Brian Out Loud

It was some point in early August of 2019 when I first took notice of Austin Reed on the football field.

He was slinging the ball around in a scrimmage on one of those hot and humid evenings we are all too familiar with here late in the summer here in Northwest Florida, looking like a quarterback capable of doing big things for a UWF football program with high hopes.

For God’s Sake: God offers new life in Christ

Do you remember your first car? Mine was a 1965 Dodge Polaris that had done duty as our family vehicle for years.

After my dad purchased a “new” used car, he said I could have the Dodge if I paid the insurance.

Out and About

We were able to get into Aldi two days before it opened and have a tour.

We also did a live video. By the time you are reading this, hopefully you have discovered that we also have Aldi’s inserts. This week there is a $5 off coupon when you spend $30.

Who cares about public notices? You should

One of the great things about living in the U.S. is that our city and county governments are required to keep their citizens informed about their actions.

One of the ways they do this is through public notices — the informational notices that have been deemed to be of importance to local constituents.

I owe Mike Krzyzewski a thank you in writing.

And seeing that his final season as the head coach of the Duke Blue Devils is winding down, it’s fitting that I publicly issue that thank you now rather than later.

Let’s Celebrate!!!

Citizens are celebrating the NEW Green Deal and globalist WOKE businesses.

We are truly happy to have a lower standard of living and eating lower quality food because of increased cost.

The adaptation of a concert series

In 2008, the Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce began hosting a free concert series called “Concerts in the Park.”

Navarre Park would fill with people from neighboring communities, visitors and locals alike.

If you’re reading this, you’re breathing

I just returned from a morning walk in the fog. While I hate driving in fog, walking in it is another experience.

The world takes on a soft haze, its edges rounded off and colors dimmed. Sidewalks get shorter. It’s like peering at life through a gauzy curtain.

For God’s Sake: We need to learn what causes the gospel to “ignite”

The intermittent cold snaps we’ve been experiencing on the Florida panhandle signal that it is once again that time of year when I prove my ineptitude at lighting a fire in a fireplace.
