    Open Letter to:  Citizens / Residents of Florida
    Within the past years (50+), water management has evolved substantially from the original outline/findings that were submitted to the Florida Legislature.
    The original idea to capture rainfall to replenish the aquifer system seemed far-fetched to great numbers of residents, namely large land owners, real estate brokers and bankers.
    Reasons:
    1.  The eventual plan was property tax to support all projects at the same scale regardless of amount of water used.

    Nice job Times
    As a long time subscriber to electronic editions of local and national newspapers, Sumter County Times should take particular pride in the quality of their digital product.
    For a small newspaper - this competes evenly with the big boys.
    I have a large monitor - 27” - and this paper pops on my screen. Every aspect is remarkably clear - especially the photos.
    Kudos to those involved in publishing such a great product.

    Special thanks

    Feelings about  Confederate flag
    I have some very strong feelings in regard to the Confederate flag. They do not concern slavery. To me, it means brotherhood. To my grandfather, it meant home.
    Lincoln was right, we had to be united. If he had lived, the South would have faired better. The American flag, which I revered, devastated the Indian nation who owned this land. We are the aggressors.
    Stand up, take the blame if you want the South to take the blame for slavery.
    Let us have our flag for brotherhood. You are not excluded.

    A little tale
    Once upon a time in a little old village there lived a little old widow in a little old house. For many years she lived on her pension. The little money that she made by selling needlepoint she gave to her neighbors so that they could buy their children school supplies. She also made food for their families. She had many friends who helped her with this endeavor. Everyone would come to her house and do needlepoint together and they would leave coins in a jar kept by the front door for her charity work. They were happy for many years.
