Help the Daniel Palmer Home

Posted on: January 29th, 2015 by brent

Corporal Daniel Palmer is a lifelong resident of Milton, Florida in Santa Rosa County. He came home in 2012 severely injured. Daniel is married to Becky and they have two children, Cameron and Vanessa Faith. Daniel was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, U.S. Marine Corps.

Daniel enlisted in the Marine Corps in June 2008. He deployed to Marjah, Afghanistan in December 2009 as a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. On March 20, 2010 Daniel was wounded while patrolling in Marjah, Afghanistan. He stepped on an IED, improvised explosive device, causing the loss of his right foot and a portion of his lower leg. He is being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other medical issues.

After Daniel’s injury, he was sent to a medical facility in Germany where he was treated for a week. From there he went to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for almost a month. Daniel was then transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he received physical therapy treatment for about nine months.

After his treatment in Washington, Daniel was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. for two years. There he went through the military medical board process and was medically retired in August of 2012 with 90% disability.

Daniel and his family returned home on July 27, 2012, to a thunderous welcome-home celebration at Pensacola International Airport. Hundreds of well-wishers were in attendance. Gulf Coast Veterans In Need organized this homecoming and has worked since to support the Palmer Family’s transition to civilian life.

The Santa Rosa County Veterans Memorial Foundation and the Gulf Coast Veterans in Need groups have been diligently working to build a new home for this local hero and his family. With a January groundbreaking in Chumuckla, Florida, it is expected that the home will be completed by summer 2015.

Additional help is needed. Blackie Black, Bagdad Construction, is the home builder who is generously donating his time and leadership for this project. For information on building material donations or volunteering, please call Blackie at (850) 572-8563.

Pensacola Grand Mardi Gras Parade Feb. 14

Posted on: December 28th, 2014 by brent

The Pensacola Grand Mardi Gras Parade is annually the largest and most extravagant parade in Pensacola. This parade itself, brings the most attention from the public and the highest traffic with attendees and participants numbering in the hundreds of thousands, is the largest gathering of people in Downtown Pensacola during the entire year. The Grand Mardi Gras Parade features most of the Krewes from the area, local organizations and companies and everything from marching bands to Scout groups. Many parade entrants come from out of town as well. The parade has over 6000 people who participate in the parade, often over 100,000 t the parade. Media coverage is tremendous with the largest parade than we do, but none have any bigger. The parade is broadcast live on local TV and coverage of the parade including radio, TV, print, and social media has a reach of literally millions.

 

The parade takes place on Palafox and Garden Streets in historic downtown Pensacola. The Parade starts at 2:00pm and continues until around 6:00pm. Before, during, and after the parade, we work to insure a children’s viewing area where there will be kid friendly food, face painting, and other family friend entertainment. This area will have no alcohol allowed and special security will be provided to insure families have a relaxing time at high energy parade. Children love the special barricade available only to families where they can catch more beads and candy with no teenager challenge. The Grand Mardi Gras Parade is by far the the largest event of Mardi Gras and of Downtown Pensacola annually, and will prove to be the highlight of the season again this year.

WAYS TO PREVENT MOSQUITO-BORNE ILLNESSES

Posted on: May 6th, 2014 by Chris

Due to flooding from heavy rains over the past several days, the Florida Department of Health would like to remind everyone of the importance of protecting themselves against mosquito-borne diseases. The public should remain diligent in taking precautions to eliminate areas where mosquitoes may breed and reduce the possibility of being bitten by mosquitoes:


DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying.

- Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

- Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren’t being used.

- Empty and clean birdbaths and pets’ water bowls at least once or twice a week.

- Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water.

- Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use.

COVER skin with clothing or repellent.
CLOTHING – Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present.

REPELLENT – Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old.

Tips on Repellent Use
- Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children.

- Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide) are generally recommended. Other US Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label.

- Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing.

- In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate.

- According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old.

- Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the child’s skin and clothing.

- If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing.

- Again, always follow the manufacturer’s directions.

- Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios.

To determine which repellent is right for you, consider using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s search tool for skin-applied repellent products here.
