After covering local rallies and reporting on OWS and other major protest events throughout the U.S., I thought I had a very good grasp on what was occurring on the ground in Zuccotti Park. But as the magnitude of the movement began to turn it into an historic event, I knew I had to see what was happening first hand. So I traveled to Manhattan last weekend and spent a day speaking with the protestors, and I was surprised at what I found.

When Carlos Beruff gave assurances to the public that he would follow the county's rules while developing the land adjacent to Sarasota Bay and its fragile environment, citizens hoped to believe the developer, who also served on the body that regulates state environmental rules. However, in gaining his first approval from the BOCC last week, Beruff and partner Larry Lieberman instead requested special approvals that exempted them from the rules other developers have to follow. To almost no one's surprise, they got them.

I make a lot of noise about buying local, especially around Christmas. I try to practice what I preach, and each year I patron local businesses over chains whenever possible. This year, however, I wanted to see if I could aim a little higher and secure my son's main Christmas gift in a completely locally-owned and produced fashion. The result was his favorite present of all time.

If you want to be a serious student of conservation, you'd better have a strong stomach. Every subject you take on is likely to keep you up at night – declining fossil fuels, precious metals and water reserves, climate change, food insecurity, etc. That's why it's so incredibly refreshing to visit the Historic Green Village on Anna Maria Island, where one ambitious couple have created a living, breathing model of the infrastructure required to operate our society in a way that will be sustainable for generations to come, while demonstrating to skeptics the immense potential of existing technology.

The largest taxing district ever created in Manatee County has been approved. The goals of the Southwest County Improvement District (SWTIF) are voluminous, but whether they'd like to admit it or not, county commissioners had the power to achieve any of them without creating a new taxing district.

Dateline London: Over 1,200 arrested; 16,000 police, and the violence just moves to other towns. Children as young as 9 years old are being arrested by police. Prime Minister David Cameron says, "If you're old enough to throw a rock through a window, you're old enough to go to jail." Are the London riots a harbinger of things to come?

At Tuesday's BOCC meeting, Manatee County Administrator Ed Hunzeker delivered the county's 2013 Annual Report. But what was to be an assessment of what condition our condition is in, turned out to be a ballyhoo of accolades saluting fellow officials for a job well done. That praise often seemed to be a highly controversial notion.

Seeing as we're about to enter another nasty Florida electoral season, I figured mid July would be a good time to get out on the road and remind myself of all the things I love about this state that I've called home for the last 13 years, so that I might recall them as answers when I inevitably ask myself what the hell I'm doing here amid the absurdity that is sure to precede November 4.

Surely, every refuge has its price. But don't tell that to the Manatee County Commission. They believe the county's snowballing development is a blessing, that their pedal to the metal concrete expansion is going to take the county to never-ending prosperity. But there's trouble here in paradise, as the idolized development commissioners so expeditiously embrace seems certain to take the county to its knees.

The big story this week was Sony Pictures' decision to pull the release of a mid-budget farce comedy after cyber-attacks that may have involved the North Korean government. This, despite the fact that an historic and truly monumental foreign policy achievement was realized, while the utility industry won the right to further screw Florida consumers. It was the kind of week that made you embarrassed to work in the media.
