YOLO Board’s Ingo Rademacher, Jeff Archer & EJ Johnson

YOLO Board Elite Team Rider Ingo Rademacher can be seen back on ABC’s General Hospital reprising his popular role of Jasper “Jax” Jacks for a five-week cameo. Rademacher just wrapped up a busy summer season traveling the West Coast competing in elite standup paddleboard races, including the Molokai 2 Oahu World Championship, a 32-mile race across the treacherous Ka’iwi Channel between the Hawaiian Islands of Molokai and Oahu.

“I’ve had an amazing year both professionally and personally,” said Rademacher, who welcomed his second child in May. “Being able to represent YOLO out on the water and in races has been a great experience, and I’m excited to return to the General Hospital set to see what’s in store for Jax and reconnect with my friends and fans.”

The Walton County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) reports the following:

–The Walton County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) continues to remind the public Walton County beaches (water, sand and accesses) remain closed for today, Wednesday, August 29, 2012. Debris, along with the rough surf conditions, has made the beach areas unsafe. The integrity of beach access structures will remain in question until they have been inspected. Yellow tape has been placed at certain points on accesses for the safety of the public. Please do not cross these areas and put your safety, as well as those of public safety officers, in danger. Damage assessment teams will continue to monitor the beaches throughout the day and upon a reassessment of conditions, a decision will be made tomorrow morning whether to re-open beach areas.

–Beach flag conditions can be monitored at www.swfd.org and on South Walton Fire Department’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/southwaltonfire.
