Pier 17 is a high priced flea market booth.

Is your dumpster leaking from all the rain. You're at the library early this morning.

I knew Grace as one of the most fascinating individuals to "grace" this earth. Besides her brilliant mind, she was a active business woman that holds the record for years of business ownership in Jacksonville.

She worked every day of her life up until May of this year. Grace was truly royalty in my world.

Shame on anyone that would write anything harmful to her name. God Bless Grace Rogers.

My husband still has the first Grumman canoe he bought from her years ago. We saw her regularly at the Jax Boat show and she always remembered him. We should all hope to be as active mentally and physically in our twilight years as she was. I hope the angels have a couple of extra canoe paddles waiting for her.

This is Real Jacksonville history, why cant we name roads and stuff here in town for people like this?
This is someone that actually contributed to our city, instead on Martin Luther King or Ronnie Reagan whatevers?

exactly demonseye....i dont know much about her but i can tell you this...for her to buck the system to early when women had fewer rights than blacks (no i dont think blacks dont deserve equal rights) and become a very successful woman with a lifelong profitable business says a lot about the woman...

Hank loves to talk down to people. Too bad that he does not have the stature to do so. She was a nice lady.
