Promises: kept or broken?

The Community Maritime Park Associates board agreed to a Covenant with the Community which promised the park would be the most inclusive project in the city’s history. That Covenant has been supplanted by the Equal Business Opportunity agreement with the CMPA board and the developer. Is the [...]

The Gang who couldn’t tell time

The Gang who couldn’t tell time

Jamie Page attended yesterday's press conference held by the Donovan/Nobles gang where they essentially cried that they shouldn't be penalized for not knowing how to tell time. His tale of their journey to find someone, anyone, to accept their petition signatures is hilarious. The motley crew of [...]

Maritime Film tells story of the park

Maritime Film tells story of the park

With the help of Barnes West, we produced a film on the Vince Whibbs, Sr. Community Maritime Park---how it started, who worked on it, why it's named for Vince Whibbs, Sr., etc. It seems like every six months we have to fend off another revision of history and the facts about this public-private [...]

What Charlie Fairchild said about Maritime Park in 2005

What Charlie Fairchild said about Maritime Park in 2005

The year was 2005. Pensacola had finished a series of town hall meetings on a proposed community maritime park. Charlie Fairchild, C.C. Elebash and Marty Donovan were working behind the scenes to defeat the project. I actually interviewed Fairchild in July 2005 about the project ("Save Our City," [...]

If Marty and Jack didn’t like the stadium…

The blog has grown beyond Northwest Florida. We are approaching a million page views a month.

Charles Fairchild, secret partner with Donovan & Nobles

I acquired these emails from Save Our City & No Boss Mayor co-founder Charlie Fairchild to an out-of-town web designer. Looks like Charlie, Marty and Jack have been scheming hard while the rest of us have been fighting for this community. So sad---those guys can't stand being out of the limelight. [...]

CMP: Stop the pettiness and bullying

Pensacola had a head start over the rest of North America 451 years ago. When DeLuna founded Pensacola, there was no New York, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans or Orlando...just Pensacola. When the first settlement failed, it took another 135 years for Spain to comeback to Northwest Florida. By then, [...]
