Join us here on Facebook, on G10TV, or at g10tv.org at 10:30AM for the annual observance marking the 38th anniversary of the October 23, 1983 Beirut bombing. The observance will honor the fallen service members and survivors who served in Lebanon from 1958 to 1984 and in Grenada.

Out of an abundance of caution and with continued safety in mind for all participants, this year's observance will be closed to the public. The area around the Beirut Memorial will be secured at the time of the live broadcast of the event.

The observance is an annual event organized by the City of Jacksonville Beirut Memorial Advisory Board in cooperation with the City of Jacksonville, Marine Corps Installations East, and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

Students and Veterans deploy yellow ribbons at the Beirut Memorial Grove: The Beta Club from Northwoods Park Middle School and members of the Beirut Veterans Association met at the Beirut Memorial Grove across from Camp Geiger to hang yellow ribbons in honor of those who lost their lives on October 23, 1983 in the Beirut, Lebanon terrorist attacks. The president of the Beirut Veterans Association, Myron Kyle, also presented the students with memorabilia to remember their time together and thank them for their efforts.

The Jacksonville Environmental & Appearance Committee as well as the Onslow Civic Affairs Committee encourage all Citizens to hang yellow ribbons as well. The Environmental & Appearance Committee placed ribbons at the Freedom Fountain and City Hall.

The Beirut Memorial Observance, held annually on October 23, welcomes families, survivors and the community who come together to remember and honor those lost. This year's ceremony is virtual and can been seen on G10TV, g10tv.org, the City's page and YouTube channel

With National Pedestrian Safety Month coming up, Jacksonville Public Safety would like to remind pedestrians and drivers of the following tips.

Pedestrians:
- Be predictable. Follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals.
- Walk on sidewalks whenever they are available. If one isn’t available, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.
- Keep alert at all times; don’t be distracted by electronic devices that take your eyes (and ears) off the road.
- Whenever possible, cross streets at crosswalks or intersections, where drivers expect pedestrians, and look for cars in all directions, including those turning. If neither are available, locate a well-lit area where you have the best view of traffic. Wait for a gap in traffic that allows enough time to cross safely and continue to watch for traffic as you cross.
- Be visible at all times. Wear bright clothing during the day, and wear reflective materials or use a light at night. Never assume a driver sees you. Make eye contact with drivers as they approach to make sure you are seen.
- Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways, or backing up in parking lots.

Drivers:
- Look out for pedestrians everywhere, at all times. Safety is a shared responsibility.
- Use extra caution when driving in hard-to-see conditions, such as nighttime or bad weather.
- Slow down and be prepared to stop when turning or otherwise entering a crosswalk. Never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. There may be people crossing that you can’t see.
- Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and stop well back from the crosswalk to give other vehicles an opportunity to see and stop for the crossing pedestrians.
- Follow the speed limit, especially around people on the street. Follow slower speed limits in school zones and in neighborhoods where children are present.
- Be extra cautious when backing up as pedestrians can move into your path.

Town Center Update: Jacksonville City Council took action at the September 21, 2021 City Council Meeting to postpone any further City action to vacate 67 units of the Town Center Apartments until June 30, 2022. This action is not binding on the Town Center property owners who will have the final say on timeline for evictions.

Mayor Sammy Phillips recently announced that the City had reached an agreement between the City of Jacksonville and the owners of Town Center Apartments that extended an original October deadline for vacating dozens of rental units to December 31, 2021.

After hearing the pleas of residents during the Public Comment portion of Tuesday’s City Council meeting, City Council unanimously voted to extend the City’s deadline to June 30, 2022.

The City is in contact with the Town Center Apartment owners to form an agreement to extend the owners’ deadline for evictions until June 30, 2022. Town Center Apartment owners will have final say for their eviction timeline.

Affected Residents:
To assist those relocating within City limits, the City has established a fund through Onslow Community Outreach. This fund is in place to provide assistance with moving costs, down payments, and utility deposits. Residents of the designated 67 units who are relocating within the City limits may contact Onslow Community Outreach at 910 455-5733 or visit OnslowCo.org to request assistance.

Affected residents relocating outside of City limits may also call Onslow Community Outreach for similar assistance which has been established through the OSDRA (Onslow Strong Disaster Recovery Alliance). Onslow Community Outreach is the contact for this assistance fund.

Some private rental properties in Jacksonville are setting aside units especially for the residents of the 67 units. To apply for one of these rentals, residents can contact Onslow Community Outreach.

Private owners of area rentals who would like to make units available through this effort are encouraged to call Onslow Community Outreach at 910 455-5733.

YOUR TOWN SHOULD BE PROUD NOT Manager Orders Police to Remove Disabled Child from Movie Theater For Failing to Wear Face Mask (VIDEO) By Cristina Laila Published December 28, 2020 at 2:20pm 1362 Comments Share (1.8k) NOTICE HOW MUCH PPUBLICITY YOUR GETTING AND ITS DOING TO AFFECT YOUR WHOLE TOWN A manger ((( THE IDIOT )))) is seen on video ordering police to remove a disabled child from a Jacksonville, North Carolina AMC Theater for failing to wear a face mask. The manager of the AMC theater called the police and had the entire family removed. The family members were all wearing face masks, however the child, who was seen in a baby stroller and non-verbal, has a condition that prohibits her from wearing a face covering. What kind of society do we have when we don’t even show humanity and decency to a disabled child?
