Much to the consternation of airport opponents, Bush has invited 500 people in Bay County to join him today in an economic summit focused on what should happen with St. Joe Company's property. But participants won't be asked whether the new airport should be built or whether taxpayers should foot the bill for the $210 million project. Instead, they will be asked what businesses and jobs they want to see as part of the new development St. Joe is planning for the 70,000 acres it owns around the airport. Word was that only people with invitations will be allowed to attend.
