The Foley Beach Express bridge is CLOSED for the day until further notice. A barge struck the bridge piling barricade in the early morning hours and possibly could have damaged the structure. We want to make sure that everybody stays safe until the engineers are able to assess the damage.

On July 15, you and every other voter in Baldwin County – no matter where you live – can help decide the District 2 County Commission race.  I’m writing today as a private citizen to underscore the urgency of your going to the polls that day.  That’s because the outcome of this race will dramatically impact the future of education in our community.   
 
The simple fact is this – unless the County Commission is fully willing to lead on the issue of public education, rather than using it as an instrument for political advancement or divisiveness – we will never be able to realize our shared vision for creating world-class schools.
 
That’s why I’m personally supporting Chris Elliot in the July 15 runoff for Baldwin County Commission District 2. 
 
Reason #1: Chris sees public education as the #1 driver of economic development for Baldwin County.
 
Throughout this campaign, Chris has said that adequately-funded 21st century schools will be vital to maximizing the economic impact of Airbus and other emerging industry in Baldwin County. 
 
The capacity and continuing success of our public schools will have everything to do with the number of new businesses, new families and positive benefits to be gained from the coming boon.
 
Reason #2:  Chris listens.
 
Over the past year, Chris has sat with hundreds of citizens in living rooms, community centers, everyday settings and special events to learn about their concerns and expectations for Baldwin County.
 
I’ve been particularly impressed that he attended the majority of the school system’s 7 recent Community Meetings on Growth and School Facilities.  There he heard firsthand from school leaders, parents and residents about the critical need to address the problem of overcrowded classrooms and continuing, dramatic growth. (Bob James attended none of these important meetings.)
 
Reason #3:  Chris is committed to doing what’s best for every citizen in Baldwin County, especially children.
 
By seeking every kind of opportunity to hear from residents, Chris has formed or deepened hundreds of key relationships that will inform his decisions and guide his administration of the county’s business.
 
Chris knows that the job of the County Commission is to secure the best possible input in order to make prudent, visionary choices.  He has pledged to work strategically with all of the County’s vital partners and to address each issue on its own merit, never as a political ploy.  I believe Chris will “walk the walk” and not just pay lip service to the ideals of leadership, fairness and trust.
 
As a business owner and parent of an incoming kindergartner, Chris understands that being a champion for  public schools must be the hallmark of his service as a Baldwin County Commissioner. 
 
Please join me at the polls on July 15 to vote Chris Elliot for Baldwin County Commission, District 2.  Be sure your family and friends come out to support Chris, too, as turnout will mean everything that day.  Our votes can make THE difference in this critically important race.

Coastal Alabama Business Chamber Awarded
"Chamber of the Year"
and Two Other Top Awards
by Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives
      
MONTREAL, CANADA -  The Coastal Alabama Business Chamber was selected as 2015 Chamber of the Year by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE).  The award was presented last night at the ACCE Annual Convention in Montreal.   Chamber Chairman Vince Lucido, President Ed Rodriguez, and Membership Director Vicki Stillings were in attendance representing the Chamber at the ACCE Awards Ceremony at Montreal's Palais des Congres.
 
Chamber of the Year is a prestigious international award and is the only award recognizing the dual role Chambers have in leading businesses and communities. Chambers honored with this designation have not only demonstrated organizational strength, but also have made an impact on key community priorities such as education, transportation, business development, and quality of life.
 
Earlier this summer, the Chamber was selected as a Top Three Finalist.  That announcement was made at the Chamber's First Friday Forum breakfast in June, with Congressman Bradley Byrne in attendance.
 
"We are beyond thrilled," said Chamber President Ed Rodriguez.  "To even apply for this award, a chamber must be invited from a small select group.  We are blessed with organizational strength that comes from engaged board leadership, professional staff, and volunteers who truly believe in "serving every member... every day."
 
There were three finalists chosen from among 33 applicants, and participation in the process was by invitation only. To qualify for the award competition, applicants were required to complete a survey and meet or exceed thresholds in key performance areas including finances, membership retention, and other internal benchmarks. Required documentation also included financial statements and audits.
 
The Chamber of the Year award involves two additional stages:  Following the initial benchmarking, chambers are then selected to compete with other chambers in their size categories.  Once the top three are selected, the chambers must conduct personal interviews with ACCE's awards committee before a "Chamber of the Year" winner is selected.  Chamber President Ed Rodriguez and and Membership Director Vicki Stillings participated in the closed interview session with a panel of 3 judges. The interview counts for 80% of the total score.  The two other chambers selected as finalists were the Lake Houston Chamber in Texas and the Vail Valley Partnership in Colorado.
 
During the application process, chambers were asked to identify and elaborate on two specific project areas that exemplified their commitment to excellence both within their communities and within their membership.  The Coastal Alabama Business Chamber's two identified projects were Reef Development and its recent Re-Branding Initiative.
 
In addition to the "Chamber of the Year" designation, the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber received awards last night for being in the "Top Ten Chambers for Membership Retention - Dues" and "Top Ten Chambers for Membership Retention - Accounts."

Open House Gulf State Park Master Plan

Thursday, March 26
4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Orange Beach Community Center
27235 Canal Road 
Orange Beach, AL 36561

The University of Alabama System, on behalf of the Office of the Governor of the State of Alabama and the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, is beginning the master planning process for Gulf State Park.
 
Phase 1 of the master planning process focuses on discovering the existing conditions of the Park. Your input is vitally important as we look for opportunities to improve the environment and economics of the Park and identify challenges to those improvements. Your input will help the Park become a one-of-a-kind environmental and educational destination on the Gulf Coast.
 
The Open House is the best way to add your input to the master planning process. The Open House will include interactive stations about improving the Park's ecosystems, enhancing the local economy, and expanding activities and education opportunities. There will be brief five-minute introductions to the Master Planning Process by the Design Team every 30 minutes beginning at 4:00 PM.
 
Please join us for this interactive and informative Master Plan Open House! Also, share this invitation with your community. We want input from everyone on the future of Gulf State Park.
 
To learn more about the Gulf State Park Project, please visit Gulf State Park Project to find general information about the Project.

An Orange Beach City School System opens the door for special things in Orange Beach. World Class Academic Achievement within a 21st century learning environment will help attract world class health care doctors and their families. It will provide the ability to build a world class hospital and research campus. Our students will have a reason to return to Orange Beach to live and start their families. Our quality of life will soar with young leaders locating to our city to make life better here now and for years to come. We will have our schools, our expectations, our curriculum, our discipline, our support. Local control by a local school board.
It is exciting of what will be achieved by a small city on the Gulf Coast who simply puts our kids future in front of everything. GET EXCITED!!! Few cities have the opportunity that we have on September 23. VOTE YES and let the excitement begin...

The service is terrific. The care and passion for the patient is outstanding and is a part of the culture at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center. I appreciate the care they have given me every time I have come or have been admitted to the hospital.
