    @Grand Locust— It seems as if everyone who retires discovers Pensacola.
    @Molino resident—-I would bet money you are either a transplant to Molino within since the new millennium or born in the 80’s or later.

    Excellent to hear. I travel through there 3-4 weeks a month and it really is a very well-run airport with outstanding employees.

    This is good news. There is no doubt that Mayor Hayward has moved Pensacola into the 21st Century. It is about time.

    Very good economic news, As babyboomers retire it appears they are discovering Pensacola. A 20k jump in passengers in June from five years ago is remarkable.
