Favorite Things about Jacksonville the City's Environmental Aspects Such as Sunshine, Manatees and the River Top the List among duPont Middle School Sixth-Graders


The Museum of Science and History is celebrating the

Jacksonville metropolitan area reaching the million-population

mark today. There will be displays, exhibits and a specially

designated wall provided for visitors to write their thoughts

about Jacksonville being a million-plus city.

"Million Day at MOSH" runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today

at the museum, 1025 Museum Circle.

Artifacts from the event will be included in the museum's

new $1million exhibit, "Current of Time: A History of Jacksonville

and Northeast Florida," due to open in December. Objects

are now being collected for the exhibit.

The museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.

to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from

1 to 6 p.m.

Last week, students from duPont Middle School visited

the museum and wrote their own top 10 favorite things about

Jacksonville. Here's a sampling of what they had to

say.

Alexis Torres said Jacksonville "is full of very friendly

people," and "the spring time is cool and warm."

Aaron Nielsens likes Jacksonville because "We don't have

to shovel snow," and "It has great business

opportunities."

Aaron expanded on the latter, remarking: "We excel in

agriculture and other goods."

"We have plenty of manatees and dolphins," wrote Doug

Hibbitts.
