Earlier this month, I visited the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France as part of a national security mission to Europe and the Middle East. The memorial honors the American soldiers who gave their lives in the European theatre during World War II.

The current Manatee County School Board has not done much to earn trust within this community. This could prove pivotal as the board and district prepare to ask taxpayers for more than half a billion dollars in additional debt, taxes and fees in a planned 2016 referendum. Selecting a replacement Superintendent is without question the most important action it will take in the interim and presents an opportunity to inspire much-needed confidence in its stewardship of our education system.

Former Local ARTery reporter Ringo Khan returns from his prolonged sabbatical for another installment of Letters From The Wasteland.

As lawmakers get ready to head into a special session on the budget, all eyes are on the issue of health care. I refer to health care and not Medicaid expansion as most media outlets call it, because that option isn't being meaningfully considered. Instead, Florida Republicans continue to bicker over how to solve a very real problem with everything other than the most obvious solution, par for the course here in the land of the weird.

This week is National Emergency Medical Services Week and Manatee County will honor its employees at its annual awards ceremony. However, taxpayers would be much better served if the county better recognized what it called its “true heroes” with improved working conditions and adequate financial compensation.

The Manatee School Board will spend up to $35,000 plus expenses to look for another superintendent for our schools. This may take up to another six months or longer at a time when we can no longer spare the expense of another futile vetting process.

There is a very vocal group of people who would have you believe that Mr. Mills is the cause of all the Manatee School District’s problems. They seem more concerned with regaining influence over personnel decisions and control of the district’s purse strings than anything related to education.

On Tuesday, the Manatee County School Board quickly voted to accelerate Superintendent Rick Mills' retirement effective immediately, while installing Deputy Superintendent of Operations Don Hall to serve in the interim role. What the board does next will be subject of much debate I'm sure, but the best choice for Manatee County students and the taxpayers who support them is already clear.

On Tuesday, the Manatee County Commission received a presentation from a group of county employees who identified themselves as millennials. They voiced a familiar complaint: there's not enough affordable housing for young professionals in Manatee, nor is there enough of the kind of mixed-use property they want to occupy. Commissioners applauded their efforts, though it also seemed clear that they were largely in vain.
