Article Headline: Former Manatee High Assistant Principal Kane Resigns From District


Comment:
After taking what I believe is unjustified salary after his failure to properly protect minors in his care, I am glad that Mr. Kane has finally had the grace to resign. I agree that Mr. Faller should do the same. If he fails to do so, I expect the School Board to terminate this man for his failure to protect minors in his charge.

Comment:
It would be prudent and wise to make sure you can spell and write your response. No one should take anyone seriously that can't string two sentences together.

Article Headline: Tax Collector Tells BOCC of Growing Pains


Comment:
Why do we have to demolish perfectly good buildings? Why not re design the ABC building, and add to it if necessary. Instead of demolishing, why not dismantle and use the same materials? Sooner or later we are going to have to learn to do this or destroy the Planet.

Article Headline: Tampa Bay Homeless Organization Under Fire for Not Paying Workers


Comment:
this country has always been the rich taking advantage of the poor.And they for the mostpart get away with it because we talk about it and discus it and then go back to our daily lives and forget about it.

Article Headline: BOCC's Best Indigent Health Care Options Require Help from Tallahassee


Comment:
The lack of compassion for ordinary folk among the majority of the BoCC speaks volumes about them as persons. There is no excuse for refusing to accept tax dollars already paid by us to help the medically indigent. I can only imagine how fearsome the thought of a possible afterlife will be for these commissioners in the future.

Article Headline: Manatee School Board Pushes Votes on Faller and Kane Terminations to January


Comment:
Ignoring obvious or what should have been obvious sexual intimidation/abuse of minors in their charge is a serious matter. Allowing administrators to keep their jobs is inconsistent with the best interest of students, faculty and staff. In fact, job maintenance smacks of support for poor conduct.

Comment:
While Bustle & gang continue to subsidize millions of dollars to wealthy developers Neal & Beruff in the form of charging no impact fees to these plutocrats, they can't find pennies for the poor. You probably are not surprised by these pair of scrooges that thrive while sick & poor are ignored. Not to worry. Neal's & Beruff's legacy will be: the richest persons in the cemetery. Be very careful of those "generous" givers that demand publicity and compliance before the check is signed. And, oh yes. I wonder what these two dead beats will reward their employees? Read that Pat had another record year in housing sales. Must be true for I read it in Neal'S INTERNAL PUBLICATION: The Bradenton Herald. Merry Christmas Carlos & Pat. I haven't given up hope you guys will have a revelation and get in the Christmas spirit of giving and not just taking, taking, taking........

Article Headline: County Water Rates are Going Up ... Twice


Comment:
With more development approval, the lack of due diligence of the Board on many County issues, and the real elephant in the County, phosphate strip mining which draws 69 million gallons of water a day, will continue to increase the demand for water.

If the Commission refuses to stop phosphate mining then they can surely halt future development. 2016 is coming. Time to watch Board actions. We already saw the blow dealt to the citizens of Lakewood Ranch by their at-large and district commissioners.

Article Headline: Guest Op/Ed: Dr. Cantrell has Earned our Support on School Board


Comment:
Dr. Conrad, while I respect your opinion and will heed the good advice you've given, it is hard to overlook Dr. Cantrell's association with Mr. McGonegal and Mr. Bowen. These men are largely responsible for the near criminal mess the district was left in after Mr. McGonegal's departure. I would ask that you also give same sage advice to Dr. Cantrell concerning her support of the current superintendent and to continue to investigate the causes of the financial collapse of the district.

Article Headline: Lakewood Ranch Residents Get Dose of Development Disinterest


Comment:
A clarification is needed. A county has to be a charter county, which Manatee County IS NOT so is unable to recall a county commission. My source is no less than the knowledgeable Katie Pierola, former mayor of Bradenton Beach.

Article Headline: Summer Staycation #1: Linger Lodge Campground and Resort


Comment:
One of my clients recommended this restaurant, I live literally in the same neighborhood. She couldn't believe I hadn't been here yet. So, my husband took me for my birthday dinner for something different. We also took our 9yr old daughter and her friend. WE LOVED IT!!! It was definitely a different menu, and I was determined to try something on the menu that screamed linger lodge. We ALL tried the fried gator and fried green tomatoes! Even the kids tried and loved them. We all also enjoyed the atmosphere of the restraint, tons of animals and wildlife to look at, awesome for kids!!! We got the kids a souvenir gator tooth necklace, my husband also got one as a reminder of the amazing, fun time we all had here...and we live rite up the road! We are going to rent one of their cabins for my daughter and her friend for her upcoming birthday. And can't wait to try the catfish and gumbo while we're there. Thank you linger lodge for an amazing SOUTHERN Florida dinner and experience, I'm from Boston originally, so this was totally outside the box for me! My husband on the other hand grew up in the south and grew up hunting and eating slot of what they offer on the menu... soooooo glad we came and tried something different!!!!!

Article Headline: Beruff Suing County Over Comp Plan Text Amendment Denial


Comment:
Please help your fellow humans ? We need anyone familiar with the harmful activities of Carlos Beruff to Speak at a public hearing that will allow him to build on a toxic dump? Amazing as this sounds, he used his influence (he is on the governing board of SWFTMD) to get a letter from SW FDEP that he can put 205 homes on a Sarasota County, unlined landfill. Michael Moran was on the Planning Commission when he requested same, Michael Moran was the first to move that he be allowed to build ? This puts many existing home owners in risk of toxins being sent into local lakes and streams and groundwater.

If anyone of your readers can take the time to speak at the Nov 18, 2014 hearing at 1:30 PM 1660 Ringling Blvd in Sarasota, Florida PLEASE HELP tell them what he has done in the past.

We need someone from Bradenton or Anna Maria to tell the Sarasota County Commission (that thinks he walks on water), to let them know his true colors, PLEASE HELP US !

www.foxfirewest.com Please post this in some form so we can get at least one person to speak at the hearing?. Lets cover Sarasota and get people out to this Beruff Popularity Contest

Article Headline: Letter to the Editor: Can't Veto Impeachment


Comment:
There is no reason in the world to impeach President Obama. He has been a GREAT president and brought this country out of the worst of times by bringing jobs back , stabilizing the economy, lowering gas prices, passing the Lillie Leadbetter Act, continues to secure our borders and deport more illegal immigrants than any other president, and he has given us a Health Care plan that allows the poor to get health insurance without spending money they do not have!
Medical premiums have dropped, the doughnut hole is sealing , students can stay on their parents plans until they are 26 and I could go on and on in spite of the brain washing by the Republican Party.

Article Headline: Kicking the Post Election Blues


Comment:
I just want to pick out one paragraph of your editorial and that is the comment of teaching civics and how only 15%of young people bothered to vote,which is criminal.We do need to teach civics and get young people involved in government and how important it is not only to vote but to study the issues and this excuse of its too difficult to vote is BS as all of us know(Dem. or Rep.) that have been voting for 20,30,40,50 years and how important our vote is.But it is sad because even I get frustrated by the lies and money that is spread around.

Article Headline: Lakewood Ranch Residents Find No Refuge in BOCC


Comment:
I attended yesterday's Land Use Meeting and met some citizens of Lakewood Ranch who came with the hope of maintaining uniform height restrictions in their community and protecting a rookery filled with hundreds of Florida birds. What their Commissioner
Baugh and newly elected Whitmore did was just what they do to all citizens who come before them..vote in favor of the developer.

We are not backing off and will continue to fight to elect commissioners who have the intelligence and qualities and integrity of Terri Wonder, who will listen to citizens. It is my hope that many citizens of Lakewood Ranch will join us in all future efforts.
