Claire Chaffin and Jessie Ruple (Cover) are ready to rock the court as “Team Floyd’s” (Shrimp House) at Emerald Coast Volleyball Week’s Spring tournament now through April 28 at The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. The Tennessee locals have drifted south each Spring and Fall for the five-day tournament for almost a decade.

Seagrove Beach resident Nikki Hedrick (Various Places Around the Magazine) is a photographer and longtime Beachcomber contributor. She is the co-owner of 850 Music and Entertainment, and wears a few other hats, too. Nikki is currently up to her ears in beach wedding season.

Bill Herrin (“You Could Judge a Book by Its Cover, But…”) has worked with newspapers, ad agencies, and companies of all sizes as a graphic designer, art director, creative director, copywriter, illustrator, artist and freelance cartoonist. He has lived on the Emerald Coast for two years, and finds the area to be a perfect fit for him and his wife. Bill also plays drums in a local cover band (Catalyst) that performs all over Beachcomberland.

Clay Jones (Cartoons) syndicates his cartoons daily to publications across the country. Clay was born in Fort Hood, Texas, and was raised in Louisiana, Illinois, California and Georgia. He currently lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia. His cartoons have recently been featured on CNN, and he was a finalist for the 2019 Herblock Prize.
