Congratulations to the class of 2024

There are moments in your life where you know you’re crossing a significant milestone off of life’s journey.

Graduating high school is definitely one of those moments.

Don’t sleep on severe weather

Some of you probably woke up last Friday, very surprised to learn that a tornado came right through Santa Rosa County and into Okaloosa County.

Many were left to pick up trees from their homes, out of roadways and to repair property damage following the EF-2 twister. The National Weather Service confirmed the tornado through its preliminary survey, estimating its peak winds at 115 miles per hour.

The presidential election is important, but local elections should be where you focus your attention

The year 2024 is a big election year, not only nationally, but also in Santa Rosa County.

We’re guessing everyone is aware of that, unless you sleep under a rock or somehow drive around town with your eyes closed. At this point, we’re not sure you could throw a rock on most major thoroughfares in Santa Rosa County and not hit an election sign.

Gulf Breeze roads and other utility works

What in the world is happening with HWY 98 reconstruction. These people dig out everything created chaos and left. There is almost no progress in last two years. This is unbelievable sloppiness and chaos. Completely unprofessional and unacceptable. I lost three windshields due to stones on HWY98. Whoever is in charge should bring company from China to finish job in two weeks.

We are only a few days away from Navarre High School Class of 2024’s graduation, a milestone in every teen’s life. It’s the first step toward adulting. Some will go to college, some will take on a trade, some will become executives. Some will stay home.

I’m not complaining that the spring football game between Navarre and Pace was postponed a couple of weeks ago.
I was driving back from Fort Myers after covering a state baseball championship game the night before.

For God’s Sake: imagine that

I have a vivid imagination and have had it all my life. It is so vivid that I imagine myself to be six feet tall with brown wavy hair and sporting washboard abs. Others see a man whose hair has turned white, some of it turned loose, and who is sporting washtub abs. They just lack imagination!
