I would be interested to know how many upper middle or even low end jobs are available in Pensacola that are not Service (ie. food service, real estate, retail, auto service, entertainment, bars, pawn shops, tattoo parlors, etc.) or Military & local government related.
We haven't even begun to explore the issue of retirees both military and otherwise that bring a lot of money to the area. Point being that this area is almost wholly dependent on having a positive image. A place where people would want to visit and or relocate to, and any unfounded or over-inflated negative press has an impact on us all whether or not you believe it.

well said Diesel! I have lived in Walton Co for over 30 years, I remember tar balls on our beaches many years back and then they had seem to have vanished at some point in time, or I did not go down as much. We do have a few now, w/small BP crews and dip nets picking them up.
I did like our small community as it was back then, but everything changes, and we do need tourism.
