This Week @ RAM

This Saturday, the weather is supposed to be PERFECT for both the market AND Saturday night's movie. It will be a great day for visiting our artists and vendors, listening to some great music, and checking out the Antique Cars that will be showcased at the market!

And, we have a special celebrity on our Crossroads Stage, the one-man blues band, Mr. Delta Dave Johnson! You've just gotta see him, man, he's smooooth!

Also, I want to encourage you to "Think Pink @ RAM" this week, and wear pink in support of finding a cure for breast cancer. There will be a few special booths at RAM to provide related info and services.

Basketball Team to Bounce into Town Soon

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Several semi-pro basketball teams have set up shop in the River City, only to disappear after a short time. A new team is aiming to change that record.

We've had the Jacksonville Jam, The Jacksonville Slam, The Floridians, and the Jacksonville Stingrays.

The owner of a new team, that is yet to be named, is hoping for about 5,000 people to come out to each home game.

Fifteen home games will be played at the Veterans Memorial Arena starting in early December.

The new owner is no stranger to this area. He is local attorney Ron Sholes, who already owns the pub next door to the arena.

"We're confident there are basketball fans here in Jacksonville," said Sholes.

The new team doesn't have a name yet, but Sholes said give them about 10 days to come up with one.

Locals might remember past basketball teams like the Jacksonville Jam.
