Sometimes we focus on what we don’t have, or situations we aren’t in, and we lose sight of what we do have and where we are. I know I have a lot to be thankful for – at all times – even when I’m wrapped up in the day-to-day busy-ness of life.

People have called me and stopped me at meetings to ask me what I thought about the Eddington upset over Piech. Everyone is saying that they did not see how that could have happened. Well, that is because they are informed voters.

A big thank you to Bob and Carol Boston for remembering to bring their Navarre Press with them to Navarre, Ohio.

We used to have a lot more entries for “On the Road” with Navarre Press and we use to promote it more. If and when you go to somewhere notable, please bring your Navarre Press and we will put the picture in the paper.

I’m on the road a lot between the Milton, Crestview and Navarre offices and I love listening to Podcasts.

I should be able write off my car as a rolling university, but I’m sure the IRS wouldn’t go for that. I recently listened to Chris Wark of ChrisBeatsCancer.com on a podcast that caught my attention because I thought it was about Breast Cancer awareness month.

If you haven’t registered to vote in the November election, it’s too late.

The registration closed Tuesday, Oct. 11. Locally this election will decide your District 2 commissioner and District 4 commissioner for Santa Rosa County.

Our reporter and team member, Ken Garner contributed the following one of our other newspapers, and I’m sharing it this week in my column.

This week (Oct. 2-8) is National Newspaper Week and, while it’s relatively anonymous as far as “holidays” go, it is a great time to consider just how important local newspapers are to communities across our nation and the world.

Cooler temperatures are here and that means the bears are on the move. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, (FWC) our black bears are joining their northern cousins in fattening up for the winter.

Black bears eat up to 20,000 calories a day in the fall. That means, they will be on the move and searching for good food “grub” even more than usual.
