Republicans were expected to do well on Tuesday, but any way you look at it, they surpassed even the most optimistic expectations. On a local, state and national level, Tuesday night belonged to the GOP.

Tuesday's local elections focused primarily on two races. All three of our state legislators got walkovers and our local Congressional contest was over before it started. Aside from a few of our city races that all went according to conventional wisdom, the collective interest was focused on races for the county commission and school board, where Carol Whitmore routed Terri Wonder and Mary Cantrell beat Julie Aranibar.

Libertarian candidate for Governor of Florida Adrian Wyllie visited the historic fishing village of Cortez last week. The underdog candidate found a receptive audience who knew a thing or two about fighting from the fringes.

Tuesday is the big day. Florida will choose its governor with the seeming inevitability of a razor thin margin that could come down to recounts and dueling attorneys, but we could see similar drama on the local front as well.

The grand finale of the Whitmore-Wonder debates concluded Tuesday night at the Palma Sola Botanical Gardens during the Annual Conservation-Environmental Summit, co-sponsored by Manatee Fish and Game Association, Inc. and Manatee/Sarasota Sierra Club. There were few additions to the candidates' doctrines. But what stood out to many in the audience of the nearly 70 attendees was Whitmore's fear of litigation and her articulate talent to delude fact.

There are important races all over the ballot that will impact your quality of life, especially on the local level. If you care about the future of your community, you need to get out and participate.

At the debate between Carol Whitmore and Terri Wonder last night I heard elaborate excuses for her voting record from Whitmore and a well-researched, cogent platform from Wonder.

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.
