New South Jetty is out

Oct. 12 edition hitting streets now

Six huge barges have remained stranded hundreds of yards inland on San Jose Island (also known as Saint Joe) ever since Hurricane Harvey struck. We made some calls to find out what the fate of those vessels might end up being. You can see what we found out if you pick up the Oct. 12 edition of the South Jetty, which is hitting news stands in Port Aransas right now.

Also in this issue, you’ll see:

• What officials are planning for schools to restart in Port Aransas, more than seven weeks after Hurricane Harvey closed campuses down;

• Who was arrested following a recent high-speed police pursuit in Port Aransas;
