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.

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. Why? Because they weren't the mythical weapons of mass destruction the Bush White House desperately wanted to find, but rather improperly disposed of remnants of a much earlier stockpile that the U.S. had actually helped Saddam Hussein to build.

I have been a resident since 1953. I am a business owner, and have raised three children on this beautiful island. Just as I do every election, I have been reading your articles about the County Commissioners in your newspaper. I would like to comment about the District 6 race and make a statement about the outstanding job Carol Whitmore has done for the county, the small businesses, the families and environmental protection she has put in place.

“Optics” is the new catch phrase in the media. Unintentional visual messages are as important as written or spoken content. “Optics” can easily compromise any intended message.
