Amelia Island “Newspaper”
Reports Massive Oil Discovery
Is Amelia Island soon to become a boomtown of explosive growth due to massive oil deposits in its offshore waters? Will the Fernandina Beach Marina become a mud wrestling venue? Did a Russian foreign exchange student meddle in a local high school’s student council election?
These are just three of the stories in the latest edition of the Amelia Island News Wrecker, a satirical tabloid newspaper that is being distributed this week.
The free 24-page annual tabloid News Wrecker is available in area pubs, restaurants, businesses, shops and other establishments says editor and publisher Dave Scott, a Fernandina Beach resident who also writes a weekly www.davescottblog.com. An online version of the News Wrecker will be available mid May. This is the fourth year the paper has been published.
The tag line for the publication is “Amelia Island’s sacred cows make the best burgers” and according to Scott: “Its purpose is to generate laughs without resorting to obscenities and vulgarity. “The only thing I can be accused of is bad taste, ” he says.
“The News Wrecker pokes harmless fun at Nassau County’s small but vocal liberal and far right wing populations, local governing bodies, local news gathering organizations, and other area sacred cows,” explains Scott.
