Re: Donald Trump You're Fired!

DT pulling out of the debate at last minute - is just to get more free publicity - much more than he would get if in the debate.

Re: Navarre Beach Renourishment Project Update

We happened to be there when it was happening. There was seashells galore. Fun times. Hoping to hit it when they do it again. Last I saw, Pensacola had already green lighted their side. I would presume same company would be doing it.
