Last week, nearly every media outlet in the region met at the Santa Rosa County Emergency Operations Center to get prepared for the upcoming hurricane season. And if you haven’t seen the forecast for hurricane season in 2024, just know it ranges from bad to really bad. (Let’s hope forecasters are wrong this year.)
Nobody wants to deal with construction.

Most of us will go an alternate route if we can avoid a construction zone, just so that we don’t get held up.

You think you’ve seen the world until you’ve seen it as a parent.

Every day adventures are suddenly dangerous.

I love the City of Crestview; the closeness of our citizens, the strength of our faith community, and the appreciation we have for all the military services.  Having said that, there is one area that I believe we could improve upon and that is demonstrating how much we love our country because it is the greatest one in the world.

I’m learning new traditions and entitlements as my children get older, and I find myself having conversations with them that weren’t even a topic when I was their age. My daughter’s husbands have brought up evaluating jobs on how long they will have off for paternity leave when they start have babies or continue to do so. Really? I was lucky my husband was in this country when I had babies.

For those of us of a certain age, OK, Baby Boomers, certain athletes marked our childhood.
Football had Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, Bart Starr, Dick Butkus and Roger Staubach. Baseball was Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Whitey Ford and Sandy Koufax.

My wife has a gift for making up rhymes. She will observe something interesting or unusual and a moment later some clever verse will spill from her lips, usually to an improvised tune. I think to myself, we should be writing these down, but the moment passes, and her verse is lost.
