Luke McCoy has new conspiracy

Luke McCoy has new conspiracy

Over the weekend the daily newspaper weighed in on global warming ( Global warming issue hits home ). Our favorite curmudgeon weighed in on the issue, too. Of course, being the deep thinker, well-researched commentator and educated scientist that McCoy is, the WCOA radio personality believes it's [...]

PNJ watch – four days and counting

PNJ watch – four days and counting

The PNJ has still not reported anything about Escambia County firefighters…which was covered by every other news outlet in the area - except WCOA (surprise?). Why isn't this story getting at least the same coverage as Front Porch and Thelma Manley? Front Porch has limited impact on most of [...]

More blood shed

More blood shed

What started as war to find weapons of mass destruction, topple a dictator and end the war on terrorism as descended into in religious civil war between Sunni and Shiites. Our soldiers have become referees - under staffed, under supplied and under-lead by their civilian, political leaders. The [...]

Three days – no news

The PNJ has still not reported anything about Escambia County fire protection...which goes to prove you can't depend on the daily newspaper for all your local news. Daily does have great stories on global warming, future of the beach and an Easter egg hunt.

Why care about VFD

Why care about VFD

The blog has taken off on the Escambia County fire protection issue. Some regular blog readers have emailed me on why have I gotten so passionate on the issue. The bottomline is we need an open discussion on the fire protection outside the Pensacola city limits. There are problems that the [...]

WEAR TV follows up on VFD

...still no news coverage from PNJ. Friday's follow-up: Firefighter Audit Follow-up An Escambia Volunteer Fire Chief says he wants taxpayers to know what it would cost them to have a fully paid department. It's an update to a story we broke here on Channel Three News [...]

More on VFD

From Duwayne Escobedo: Myrtle Grove Volunteer Firefighters have e-mailed the Independent News Florida FireFighter 1 Certifications for Donald Snock and Trenton Williams that they obtained in November 2006. Williams, a captain, and Snock, a firefighter, were singled out in a report by the [...]

Why no quotes from full-time firefighters?

Why no quotes from full-time firefighters?

You will not see any professional, full-time, paid firefighters quoted on WEAR or in the PNJ (if they ever write the story). A gag order has been placed on these county employees by the administration. Instead, expect the volunteers and their supporters to flood the media with their versions of the [...]

VFD – ineffective for residential, commercial areas

VFD – ineffective for residential, commercial areas

Escambia County needs to face the realization that volunteer fire departments don't work in heavily residential and commercial areas. The idea of neighborhood volunteers who work within minutes of a fire station being able to make fire calls within 5-10 minutes of the alarm not longer works. It's [...]

Rex coming back?

Rex coming back?

Had some interesting conversations at Martini Night. My sources told me that there are plans to reopen the Rex Theater as a music venue for both live shows and for concert broadcasts. Could be done within the year. Also, the heirs to PENKO - who owns the buildings at the corners of Palafox and [...]
