Outgoing owners Wayne and Delores Weaver inducted in Pride of the Jaguars

The Jaguars send Wayne and Delores Weaver out on a high note.

At halftime of the Jaguars' 19-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts, the Jaguars honored their outgoing owners with a video tribute and gifts.

The team presented the team's founders with a pair of gold-plated helmets -- but it was another gift that no one saw coming that stirred the emotions.

In a surprise move, the Jaguars inducted the Weavers into the Pride of the Jaguars ring of honor.

The tarp covering the names of Wayne and Delores Weaver was colored in the same pattern as the facade dividing the lower and upper bowl of the stadium's west stands, effectively camouflaging it.

"I had no idea that was going on," an emotional Weaver told reporters after the game.

Weaver said he will continue going to Jaguars games despite no longer being the team's owner.

"Delores and I haven't missed a game in the 17 seasons -- 352 games," Weaver said.  "We won't make every game in the future, but we'll make most."

  • President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced a proposal to drastically cut taxes for corporations and simplify the tax filing system for individuals. Companies would see a business tax rate of 15 percent, down from 35 percent, and individuals would benefit from a doubling of the standard deduction and a simplified form to fill out on tax day each year. Here is what was proposed on Wednesday: Reduce the seven tax brackets to three brackets of 10 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent. Double the standard deduction. Increase tax relief for families with child and dependent care expenses. Eliminate targeted tax breaks for the wealthiest taxpayers. Keep mortgage interest and charitable gift tax deductions, but eliminate other itemized deductions. Repeal the alternative minimum tax. Repeal the “death tax.” Drop the business tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent. Implement a one-time tax (a repatriation tax) on trillions of dollars held overseas. What does it mean? Tax bracketTax brackets indicate the rate at which you pay on portions of your income. Taxpayers will pay the lowest rate up to a certain amount, the next highest rate on the next portion, then the highest rate on the rest of their income. As an example using the tax rates suggested by Trump – 10, 25 and 35 percent -- income from $1 to $10,000 would be taxed at 10 percent; $10,001 to $20,000 at 25 percent; and income over $20,001 at 35 percent. Standard deductionThe standard deduction is a set amount of income that is not subject to being taxed. A taxpayer can choose to use the standard deduction or can itemize allowed deductions to lower a tax bill. Single taxpayers can claim a $6,300 standard deduction; married couples can take a $12,600 deduction and a person filing taxes as “head of household” can deduct $9,300. Alternative minimum tax According to the Tax Policy Center, the alternative minimum tax “operates alongside regular income tax. It requires many taxpayers to calculate their liability twice – once under the rules for the regular income tax and once under the AMT rules – and then pay the higher amount. Originally intended to prevent perceived abuses by a handful of the very rich, it now affects almost 5 million filers.”  The AMT was designed to stop wealthy taxpayers from using too many loopholes to avoid paying taxes. Death taxThe estate tax, or “death tax,” is a tax “on your right to transfer property at your death,” according to the Internal Revenue Service. The value of the property and cash you own when you die is calculated and the amount arrived at is taxed. It's good news if you have a small estate: The IRS offers an exemption on the first $5.49 million. Six states – Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey and Pennsylvania – impose an inheritance tax. That means that if you live in one of those states when you die, your beneficiaries will likely owe a tax on what you leave them. Tax repatriation A repatriated tax break is an arrangement directed at multinational corporations that offers a one-time tax break on money earned in foreign countries. U.S. companies hold cash – an estimated $2.5 trillion -- overseas to avoid paying a 35 percent tax on foreign earnings. The last repatriated break taxed foreign earnings at a rate of 5.25 percent.  Trump has proposed that overseas earnings would be deemed repatriated and taxed one time, at 10 percent.

  • Police arrested a man Wednesday morning after authorities found a missing woman trapped inside his shed. >> Read more trending news Jennifer Elliot was reported missing just after midnight Wednesday and was found around 4 a.m. after residents heard her cries coming from a shed on Central Avenue in Blanchester.  Police went to the 100 block of Central Avenue after a neighbor reported hearing screams coming from the property. Once authorities arrived, they entered a shed in the backyard and found a woman in a well hole covered by multiple objects. Authorities arrested Dennis Dunn on kidnapping charges after a four-hour standoff with Blanchester police. He was taken to the Clinton County Jail.  Elliot was taken to the hospital and has since been released. Police said officers saw no obvious signs of physical trauma to Elliott. Police said Elliot had previously reported that Dunn harassed her. Elliott and Dunn live on the same street.

  • The jury that will sit over the federal fraud trial of now-former Congresswoman Corrine Brown has been chosen. Seven men and five women are on the panel. Four alternates have also been chosen- not two as the initial court order stated. The alternates will not be told they are alternates ahead of the trial, instead, they’ve been mixed in among the others and the group is sitting as a body of 16. US Magistrate Judge James Klindt, who presided over the two-and-a-half day selection process, says they sat four alternates because of the anticipated length of the trial- at three weeks. By the observation of our reporter in the courtroom, the 12 person panel appears to be three white females, five white males, two black females, one black male, and one Hispanic male. Nine of the jurors live in Jacksonville, one in Bunnell, one in Middleburg, and one couldn’t be determined by our reporter in the courtroom because it was not clearly stated by the juror. US District Judge Timothy Corrigan- who is presiding over the trial- took the bench for the first time just ahead of 11:15AM, had the jury sworn in, and then issued instructions to the panel. The instructions included reinforcing that the jurors cannot speak to anyone about the case, and that none of the parties involved in the case should be approaching them through the trial itself.  “Our whole system depends upon the fact that this case is decided in this courtroom on the evidence in this courtroom, and nothing else,” Corrigan told the jury. Opening statements begin at 1 PM. JUROR DETAILS:  Juror 1- black male from Jacksonville, high school education, single and never married. He works in merchandising for a soda company.
