Meadowbrook selling Hidden Creek By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com On Nov. 29, Meadowbrook Golf will no longer own The Club at Hidden Creek. The golf course has been on the market for more than a year and the going price is $2.25 million according to Scott Beasely, vice president of operations of Meadowbrook. Meadowbrook, a golf course management, maintenance and supply company, owns three golf courses in Northwest Florida. Known as the Emerald Coast Golf Trail, the courses include Hidden Creek,Tiger Point Golf Club in Gulf Breeze, Shalimar Pointe Country Club and Scenic Hills Country Club in Pensacola. Meadowbrook has since sold Scenic Hills to the University of West Florida. Beasley said that his company is being forced to sell the golf courses. “We borrowed $15 million in 2007 to rebuild the club house at Tiger Point and Hidden Creek,” Beasley said.“Two years ago, our lender Textron Financial had $2.2 billion in golf course loans, and they decided to get out of the business completely.” Textron sold and paid off about half of the courses it owned during the first year. “They came to us at the beginning of this year and told us they wanted us to sell the property,”said Beasley.“We never missed a payment, but they said they we’re going to sell the portfolio by November and it was in our best interest to sell.” Beasley said Meadowbrook closed

The Tuscan Grille and The Club at Hidden Creek is in need of new owners. Meadowbrook is asking $2.25 million for the property . with UWF on July 1 for the Scenic Hill Country Club. He added that there was a lot of interest in the remaining three. “I do think between now and the 29th (November), we will sell at least two if not three,”said Beasley. “But it’s one of those deals where nothing is ever done until the checks have cleared.” Beasley noted that Hidden Creek is profitable, even during the last few years, and that is the biggest struggle for him. “The biggest struggle for me is we’ve survived. We’ve never missed a payment and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but we don’t have a choice,”he said. Two weeks ago, Textron sold all of its remaining loans to a trust fund out of Boston, according to Beasley. Beasley said he approached the Holley by the Sea board of direc-

tors about the possibility of selling the course to the homeowners association, but the offer was declined. Pete Peterzen, HBTS board of directors president, said during an Oct. 9 BOD meeting that he had been approached about HBTS buying the property. “I don’t think so, although it’s a good price,”Peterzen said. “I wish that we could’ve sold the golf course to the subdivision, but that won’t happen,”said Beasley. “At Shalimar Pointe there’s a good chance a group of members might buy theirs.” Beasley said that when the property sells, he hopes Meadowbrook will be retained to manage the property. “What I’m trying to do is create an opportunity for Meadowbrook to stay on and manage the course.

Kenneth Gonzalez, 21, of Navarre was charged with DUI, property damage and careless driving on Oct. 20 after driving his vehicle through Hidden Creek Golf Club. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s deputies responded to PGA Boulevard around 11 p.m. because a Nissan Xterra was improperly parked on the golf course. Deputies arrived on scene and knocked on the Gonzalez’s car window to wake him up. The knocking startled Gonzalez and as a result, he stepped on the accelerator and began to travel west through the golf course. According to the report, deputies began to chase the vehicle on foot. The vehicle continued traveling west before entering into the backyard of the residence on Masters Boulevard. The front of the vehicle struck a screen terrace in the back of the residence. Gonzalez was not injured, according to the report, but his vehicle suffered $2,000 worth of damage.

Man arrested after golf course drive

By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com Holley-Navarre Water System has formed a team to review the feasibility of making an offer on The Club at Hidden Creek in Holley by the Sea. Meadowbrook Golf, the owner of the golf course and club is asking $2.25 million for the 150acre course according to Scott Beasley, vice president of operations. The sale of the golf course came up during an Oct. 17 HNWS board meeting.

Ken Walker, HNWS general manager, said that he had first learned the property was for sale after reading about it in the Navarre Press. Walker said that in 1990, HNWS signed an agreement with the Maga Corporation, which later became Bayfront, allowing HNWS to purchase the spray field rights to the Hidden Creek golf course. “So we paid them money to allow us to spray the golf course with our reclaimed water,”said Walker. In 1994, the agreement was

modified and streamlined to give HNWS use of the property. “In the event the golf course cannot be maintained then we can step in and still spray our reclaimed water, even if we have to cut the grass,”explained Walker. When Meadowbrook bought the property in 2003, HNWS worked out an agreement that resulted in an increased capacity for the water company. HNWS spent $650,000 and Meadowbrook paid $200,000 to have new pipes, spray heads

and apparatus installed. “We have about $1 million invested in the golf course spray field already,”said Walker. He said the golf course was important because HNWS would not have any place to disperse reclaimed water if it closed down. Walker described the golf course as prime upland land with very few wetlands. “If we were to try to buy additional land to spray on it would be more than $10,000 an acre,” said Walker.

Natural stones for Memorial Garden

‘Look Ma! I caught the big one!’

By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com Billy Neal received authorization to use flat natural stone for the Holley by the Sea Memorial Garden during an Oct. 9 Holley by the Sea board of directors meeting. Neal had made the request at the Sept. 11 board meeting, but it was recommended by board member Jean Tashlik that standard pavers be used instead of different type of stones. “It looks nicer with consistent pavers,”said Tashlik at the Sept. 11 meeting. Neal came back to the board Oct. 9 to request that he be allowed to go back to his original choice of varied sizes and shapes of natural flat stone, provided the stones are no bigger than 2 feet by2 feet. “Uniform pavers won’t work. Unlike the park (Navarre Park) there are no borders (holding the pavers in place),”Neal told the board members.“I’m trying to keep a natural garden.” Neal also reiterated that the upkeep would be minimum because weeds will be sprayed and the area will be mulched. “We’re back to engraved rock,” said board president Pete Peterzen. The board unanimously approved the use of nonpavers for the garden. Neal later said that he wants to let the HBTS members know that the garden is there and available as a way to honor deceased loved one. He recommended any interested residents to contact him at 850-207-9093 to discuss the types of stones available and the cost of the stones. Neal plans to install the first stone in honor of Lee Steinert who was an active member in many HBTS clubs and organizations.

Come meet Continental at town hall By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com A town hall meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Nov. 3 at the Holley by the Sea Recreation Center to allow residents a chance to meet and learn about the Continental Group that was hired to manage HBTS. Continental has already met with employees and now wants to meet with the homeowners. No time was wasted in learning about HBTS in order to know how best to manage the homeowners association. Terry Gormley, vice president of sales, told the HBTS board of directors at an Oct. 9 meeting that he planned to hit the ground running. The board members approved during a Sept. 25 meeting to finalize the contract between HBTS and Continental. “I think we can

bring a lot to the table,” said Gormley. On Oct. 17, Gormley and Faye Stange, head of human resources, met with about 18 to 20 HBTS employees. “We addressed who Continental is and our objectives,” said Gormley.“It was more of a meet and greet.” Gormley said that employees did speak with him and Stange individually as well to discuss their individual concerns. Stange will set up the payroll system and deal with other HR issues, said Gormley. A second meeting was held Oct. 24 with Gormley, Stange, Rick Benson, operations manager and Karin Spargo, director of accounting present. “Faye (Stange) spent from 12:30-4 p.m. meeting with employees individually to answer questions about dental and medical insurance. Karin’s (Spargo) pur-

pose was to meet with the accounting department to review their processes and procedures, and evaluate computer hardware and just to talk about best practices,”Gormley explained.“Rick (Benson) was there just to get his bearing on the community.” Benson took some time to drive through the subdivision and around the common grounds to self-evaluate the area. “He reported to me that he thought the facilities were wonderful and how terrific the employees were and how everyone he met were wonderful people,” said Gormley. Gormley would now like to meet with the homeowners to get to know them and to listen to their concerns. “The purpose of it (the town hall meeting) is I will be there to answer any questions from the homeowners and to get

their concerns. It will be an open forum to find out where interests and priorities are and what role they would like to see us play,”he said. Gormley will lead the initial transition before assigning other Continental personnel to take over. “I’ll be the face for at least the first 60 to 90 days during the transition then I will pass it on to other people,”he said. Continental was selected to manage HBTS in an effort to improve services. According to its June 26 presentation, Continental will focus on communication between the staff, board members and residents; maintenance documentation; improving financial and accounting practices. The contract was signed Oct. 18 with an effective date of Nov. 1 at a cost of $3,917 a month.

Hidden Creek Continued from page 1 We built it and (have) owned it since 1998. We love the market, the people, staff and community,” said Beasley.“We don’t want to sell, but we don’t have any choice.” Dave Taylor, general manager of Hidden Creek, said that reservations are still being accepted for holiday gatherings. “We’re still booking wedding and events,” said Taylor.“The contract they (individuals making reservations) signed will be honored as far as I know.” Hidden Creek employs 40 workers. Taylor said he still hopes to have a job come Nov. 29. Tiger Point employs 35 people and also is continuing to accept reservations for events. However, sales manager positions at both courses have been eliminated. “We don’t anticipate them (the group out of Boston) closing the doors,”said Terry Cross, Tiger Point general manager.“The only thing we’re doing is liquidating the merchandise because they have not committed to buying our inventory.” If the courses do close and are not maintained, property values could decrease dramatically. In a June 30 issue of Kahn Golf, it was reported that home values plunged after the Ravines Resort, a golf course in Middleburg, went back to the bank and was not maintained. A 4,000 square-foot home dropped $80,000 in value and a 6,000 square-foot home dropped $120,000 in value immediately according to the article. Local Realtor Charles Speer said that he doesn’t think the golf course will close if it is not sold by Nov. 29. “It will most likely still be maintained by the investor who doesn’t want to see a decline in investment,”said Speers. Shalimar Pointe is listed for $1.5 million and is an 18-hole course that sits on 130 acres. Tiger Point is listed for $3.5 million and is a 36-hole course on 350 acres. Hidden Creek is an 18-hole course and is about 150 acres.

Water board Continued from page 1 The asking price of $2.25 million coupled with the closing costs would equal about $10,000 and acre for the property, said Walker. An added bonus to owning the land is that HNWS would have land to build a reclaimed storage tank for reclaimed water distribution to residential areas if needed, explained Walker. William Goulet, HNWS board president, added that owning the land would allow for future upgraded fire protection. “We could run lines through the golf course, and we wouldn’t need a variance because we would own it,”said Goulet. The feasibility study group will be comprised of Goulet, Walker, HNWS Attorney Michael Tidwell and Beasley. HNWS accountant Marvin Beasley and a financial manager would also be consulted. Walker said he would prefer to finance the purchase in order to have the golf course pay for the loan so the cost doesn’t impact the members.The group plans to meet within the next week to begin the study.

Meet your neighbor

Celebrating a lifetime of adventures By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com Eddie Rousell is the type of person who exudes happiness and people can’t help but smile and feel good about themselves when in her presence. It’s no wonder then that when Irving Rousell met her he knew she was different. “I saw something I’d never seen before,”said Irving. That was more than 52 years ago and on Nov. 30 they will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. The secret to their longevity isn’t really a secret, according to Eddie and Irving. “Love, respect, and have to share… and communicate,” said Eddie. Irving reinforced what Eddie said, but he also explained that marriage is a commitment. “A lot of things in marriage, you don’t know until you live,”he explained.“Got to have respect… I said once I get married, I’m married and that’s it, only one wife. It’s respect, honesty and continuing to give the lifestyle you started out with.” Irving remembered about three or four months after he and Eddie married, his friends asked him to go out for a night with the boys. His response? A simple,“I don’t do that because this (gesturing to Eddie) is my half. It just wasn’t for me.” Eddie and Irving met at Eastern Illinois University. Irving was from New Orleans, La., and on a baseball scholarship. Eddie was born in Joliet, Ill., but raised in Gary, Ind. “The first moment I saw him was when I was in the registration line. He was right in front of my mother and me,”Eddie said. Irving also saw her, but according to him, she wasn’t courting then.“She said I was like her big brother,” he remembered. “He kept insisting on taking me for ice cream. He grew on me… he was a nice person and he told jokes… finally I said yes,”said Eddie. “She was a very attractive girl, you see her now. I always thought she was beautiful,” said Irving, but it was at a friend’s house that he was given confirmation. Irving and Eddie were at a friend’s house for dinner one evening and at one point Eddie and their friends went into another room. Irving hung back

eled to Germany to visit them, they interviewed for teaching jobs and were hired. “They placed us in Germany and we worked there until we came back to the U.S. in 2005,”said Eddie. Not content with just staying in one place, they took the opportunity to travel throughout Europe. “We’re so blessed to (have) traveled to every country while in Germany, except Greece,”said Eddie. Even after their return to the U.S. in 2005 and making a home in Holley by the Sea in 2007, they still love a good adventure. Their daughter, who now lives in Manila, Philippines, working as an immigration lawyer, provided them with yet another chance to travel. “We’ve gone over twice to be with her, and each time we traveled throughout Asia, except Vietnam and Korea,” said Eddie. “I have a lifetime of adventures between the two of us I can conjure up, and (I can) sit here for hours and enjoy myself,”said Irving with a smile.

Hi, Billy! Noah had a really great time last Saturday at the Take a Kid Fishing event y’all put on. He caught his first fish (which he told us was about a foot longer than it actually was- and the fish tales begin...), and LOVES, LOVES, LOVES his fishing pole. I’m so glad Melissa thought of us and included us.Thank you very much for a great event and for letting him be a part of it. The picture my dad, Don, took of Noah with his“prize catch”is attached.

Architectural matters discussed

By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com

Variance requests and violations were discussed during an Oct. 9 Holley by the Sea board of directors meeting.The first to be addressed was a double variance request for a fence and a boat concrete pad at 7737 Seaward Street. The owner submitted a bid he received to the HBTS architectural committee for the boat concrete pad. He was requesting the variance before having the company he selected complete the project.The issue discussed was whether the owner had designed the boat pad in such a way as to have appropriate drainage. Pete Peterzen, HBTS board president, asked if the owner had discussed the boat pad with his neighbors. The owner stated he had and that the design of the boat pad would ensure water did not run off into his neighbor’s yard. “I have a drainage easement in front and it’s angled toward my garage and leans toward the front of the property,”said the owner. In addition, he would install underground drainage. Peterzen asked him about the elevation of the property. “It’s pretty even,”said the owner.“For me to angle the pad toward my house would be beneficial for my neighbor, but to me also.” The board unanimously approved the fence and the boat pad variance requests. The next architectural issues discussed focused on enforcement. The residents of 7095 Jasper Street have had problems dating back to

2010, according to Robert Loy, chairman of the Architectural Committee. Loy said he originally requested the matter over noncompliance be sent to legal, but prior to the board meeting the owner remedied the violation. No further action was taken. The next home located on 1950 Aurora Street has had a series of complaints over yard noncompliance.The ACC sent several letters informing the owner he was out of compliance and photographs were taken showing the yard with no grass. The owner indicated to the ACC that he was grandfathered and didn’t need to have sod or sprinklers installed. The ACC reviewed the covenants and the section dealing with lawn maintenance is clear that homes should have sod and sprinklers. When the ACC finally received a response from the owner, his answer was“he is going to sue for $2.2 million, own the recreation center and fire everybody who is employed,”according to Loy. Peterzen said that legal may have to discuss grandfathering the sprinklers, but the owner must keep the property in good repair. Board member PatTraynor asked Loy if the covenants were being applied equally to all homeowners. “My problem with most ACC problems, to me, is selective enforcement,” said Traynor. Peterzen replied that“selective enforcement is being aware and not forcing; it’s not, not being aware.” The board approved 4-1 to send the matter to legal withTraynor opposing. The next violation, 2554 Elkhart Street, also dealt with an unkempt

yard. Loy told the board members that several letters of violation were sent and that the owners refused to sign for the last violation letter. The issue dates back to May. The owner is refusing to remedy the violation, mainly removing trash and refuse in the yard. “It’s more than waiting for the next trash pick up,”commented Peterzen. The board unanimously approved sending the matter to legal and suspended the owner’s usage privileges. Loy then asked the board members to approve John Resch as a new ACC member.The request was unanimously approved.

The Holley by the Sea Fishing Club is seeking a drummer, a bass player and a vocalist to complete a band. “We’re just old dudes that rock,”said Jim Strickland, HBTS fishing club treasurer. “I like southern rock, a little bit of county, classic rock, I’m open to anything.” Strickland said that he just wants to make some music and have fun. He plays guitar and has another guitar player, but what he really needs is a vocalist, drummer and bass player to round out the band. Living in HBTS or being a fishing club member is not required to join the band, said Strickland. The goals of the band will be determined by how good the band members are. “(If) we’re good enough to do something special, we would,”said Strickland.“We could play at HBTS gatherings… that type of thing.” But really, he just wants to make some music. “It’s not about me,” he explained.“It’s about what the singer can do and the rest falls into place. Basically we’re there to back up the singer.” For more information on joining the band, contact Strickland at 850-462-1427 or strickjim@hotmail.com.

Japanese maple and crepe myrtles, the manicured bushes, the walkway, the paved seating area, and the old whiskey barrel that serves as a rain catcher are just few of the details that draw one’s attention to her home. But if the front yard is the flawless face that catches the eye, the back yard is the body that lures one in to soak in its beauty. It’s also why she was awarded the NovemberYard of the Month.

The scalloped-contoured knock-out rose beds that line the fences, the stonework of the deck that smoothly transitions to the pool, the lava rock that accents the red brick of the house.The sable, windmill, canary, Chinese fans and the Washingtonia palms are placed in just the right spots to draw one’s eye to the pool. Mimi simply loves what she does. “I love it out here,” said Clark.“Everywhere I’ve been,

this is what I’ve done, even rental houses.” Mimi is married to Mike, a retired Air Force pilot, which meant living in many locations. The Clarks moved to Holley by the Sea eight years ago from South Dakota when Mike transferred to Eglin Air Force Base. After building their home, Mimi didn’t waste any time in landscaping her yard into her vision of manicured beauty. Her talents extend beyond

the yard though. She built the colorful birdhouses that dot the landscape, the chairs that invite a neighbor to sit and talk and the bench under the birch trees. She also does electric work and painting, as well as helping out her neighbors when needed. “I do a little bit of everything,” she said. Many times people talk about how well they do something, but not Mimi. Her work simply speaks for itself.

“I could do this all day long,” she said about working in her yard or garage completing the next wood working project. So take a drive or walk by this little gem in HBTS, and when Mimi is spotted outside, stop and say hello because that is another aspect of working outside that she likes. “I just love being out here… people coming by, (I) get to meet them and talk to them.”

Architectural Committee Much concern has been expressed regarding travel trailers, RVs and mobile homes parked on residential lots within the community. For clarification purposes, a travel trailer, RV and/or mobile home are one in the same at Holley by the Sea as all are registered as a recreational vehicle. Under no circumstances are guests or family members allowed to live in the recreational vehicles on a residential lot. ArticleVII, Section 2. States ‘…all primary structures are required to be“build on site.” No modular structures or mobile homes shall be allowed.’ Section 10. No camper, self-propelled mobile home, trailer, boat, any vehicle that has commercial signs, advertising, or commercial equipment visible, or any vehicle which is used or intended for use primarily to haul or carry material and/or equipment shall be stored or parked on any residential lot or portion thereof unless the same is enclosed in a permanent structure or a special permit has been issued by the Architectural Control Committee. Nor shall any such camper, self-propelled mobile home, trailer, boat, any vehicle that has commercial signs, advertising, or commercial equipment visible, or any vehicle which is used or intended for use primarily to haul or carry materials and/or equipment be parked on any public streets or on open space within the property subject to this Declaration or any Supplemental Declarations, known as Holley by the Sea. Section 26. No radio towers, satellite receivers, aircraft, recreational vehicles, jet skis, engine hoists or other objects that, in good faith judgment of the Association are incompatible with the Holley by the Sea development, shall be located in the front or side yards. In the event you have visiting friends and family members arriving in recreational vehicles, please contact the Front Desk to reserve one of our ten campsites.

The Holley by the Sea Rec Center is a drop-off site for Toys for Tots. Please donate new and unwrapped toys in the box located in the front lobby. Contacts are Dawn Lawrence and Sarah Sullivan, 850-939-1693 ext. 3. Your Donation at Work The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation enjoys one of the very best program to support ratios within the nonprofit world; 98:2. This means that over 98 percent of your donation goes to our mission of providing toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children. The 2 percent spent on support principally covers fundraising expenses - not one donated dollar goes to pay for salaries or any other manpower costs. Out of nearly two million nonprofit organizations in the United States, the Foundation was ranked #72 in the 2010 Philanthropy 400 published by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. History of Toys for Tots Toys for Tots began in 1947 when Major Bill Hendricks, United States Marine Corps Reserve and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. The idea came from Bill’s wife, Diane. In the fall of 1947, Diane handcrafted a Raggedy Ann doll and asked Bill to deliver the doll to an organization,

A word from the Toys for Tots drop-off point at HBTS general manager: which would give it to a needy child at Christmas. When Bill determined that no agency existed, Diane told Bill that he should start one. He did just that! The 1947 pilot project was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign.That year, Marine Corps Reserve units across the nation conducted Toys for Tots campaigns in each community in which a Marine Reserve Center was located. Marines have conducted successful nationwide campaigns at Christmas each year since 1948. I challenge each of you to join me with ensuring the dreams of our children become a reality, in 2012.

HBTS traffic concerns being addressed By Yvonne C. Harper HBTSnews.com Holley by the Sea has seen more Santa Rosa County deputies citing drivers for speeding through the subdivision since Sheriff Wendell Hall was given authority to reinstitute a traffic unit. HBTS residents addressed the county commissioners during an Oct. 8 meeting to discuss the increasing traffic issues and threats to public safety in the residential community. “There are 4,700 tax paying lots; 3,000 to 4,000 voters; and 7,000 to 9,000 residents,” said Pete Peterzen, HBTS board of directors president.“The increasing population is causing increasing traffic and threats to safety in our residential community.” Peterzen explained that because HBTS is so large, drivers are tempted to speed, especially on Edgewood Drive, which connects County Road 399 and U.S. Highway 98. “We are asking for county support across the board,” said Peterzen. Pat Traynor, HBTS board vicepresident, told the commissioners that he understood the county budget constraints, but human life is more important than budgets. “(We) don’t care how much money you spend to save one (life), it’s important,” said Traynor.“You’re our leaders and I hope you’ll help us climb this mountain of a problem.” Hall provided the commissioners with facts regarding the number of times his

deputies have gone to HBTS in the last year. “Just last October to now, we’ve been in Holley by the Sea 3,630 times for calls,”Hall said. He said that included alarms, burglaries, civil processes, etc.“... 302 traffic citations have been issued so far.” Hall said that he is still short 19 officers due to budget cuts and he had to stand down the traffic unit that had consisted of four motorcycle officers that worked traffic only. “If you authorize me to do that, I’ll reinstate the traffic unit,”said Hall. During the Oct. 11 board meeting, county commissioners authorized Hall to hire up to four deputies for the unit. The commissioners were unanimous in allowing Hall the discretion to start with two deputies and depending on his budget, the ability to hire two more for the traffic unit. “Rather than us trying to dictate, let’s authorize up to four and let the sheriff in his discretion… start out with two and see where he goes from there,” said Commissioner Lane Lynchard. Hall stated during the Oct. 9 meeting that he could stand the traffic unit back up using funds from his budget, provided the county would provide relief should the cost exceed his discretionary funding. “We’re looking at probably $60,000 per officer (for salary and equipment),”Hall told the commissioners.“We may very well be able to absorb it (the cost).”

“We can start with two and as the budget year progresses, we’ll know where we are,” said Hall.“We’ll do it accordingly providing our funding is holding, but (we) won’t go over four.” Commissioner Jim Williamson cautioned Hall to start off slow. “We don’t want to have to come back and say we have to cut people,”Williamson told Hall.“Start off slow (and) make sure the jobs are secure so we don’t have to lay people off.” In a follow-up question, Commissioner Bob Cole asked Avis Whitfield, public works director, if he had any information on placing stopsigns in the Holley by the Sea subdivision. “We’re evaluating the intersections that are identified as the busier road ways and which intersections are best suited for multi-way stops,”Whitfield said.“It will take a couple of weeks.” The commission unanimously approved allowing Hall to hire up to four deputies for the traffic unit. In an update, Hall said that his deputies are working HBTS daily with overtime positions. Hall has hired two officers and when they complete field officer training, he’ll have two more deputies to add to patrol which will allow him to standup the twoman traffic unit. “Our presence is being felt and of course it’s definitely making a difference,”said Hall. He added that the traffic unit will work the county though, not just one area.
