Thank you for your newspaper’s long and enduring service to the J'ville community. Your newspaper has an outstanding history. You and the Tomato Bowl. I was born and raised in J’ville during the 60s-70s with the Jacksonville Daily Progress until joining the Navy. Unfortunately, living in Europe I can no longer access the J'ville Daily Progress online so I troll your FB page reading the headlines. I check in to keep up with what's going on back home. Thinking of y'all. You are in my prayers during these difficult days (COVID-19). Stay safe! 🙏
