  • nursejdavis: I am looking for a few Press Releases from Kevin Hillman that have disappeared.... not sure why they would be hidden from the public unless they contain narcs who have gotten their charges dropped for their cooperation. Seems the same Press Releases were also deleted from Facebook. Thanks for any help in locating these

  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Is that true Valor? Did he ask you what you wanted?
    March 01, 2016, 04:55:37 AM
  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

 Mark OBrien December 27, 2009
The roadway was wet and the Sunday night air was a mixture of darkness, headlights and fog. The Cadillac zoomed across the Pensacola Bay bridge, doing more than 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. 
The 26-year-old driver apologized when the Gulf Breeze police officer in the unmarked truck stopped her at the Pensacola end of the bridge.
"She said she wasn't paying attention. She was talking on the phone," said Dalyn Wilson, a police officer for 10-plus years. "You get that a lot."
Sure enough, the next speeder said the same thing. The 39-year-old woman in the white van was driving 66 mph. A nurse, she was headed to work.
Wilson wasn't surprised. "At least she was honest," he said.
Wilson cited her for speeding more than 20 mph over the limit, a $281 fine, but gave her warnings rather than tickets for other violations following a vehicle too closely and not having a driver's license in her possession. Those citations would have put the tab at more than $400.
"I'm not going to be a financial burden on someone," he said, "but at the same time I've got a job to do." Hybrid on patrol Wilson's job has an unusual twist. He's driving a hybrid vehicle as the police department tries to cut fuel consumption now about 2,000 gallons a month, Chief Peter Paulding says.
The hybrid, a Chevy Silverado 1500, makes a big difference. In Wilson's last police vehicle, a Dodge Charger, he averaged 10.7 miles per gallon. With the hybrid, he gets 18.6 miles per gallon, thanks to the electric motor that helps run the hulking vehicle.
If the department got that kind of mileage for all two dozen of its vehicles, its fuel costs "could drop about 50 percent," Paulding said. Lower fuel costs mean more money for law enforcement.
The department can't afford hybrids; this hybrid came via a federal grant that focuses on traffic safety. Fast company The truck is plenty powerful when it needs to be. Wilson recently caught two men racing on the bridge at 102 mph. Another night, he caught a 17-year-old girl traveling 96 mph with three other teens in the car.
Wrecks on the three-mile bridge are ahead of last year's pace, and "it's all due to speed," Wilson said.
Wilson, who works from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., doesn't mind if people learn to watch out for his tan truck, unmarked except for its "hybrid'' insignia.
"It's a deterrent," he said. "If people recognize it, they're going to slow down."
Not everyone, of course.
"I still catch plenty," he said.
JB needs to check into this Hybird grant.
