Meeting draws opponents

MILTON, Fla. -- An Air Force plan to use Blackwater State Forest for training drew a crowd of about 200, many opposed to the plan. The meeting, originally scheduled for two hours at the Milton Community Service, went about 45 minutes over schedule as two dozen people stood to ask pointed questions and voice concerns. The Air Force said the maneuvers would only be held with monitoring by the Florida Forest Service. But some in the audience criticized that state agency too.
