    The myth
    The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, but the myth,

    Dear Supporters of Dade Battlefield Historic State Park:
    Dade Battlefield Society would like to thank those individuals who recently made our first Pioneer Day Camp a huge success. Without the assistance of local individuals, businesses and incredible volunteers, we never would have been able to achieve so many goals. We were able to award eleven scholarships to day campers thanks to Judge Mike Johnson, Kry Insurance, Brad Bradley, Caren Curtiss, and Richard Sutherland.

    We also grieve
    For three years the Tri County(Lake, Marion and Sumter) Interfaith Alliance has been meeting monthly to educate the public on the many religions in this country. The goal is to understand and accept that there are many faiths in this country and to respect others’ faiths, so that we can reduce prejudice, fear and ignorance, thereby learning to live together in harmony.
    It is with sadness that we learn that a faithful people have been attacked in Wisconsin, and we grieve with those who have lost family members.

    NCAA Piling On Penn State
    I am upset about the child abuse committed by Sandusky and the cover up by Paterno, Curley, Schulz and Spanier. The lives of many young children have been adversely impacted by these men.
    And that is my point. The five individuals were involved with these tragic events, not the assistant football coaches, not the football players, not the faculty and not the student body.

    It’s election time again, and if you are like most Americans you have a hard time sorting the facts from hype when it comes to making smart choices at the polls.

    Praise for sheriff’s office
    The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office is simply the best in the great state of Florida!
    I have lived in Miami Dade County, Lee County., I currently live in Citrus County and the consistency in law enforcement I have seen over the last six years in Sumter County saved my life, as did the men and women of the SCSO.

    Want change?
    Achieving meaningful change in Washington, D.C. requires many more thinking citizens to vote in the primaries. In gerrymandered states Texas (Texas is typical of the other states), the November general election results are largely determined by the results in the primaries months earlier. This is especially true of congresspersons.

    Contact your
    representatives
    This year the candidates for president will spend hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising. One telling us of the heroic things he has done and the other telling us of the miraculous things he will do. Almost everything President Obama takes credit for had to be passed by Congress. The promises made by candidate Romney must be made law by Congress to be fulfilled. The president can only veto a law; he cannot pass one.
