Happy Friday morning everyone – here are the big stories from this week!

Val-p residents hold a meeting to discuss the future of the Community Center. The Valparaiso City Commission doesn’t have an agenda set for their next meeting on February 14th as of Friday morning – but the residents at the meeting told me they’ll be there.

A local group launches their plan to keep green space in Bluewater Bay. The Group, Preserve Bluewater Bay, has a lease-to-purchase agreement set to go into effect on March 1st. right now, they are raising money to make the dream of preserving the two remaining nine-hole golf courses in Bluewater Bay a reality.

A Florida State House bill to fund the knocking down of Niceville’s wastewater treatment plant gains some momentum in Tallahassee. The bill made it out of subcommittee this week and still has plenty of hoops to jump through. But, hey, that’s one step closer – right?

Finally, both the Niceville boys and girls soccer teams lost in districts this week. The boys dropped a 4-1 game to Fort Walton Beach and the girls lost a 2-1 decision to Navarre.

This doesn’t mean their seasons are over though – not by a long shot. they still have state playoffs. The girls’ team announced on Instagram they expect to know who they are playing on the 8th. The boys are also waiting to hear what happens next for them.
