The 1st Annual Octoberfest this last Sunday, Oct. 16th turned into the Hurricane Matthew Relief at the Center For Spiritual Living, in St. Augustine.

St Augustine Police Chief Loran Lueders is retiring Nov.30th 2016 and Assistant Chief Barry Fox is stepping into that position on Dec.1st 2016, First Coast TV felt the urge to talk to them both while they were still serving our community of St Augustine, and this is what they had to say.
First Coast.TV went by a house that dodged a monster tree and from there on to neighborhoods cleaning up, like Lincolnville & Davis Shores. The spirit among those doing the cleanup is high, and grateful to be alive and hopeful for the future.
First Coast.TV headed to Vilano Beach to see the effect of hurricane Mathew on this lovely beach community. What we saw was heartbreaking.
First Coast.TV survived Hurricane Mathhew in the city of St Augustine, as so did many others who decided to stay in the city and ride the storm. But many left the city to find refuge with friends, family, and to city shelters.

First Coast.TV cruised the streets of St Augustine before hurricane Matthew hits. Are you gone or ready?

A group of our community in St Augustine organized by Jessica O’Connor – Fusch, sat in silence holding the space for peace for 30 minutes at the NW location of the Fort Castillo de San Marcos. They prayed and meditated for the purpose of bringing peace to the world on the international day of peace. Some of the 39 that came, came dressed in white for the International day of peace. They also wanted to share this event with their churches, yoga studios, schools, and, anywhere they frequented! The day was stunningly beautiful for such a lovely event, like a blessing.
