Looking each night as I am driving across town it is just plain threatening. It's like watching communism KGB police each night. The police race up and down the highways, blue lights everywhere, seeing cars parked with police blue lights. This scene is on every part of Milton nightly. Milton is now under police communism to make their quota and it has became one of the riches police towns in Florida. If you want to live in Milton be ready to pay.

Yes I would like to know what the definition of the word soon is. The Santa Rosa Press Gazette printed about two months ago that Panhandle Paving was going to fix their screw up going to the access road. My car is still getting beat up. Either you are covering for them or they are lying. This is a mess. My tax dollars at work like this makes me happy.

Editor's note: Those were the words we were given by the Florida Department of Transportation Spokesperson.

Hi, Ron here. to the people in Florida this dispute over public funding for a OHV facility in Milton is getting nasty. Some dirt bike people feel the public funding belongs to them to run a 640 acre park for themselves. The 640 acres is part of the Blackwater State Forest just northeast of NAS Whiting Field. Dirt bike people never change. Governor Rick Scott said no to public funding, but these people feel they need your money for their private business. If you need money borrow it. If dirt bikes are not good for East Milton, then they are not good for North Milton, West Milton, and South Milton.

Jim here. Last Thursday around 3 to 3:15 p.m. my friend and I heard the screeching of tires at the intersection of Highway 90 and Glover Lane. Looking up we had the green light, but this small black car was sideways and slid through the intersection. To this person you left a skid mark at least 75 feet long. Despite your attempt to slow down you still managed to go through the intersection at a pretty good pace. Thank God you did not kill me or anyone else as we did not enter the intersection, despite having the green light. At least you got the ticket.

This is to Rob. You ask how the county commissioners sleep at night for their spending. I went to a basketball game at Central High School last Thursday. They don't have a parking lot at that school. These poor parents and kids don't have a parking lot. I had to turn around and go
