Out and About

Usually, January is a slow time for news but this year has certainly proved to be unusual.

Everyone’s keeping a close eye on Pensacola Bay Bridge reconstruction. If repairs continue on schedule, we’re only about two months away from returning to normalcy.

For God’s Sake: Have confidence in your advocate in heaven

In seminary, future preachers are encouraged to collect potential sermon illustrations – emotion-packed, real-life stories, a funny joke or a personal life experience.

God must have realized that I would need extra help in this because he gave us Brewster.

Reclassification is expected to take place for high school sports at some point in February.

I hope the Florida High School Athletic Association makes good decisions when it comes to the reclassifying process.

LETTER: Looking at dark winter, dark future

President Joe is right to say we are going to have a dark winter and we may also have a dark future. The new proposed COVID bill has as much to do with liberal states bail out as it does with relief due to the COVID virus.

Wendy Victora Rudman: Mitten up, cold weather sticking around

I’m not sure how I survived growing up in Illinois, why I thought it was fun to strap on shoes with blades on them and stumble across a frozen river.

I waited for the bus in sub-freezing temperatures and considered it normal to don layers of clothing so thick I couldn’t press my arms down to my sides. It took 10 minutes to get dressed to step out the front door and almost that long to take it all off again.

Letters: Who’s in Charge?

What’s goin’ on in Milton?  Who’s in charge?  We’ve got campaign contributors running the Board. Zoning Board votes being ignored.

Votes to approve overdevelopment while infrastructure needs go unaddressed.

Out and About

As you will read in this week’s edition, county officials started out the year with some fireworks.

The fallout from the firing of attorney Roy Andrews late last year continues to be a hot topic with some county officials, while others seem ready to move on.

Learn about the oaks common along Gulf Coast

A reputation for strength, durability and the ability to endure the harshest of condition is admirable and enviable.

Very few humans (and usually not the celluloid heroes of the silver screen) have the grit and determination to earn this standing or status in the course of their existence. A few notable personages in nautical history have risen to display the aforementioned character traits.

Guest Editorial: The answer to Santa Rosa’s water crisis

Over the past several months, Santa Rosa’s politics have been inflamed by heated debates concerning the county’s water supply.

The arguments largely concern local developers and their practice of digging sand. The practice leaves large holes or “borrow pits” that many experts say are hazardous to our underlying water sources.

Wendy Victora Rudman: County does good work with vaccines

In the four months since I’ve been editor of the Navarre Press, Santa Rosa County and I have been courting each other. As a 20-plus year resident of Okaloosa and an occasional visitor to Santa Rosa, we were more like good acquaintances than close friends.
