The Jacksonville man killed at his Saturday night house party died because of an argument about how to cut barbecue, according to a Sheriff’s Office arrest report released Monday.

Joshua Andrew Heinz, 31, died early Sunday after police were called to his home in the 11000 block of North Santa Fe Street shortly before midnight Saturday, Sgt. Michael Paul said.

A witness told police a man named Chico was in the kitchen cutting barbecue when Heinz began arguing about how to cut the meat.

According to the witness, the other people in the home left at this time.

The witness told police he turned to open the patio door and heard a noise. When he turned around, he saw Chico standing over Heinz with a wooden bat kept by the door and Heinz on the floor.

The witness told police he took the baseball bat from Chico who then ran out the back door.

According to the arrest report, both Heinz and Chico had been drinking alcohol.

Chico was described as a black man, about 5-foot-10, 240 pounds with a medium length, black afro and goatee.

Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or First Coast Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-8477 (845-TIPS) to remain anonymous and be eligible for rewards.

November 28th 1925: The Grand Ole Opry Begins Broadcasting…

November 28th, 1925: “The Grand Ole Opry begins broadcasting from the new fifth-floor radio studio of the National Life & Accident Insurance Company in downtown Nashville, Tenn., as the “WSM Barn Dance.” The phrase “Grand Ole Opry” would first be uttered on air in December 1927. Over the years the show would move to bigger and bigger venues around Nashville, before landing in the downtown Ryman Auditorium in 1943 and then to the 4,400-seat Grand Ole Opry House, east of downtown Nashville, in March 1974.”

Also, on this day in 1964 (November 28th)  Willie Nelson makes his debut on the Grand Ole Opry.

I heard a quote today. I like it, but…

…after thinking about it, I’m not so sure I agree with it 100%.

I heard someone say “If you don’t work to improve yourself everyday then you are wasting your life.” At first, I liked the quote. I really try every day to improve some area of myself, whether it be exercise, study, or working on other goals…so I like the quote because of the idea of self-improvement. I definitely think it is a good thing to have goals in life. I know everybody should exercise for at least a few minutes, and I for sure think it’s good for somebody to study and learn new things…it should be enjoyable.

However, I don’t really agree that someone is wasting their life if they aren’t striving for improvement every day. Somebody could be perfectly happy with where they are at in life, they might be surrounded by good family who just likes having them around, or maybe they’ve dedicated their life to a certain cause that has nothing to do with themselves or their own improvement. Maybe a person can work to improve the lives of other people every day, maybe they take care of family…who’s to say?

Anyway, it’s rare that I actually make a blog post with words in it, but I’m up too late tonight and felt like writing my opinion about this quote, which I heard someone say after reading it on one of those stupid Facebook picture things that girls post with inspirational words on the picture.
