Praise for Crestview murder case's investigators
Every time I drove by Ms. Melvin's home, seeing how Mother Nature was taking over the property, I wondered if the case would ever be solved.
Such a tragedy and waste of a life.
Thank goodness we had dedicated law enforcement determined to find the truth and solve the case.
Thank you for your hard work.
Antioch Road's potholes have been an issue
Antioch Road is horrible. People are constantly swerving into other lanes trying to avoid hitting holes that are going to blow their axles out of place. This has been an issue. I drive with three small children and am terrified to get hit by a car that's swerving to avoid these holes every time I leave my house.

What to do about road repairs
Everyone that wants change needs to flood the county roads supervisor with emails and letters stating their concern. I have emailed two times with no answer!
From storm damaged roads still not fixed — Oak Hill — to issues with Antioch — heavy traffic, pot holes — to S.R. 85 — inadequate turn lanes/lanes in general — we need changes!
Crestview keeps growing but no one is looking to upgrade the infrastructure.
All local football teams need EvoShields
Excellent news that the Haugen Foundation has provided the Shoal River football players with their own customized EvoShields.
I hope all of the Okaloosa and Walton County Schools' football teams will apply for the grants to get the EvoShields for all of their players, too!
Beyond campaign attack ads...
The sad thing, really, is there are real issues to be discussed. There are real decisions facing the county in the next few years that will have impact beyond our lifetimes. Our kids deserve better.
Here's another campaign pet peeve
One for me is putting campaign signs up in illegal areas. If you can't be bothered to ask someone's permission or find out who owns the land then you don't deserve to be in office.
Proposed Hospital Drive service road needed
This has been needed for a long time. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't support it.

Solution for smoker debate
The solution is simple. Charge the business owner a couple hundred bucks a year rent ....
Instead of focusing on the smoker...
I think the city should be focusing more of their efforts on other things with this city like improving roads and traffic issues. Also trying to get more businesses to set up in Crestview.
Why give unincorporated residents a tax increase?
Yep, stick it to the rural residents to pay for what will mostly benefit the urban ones. That makes sense.
Could current tax revenue fund repairs?
Why won't the current tax money supposedly saved pay for these road repairs? Why is the solution to always raise taxes? Where is the county reserve money?
What about state emergency funds everyone supposedly received to make repairs? I'm sorry but I don't agree with this one bit!
Praise for estate's K9s for Crestview donation
Thank you for such a generous donation to a cause Diane Gilbert would have loved.
