Coun-cilman Jeff Snow motioned to approve the item, and Councilman Alan Lowery seconded.What this does „ its not going to approve an ordinance „ it will just put into motion a process in order to get the overlay district approved which would start with a public hearing,Ž City Manager Brian Watkins said.The public hearing will take place April 10. Two public hearings are required to pass an ordinance.If Mayor Meiss had been here tonight, I was going to read to him from the city charter that gives him the power, after you pass an ordinance „ which is basi-cally what youre attempting to do with this overlay „ to veto it,Ž Milton resident Mary Golden said.Golden was going to per-sonally ask the mayor to veto what he knows is not right, Dont take our way of living away from usBy Jennie McKeon315-4434 | @jenniemnwfdn jmckeon@nwfdailynews.comMILTON „ Transportation services provided bythe non-profit group Santa Rosa Vets to VA Clinics will bediscon-tinuedat the end of March.For the past five years Santa Rosa Vets to VA Clinics has provided transportation for Santa Rosa County veterans to and from the Joint Ambulatory Care Center and the Veterans Affairs Clinic in Pensacola. The program willend March 31 due to lack of funds. Shawn Ward, the transporta-tion planner for Santa Rosa County, said the program was eliminated after the countys Transpor-tation Disadvantaged Trust Fund grant was cut by $87,917. According to a press release from the county, the funding cut was due in part to the new distribution formula used by the state for Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund allocations. Direct costs to Santa Rosa Vets to VA Clin-ics averaged $2,000 to $4,000 monthly, so it could no longer afford to operate.It was a trickle-down effect,ŽWard said.The Vets to VA Clinics pro-vided free rides twice a week to some 90 registered veterans. Itoriginally was funded by an Elks Lodge grant before it became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.Veterans either had to take a taxi cab „ which cost about $100 „ to the clinic or they simply werent going,Ž Ward said.The group made 395 trips totaling 15,297 miles last year.Santa Rosa County does have a transportation system, but it is unlike Escambia County Area Transit or Emerald Coast Rider in that the county offers a door-to-door service. Residents must call to reserve a time, andthe program stays booked out at least a month. Veterans will nowcompete for those rides, Ward said.Weve had some calls from clients who were worried about their rides,Ž he added.Ward said there are other options for veterans. One possibility isthe local Disabled American Veterans shuttle bus, which takes vet-erans from Eglin Air Force Baseto the VA Clinic in Pen-sacola three days a week.If they can add a stop in Santa Rosa County, veterans may have an easier time get-ting a ride to the stop,Ž Ward said.Veterans needing transpor-tation to theclinic are eligible for the Transportation Disad-vantaged Program and should contact Santa Rosa Transpor-tation at 850-626-6806.Transportation services for veterans to endWard By Alicia Adams 623-2120 | @aliciaadamsSRPG aadams@srpressgazette.comMILTON „The Milton Council approved $20,000 of CRA contingency funds to go to the Main Street Milton program to hire an executive director at the March 13 Community Redevelopment Agency and City Council meetings.According to Watkins, everything the city has received from MSM mem-bers has been compiled into a draft agreement he sent to the council over the week-end and should answer any questions they may have.City Attorney Heather Lindsay presented a recommendation to not fund the MSM program.My recommendation is that we make sure that they have shown compliance with federal and state law before municipal funds are dedicated to Main Street Milton,Ž Lindsay said.Weve been waiting 30 days from the Committee of the Whole knowing were going in this direc-tion and staff has not even personallyƒ reached out to Main Street?Ž Snow asked. To me, that means you reach out to them, ask, try to work it out.ŽLindsay questioned how the city was to know if Cassandra Sharp was the authorized representative for the organization. Snow suggested calling MSM. Lindsay said it wasnt enough to hear confirmation over the phone. There are certain doc-uments that need to be provided.If youƒ actually contact them back or respond... then you might could get some of the answers andƒ all of this might have been resolved by now instead of us having to wait another month for this to go through,Ž Snow said. Lindsay said she wasnt asked to give her opinion, but when her firm realized the council made motions to use the Garden Club building and have two employees funded by the city, her father suggested providing some advice to the council.Councilwoman Sharon Holley expressed concerns about spending tax-payer money on the program and leasing the building to both the Garden Club and MSM City approves $20K for Main Street Milton programSanta Rosa County courthouse [FILE PHOTO] By Alicia Adams 623-2120 | @aliciaadamsSRPG aadams@srpressgazette.comMILTON „ The Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners approved March 15 to move forward with a timeline of events for hiring a design-build team to start work on the courthouse project.At Februarys planning workshop, the board agreed to move forward with the courthouse project via a design-build project delivery, according to County Admin-istrator Dan Schebler.According to a memo from Schebler, the county will select a design-builder using price and non-price qualifications.In this specific type of project, the designbuilder is responsible for managing the details of the design and construc-tion. The design-builder also accepts risks for designing and constructing the project in accordance with the owners criteria.The county staff recommended the advertisement of a request for qualifications for a design-build team to take on the courthouse project, based solely on qualifications.County staff put together a timeline for finding a design-build team, which includes:€ Publishing an RFQ by March 30€ Allowing a 6-week response period for propos-als, ending May 11€ Having the Evaluation Committee review and short list the proposals by June 8€ Presenting the short list to the BOCC for approval June 11€ Holding a special meeting for presentation and selection June 19€ Negotiating and finalizing a contract by July 26€ Submitting a notice to proceed for the courthouse design by August 1The board voted to move forward with the plan and submit an RFQ.County to begin search for courthouse design-build teamSchebler Lowery Snow Watkins Lindsay See DISTRICT, A6 See PROGRAM, A6Snow Holley

The first class will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. March 27, at the DOH-Santa Rosa Milton office, 5527 Stewart Street. The registration fee is $26.00 and includes classes led by a trained lifestyle coach, lab tests and a workbook. Participants may be referred by a primary care provider or self-refer by contacting Susan Howell at 850564-2263 or Ashlee Turner at 850-564-2304 to register. Led by the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-vention, the program is based on research that showed that people with prediabetes who lost five to seven percent of their body weight (10 to 14 pounds for a 200pound person) reduced their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. Guided by a trained lifestyle coach, participants learn the skills they need to make lasting changes, such as losing a modest amount of weight, being more physically active and managing stress.Participants learn how to eat healthy, add physical activity to their routine, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of their success. Classes meet once a week for 16 weeks, then once a month for 6 months to maintain healthy lifestyle changes. The programs group setting provides a supportive environment with people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes. Together, par-ticipants celebrate their successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.People are more likely to have prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes if they:€ Are 45 years of age or older € Are overweight€ Have a family history of Type 2 diabetes€ Are physically active less than three times per week€ Have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes during pregnancy€ Gave birth to a baby weighing more than 9 poundsThe complications from Type 2 diabetes are serious and can include heart attacks, stokes, blindness, kidney fail-ure, and the amputation of toes, feet or legs,Ž said Barb McMil lion, BSN, MS, public health services manager and director of nursing for DOHSanta Rosa. Small changes can make a big difference. This program can help those with prediabetes make the lasting changes they need to prevent diabetes and its compli-cations and improve their quality of life.ŽTo learn more about making healthy choices and preventing Type 2 diabetes, visit the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County web-site at: http://santarosa.floridahealth.gov/programs-and-services/ wellness-programs/ healthy-lifestyles -tookit/index.htmlDiabetes class teaches healthy eating, stress reductionBy Press Gazette contributorMILTON „ The Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County recognizes the value in measuring health out-comes and acknowledges the 2018 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps tool released by the Uni-versity of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This study highlights the many community factors that influence health and uses established data, much of which is available from the department at www.FLHealthCHARTS.com.The County Health Rankings are a useful tool in developing our threeyear community health improvement plan,Ž Sandra Park-OHara, ARNP, administrator of the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County, said. We have a strong network of community partners dedicated to improving the health of our commu-nities and quality of life in Santa Rosa County.ŽThese rankings are a snapshot of the health of counties across the coun-try and they emphasize that health is not a singu-lar effort but a combined work in progress across all community partners. The department works in collaboration with local governments, non-profit organizations, health care facilities, business groups, schools, faithbased organizations and many other stakeholders to improve the health of all people in Santa Rosa County. These rankings use data related to physical environments, social and economic fac-tors, health behaviors and clinical care.In Santa Rosa County, the Community Health Improvement Plan is designed to address spe-cific opportunities for improved health that have been identified by the community. The depart-ment has partnered with many stakeholders to implement the CHIP and collaborates regularly to track progress.The result of one suc-cessful collaboration with the Santa Rosa County School District is the implementation of the 5-2-1-0, Lets Go! program in public schools and daycare centers. The program encourages children to increase their physical activity and adopt healthier eating habits. Encouraging healthy lifestyle choices among children can lead to a reduction in obesity among the adult popula-tion, since habits learned early in life are carried over into adulthood.In an ongoing effort to decrease the countys adult smoking rate, DOH-Santa Rosa partners with the Area Health Education Center to offer free smok-ing cessation classes. Efforts to decrease expo-sure to secondhand smoke have resulted in the adop-tion of smoke free policies in 18 businesses through-out the county.Earlier this month, DOH-Santa Rosa announced that its National Diabetes Prevention Program had again been recognized by the Centers for Disease Control. The evidencebased program teaches adults at risk of develop-ing diabetes the skills they need to make lifestyle choices that can help with weight loss and delay or, in some cases, prevent the onset of diabetes.Study detailing Santa Rosa County health outcomes available[PIXABAY.COM] [PIXABAY.COM] Gaetz

It was an important part of a community paper … our community news paper one where locals could rant or praise. We could keep up on potholes and what elected official had "misstepped" or otherwise made a faux pas or egregious blunder. I realize that "some" (tee hee) got a tad carried away and had to be censored, but it still was the impetus for picking up and even subscribing to the Press Gazette. What are the chances of bringing this community "love fest" back to the Press Gazette? It would be wonderful if it were resuscitated. Thanks a billion.JERRY CUMMINGS Milton Editors note: After some restructuring at the Press Gazette, I believe it will be possible to return this feature. The Speak Out number is 623-5887. When are we going to make a change to our mental health system? Dear editor, Our mental health system fails yet again. Now, my fathers and familys name has been discredited and humiliated. Im the proud daughter of Jerome Scooler „ the burglar, the criminal youve painted a clear picture of. What you failed to mention is that my father has a mental illness. What youre probably thinking is Thats not my problem. Very true and correct. Growing up, my father was a very loving, generous, kindhearted, giving and an irreplaceable piece to my familys puzzle. In the last five years, my father has lost a brother, sister, aunt but also a very close cousin. Needless to say, much grief, turmoil and loss has gone through our family. Does that make it OK to break into someones home? Absolutely not. Whats not fair is painting him as a ruthless criminal, even though our county (Okaloosa) has failed on numerous occasions to give him the treatment and diagnosis that he has needed for years. My father has been to the Okaloosa Bridgeway Center three times in the last three years through Baker Act admissions. That being said, my father has been seen by numerous amounts of doctors and psychiatrist in the last year. Yet, no one has diagnosed my father accurately. Our family has screamed out for help from the police department, Bridgeway Center and Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Yet, here we are. My father, who is now sitting at the Santa Rosa Jail in the psychiatric ward, [was] finally put on medication. Some may ask themselves, Does that make sense? No. Why is it OK for a person that has a mental disease to be painted as a ruthless criminal, yet hasnt received decent treatment until he is apprehended by police? You tell me. When are we going to make a change to our mental health system? Are we just going to keep letting the mentally ill in this community live a hard, struggling life, or are we going to give them the fair treatment and diagnosis that any human should deserve? We are not discrediting the familys home that was invaded and the fear that placed on them. My father left the Friday before, with no money, a tank of gas and lost thoughts. His vehicle ran out of gas, his phone was dead and he was trying to get out of the cold. My father ran unarmed because he was scared and not in his right thoughts. No making any excuses, but asking for humility.AMANDA BIRR Fort Walton BeachLETTER TO THE EDITOREvery bad political idea starts with a false premise. The Affordable Care ActŽ lie, that we had an awful health care system and government could fix it and save families $2,500 a year,Ž spawned the ObamaCare disaster. The Bush-era intelligence agencies fibs were that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and we had to stop him. Thousands of lives and countless wounded later, we rule the rubble after our $1 trillion social studies lesson. With that lie and post-9/11 hysteria came the Patriot Act, which sacrificed freedoms (not patriotic). It created the TSA (Thousands Standing AroundŽ), the Department of Homeland Security, and the FISA court spying on U.S. citizens. Result: the Mueller Witch Hunt. A liberal, a conservative and a libertarian walk into a bar and the bartender says, What will you have, President Trump?Ž Displaying his liberal side, Trump agreed this week to consider stricter gun controls and yielded to the pandering populist economic idea of tariffs. Welfare reform might be next. The difference between a welfare beneficiary and a tariff? If you held a gun to both their heads, the welfare queen might work. Tariffs go against GOP doctrine. The southern evangelicals quickly forgave Trump for cavorting with porn star Stormy Daniels since the economy is roaring and they are getting raises. But if Wal-Mart raises the price of a bass boat because of his aluminum tariffs, the honeymoon might be over. Americans still love Trumps border wall and immigration policy. We are tired of Guatemalans coming to America and taking the low-paying jobs of our Mexicans. We did not fight the Civil War for this; our nation fought it to determine forever that slaves would no longer do the menial jobs in America and that illegal immigrants would. But Trump continues to defy conventional wisdom of the body politic,Ž which would say hed be dead by now. Hes the Keith Richards of politics. The reason? Poly-tics defines Washington D.C. by meaning many ticks.Ž Trump is rich; he is not beholden to the GOP, NRA or any predetermined dogma. He comes to D.C. with no ticks on him, if you dont count Jared Kushner. America loves that. Trumps tariffs have also angered our allies. The UK Prime Minister released an official statement that they were very disappointed,Ž harsh language for the Brits. Very DisappointedŽ is their highest security threat level and punishment for terrorist bombers, right ahead of Tsk, tsk,Ž and Blimey.Ž A casualty of the tariff debate was free-trader Gary Cohn. I worked with Gary at Goldman Sachs, and Trump lost a good man. Trump had tariff advocate and White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro battle it out with Gary Cohn in his office, The ApprenticeŽ-style. He likes that team of rivalsŽ approach. Let two people like Omarosa and Gary Busey compete and you get the best outcome. Next, Trump plans to put a humidifier and a dehumidifier in his office and let them battle it out. And that, my friends, will determine our humidity going forward. Tariffs like this one, favoring some U.S. industries over others, are crony capitalism and an industrial swing-state political ploy. Tariffs are more popular in Wisconsin than Aaron Rodgers jerseys. In some degree, steel tariffs have been imposed by every president since Nixon „ and then adjusted. They are invariably kickbacks to unions and their executives at the expense of employees of other non-protected industries, and every consumer in America, because tariffs are inflationary. Trumps risk is that protectionism, a fast-growing economy, and loss of cheap illegal immigrant labor are all inflationary. They can hurt; just ask Jimmy Carter. Many believe the Civil War was fought over the souths secession after Abraham Lincoln imposed the Morrill Tariff Act of 1861. Slavery would have ended in due course, and the Civil War (and a half million American deaths) might have been avoided with diplomacy „ and if South Carolinians at Ft. Sumter had not gotten jumpy and been so damn trigger happy. Yet, in a recent poll Lincoln was voted our best president ever (and probably their favorite car) by political science professors. College professors listed President Trump dead last: shocker! Lincoln fought unnecessary wars, bitterly divided our country along racial lines, provoked hatred from Democrats, imposed dangerous tariffs, and made a leading actor of the day want to kill him. So tell me, how was he much different from Trump? Ron Hart is a libertarian op-ed humorist and awardwinning author.

Christians will be celebrating the risen savior at Easter, Praise God.This supporter of Christian radio and TV ministries since 1973, who came alive in Christ through them, is now compelled to share what they proclaimandwhat the world desperately needs, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Many dont attend church precluding their access to what Jesus Christ suffered for all providing salvation, eternal life. A favorite, Joseph Prince, is emphasizing a healing this whole month. If the agony of Christs scourging and flaying doesnt make one accept His sacrifice for all, to receive Him as Lord and Savior, to be born againŽ (John 3:7; Romans 10:9 and 10), I dont know what will.If preachers accurately presented His sacrifice frequently, Im sure the Holy Spirit would produce more conversions. If more preachers dwelt on end-time prophecies, a favorite of mine, hearers would be doers busy about the Fathers business. Getting ready to meet our Maker is of paramount importance. Some believe Christs second coming is imminent. My heart is grieved because some believers dont like Joel Osteen, et al. Like Christ, hes an encourager. His father, John Osteen, a blessing, was kicked out of the Southern Baptist Association because he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit speaking in tongues. Thank God he and his son ignored criticisms of some brethrenŽ and sisters.Ž God blessed John Osteen with a 50-year ministry starting over again in a warehouse. Joel did not attend seminary, labeled cemeteryŽ by some, but God is certainly using him and his wife who preaches the Word, too.Christians who cannot love and forgive missed the message of Calvary, all about love and forgiveness. Jesus empowers all to love and forgive by His all-sufficient grace. Hallelujah!I love John 17 where Jesus prays for all.God bless us all as only He can.CHRYS HOLLEY Milton Whats your view?

** simultaneously.Main Street Milton is absolutely in a rebuilding stage,Ž Sharp said. The information you pro-videdƒ we already know this and most of the coun-cil should already know it. Staff should know it.ŽAccording to Lindsay, the city can not give municipal funds to a nonprofit unless it meets certain requirements, including adherence to public records requests and Sunshine Law.Lindsay said she per-ceived the funding would come solely from taxpayer dollars based on prior motions but Snow said that is incorrect „ the only funding would be to get them into compliance with hiring a director.In that case, the program would not have to adhere to Sunshine Law, and Watkins said the agreement can be amended to remove that section.According to Watkins, there is enough money in the CRA budget to hire one person, not two, without having to reallocate money. The director will be chosen by the MSM board and approved by the city manager. Snow motioned to autho-rize $20,000 from the CRA for MSM, and Powell seconded. Snow amended his motion to also approve the agreement put forth by Sharp. The motion passed with only Councilwoman Sharon Holley opposed.During the council meeting, the item to rent the Garden Club building to MSM for $1 per year passed after a motion made by Councilman Casey Powell and sec-onded by Councilwoman Peggi Smith.MSM will occupy and manage the rental facility as office space, storage, meeting space, and fun-draising and membership events, while the city will be responsible for maintenance, insurance and utilities.Margie Baldwin of the Garden Club said they will welcome MSM to the facility, but ask for coop-eration with their club.

It has churches and historic homes.North Elmira is not a place for stand-alone bars,Ž Golden said. Dont take our way of living away from us. Weve spent a lot of money restoring our his-toric homes.

It needs to be protectedƒpreservedƒenjoyed.ŽNone of the properties on North Elmira Street are in an area where a bar or tavern could be established, according to Jorgenson, without a religious institution first opting out of the 500-foot-separation law.Several residents approached the council opposed to the overlay district, and City Attor-ney Heather Lindsay read a letter by Barrie Bamberg of Milton with suggestions for success in the city.Lets work to prove we have something better to offer than drunks on bar-stools, which is what the drinking-only establish-ments of the area have,Ž Bamberg said in her letter.According to Milton resident Theresa Messick, she has a petition signed by more than 60 people located in and around the historic district opposing the overlay district.Resident and busi-ness owner Cindea Booth suggested giving existing investors in the area the opportunity to opt out of allowing bars or taverns near their property, like the churches. Jorgenson said he would need to look into whether that is allowed.Lowery called the question „ a vote to end discussion „ after more than an hour. Snow seconded and the motion passed.The council then voted on the original motion, to move forward with the overlay district and hold a public hearing, which also passed. A6 Saturday, March 17, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press GazettePowell Jorgenson DISTRICTFrom Page A1Smith Lets work to prove we have something better to o er than drunks on barstools, which is what the drinking-only establishments of the area have.Ž„Barrie Bamberg of Milton in a letter By More Content NowThe Insurance Insti-tute for Highway Safety latest t est isnt about the highway and the group isnt talking much about passenger safety this time.Rather, IIHS says its new test is about saving insurance companies and owners money on a surprisingly costly and very annoying type of crashes … Low-speed, reverse parking crashes.The InsuranceŽ part of Insurance Institute for Highway SafetyŽ indicates that this orga-nization was founded by and and funded wholly by insurance companies, who would appreciate it if you would stop crash-ing into things.IIHS CEO David Zuby says that Parking crashes rarely result in injuries, but they often result in expensive repairs.Ž The group gave two examples of minor collisions between a Subaru Outback backing up and hitting another vehicles bumper and a Cadillac XT5 backing up into a rigid parking lot barrier.These types of collisions never seem like much, but they tend to shock consumers when the bill from the body shop comes. A low-speed, parking lot crash like the one described on the Outback would cost consumers… or more likely their insurance company „ $1,899 and the Cadillac XT5s, a whopping $3,477.In both cases, the damage appears very minor, but bumper covers now come packed with proximity sensors, and power tailgates have cameras built-in. Even if those sensitive compo-nents arent damaged, a USED rear bumper cover for a 2017 Outback runs about $300. New would be well into $500 for the part alone, and thats before you prime and paint it, and factor in the labor required to replace it.As a result, manufacturers are adding technology aimed at making low-speed park-ing lot collisions less frequent.Rear automatic brak-ing works the same way that forward emergency auto braking does, but uses simpler technology and works at low speeds. Combined with rear-view cameras, surround view cameras, rear-cross-traffic alerts, and parking sen-sors, automakers seem to be throwing an abundance of technologies at car owners to help keep them out of trouble when backing up.Personal injury isnt an obvious part of the IIHSs evaluation in this case. In 2009, NHTSA commissioned a study to look closely at how many deaths per year were caused by cars backing into or over people. The answer was 292 deaths per year, not surprisingly mostly chil-dren and the elderly. In addition, over 18,000 injuries per year are esti-mated to be caused by a vehicle backing into a person.The result of this study along with increased awareness of the dangers of backovers was a mandate that automak-ers would install backup cameras in all vehicles. Rear-impact auto brak-ing was not part of the mandate, but automak-ers have not let that stop them from developing technology to prevent backing crashes.The Subaru technology was scored SuperiorŽ by IIHS and was one of the two best systems of the six recently tested. Yet, in its advertisements for this system, Subaru points to the technology protecting you.Ž From liability, repair costs, and trouble presumably.IIHS estimates that rear auto-braking systems are only standard on 1 percent of 2018 models and optional of just 5 percent. David Zuby says So, the reason we launched rear crash prevention ratings was to encour-age more automakers to fit more of their vehicles with the more effective technologies. Hope-fully, in doing that, more consumers will choose them and there will be fewer crashes in park-ing situations.Ž John Goreham/ BestRide.com Auto newsFord recently announced it has begun testing two types of self-driving cars in Miami: one for mapping the roads and another for deliveries. For now, safety drivers are behind the wheel of all of the carmakers autonomous vehicles and the company has partnered with companies like Lyft, Dominoes and Postmates to eventually offer ride-hailing trips and autonomous deliveries. Did you knowAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, of the 35,092 people killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2016, 44 percent were not wearing seat belts.

Thats not too unusual, he said, because sometimes the wind activates them.Edward decided to double-check the door but realized the screen was open.I thought to myself, I know I closed that about two hours ago,Ž he said. I went over and took a look and here I see this man, his back to the wall like hes trying to not let me see himƒ It shocked me that there was actually someone there.ŽEdward opened the door and confronted the man, who said he was looking for a friend and had the wrong house.I told him that was a bunch of baloney and he was there to rob my houseƒ and he wasnt going anywhere,Ž Edward said. He was going to wait right there with me until the sheriffs [deputies] got there.ŽThats when the suspect took off on foot.He ran down the stairs and I ran after him for about two houses down from where I live,Ž Edward said. I caught up to him and started to give him very loud verbal orders to get on the ground.ŽAt first, the suspect obeyed the commands but then got up and punched Edward on the left side of his face.

The services currently requested include a self-dispensing ice machine and laundry machines. Applications by commercial operators will be accepted through April 1 with services starting before the summer season.The Fort Pickens Camp-ground Store, which provided many supplies and services to campers in the past, closed at the end of 2016. Efforts to find a new operator for the store were unsuccessful, primarily due to the aging, unappeal-ing store building which was built by the State of Florida nearly 60 years ago when Fort Pickens was a state park. Commercial Use Authoriza-tions provide the national seashore the opportunity to make services available while organizing funding for the buildings rehabilitation or replacement.The self-dispensing ice machine service requested will be similar to those found roadside around the area. The machine will be placed at the campground store location, available for campers and beach-goers. The machine will be required to accept credit and debit cards and applicants are able to propose the capacity and prices.The laundry machine ser-vice requested will provide at a minimum two washers, two dryers, and laundry supplies vending for the A and C loops of the campground, but may install machines at additional loops. The machines will be installed in the camp-ground restroom buildings which were purpose-built for laundry machines accessible through a separate entrance. Machines which accept credit and debit cards are preferred but not required. Appli-cants are able to propose the machines and prices.Authorizations will be awarded for one year of service.

** B4 Saturday, March 17, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette By Press Gazette contributorMILTON „ The Santa Rosa County Commission approved a $100,000 Super Qualified Target Industry incentive for Ropella, a growing executive search firm in the Santa Rosa Indus-trial Park. The company is expanding their headquar-ters and will hire 50 additional employees over the next five years. Ropella got its start in Chi-cago in 1991. In 2008, they built their 13,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters in the industrial park and have grown from five employees to over 40 employees world-wide. The company plans to open offices in Brazil and Asia in the coming months.Ropella is a Santa Rosa-based company that rebounded from the economic downturn in years past and today is expanding almost on a daily basis,Ž said BOCC Chairman Bob Cole, District 2. They have raised the bar not only in their industry but also in architecture in our industrial park. Were very glad to have them.ŽThe company is completing a 2,500 sq. ft. addition and in the coming year will start construction on a 15,000 sq. ft. building, doubling the size of the current facility and cre-ating space for new hires.Ropella is excited to announce our chemical, technology and consumer products company clients are hiring and replacing key exec-utives at a record-breaking pace,Ž said Patrick Ropella, chairman and CEO of Ropella.Ropellas expansion shows that Santa Rosas business climate is attractive to high performing companies that are looking to thrive and grow according to Shannon Ogletree, director of economic development for Santa Rosa County. I applaud Ropella for choosing Santa Rosa County for its continued expansion,Ž he said.The Super QTI Incentive is a performance-based, local incentive for qualifying new or expanding targeted indus-tries and is not paid out until all criteria have been met. Funding for the incentive will come from the economic development portion of the electric franchise fee.For more information, contact Tina Stewart, business development manager, at 981-2071.Milton business wins $100,000 incentive from Santa Rosa County [COURTESY PHOTO] Dear Dave, How do you feel about check cashing companies? „ Norman Dear Norman, Im not a big fan of check cashing companies. Theyre not nearly as bad as payday lenders, but it still seems kind of silly to me theres even a market for this kind of thing. If you want a place to cash your checks and store your money, all you have to do is walk into a bank and open an account. I realize theres a small segment of the population that some people in financial circles like to call the unbanked.Ž This means that, for whatever reason, they avoid banks. Thats their choice, but in the process, they leave themselves susceptible to bad deals. As I said, I dont feel the same way about checkcashing companies as I do about payday lenders. But its still not a financially smart move to regularly pay a storefront operation fees just to cash your checks. „ Dave Heres a better idea Dear Dave, Im 27 years old, and I have no debt. In addition, I have a five-month emergency fund of $14,000. Recently, I started a new job making $60,000. Ive been offered a 401(k) with no match, but I was wondering if instead I should open a high-yield CD. „ Kris Dear Kris, Youre doing very well at a young age. Congratulations. Im glad youre thinking about your financial future, too. But Ive got a better idea. How about opening a Roth IRA with good growth stock mutual funds inside? That would be my choice. Fund it up to $5,500 a year, and make sure the mutual funds have strong track records of at least 10 years. This investment „ growing tax-free „ will be superior to a non-matching 401(k) or certificate of deposit. If you want to invest even more, you could then put additional cash into the 401(k) offered by your company. With your income and maturity, plus the proper investment strategy, youre likely to retire a very wealthy lady. Keep up the great work, Kris. „Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions.
