 TRAFFIC RELIEF PLAN TOO LATE

(I’ve been) living here in Okaloosa County since 1985 at 37 years old. And now I see the year 2040 planning stages for Crestview State Road 85 is six-laning south of Shoal River to the I-10 interchange, along with other studies.

By this time, I'll be 92 years old. So does that mean 25 years from 2040 they might include wheelchair-accessible lanes? I won't even be on Earth. All I can say is, "Enjoy, great-grandchildren.”

This should've been in the planning stage before I was born. What did they call this? Hindsight is 20-20. No doubt.

EXCITED FOR MERCHANTS’ VISION

This would be great. What's the plan to lure business to downtown Main Street? We have lost so many good places in the past due to lack of support from an association like this, so this is a positive step!

I would love to see some cafés, wine bars, and some nice places (where) we can consult with clients and customers and have small meetings. Excited for a change.

FED UP WITH HIGH GAS PRICES

We should do what they did up in Alaska: show proof that you live in Crestview, via ZIP code on a Florida drivers license, and get at least a 10 percent discount. Pay a fine if you lie.—Andrew Soileau Jr.

I refuse to fill up in Crestview. I work in Niceville, live in Crestview, but I make sure to always fill up in Niceville.—Jeannie Johnson

We try not to get gas here. If we are anywhere else we will top it off before we leave so we don't have to pay outrageous prices in Crestview!—Bonnie Clary

 

CRESTVIEW NEEDS AN AMPHITHEATER

I wish our community would build an amphitheater like the one in Orange Beach to bring in revenue and entertainment.

By hosting concerts, our community businesses would benefit from hotel rentals, merchandise purchases, food sales, and provide jobs for Crestview residents. It would be incredible.

PRAISE FOR ‘AMAZING, INSPIRING’ EFFORTS

Could not be more proud of these young people. My heart swells with pride to know that one of these recipients is one of the kindest, most giving, loving of Jesus’ people I am lucky to call a friend.

All week I have thought how happy it makes me to see someone, who truly gives all their time, receive such a special blessing. I am also proud of the kids and adults who volunteered. I can only imagine the pride they will have when they see how much their work impacted others.

Thank you, mission group, and families who donated your funds and children to participate in such an amazing, inspiring thing.

THANKS FOR THE HARD WORK

I was so proud to wake and see these beautiful Christians working on my neighbor’s house, doing God's work for our hometown.

Love you all, and (you’re) in my prayers. Thank you all again for all the hard — hot — work. I can see God smiling.
