Major Neil Franklin isn't your typical medical marijuana advocate. Franklin was a police officer for 34 years before becoming executive director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, a group of cops, judges, prosecutors and other law enforcement officials opposed to the war on drugs because of their personal experience in waging it. Franklin lets us know why he thinks Amendment 2 is right for Florida.

Short of astronomers actually locating the center of the universe, it seems most Manatee County Commissioners will continue to believe that it lies at the center of their dais. There may have been a time when citizens were willing to give commissioners the benefit of the doubt when it came to their duty of protecting the people and property of Manatee County, but many citizens now feel commissioners are ineffective and far too comfortable living in their delusion of adequacy.

Area resident Charles Senf has been a prolific writer of letters to the editor to various local papers for many years. Recently, he took aim at an email that he received from the Vern Buchanan for Congress campaign.

On Thursday, Russia and China vetoed a UN resolution to refer the Syrian conflict to the International Criminal Court for investigation of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed during the country's civil war, which has now been raging for three years. This is just the latest in an ongoing deadlock among world powers who all have a role in failing to meaningfully address the crisis.

The Manatee County School District has been a lightning rod for criticism and controversy for the better part of the last four years. Despite an impressive economic turnaround under its new leadership, the bad news keeps coming, as more past misdeeds come to light. However, despite bump after bump in the rocky road, the district will soon have its first budget with a positive balance in the last four years, and there are still plenty of good things happening in our schools. Under the circumstances, that seems like a pretty good record.

I understand the political reasons to keep drumming up the Benghazi incident – or even the commercial reasons for certain news as entertainment outlets who pander to the same political target audience. It seems pretty clear that Obamacare will not be the red herring this November that GOP strategists had hoped, and Benghazi is a twofer in that it also takes aim at the presumed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate. What I don't understand is the straight face worn by regular Joes and Janes who claim to be so incensed by the scandal, even though they shrugged off things that occurred up to and after the other 9/11, incidents far worse than even what is being claimed to have happened two years ago in Libya.

As a direct descendant of Josiah Gates, I am highly offended by the actions of Bradenton Mayor Wayne Poston regarding the lands that were donated to Reflections of Manatee for historic preservation. If the title was in my name, they would really have a fight on their hands.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has a big problem in Manatee County. It is responsible for a former phosphate mining operation that went bankrupt and left behind a toxic mess that only gets worse by the day. One effort to contain the hazard already proved disastrous. Now, they would like to build a Class I injection well and pump the problem deep into the Floridan aquifer, a process that it claims is safe and will not impact drinking or agricultural irrigation water. Manatee County Utilities is on board and has proposed that the county spend more than $20 million to build the well. For obvious reasons, many people in Manatee County are about as comfortable with this idea as elective brain surgery. I can't say I blame them.

Reflections of Manatee, Inc. is a not-for-profit focused on preserving a very historical area along the Manatee River. Their dedication to this is admirable. Scraping together resources, they have done what most people thought to be impossible: preserve a piece of old Florida and what could be the most historically significant piece of Bradenton's beginnings. However, now they have to fight their own city, which is suing them to undo the transfer of property it approved under the oversight of Mayor Bill Evers. The suit, initiated by current Mayor Wayne Poston, seems a senseless waste of city resources and precious tax dollars.
