Community Spotlight Will Focus on Stories from Area

Article excerpt

Byline: Rich Ray, Times-Union staff

Community Spotlight, a new weekly First Coast Community offering by Kristin DiFrancesco, features area events and local stories of interest. Since Community Spotlight is Web-based, in addition to Kristin's writings, you'll often find multimedia elements thrown into the mix. That's the case for the first event in the spotlight, the Jacksonville Humane Society Pet Expo.

Last weekend's pet-friendly extravaganza at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds attracted more than 4,000, helped find new homes for 22 homeless animals and raised funds to benefit the 16,000 abandoned animals that the Humane Society takes in each year. In addition to reading Kristin's column about the Pet Expo, link to photo galleries and watch her video coverage of the event., keyword: spotlight.

Make sure to watch Tracy Collins' video coverage from the game, featuring interviews with fans and footage from Learn to Read Inc.'s pregame Kiss the Pig for Literacy activities. And be sure to read journal entries from The Roar's Teresa Edwards and Jaxson de Ville. In his unique, not-so-humble way, Jaxson writes, "Well, well, well . . . you know how I hate to brag or toot my own horn but . . . Ha! I was right! We beat the Colts for the first time in franchise history thanks mostly to me!", keyword: jaguarsjournal.
