BUZ LIVINGSTON: A surplus of spring breakers and a taxing situation

Published: Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 05:21 PM.

Let’s cut and paste Bay County’s good idea. Otherwise, Walton County taxpayers pick up the whole tab.

Speaking of taxes but changing gears, I’m sure there’s a logical explanation why Pensacola will have a new bridge soon without a tax or toll. Doncha feel like Charlie Brown when Lucy snatched the ball? Pensacola Bay’s rickety, aging Three Mile Bridge gives me the hebejebees every time I cross it and a replacement can’t come too soon.

They played their hand better than we did.


Walton Sun Pick and Pans

Let me give a big huzzah for the recent prescribed burning story in The Sun. I remember the smoky aroma permeating clothes and truck cabs during burning season. Prescribed burns are as much a part of South Walton County as sand, sunburns and salt air. Without prescribed burns, we risk disaster.

On the flip side, paraphrasing the Godfather of Soul, please, please, please stop including Greece and Washington, D.C., in the same sentence. Both nations have debt but the similarities end there. Galveston and South Walton both have beaches but, as observed by our Texas-locked daughter, are very different.
