Pensacola Firefighters

Letter to Pensacola City Manager Tom Bonfield Do you know how important your safety is? We ask that in jest, of course, as the City has decided to put off the hiring of a fire chief until the new parks and recreation Director is on board. Interesting. We now know where the hearts and minds [...]

What’s the next big issue?

We will have the House District 3 race in front of us for two more weeks or so, but what is the next big issue? Property tax caps - local governments are worried about the impact of a cap on property tax rates and how it will impact services. This is more a fight between county [...]

Don't why I'm posting this but it just came across the wire: A lawyer for former model and reality TV star Anna Nicole Smith says she has died after being found unresponsive in a Florida hotel room. READ MORE

Who was M.J. Menge?

When PJC dedicated its bell tower in 1999, Federal Judge Lacey Collier gave this speech: The Spirit of Pensacola (M.J. Menge Bell Tower Dedication) Come with me to a time some years into the future. We are standing right over there on a bright sun-shiny day, just as today. And we see a young [...]

Hawkshaw – bigger names under consideration

Our music budget is only $60,000 so understand our selection is limited or dependent on friendships and local ties. No commitments on these performers.

PNJ Dogan misses the point

The daily newspaper's local columnist Reginald Dogan analyzed the House District 3 Democratic primary this way: Wyche's loss simply validates my theory that a black Democrat can't win in Northwest Florida. Wyche lost because the voters won't vote for a five-time loser. His loss wasn't because of [...]

House District 3 strategies

Ford GOP Game Plan Solidify your base - make sure Pensacola Christian College and Gulf Breeze vote. Reach out to Scarborough, Hart and Banjanin. Don't expect reconciliation with Scarborough camp, but others may announce endorsements of Ford. Who else will GOP vote for? But be carefull the [...]

Menge funeral

Menge funeral

Just got back from the funeral for M.J. Menge at Trinity Presb. Church. Packed house. Very, very moving celebration of M.J.'s life. One of the few funerals where the pastor actually got choked up. Judge Lacey Collier spoke on M.J. and his legal career. Banker Tommy Tait spoke on M.J.'s civic [...]

TomKat Factor

TomKat Factor

Did Tom Banjanin hurt the George Scaborough campaign? I believe it splintered the Escambia County vote further. Brother Joe always did well with the older voters - many of whom were supporting Banjanin. For them, Scarborough name was just as recognizable. However, it's unknown whether George [...]
