A new restaurant in Navarre is on the horizon where the old Helen Back Pizza used to be. The restaurant chain Fatboys has announced they expect to open later this year. They are well known for their burgers, wings and more. You can read all about it on our Business page (4A).
I am crazy about aircraft of all kinds but get particularly excited over military aircraft.
Living in Navarre nestled among the many military bases and airfields, I’m three-for-three in the real estate maxim, location-location-location.
July is here and as I’m writing this – the fourth is tomorrow.
By the time you receive this, July 4, 2023, will be a two-day-old memory. However, I have some trivia for you to use next year. These are referenced from a “Good Housekeeping” article, but double checked with personal comments by yours truly.

As a local, you have an advantage to plan to go when the timing is right because, hopefully, we have many opportunities to go. I apply the same principle when I go to Destin during the summer. First of all, I do my best not to go during the summer.
Pensacola Blue Wahoos outfielder Dane Myers has been named the Southern League Player of the Week.
He went 10-for-25 last week in a series against Biloxi, hitting three home runs and driving in 10 runs.
