I was saddened by the news last week that a young Lakeland student died from apparent bacterial meningitis. This story breaks my heart because I know this tragedy could have happened to my family. I’m writing to share my story and encourage all parents to protect their children from this preventable disease.

I must admit I was on the fence regarding who should be the next mayor of Holmes Beach - the Commissioner who has been there several years or the new guy with the excellent background. Then I met Bob Johnson in person, and after some thoughtful conversation, it became obvious that he has the operational experience - business and military - and the leadership skills to effectively manage the Mayor's office, which has a much different responsibility from the legislative Commission.

There is a new kind of Slavery coming to the South. It is called Apathy and Indifference. As terrible as the old form of Slavery was, the new Slavery is even more insidious then the old form of Slavery. In this form of Slavery it is “You” that puts yourself on the Auction Block. This form of Slavery is one where “You” give up your Rights and your Freedom by giving up your Vote. You sell yourselves and our families into the slavery of Corplutocracy one vote at a time.

This week, a majority of Manatee County Commissioners balked at the idea of asking the state legislature to accept Medicaid expansion in an effort to provide relief to the county, as it runs out of funding in its indigent care corpus. This says that commissioners either don't understand the issue, or are less concerned with caring for the indigent than padding the bottom line of private-sector hospitals.

The recently-approved Manatee County budget includes over $33 million dollars to build the controversial bridge over the Braden River. The alignment, known as the 44 Avenue extension, will form a continuous route from Anna Maria Island to Lakewood Ranch. The road is planned for four lanes, but there are no assurances that it couldn’t become six, similar to SR 70, at some point in the future.

Have you seen all the large, expensive signs on major roadways? They are funded by those with deep pockets, developers and others, who expect payback for funding election campaigns. In contrast, Terri Wonder who is opposing Carol Whitmore for the Commissioner at Large seat in Manatee County is running a grassroots campaign, reaching out to individual citizens and neighborhoods.

Who is responsible for the realization of Grassy Point Preserve? Check the dates of Holmes Beach administrations. It's pretty clear who is responsible and who is not. Shame on anyone who takes credit when credit is not due.

This past week Floridians (along with all US citizens) have been threatened with Ebola outbreaks, news of a sputtering economy, and an extremely volatile stock market. The question must be confronted: “In uncertain times like these, do we really want to mandate $18 billion to buy more conservation land for the next 20 years?”

Their last debate was most noted for a seven-minute delay while the candidates squabbled over whether a fan constituted a prohibited electronic device on stage. The contest did not seem to affect the deadlocked polling of voters who remain essentially split on whether to reelect Florida Governor Rick Scott or replace him with his predecessor, Republican-turned Independent-turned Democrat Charlie Crist. Tonight, the two candidates will take to the CNN stage for one last chance to differentiate themselves to undecided voters.

This week a New York Times investigation revealed that U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq were exposed to chemical weapons, the existence of which had been deliberately suppressed – even from the doctors who would treat them.
