These initials regard the Manatee County School Board District 4 race and stand for: Anybody-But-Brunner. Why you might ask?

As I sit down to write this, it’s with mixed feelings but with the compelling commitment that “we the people” need to act and vote on the upcoming school board election with the best information available to us. Our school district and the board that leads it are in the midst of a remarkable turnaround, all of which could change disastrously with the outcome at the polls.

I am pleased to announce that the State of Florida has officially proclaimed August as both Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month and Light It Up Green Month. Florida joins Pennsylvania and Colorado this year in recognizing all 9 muscular dystrophies and 43 neuro-muscular disorders with their own month. This has never been accomplished before, and I look forward to pushing it to go National in 2015. I also look forward to bigger things as well in 2015. But for now we shall celebrate this wonderful event for all it's worth!

I have read several articles concerning the plane crash on Venice beach that took the lives of a father and his daughter. I would like to voice my opinion as to why this should be considered a criminal act, with the district attorney bringing appropriate charges against the pilot, who can then be evaluated by a judge and jury in our criminal system.

I don't like political hyperbole and try to avoid it in my pieces. But when a friend asked me this week about a claim that the recent CIA/Senate spying scandal was “worse than Watergate,” I had one simple and honest answer: "Yes." Here's why ...

Last Tuesday was a sad day for Manatee County citizens and the First Amendment. The bullying of two Manatee County citizens in a recent BOCC meeting by Chairman Larry Bustle is unacceptable. His gestapo style attempt to ban two citizens for their public comments protected by the Constitution is unconscionable, especially by a decorated Air Force pilot who took an oath to uphold the Constitution not only in the military but in his civil responsibility as chairman of the board of county commissioners.

At the July 30 budget meeting, commissioners and staff struggled to find funds that would make the county whole again. The emotional expressions of unsettled anguish that poured into the camera and audience had more drama than can be found in any downtown theater. And it was all at the expense of the public, because there is something our officials won't tell you.

This week, Manatee County Commission Chair Larry Bustle finally blew a gasket in dealing with the dissenting opinions of taxpayers who sign up to give up to three minutes of public comment during the board's twice monthly meeting. Bustle's disdain for public comment has always been obvious and his reactions have often been troubling, but at Tuesday's meeting, he jumped clear off the edge and into the abyss.

Mary Cantrell’s campaign seems to be nothing more than an act of vengeance for being fired from her job at MTI. Mary’s shocking behavior at a recent event was that of a child having a temper tantrum. It was necessary for her husband to remove her from the podium and lead her out. Observing her attitude and behavior, revenge seems to be the only motivation for her bid for the school board.
