Donald Trump has finally said something almost everybody agrees with — except for a few guys whose opinions are the only ones that really matter. Reckless, purposely provocative rhetoric is a mainstay of Trump’s comeback campaign.

In honor of the Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Camp Gordon Johnston is presenting an exhibit commemorating this dark day in America’s history. World War II came home for the United States on December 7, 1941, when the naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan attacked the U.S. Western Fleet at the American base Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.”
Residential Sewer Billing is based on water usage. Now is the TIME to CONSERVE water and SAVE MONEY on your Sewer Bill over the Next YEAR! Wakulla County utilizes the winter months average method for sewer billing. With this method, the amount billed for sewer each month is the average of the actual number of gallons used during December, January, and February. This typically is beneficial for customers who use more water during the summer months than they do during the winter months. Important notes about your winter months average:
Pay attention to when your water meter is read – your December bill will generally have some November usage. Start conserving now!
Take time during these months to review actual water usage – if it seems high – LOOK for leaks and repair them immediately!
