Northwest Florida is positioned to be a leader in economic growth for the state, said state Senator Don Gaetz on Tuesday, June 18. "We're in the position to be a pathway of growth for not just Northwest Florida, but the entire state, in the next 10 to 15 years," Gaetz said.

10 or 15 yrs from now he panhandle is going to be the same. It's a welfare area, you don't have to work, just stay home and collect from the state.

Four lane 79 from I 10 to airport, distribution co. or some other industry. When Mish. tire co started there were stacks of papers with people looking for a good job. I am sure if work was offered there would be people standing in line asking for a job. The youth have almost no chance of a good job in this area now, but if jobs were here they would stay and there would be a tax base to help the county. I have faith in our youth they will take a job if offered.

The problem is most of us have taken crap jobs until we worked our way up or found something better.The problem is most people nowadays wont take just any job because they think it is beneath them and they dont want to relocate for work either so they would rather just be unemployed and collect welfare.Even if company comes here that is a good job they will want experienced people.Thats the reason we have so many illegals is everyone thinks they are worth at least $20 an hour or its not worth their time and they dont want anything that involves actual labor.Right now there is a shortage in our area for skilled mechanics and it pays good but nobody wants to go into that because its hard work.Now alot like corrections or state jobs because they dont have to do anything. Problem is there are more lazy people than there are state jobs around here.

Just because you use your mind instead of your back to do your job doesn't make it easy.
