be mixed emotions about Pope Francis being invited to St. Augustine for the 450th, one organization called the invitation “fiscally reckless.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), on behalf of its Florida chapter, sent a letter to Mayor Joe Boles on Monday asking that he withdraw his invitation to Pope Francis to visit St. Augustine when he comes to the U.S. in 2015.

In a letter, the Pope’s U.S. representative has confirmed receiving the invitation but did not say whether the Pope would come to St. Augustine.

Sixty-six potential jurors in the Michael Dunn murder trial will return Wednesday to the Duval County Courthouse for what is expected to be the final day of jury selection.

Circuit Judge Russell Healey and lawyers for the prosecution and defense are trying to pick a 12-person jury with four alternates that will spend at least a week hearing evidence on whether Dunn, 47, is guilty of the first-degree murder of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Jurors will be sequestered and put up in a hotel room Thursday night, assuming opening statements begin, until the end of the trial.

Around the Region: Lots of twists and turns in Vilano's history

“Life’s like a road you travel on when there’s one day here and the next day gone,” in the words of songwriter Tom Cochrane’s Life is a Highway. These words seem to characterize what the Vilano Beach Main Street volunteers are attempting to document in their current book project. Trails, roadways, and waterway routes twist and turn throughout history. Early settlers along these major transportation corridors definitely influenced the community character and its culture. For much of St. Augustine’s history, waterway and railway access molded commerce and fortune.

Florida State University ready to pick president

TALLAHASSEE — Florida State University is set to pick a new president today, despite criticism from some students and faculty that the search has been designed the entire time to steer the job to powerful state Sen. John Thrasher.

Thrasher is the chairman of Gov. Rick Scott’s re-election committee and was among the list of four finalists chosen on Monday to interview with FSU’s board. The other three candidates already hold jobs in higher education in Alabama, West Virginia and Colorado. Thrasher is an attorney who has also been a speaker of the Florida House and a lobbyist.

Mondays are Dark

Happy Labor Day!
It’s been a long hot summer here in South Florida.  But despite summer being the “off-season,” there isn’t a single weekend without  a show on stage somewhere.
You might have noticed our “new” old look.  After a lot of consideration – and people asking why there wasn’t stuff on the page that has been here all along – we’ve returned to our former template.   Everything is in view and easy to find.  But you may notice some strange formatting in some articles as we migrate back.
And now here’s your Monday reading list.

Photo by Gabriel Zenone, nipped from FacebookLabor of Love

While it IS Labor Day, and a national holiday, and a Monday, there is one theatre that is not actually dark.  Actors’ Playhouse is hosting the wedding of local actors Shane Tanner and Amy Miller BrennanThe Miami Herald tells us about a romance that could only happen in theatre.
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Miller!

South Floridian On Tour

Florida Theater On Stage fills us in on the girl playing the title role in the national tour of Annie, which will be opening the Broward Center’s 2014-15 season on October 7.  Issie Swickle of Davie has been studying at Broadway Kids Studio.  You may recall that another BKS student, Kellie Kessling, took a star turn in Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy at the Broward Center back in July.  That Michelle Ameerally is doing something right.

South Florida Favorite  Steps In

Talley Sessions is not from South Florida, but he’s played here often.  Playbill reports that he’s joined the cast of Holiday Inn at the renowned Goodspeed Opera House.  You may be familiar with the Goodspeed: it’s where Annie was born.  Not South Florida enough for you?  OK, Karl Skylar Urban is also in the cast – you’d have seen him at GableStage in The Whale.  Of course, some of us are stuck remembering him as the title role in Stuart Little at Actors’ Playhouse because we’re old like that.

New Company In Town

Boca Mag reports that there’s a new theatre company in town – The Nicest Theatre Company
The Nicest Theatre Company—which actually derives its name from a portmanteau of its three founders’ first names, Nick Rapuano, Celine Boccia and Stephanie Suau—will launch the first show of its 2014-2015 season, “Cabaret,” this Friday at Showtime Performing Arts Theater in Boca Raton.
Who knew?

New Plays a Comin’

Florida Theater On Stage reports that Palm Beach Dramaworks is committing to developing new plays over the next few years.
…Hayes and Dramaworkshop chairman Mark Perlberg are certain the market for new work exists because a portion of their audience has told them so.
“One of the reasons our organization started so small is because we had to find that audience and build that audience,” Hayes said. As far back as when Dramaworks was mounting Albee plays in a small storefront, “people said we need to do this; we need some intellectual theater going on.”
If they do this even half as well as they’ve done everything else, we’re in for a treat.


The Royal Poinciana Playhouse remains closed.  The theater, which was shut down by its then-owner Clear Channel Communications in 2004, has been in the news once or twice, but the Palm Beach Daily News reports that the property is under new management.

Cooley said he hopes the new company will be more serious than Sterling has been about bringing the long-shuttered Royal Poinciana Playhouse back into operation. Sterling’s lease with the National Arts Institute to operate the Playhouse “was really nothing more than a stall tactic,” he said.

The NAI still has a valid lease, although we haven’t heard much from them since they signed it.

What the?!?!

Yeah, we've gone back to our previous template.  Yeah, it was a slick layout, with all the customization that as far as we know no one ever used, but too much of our useful content was too hard to find.

So we're putting it back like it used to be, kinda-sorta.  If it's missing, you can let us know, but chances are we are already working on it.
