New South Jetty is out

February 16 edition hitting news stands now

Port Aransas has endured three structure fires within the span of just about one month. So we asked the town’s fire chief if he thinks they might be related. You can see his answer by picking up the Feb. 16 edition of the South Jetty newspaper, which is hitting new stands as you read this.
