the-lost-dog-by-bryan-kennedyCountry singer, playwright and novelist Bryan Kennedy just released his new novel entitled, The Lost Dog (El Perro Perdido). Providing audiences with a suspenseful romp through murderous intrigue, the book debuts just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Kennedy is a singer, songwriter, author, playwright, actor, keynote speaker and Spot Life Coach. Possibly best known for the three #1 Garth Brooks hits he penned, the Ole Miss football star has written numerous works.

Kennedy’s written works include two plays, two animated cartoon scripts and two children books, in addition to three books for adults.

His own albums include “Dis-Connected,” “I’m so Jealous of Me.” “Life.Love.Laugh” and “Made in the Shade.”

Also the author of Andy Wouldn’t Let Me and the holiday book Charlie’s Favorite Christmas, Kennedy goes heinous this time.

This Saturday, February 28, 6 PM onwards, Seagrove restaurant 723 Whiskey Bravo is teaming up again with the non-profit Angel Flight Soars for the second annual ‘Party with a Purpose’.

Last year’s event raised over $85,000 for the non-profit and owners, Skip and Victoria Moore, said they wanted to celebrate their fourth year in business by again making a difference for those in need.

Angel Flight organizes a network of volunteer pilots to provide free air transportation for people who need to travel to receive lifesaving medical treatment, but lack the means. The Moores began flying missions after they acquired their Cirrus SR22 and Skip received his instrument rating. The organization helps families focus on getting better instead of worrying about how to get there, whether the boundaries are geographic or monetary.

South-Walton-Community-Council-164x252On Thursday, February 26, South Walton Community Council will present Lynn Tipton, director of membership for Florida League of Cities, to speak and help answer questions about the possibility of incorporating South Walton as a city.

Two informational sessions will be held at the The REP in Seaside. One session will begin at 4 p.m. and a second session will be held at 7 p.m.

The sessions will help answer questions, such as:
