New South Jetty is out

February 9 edition hitting news stands now

Several months ago, the federal government ordered that 67 barge moorings in Lydia Ann Channel be removed. Now the clock is ticking on a public comment period for just how that order should be carried out.

But the firm that owns the moorings is arguing that the moorings shouldn’t be removed at all.

Learn how you can make your voice heard on this issue by picking up the Feb. 9 edition of the South Jetty newspaper, which is hitting new stands as you read this.

Also in this edition, you’ll see:

• A photo of a 275-pound mako shark that recently was caught during an offshore fishing trip out of Port Aransas;

• A $2.5 million project that the local water department is about to undertake to prepare Port Aransas for future growth;

• How you can take part in a beach cleanup this weekend;

• Who has filed to run for the city council and school board in Port Aransas;

• An in-depth interview with Jeff Hentz, the new president and CEO of the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce and Tourist Bureau;

• How you can benefit the arts and rescue animals in Port Aransas and do some dancing at the same time at two different upcoming events;

• When you can see Port Aransas High School students competing on a game show on TV;

• Where you can go this Saturday to buy interesting stuff that Animal Rehabilitation Keep (ARK) Director Tony Amos has found on the beach (and you’ll be helping out the ARK when you do it);

• And when a new comedy will hit the stage at Port Aransas Community Theatre (it’s soon!);

These and other stories are in the Feb. 9 edition of the South Jetty, the most complete and accurate source of information for all things Port Aransas.
