Jake Sachs endorsed for NSB City Commission / Headline Surfer®Stephren Sather cocaine plea / Headline Surfer®Steve Sather, with cocaine past, running for NSB City Commission / Headline Surfer®NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- There is a reason why Stephen P. Sather goes by "Steve Sather" in his run for the zone 2 seat on the New Smyrna Beach City Commission. There's less of a chance anyone looking him up in the Google search engine will find the ugly truth behind his drug past.

Intrigity counts in this race and that is why Jake Sachs deserves the support of the voters for the zone 2 seat in Tuesday's general election.

Open letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott on corruption in Volusia County / Headline Surfer®DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The "Open Letter to Gov. Rick Scott" regarding government corruption in Volusia County and the need for intervention is undergoing a series of fact checks and polishing of the writing to ensure it is clear, concise and on point.

Once this process is completed, the letter will be published on HeadlineSurfer.com today and a copy sent to the governor's press office. 

Because Headline Surfer® is a small operation with no network affiliations, the internet newspaper will reach out to select media outlets and alert them to the published story and links to the coverage since there are some sidebar elements as well.

The internet newspaper had hoped to have it published on Sunday as promoted, but as things turned out, that was an ambitious goal that in hindsight wasn't realistic.

The costume was a big hit since New Smyrna Beach is known as the Shark Bite Capital of the World. The young family left the parade with a trophy almost as big as the little shark boy.

"This is a great event for families," said Nicole Kirkland, who made the costume from $20 worth of materials she purchased at Target.
