Episode 22: Philippe Boets & Petanque America

For this episode we are back at The Patio Place talking with Philippe Boets about Petanque America, the upcoming tournament and his love of Amelia Island.

Philippe brought us several goodies including stickers and cookies from one of the tournament sponsors Jules Destrooper a Belgium cookie company that gives a box of Butter Crisps to each player.

The Petanque America Tournament is this coming weekend: Friday Nov. 10th, Saturday Nov. 11th and Sunday Nov. 12th and there will be players coming from around the world.




Episode 21: Haunted Fernandina

This is a very haunted episode of Under the 8 from Bosque Bello Cemetery, a notoriously spirit filled spot on the island. Sherry Roberteen, a Fernandina local who is the keeper of some of the areas best kept stories, will tell tales of ghostly sightings around the island.

Episode 20: Group 2 Candidate for City Commission

This episode is the second episode of our two part series with candidates for Fernandina Beach City Commission.  We are talking with candidate Phillip Chapman at BUYGO.

It was important to us to provide equal time to all candidates for City Commission. We asked the other candidate in Group 2  Tim Poynter, (currently seated on the Council) to interview as well in order to give all candidates fair time but Poynter declined.

Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday Nov. 7th (more information here: https://www.votenassau.com/

Our greatest right and responsibility is voting.  Make your voice heard.

Episode 19: Group 3 Candidates for City Commission

Today we were at Buy-Go with the three candidates for Fernandina Beach City Commission: Chip Ross, Medardo Monzon & Orlando Avila. We posed the questions that the community asked on Facebook. This is your chance to learn more about  the City Commission candidates. We hope you take this information and exercise our greatest right and responsibility as Americans: voting.

Thank you to the community members who took us up on the  invite  to be a part of the audience for this recording.
