I'd like to thank Sheriff Steube for speaking out against marijuana at the recent Supper with the Sheriff event. The pro pot lobby doesn’t like our Sheriff educating our community. They don’t want voters to know that the constitutional amendment is not about sick family members. The pro pot campaign is about legalization, period.

I grew up as the only little boy in a house of many girls. My father and I were always heavily outnumbered, sharing a three-bedroom duplex with as many as six females. That's a lot of estrogen in very tight corners, and I'd be lying if I said there weren't days when I fantasized about having been born an only child. But those little girls grew up to be some of the finest mothers I've had the pleasure to know. It's an honor to bid them a Happy Mother's Day.

At least one Manatee County Commissioner came to Tuesday's meeting fully prepared to stroke a $200,000 taxpayer check to fund a somewhat incoherent plan to “study” indigent health care options, now that the county has basically sat on its hands for the past year since it tried to sneak through a poorly-conceived health care sales tax in an effort to maintain an inefficient status quo. Fortunately, at least a majority of the rest had the sense not to follow Commissioner Bustle down that road.

With real wages adjusted for inflation flat since the early 1970's, there's long been talk of America's shrinking middle-class. Still, it came as a shock to most when a New York Times analysis recently showed that America – long the preeminent middle-class society in the world – had actually fallen behind our neighbors to the north. To understand why upward mobility is becoming less achievable in the land of the free, we need to look beyond the politics and ideologies to the realities of the 21st century.

For the past week, there's been a considerable uproar over the mere suggestion that the Manatee County School District would even consider selling off excess property adjacent to Miller Elementary School. I'm for keeping every bit of green space in Manatee County green, but that doesn't mean the school district still can't unload the property.

In the wake of the housing bust, Wall Street funds set their sights on a new target – rentals. The foreclosure mess that resulted from their toxic securitization of bad mortgages had created a massive new inventory of cheap, vacant homes. If big funds could scoop them up at pennies on the dollar by the hundreds of thousands and collect a sizeable monthly payment on each, they might be able to create a model nearly as juicy as the mortgage fiasco. The only problem is, Wall Street’s boon may once again add to Main Street’s demise.

At the last Board Meeting during public comments, several community members shared their concerns on the possible sale of surplus property owned by the school district adjacent to Miller Elementary. Superintendent Mills has set a public meeting for Tuesday night to address questions and concerns regarding this property. We are looking forward to working with our community to support the needs of the district and community. Last summer, the Board approved a fiscal recovery plan that included the sale of property that would enable the district to achieve fiscal stability.

It never ceases to amaze me how so many so-called capitalists love supposedly socialist initiatives, as long as they are the ones receiving the benefits. They cheer free markets out one side of their mouth, while asking for more subsidy, tax favoritism or rules to prohibit competition out of the other. We've seen this sort of posturing most vividly in markets like oil and gas, utilities and defense contracting. But this year, there's another industry writing checks and asking for favors in order to maintain their monopolistic advantages – beer.

The Manatee County Democratic Party settled into its new facilities earlier this year. Unfortunately, on Monday, April 14, someone "egged" the front windows of the office. That, of course, sounds like something that a badly-brought-up 10 year old might do. One can only hope that an intelligent adult, regardless of his or her political views, would not stoop to such a juvenile and destructive action. I notified  the local Police Department, and I will bring charges in the event that the responsible individuals are apprehended.

With one department under Manatee County Public Safety having decided to unionize, another having taken steps in that direction and two more discussing the possibility, citizens might want to start taking a closer look at how these essential services are being managed and why there are so many disgruntled employees within their ranks. When they do, they will likely find a lot of head-scratching red flags, along with what might be a silver-bullet solution.
