Sea Turtle Nesting Season has Ended

St. Johns County officials have announced that sea turtle nesting season has officially ended. Although October 31st marked the traditional end of the season, St. Johns County extended the season until the last four turtle nests hatched, in compliance with the County’s Habitat Conservation Plan.

The 2010 season was record-breaking for St. Johns County, with a total of 902 turtle nests on the 41 miles of beaches. This is the most since the County began keeping records in 1988. By comparison, last year the total was 270 nests, and the average prior to this year was 255. Beaches throughout Florida saw an increase in turtle nests, but officials are unsure what caused the increase. Data from more than one year will be needed to make any conclusions.

Proposed Church Cell Tower Causes Conflict

The River of Life Church  wants the St. Johns Zoning Board to approve a cell tower, in the shape of a cross to be erected on their land.

Operation-Medicine Cabinet, Nov. 13th

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is once again hosting “Operation-Medicine Cabinet” on Saturday November 13th. This is a Pharmaceutical Take Back program, a prescription for safe kids and a clean environment.

When old medications are kept in your house it increases the chance for illegal use and theft. But the question remains on how to get rid of expired or old medication? You don’t want to flush them, because that would send them into our water system which could contaminate our water supply as well as our drinking water.
