    Scouts seek helpers
    During Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s (GSWCF) peak registration time—which is happening now (back-to-school)—it has had as many as 1,300 girls on a waiting list due to a shortage of volunteers. In an effort to serve as many girls as possible, GSWCF is asking local adults to step forward as volunteers to serve as positive role models for girls.

    All it again
    The democrats are at it again; making up lies to cover up their poor performance, and trying to pass the blame onto respectable republicans. The 2013-2014 house is not responsible for congress’ poor performance, rather the democratic senate leader, Harry Reid, carries that responsibility.
    The house has sent more than 200 bills to the senate, and Harry Reid refused to bring the bills to the senate floor where they can be discussed and voted on.
