Valparaiso sues Air Force

VALPARAISO, Fla. - The city of Valparaiso has sued the Air Force, alleging that previously requested information about Base Realignment and Closure measures have been withheld. The city wants all Air Force records relating to BRAC, the Joint Land Use Study and the draft Environmental Impact Statement. City officials and residents are worried about noise generated by the Joint Strike Fighter mission's F-35s that that will stand up at Eglin Air Force Base beginning in 2011.
