Opinion


Positive leadership, positive results

Our growing impression of the leadership of the City of Crestview is a rare one. We see the City working for the benefit of city residents in ways that most leaders do not.

We saw the City lower the millage rate on property taxes this year – that must be historic. They were looking for a way to give the residents a little relief in a time where inflation and gas prices have been taking a toll on everyone.

Crestview deserves the best of us

When Sandpaper Publishing bought the Crestview News Bulletin in January, our team was filled with excitement. We have published Navarre Press for 23 years and we knew the product we could bring to the Crestview community.

Until recently, except for fan-favorite sportswriter, Randy Dickson, we were publishing Crestview News Bulletin with the same staff from Navarre Press. We knew that would be temporary as we searched for the perfect staff members for Crestview.

Now is a Good Time for Ayn Rand’s “Money Speech”

As America regulates and vilifies capitalism while also using the brute force of government against opponents, Dole and Chiquita are looking to make America their top supplier.

The FBI used a “no-knock” warrant on a likely presidential candidate. The other form of warrant is one where one FBI agent knocks on your front door while the other one goes around back and shouts, “Come on in!”

“Tis the Season,” please drive carefully…

“Tis the season!” That’s right, hard to believe and I think it started early this year. The does (the mamma deer) are dropping their young!

Why last week a friend of mine saw a large doe cross the road at Price Plantation on Buck Ward Road, luckily, he was going slow and stopped in time to see the tiny wobbly legged spotted fawn trying to follow its mamma.

I had the opportunity to sit down with our U.S. House Representative, Matt Gaetz, at his district office in Pensacola last week. He was preparing for a hearing with Alejandro Mayorkas last Thursday and took an hour out of his day to chat about his district that covers all the areas where we have news organizations.

Randy’s Report

It seems as though each region of the country has its own weather obstacles to contend with when it comes to school closings and sport cancellations.

Some of the policies associated with the weather issues make sense, but others leave me scratching my head.
