Letter: Let’s celebrate

The evil Trump has been sent home because his policies were directed at improving our country. This is evil because he should have focused on serving the establishment.

His policies bought us the evil of full employment, better pay, self-respect through work, energy independence, secure borders, fair trade policies, defense of the Bill of Rights.

Ever wonder what Navarre was like five years ago, or even 10 or 20?

Now you won’t have to wonder. Linda Murchison, who has collected and studied local history for decades, will be telling readers each week what the top stories were in the Navarre Press over the last 20 years.

Editorial: We must fight to protect public’s right to know

For democracy to function, citizens must have the right to know what their elected officials are doing and saying. The right to full and public notice of when elected officials are discussing or making decisions must be ensured.

As a nonpartisan government watchdog and taxpayer-research institute that focuses on promoting government accountability and transparency, Florida TaxWatch supports the use of public notices in local newspapers of record by government entities to notify all of their citizens of meetings and votes.

Letter: Navarre misses out on $16.5 million

As Navarre residents we care deeply about how our tax money is spent. We are highly suspicious of government programs, promises and politicians.

We are quick to investigate any potential misuse and we pride ourselves on accountability.

Take a moment and focus on your breathing

Every day several times a day, the Apple watch my kids got me last year sends me an annoying reminder.
Breathe, it tells me. Just breathe.

My immediate impulse is to argue with this piece of technology.

Editorial: Traffic congestion tough road to hoe

Santa Rosa County businesses and officials want tourists to come. They are and in solid numbers if recent bed tax revenues are the indicator.

When the tourists come, they arrive in cars. The cars cause more congestion on our always crowded roads.
