Despite awareness of the risks of the ocean, especially the surf at Cape Spear during tropical storms such as Leslie, some people still choose to ignore the warning signs and fencing, and stand on the edge.

The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.

Wednesday’s print edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion, to indepth sports, to our expanded A&E section.

Inside Wednesday’s print edition:

• On page A3, a new judge is sworn in.

• On page A4, the court injunction that stopped a wildcat strike from blocking access to the Long Harbour nickel processing plant construction site has been lifted — more than two months after the job action it was supposed to guard against ended.

• On page A5, the latest on infrastructure needs in St. John’s.

• Page A10, accessibility bylaws to include signage.

• In the business section, the latest on the strike at St. John’s International Airport.
