Dorian’s storm surge brings disappointing end to strong sea turtle nesting season Dorian. “Unfortunately, when you get into the fall months, nests are susceptible to storms,” Fahey said. Of the final three nests remaining when Dorian passed near Wrightsville Beach in early September, only one hatched, volunteers discovered last week after performing the final nest excavations of the year. Of the 11 nests this year, eight hatched, though the fate of the turtles from one nest is unknown, after volunteers believed light may have distracted the hatchlings, though in one account, bystanders may have helped get some of the turtles to sea. While Fahey said she didn’t know the extent of the storm surge in early September, judging by the time the nests were discovered, and the relative age of the unhatched eggs in the nests, she believed that the hurricane’s storm surge likely flooded the nests, preventing their hatching. If loggerhead turtles don’t lay lay

Harbor Way Gardens, Pretty in Pink
In years past, the Harbor Island Garden Club wrote the names of those who battled breast cancer on pink ribbons affixing them to what became known as the Pink Ribbon Tree, cascading from her limbs embracing and riding on the ocean breeze throughout the month of October in Harbor Way Gardens . Last year, thanks to Florence that tree was damaged, which along with the garden’s closure, made it impossible to hang the ribbons from the tree. Instead, garden club members hung several pink ribbons from the garden’s arbor entrance. This year the Harbor Island Garden Club continued this tradition adorning the arbor with ribbons of pink bringing awareness and remembrance to our island community. - Sherri Robinson
NCSU study shows historical levels of PFAS levels in Cape Fear River A soon-to-be-published research paper reports that analysis of a 2015 water sample from the Cape Fear indicated a concentration of total PFAS of 130,000 parts per trillion (ppt), Dr. Detlef Knappe, a professor at N.C. State University, wrote in an email to state regulators and CFPUA. “We characterized for the first time archived samples from 2014 and 2015 using an expanded suite of fluoroether standards,” Dr. Knappe wrote in summarizing paper’s key findings. “The 2014 sample was collected at Huske Dam, just downstream of the Chemours WW (wastewater) discharge. It had a total PFAS concentration of almost 1 mg/L (a million ng/L)! The 2015 sample was collected at Lock and Dam 1, and its total PFAS concentration was 130,000 ng/L. Given its fairly typical GenX concentration of 780 ng/L, I think results for this sample provide a reasonable snapshot of PFAS levels in drinking
water of communities that sourced their water at Lock and Dam 1 prior to discharge control at the Fayetteville Works in mid-June of 2017.” (Note: ng/L is nanograms per liter, which is equivalent to parts per trillion.) Dr. Knappe sent the email Monday evening to staff at the North Carolina departments of Environmental Quality and Health and Human Services and to Jim Flechtner, CFPUA executive director. The paper’s authors include researchers from N.C. State and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Dr. Knappe stated the paper had been accepted for publication in the journal Environmental Science & Technology Letters. Dr. Knappe also wrote that “perfluorinated ethers, such as PFMOAA, PFO2HxA, and GenX are highly persistent chemicals” and that the study results “suggest that these chemicals are as pern See PFAS Page 2 sistent as historically
WB, New Hanover County to provide free flu vaccines in October New Hanover County Public Health, in collaboration with community partners, will offer a free flu vaccination events in October, including one in Wrightsville Beach. Starting this weekend, on Saturday, October 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or until the vaccine runs out. This event will take place in downtown Wilmington in the Cape Fear Community College student parking lot
between Hanover and Brunswick streets, beside the Schwartz Center. The public health department will also offer flu vaccinations on Wednesday, Oct. 23 in Wrightsville Beach. The flu shots will be administered at the Wrightsville Beach Town Hall chambers from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. The event is open to the public, but a picture identification and insurance card is required. Flu

New Hanover County will also be practicing its plans to rapidly dispense vaccines to the public in the event of a public health emergency. “By using our Point of Dispensing Plan to actually run a real drive through vaccination clinic, we will be able to test our plans on a level that is hard to accomplish through a role playing exercise,” said New Hanover County Public Health
Preparedness Coordinator Lisa Brown. “The added benefit is that we can better prepare our community for flu season.” A Point of Dispensing Plan is a best practice model designed to provide medications, vaccines or medical supplies to a large community during a health emergency. During the Point of Dispensing exercise, 1,000 flu shots will be administered.

Wilmington Native Serves with Versatile U.S. Navy Helicopter Squadron Half a World Away in Guam By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Amanda Rae Moreno Navy Office of Community Outreach
ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam – A 2010 Wilmington Christian Academy graduate and Wilmington, North Carolina, native is serving in the U.S. Navy with Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 on the island of Guam. Lt. Zachary Judson is a pilot serving with HSC 25, known as the “Island Knights,” a versatile squadron that’s capable of completing a number of important missions for the Navy with the MH-60S “Seahawk” helicopter. A pilot is responsible for the safe operation and navigation of the helicopters to ensure missions are accomplished. Judson credits success in the Navy to many of the lessons learned in Wilmington. “I learned about southern hospitality and being able to treat everyone as family,” said Judson. “We are like a big family here in the squadron.” HSC-25 is the first and only forward-deployed vertical replenishment (VERTREP) squadron in the Navy and is tasked with supporting Seventh Fleet
units in the Western Pacific, Indian Ocean, North Arabian Sea, and Persian Gulf. To provide this support, HSC-25 embarks two-aircraft detachments aboard Military Sealift Command vessels which provide transportation of equipment, fuel, supplies and ammunition to sustain U.S. forces worldwide. They are the only Navy squadron based at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. In addition to VERTREP, HSC-25 provides 24-hour Search-and-Rescue/Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) services for Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. Averaging more than 30 rescues and 70 MEDEVACs per year, HSC-25 also conducts airborne firefighting using externally-carried buckets, Vertical Onboard Delivery (VOD), drone and torpedo recovery, special operations airborne support, and fleet logistics support for all military activities in the Guam area, including the Maritime Prepositioned Ships operating in the local area. “The best part about this job is the people," Judson said. "They make the job much easier and much more rewarding when you see their hard work pay off.” According to officials at the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet headquarters in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the
ships, submarines, aircraft and Navy personnel forward-deployed to Guam are part of the world’s largest fleet command and serve in a region critical to U.S. national security. The U.S. Pacific Fleet encompasses 100 million square miles, nearly half the Earth’s surface, from Antarctica to the Arctic Circle and from the West Coast of the United States into the Indian Ocean. All told, there are more than 200 ships and submarines, nearly 1,200 aircraft, and more than 130,000 uniformed and civilian personnel serving in the Pacific. Serving in the Navy means Judson is part of a world that is taking on new importance in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness, strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy. A key element of the Navy the nation needs is tied to the fact that America is a maritime nation, and that the nation’s prosperity is tied to the ability to operate freely on the world’s oceans. More than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water; 80 percent of the world’s population lives close to a coast; and 90 percent of all global trade by volume travels by sea. “Our priorities center on people, capabilities and

processes, and will be achieved by our focus on speed, value, results and partnerships,” said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. “Readiness, lethality and modernization are the requirements driving these priorities.” Though there are many ways for sailors to earn distinction in their command, community, and career, Judson is most proud of making aircraft commander. “That's what you strive for as a pilot," said Judson. "It's the
biggest qualification you can get at your fleet squadron.” As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon assets, Judson and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes, one that will provide a critical component of the Navy the nation needs. “I have wanted to serve for a long time," added Judson. "My dad was a police officer and my brother has served as well. Being able to wear this uniform is a huge accomplishment.”
used PFASs, such as PFOA and PFOS.” PFMOAA, PFO2HxA, and GenX are Continued from Page 1 among a list of PFAS identified by state regulators as originating at the Chemours chemical plant at the Fayetteville Works industrial site on the Bladen-Cumberland county line. Chemours told state and local officials in June 2017 that GenX and other PFAS in the Cape Fear River, originally discovered by Dr. Knappe and other researchers, had been discharged by its plant as a byproduct of manufacturing operations that had been ongoing since about 1980. Chemours was created as a spinoff company by DuPont, which originally owned the Fayetteville Works. The state suspended Chemours’ privilege to discharge into the river in 2017 and pressed the company to institute measures to curb its air emissions, which have been tied by regulators to extensive groundwater contamination. Those and other actions by state regulators have reduced levels of PFAS in the river. Even so, CFPUA consistently detects Chemours’ PFAS in water it withdraws from the Cape Fear. The most recent test results (from water sampled September 9) indicated a total PFAS concentration of 377 ppt in raw (unfinished) water. Regulators have stated that highly contaminated groundwater at the Fayetteville Works could be migrating to the river. Researchers also believe PFAS likely is in river sediment downstream from the plant. CFPUA has devoted significant resources to quantify and address the effects Chemours’ and DuPont’s PFAS releases on our community. We monitor PFAS concentrations in raw and finished water at Sweeney Water Treatment Plant
and groundwater at our wells in New Hanover County. We conducted a pilot study to identify the best long-term solution to enhance treatment at Sweeney to reduce PFAS. To date, CFPUA and its ratepayers have borne about $8 million in costs related to Chemours’ and DuPont’s decades of discharges. CFPUA believes Chemours and DuPont should bear these and other costs related to the damages they caused while running profitable businesses at the Fayetteville Works.The utility has filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking to force the companies to take responsibility.

UNCW’s New Graduate Film Programs Now Accepting Applications Cape Fear Realtors Announces Interested applicants can apply through February 2020 study that support their research agendas and professional Municipal Election Endorsements
Wilmington, N.C. (October 3, 2019) – Two new filmrelated master’s programs at UNCW are now accepting applications, the university announced today. The M.A. in film studies and M.F.A. in filmmaking have opened enrollment until February 2020. The programs are designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge of film-related fields, building skills from cinematography and directing to research and publishing. The integrative curriculum will prepare graduates for careers in a wide range of fields including the film industry, media, education, research and publishing. “These are the only film degrees of their kind in the UNC System. There are really no other comparable programs,” said Mariana Johnson, film studies chair and associate professor. UNCW’s M.F.A. in filmmaking is an immersive threeyear terminal degree program that prepares students to be complete filmmakers. The curriculum includes workshopstyle courses in cinematography, screenwriting, editing, sound design, producing and directing. The M.A. in film studies is a two-year program, in which students work closely with faculty to develop individualized courses of
goals, culminating in master's theses. The two programs have been designed to work in conjunction to maximize learning and career opportunities. The curriculum will offer select critical studies courses and an applied learning experience, all of which will be available to both M.A. and M.F.A. students in the department. Fostering collaborative campus partnerships and enhanced applied learning opportunities are key objectives of the university’s Strategic Plan. “People who review television, movies or social media or who work in journalism and publishing, will often be doing that very work with visual media,” said Johnson. “Part of the mission of our integrated programs is that these things cross-fertilize. Our MA students will get expertise in film history, theory and aesthetics, but they can also use some of the more practical applied learning skills to make the content they create more relevant, visual and compelling.” Those interested in more information or who wish to apply should visit the Film Studies Graduate Programs’ website.
After a series of interviews, the Cape Fear Realtors Candidate Selection Task Force (CSTF) chose to endorse the following candidates in the 2019 municipal contests: • For Wilmington Mayor: Bill Saffo • For Wilmington City Council: Paul Lawler, Margaret Haynes, Neil Anderson • For Wrightsville Beach Mayor: Darryl Mills • For Wrightsville Beach Board of Alderman: Zeke Partin, Jeff DeGroote • For Carolina Beach Mayor: LeAnn Pierce • For Carolina Beach Council: Lynn Barbee, Steve Shuttleworth • For Kure Beach Mayor: Craig Bloszinsky • For Kure Beach Commission: Joseph Whitley, David Heglar • For Town of Burgaw Commission: Bill George, Red Robbins, Vernon Harrell Realtors live and work in every neighborhood in our community. As an advocacy organization of over 2,800 Realtors, CFR supports candidates for office that demonstrate an understanding of, and willingness to promote, both private property rights and smart economic growth. Realtors Luke Waddell, who chairs the 2019 CSTF, stressed the importance of being deliberate in their selection of candidates. “All politics is local, and nothing that impacts the citizen more immediately than the decisions of local town and city councils. We wanted to be as thorough as possible in our candidate selection process because our voice not only represents Realtors but also the homeowner clients and customers that we represent daily.”

The flu (influenza) is a contagious respiratory virus that can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Those at risk for serious flu complications include older people, young children and people with certain health conditions or a compromised immune system. Getting vaccinated helps prevent getting the flu and protects others from getting the flu. How to Participate: Anyone in the community can get a free flu vaccine and participate in this exercise by coming to the parking lot next to the Schwartz Center on Saturday, October 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or until the vaccine runs out. Attendees should wear short sleeved shirts, or be able to roll up long sleeves to their shoulder. There will be a walkup and a drive-through option to receive a flu shot: Walk-up option: To walk-up, participants should park nearby and visit the tent that will be located at the corner of 2nd and Brunswick Streets to receive their vaccine. Drive-through option: Participants will be directed to enter from Hanover Street, and will need to follow the directions of staff and volunteers carefully. The layout and traffic flow Continued from Page 1
for the event can be viewed here. Cars will be greeted and directed to a lane depending on the number of people in the vehicle. Multiple people per vehicle is encouraged. It will not be necessary to get out of the car to receive the flu vaccine. The flu vaccination event and exercise is a result of preparedness planning that local public health is charged with providing for the community, and made possible through partnership with International Medical Corps and New Hanover Regional Medical Center, who coordinated the donation of 1,000 vaccinations. The planning team has met over a six-month period to prepare the Point of Dispensing Plan exercise and includes New Hanover County Public Health, New Hanover County Emergency Management, New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, International Medical Corps, New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Cape Fear Community College, North Carolina Preparedness and Response and Southeastern NC Healthcare Preparedness Region.
