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. You will also vote on whether or not you want Holley Navarre Fire District to be able to levy ad valorem taxes instead of the non-ad valorem fee you are currently paying.
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.
We will be experiencing a little louder “Sound of Freedom” this coming Monday – through Thursday, Sept. 12 – 15, when the 58th Fighter Squadron of Eglin conducts night flying operations in the area when F-35 fighter aircraft will conduct missions between 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Night flying is required for 58th FS training operations and we are glad they are receiving the training they need.
We are excited for the fun of the Beaches to Woodlands tour to begin as they celebrate their 19th anniversary of connecting north and south Santa Rosa County with events.
We hope you will take part in the fun and venture up to the north end of the county for some adventure there as well. There is an outline of events with dates in this issue.
