Swashbuckling Captain Jack Comes Ashore -
Stop The Presses! Hurricane Michael Upends Printing Operations -

Island Times is printed in the press room of the Panama City News Herald. The press, its building and operators fell victim to the ravages of Hurricane Michael. 

Fortunately, the News Herald is part of the Gatehouse Media family of publications. A big corporation with some really nice folks.  Shane Spence at the News Herald, Santa Rosa Press Gazette Publisher Jim Fletcher, Chuck Chambers at the Sarasota Herald Tribune and Stephen Fowler at the Tuscaloosa News played a huge roll in getting Island Times printed. For that, we remain grateful. 

A truck driven from Montgomery, Alabama by two affable fellows delivered Island Times at 3 a.m. October 15. Savor this edition of Island Times... grab a copy at your favorite beach, Gulf Breeze or Pensacola location. Online. https://indd.adobe.com/view/c2483745-7dc9-448c-ac3f-06cf57f1f468

The road between Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach (J Earle Bowden Way, Highway 399) is closed. It will remain closed for repairs until January. 

Bob Sikes Bridge Toll is once again being collected. $1 toll is payable cash or SunPass
