Anetta is a world changer! Her story inspires, energizes, and reassures me that you can build a thriving business even if you don’t have the capital, workers, or store front – instead you just need an idea. Starting out, she faced a lot of uncertainty, yet Anetta never lost the willpower to overcome adversity to create a full-filling, secure life. She worked multiple jobs while building her gig on the side. When Anetta came to the United States she came here with two bags – and not knowing English. Years of backbreaking work, this mother of two has created her own successful empire. Very impressive. Its women like Anetta who empower me – to blaze my own trail of financial self-reliance and turn my ideas into dreams!

Many firefighters who risked their lives during Hurricane Irma lost everything as they were helping others. A local rookie firefighter who has been on the force for about 8 months had six inches of water throughout her home. Dani McMillon told us many sentimental items rest on the curb, waiting to be thrown out after they were saturated by sewage and storm water. Her girls’ room, now bare as the carpet, their clothes and toys have all been disposed of. They have several large fans blowing at full force to dry out these now exposed walls. McMillon was with her firefighter crew during Irma responding to trauma alerts while her home was taking on water. This home has been in the family for generations, so many memories have happened within these walls, but this house doesn’t resemble a home anymore. This mother is getting through this emotional battle with the support of her JFRD family. Please take a moment and think about how YOU can help a family in need this weekend. Many people are suffering -- and we can ALL do something to help those around us!

💚TEAM BRONSON!!💚 The Nassau County community is rallying behind a Yulee boy and his running team that will participate in a Washington D.C. marathon. Bronson Roth loves being outside and he has brought together a Nassau County deputy and his family to participate in several local races. Bronson was born with a traumatic brain injury and his family was told he’d never walk or talk. The doctors were correct, but Bronson is known to many as a miracle boy.  He is wheelchair-bound and nonverbal, yet he’s inspiring thousands of people through his own story. Bronson’s father, Brent Roth, and Nassau County Deputy Bill Quick, are hitting the pavement with purpose as they train with Bronson for the upcoming 42nd Marine Corps Marathon that will be held in Washington, D.C. on October 22. Roth has completed many races with his son, but this upcoming run will be Brent Roth’s first marathon. For Quick, he’s always had a passion for running; he’s pushed Bronson in several 5Ks, half-marathons, full marathons and two 55K relay races. This race next month will be the most memorable race for Team Bronson!

Mayor milestones for a St. Augustine teenager who was in a coma for weeks. In February, I told you about Tyler Clevinger, he suffered a serious head injury in a skateboarding accident. Against all odds – this local teen is proving doctors wrong, showing everyone, he’s a fighter. A trick at a skate park almost cost him his life; Tyler cracked his head open in a fall, he spent weeks in the ICU on ventilators. Now, Tyler is using his pain to inspire others to protect themselves. He wasn’t wearing his helmet during the time of the accident. His goal is to ensure every skateboarder thinks about safety first.

Many first responders who were helping people during Hurricane Irma also received the call about their homes being destroyed. Several JFRD firefighters had damage caused by wind, storm surge, and/or flooding. Andrew Sneed tells me flood waters filled his house; some areas he had standing water of about 6 feet. For days, he’s been cleaning up with the aid of his firefighter and church family who ripped this home down to the frame. His personal items rest on the curb, waiting to be thrown out. Sneed says his family is irreplaceable and some cherished items that have sentimental value – but everything else is just stuff. He reminded everyone that stuff is something you *CAN replace. Stuff doesn’t bring you happiness – and it can’t bring you joy. Family and relationships with people fills your heart with excitement, love, and positivity. He says his home can be fixed, it’ll just take a little elbow grease and hard work. Through this tragedy, Sneed explains a community has united together to help one another.

Smart girls read!  I always read in between meetings, appointments, and carry a book everywhere I go. This book by @nelygalan called “Self Made” touched me profoundly and came at the perfect time. I’m working on several ‘passion projects’ – that fit my calling and my purpose in life. To do these items, I’m taking risks, going against the norm, and outside my comfort zone. Through it all, I know it’s the right direction – because my heart feels lighter and happier. I feel more confident each time I achieve another little success. Galan’s words showed me if I believe something is important enough, even if the odds are against me, I should still do it! And that’s what I’m doing. She shows women why its important to roll up their sleeves and work hard at building their own empire – and dream life. Her words are empowering and she gives you the insight needed to become self-reliant, and rich in every way of your life. She reminds me why the biggest risk is not taking any risk… and how the world is always changing and you can either be on the outside looking in – or be in the middle a part of the change. This book is energizing, captivating, and resourceful. Galan’s book should be a must read for EVERY woman! We all need to lean in and get the backbone needed to build the life we dream of.

Rob Nesbitt and John Blunda are from my sister-station in Maine who came to Jacksonville to provide coverage on Hurricane Irma. Storytelling is both an art and a science. These men understand what it takes to tell an exceptional story. Hands down! They recognize the importance behind natural sound, lighting, and capturing moments on camera. Together, these two are unstoppable; they told deserving stories that touched the lives of many people in the River City. There’s nothing like catching up with these two fine men.

The only way to really know what it’s like to live through a tree crashing down on your home is to hear from survivors. Officials still don't know how big Irma's impact is on the Sunshine State. Water damage, mold and contamination could render many homes to be unlivable. For some, they lost everything within a matter of minutes. Absolutely gut-wrenching.

The man who lives here described how his home was ripped a part by hurricane winds as his family sheltered inside. They lost everything in Hurricane Irma. This mega-storm flattened their home by pushing over an oak tree that split their house in half. He was emotional – and watching a man who has worked hard his entire life to provide for his family made my heart ache. I believe we can do something to help our neighbors – we need more than prayers – we need people to take action! MOVE! DO SOMETHING! Whether that’s rolling up your sleeves to clear out debris, volunteering with a non-profit, or financially donate. We can all do something! Even if it’s a small gesture. This poor man needed a break – his family needed some relief – I couldn’t help them load up their truck because I was on the job. I had to get my responsibilities done for the day, however, I wanted to offer him something, so I gave him the money I had in my wallet to buy dinner. We sometimes get so caught up in the moment we forget that these are people with real stories. Kindness and compassion go a long way to help a broken heart. Yesterday, I was blessed with @sjsopio deputies who provided my photographer and I with cold water. I thought I won the lottery!! Let’s all do our part to spread kindness; no matter how big or small we can all make a difference. We are FLORIDA STRONG!

Often many of you ask me why I got into this profession. This is my reason... Everyone in life has a personal story; whether it is one of excitement, desperation, or hurt, these are elements that could impact and change the lives of people. I believe that storytellers are the bloodlines that bring awareness to issues, allows people to start conversations, and make informed decisions that could impact their family, communities, and nation.

People lost everything. Their homes –> gone. Their cars –> destroyed. Personal items –> washed away. Heartbreaking images from an area that’s absolutely stunning! We had our boots on the ground today as we assessed the damage in Vilano Beach caused by Hurricane Irma. In these times of tragedy, we need to come together and persevere to find strength. We need to reach out to our neighbor and offer a hand. Give more from our wallet to those who have it worse off than us. I believe we also need to show more kindness to those in our community. You don’t know everybody’s story. The person next to you at the grocery story may have lost everything – or they may have lost a portion of their roof.

In Vilano Beach, several homes are either in the water or unlivable. This area was hit hard last year by Hurricane Matthew – and again destroyed by Hurricane Irma. Some homeowners lost everything. Now, it’s all being pulled into the ocean. I walked up and down the shores of Vilano Beach and each house has foundation issues, missing walls, or flooding. Please take a moment and pray for the families impacted by this horrific storm.

Downtown Jacksonville had at least 2 feet of flooding in some areas. For hours, we brought you live coverage on @actionnewsjax from the Jacksonville Landing, which is near the @suntrustbanking and @wellsfargo building. As a Floridian, I know out

We’ve seen so much destruction – Overwhelming. Crushing. Heartbreaking. Irma left a trail of devastation in Florida, flooding downtown Jacksonville, San Marco, and St. Augustine, uprooting trees in neighborhoods and some families lost their entire livelihood by one storm. Standing water is significant in some areas – Jacksonville sees record-setting flooding in wake of Hurricane Irma. The River City has received national attention by @cbsnews for the devastation that has crippled portions of our beloved city. @actionnewsjax

Alone we work, together we win, alone we struggle together we succeed. I want you to meet the man behind the camera – Steve Berrios – who made it possible for me to describe what we were seeing yesterday during Hurricane Irma. Steve’s grit, tenacity, hard work, and grind combined with his
compassion, sincere thoughts, and positive outlook made yesterday’s coverage go smoothly. We were up against a lot of challenges, however, together we found ways to break barriers to ensure we brought you live coverage that was relevant, updated, and informative. We cannot accomplish all that we need to do without working together. I’m fortunate to have spent 14 hours with a wonderful coworker who is a talented photographer as we worked together to tell the real stories – surrounding real people impacted by Irma. Forever thankful. Forever blessed. @actionnewsjax

Alone we work, together we win, alone we struggle together we succeed. I want you to meet the man behind the camera – Steve Berrios – who made it possible for me to describe what we were seeing yesterday during Hurricane Irma. Steve’s grit, tenacity, hard work, and grind combined with his
compassion, sincere thoughts, and positive outlook made yesterday’s coverage go smoothly.

Jacksonville is seeing a historic level of flooding. On JSO’s Facebook page, it says those who need help evacuating to "put a white flag in front of your house. A t-shirt, anything white." Rescue teams have already been deployed. Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry gave a briefing where he stressed the importance of residents being deliberate in their actions and told those needing help evacuating home to call 904-630-CITY -- or put a white flag outside of their homes. #hurricaneirma #irma #hurricane #flooding #weather #downtown #jacksonville #FloridaStrong #river #wind #rain #stormsurge #rescue #white #911 #emergency

WE NEED PRAYERS: Overwhelming. Crushing. Just terrible images.... but it's suspected to get worse before it gets better. Flooded areas of #Jacksonville are bracing for high tide after Irma brought up to five feet of storm surge. Areas of Jacksonville including San Marco, Riverside and downtown are already flooded ahead of high tide. #Downtown #Jacksonville #florida #hurricane #irma #hurricaneIrma #weather #storm #wind #rain #update #prayers #floridastrong #historic #flooding

#Irma is moving more north/northeast vs northwest which will put the eye closer to #Jacksonville. @actionnewsjax will help you get through it - we have a team of certified meteorologist who are on the air 24/7 giving you updates and we have live reports from the field. #hurricane #irma #wind #rain #storm #hurricaneIrma #crazy #florida #jacksonville

The Florida Department of Transportation works closely with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and the Florida Highway Patrol to monitor wind conditions at area bridges. ALL BEACH BRIDGES will come offline at the same time when sustained wind speeds reach  40mph. ALL DOWNTOWN BRIDGES will be individually assessed. @actionnewsjax WILL ALERT you on air, online, and on our mobile app WHEN THAT HAPPENS. #bridges #jacksonville #weather #hurricane #hurricaneIram #storm #wind #rain #stormsurge #florida

JACKSONVILLE UPDATE: Bands of heavy rain containing strong gusty winds at times. High 78F. Winds ENE at 40 to 60 mph. Tonight we can expect hurricane conditions - like whistling winds, heavy rain, and storm surges. #jacksonville #florida #hurricane #hurricaneirma #weather #storm #rain #wind #staysafe

Hurricane Irma battered northern Cuba and is now on its way to Florida, where it's expected to hammer the state with whistling winds, heavy rain, and surging waves. This is the latest track and you can see this hurricane has been downgraded to a Category 4 storm. Let’s hope it continues to do so.

With one eye on Texas and another on the Atlantic as Hurricane Irma gets closer many local American Red Cross volunteers are gearing up for what could happen in Florida. They’re asking for everyone to “Be RedCross Ready.” Preparation is the best protection against the dangers of a hurricane. Everyone needs to be prepared for the unexpected. Your friends and family may not be together when disaster strikes. How will you find each other? You may have to evacuate or be confined to your home. What will you do if water, gas, electricity or phone services are shut off? Also, think about after an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.

You can never properly predict the future, yet you can prepare for the unknown. My goal is to take a step back, take a deep breath, and actually look at something with a different perspective. It's time to listen to my heart - and not what I think I should do because it's more reasonable.

Two manatees are now calling the @jacksonvillezoo home! America’s newest Manatee Critical Care Center received two young sea cows from @seaworldorlando. Both manatees require a little more time in human care before Florida Fish & Wildlife deems them ready for release. Cassie and Buckeye, orphaned in 2015 of August and September have been transferred to the Zoo’s Manatee Critical Care Center. Cassie weighed only 66 pounds at time of her rescue. Now, she’s a whopping 775 pounds! Buckeye was a mere 63 pounds when he was rescued, and now weighs 625 pounds. Fully grown, they can reach nearly a ton. These two manatees will remain at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ Manatee Critical Care Center, under the watchful eye of the Zoo’s Animal Health specialists. This center features two large tanks, one outfitted with a lift-floor for safer, more effective medical treatment. With the help provided by these specialist, they hope to have Cassie and Buckeye back in the wildlife by winter!! #manatees #Jacksonville #zoo #wildlife #seacows #SeaWorld #Orlando #Florida #care #orphaned #critical #care #specialist #animals #tanks #wild #winter #release #health

Be inquisitive. Ask questions! As a community member, it's absolutely vital that we ask questions and stay curious about topics that effect all of us. The more we know about a subject the more information, education we're equipped with. Human Trafficking is an important topic; it's something I'm always wanting to learn more in how I can help those survivors. We can all do something for the greater good, but we need to learn what's the root cause before getting started.
