Raising the Bar: Atlantic Beach Facing Poor Cell Service

Residents in Atlantic Beach are making noise over their deteriorated cell phone service. Our own Jeannie Greenwald is at the center of it all – she faces a daily deluge of dropped calls and an AT&T iPhone that at times could be compared to a useless paperweight. “I look at the phone and it says […]

Keep the Ferry – and Historic A1A: Our Islands and Coastline Needs It

Florida’s Historic Highway A1A begins just south of the Georgia border, then comes east to hug the coastline all the way to Key West.  Mile Marker 0. We’ve all seen that white oval A1A decal.  It’s iconic. Remember that it’s northeast Florida’s A1A too, and the Mayport Ferry is part of that highway, the same […]

26.2 in Pictures, Part Two and The End.

This is our last installment of the 26.2 for 2012.  It was another smashing success, and as the cities remove the last of the evidence of the race – street markings, yard signage, banner flags that lined our Third Street (aka historic Highway State Road A1A), the neighbors, too, have race remnants around their yards.  The […]

A Photo Story: The 26.2 and the People Who Love It (Part One)

The race began ten minutes late, due to the shuttles’ schedule having been a bit delayed.  They waited for everyone to arrive…and gave us photographers a bit more light to work with as each minute brought sunrise nearer. She sports the number 1. She gives the runners a last-minute rallying call and thanks everyone.  Jacksonville […]

The 26.2: A View from the Starting Line at Mayo Clinic

We were at Mayo Clinic for the start of the coldest 26.2 yet. As the runners kept themselves wrapped in blankets or thermal wrap, or simply bounced about in the pre-dawn darkness to keep warm, Donna Deegan address the massive crowd with her inspiring rallying remarks just moments before the race began. She was followed […]

Small Plane Lands Safely in Atlantic Beach

We’re guessing everyone’s heard that a small plane landed in Atlantic Beach, on the beach at 17th Street,  Wednesday afternoon.  When we arrived on the scene at about 5:30pm we learned that the pilot and his dog had been the only occupants and were unharmed, as he’d safely landed the sputtering aircraft on the sand.
