Thank you to the people that reached out and said they would love to be a contributing writer for Navarre Press.
We will be integrating you into our flow very soon. As I tell new team members, we are going 80 miles an hour down the highway and we need you to merge with us…we can’t stop and pick you up. Well, we could, but then we would get run over.
I bought my first car in 2000, a brand-new blue Volkswagen Beetle. To this day, it’s still probably my favorite car that I’ve ever owned.
Back then, buying a car was an exciting experience. It was far and away the most expensive purchase I had made at that point in my life and remained that way for many years.
Last week, I was pondering the expression, “work out.” I wasn’t actually working out, just pondering the expression; pondering doesn’t make you sweat.
“Work out” is a curious expression. If someone says to you, “I worked out this morning,” you assume they exercised. People follow a “workout regimen,” a plan to get in shape.
Alabama freshman basketball star Brandon Miller is the biggest story in college basketball right now. And for all the wrong reasons.
Innocent in the eyes of the law, he’s drawn unwanted attention in the national spotlight because of his connection to a murder.
If you are reading Navarre Press, then you care about your community and you are an informed citizen. There may be many reasons you want to know what is happening in your community.
Perhaps you don’t want to be the last to know, or maybe you want to be the first to know.
I know Tony Carter has wanted to be a head high school football coach for the longest time. And now, the long-time Navarre football assistant will get that chance.
He’s the new head coach at Pine Forest, and when it comes to home run hires, the Eagles knocked it out of the park in landing Carter to run the show.
I occasionally have a troubling dream of the kind students have during a school year.
You know the kind, in your dream you arrive at school late and learn that you missed an important exam, or you were to give a presentation that day in class.
One of the things in life that is certain is change. Time brings about healing, distance from what it was we were fired up about and a willingness to look to a better future.
Not all change is good – and change for the sake of change is not good. But last week, Navarre got to experience change for the better. Two chambers – once a source of dividing our community – have come together as one. It was something that required the right people and the right time.
It was a great day for Navarre businesses on Friday, Feb. 17, at the Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce awards and installation breakfast.
After a year of hard work behind the scenes, the two chambers became one again.
There’s something that has bothered me about the way Gov. Ron DeSantis does business since he took office in early 2019 and it has nothing to do with his politics.
