With the very high percentage of elderly living here, I am at a loss to find a telephone number orRead More location of services specific to the elderly in Pinellas County! Where is Adult Protect6ive Services? Where is Elder Care? I spent the better part of two hours yesterday trying to find any services for these folks! Where is the Consumer Protection Agency? Why, when I call any 'official' number to locate anything, I get a menu, am put on hold for too long a time, shuffled from number to number or person to person or nothing intelligent at all. I attended a senior expo at the Coliseum the other day and was surprised to find venders only and NO representatives from ANY agency, county, city, state, nor federal! Where were they? Can anyone explain any of this? I am at 388.1612 here in Pinellas.

As a recent graduate of PCU, I highly recommend you take the 10 weeks and fly with all the newRead More knowledge and understanding you come away with. So many fascinating students you make the journey with, and the facilitators are top notch. And a bargain at the price.

What a ridiculous one-sided story. How about a follow-up about the number of lives that guns haveRead More SAVED?

Yes, you are SO RIGHT, Joe and Todd! This is just a bunch of political propaganda. Of course, manyRead More of these stories point out the real and UNSTATED issue of mental illness. But, let's not talk about THAT because it's politically incorrect.

It is not about gun control ,it is about total control.One example - Obama Care.

The wildlife trade is horrific throught the world but there are scumbags who feel they can get awayRead More with it. I hope FWC does release their names and they are posted for everyone to see.

Bob Evans, if u want to fix things begin with urself.. and go from there... whenever anyone wants toRead More attack a situation they use that phrase for everyone. its their grammar or their spelling, not the content and choices to put it out there.. and anyone that would say anything with such abusive words that you used to address another.. well is there anything that can change or retrain that? but not interested in your way of attacking another is the way your speak to the world at large.. its to messy. thanks CJ.

You are welcome, Star. I don't care if we agree or not. I enjoy hearing ''everyone's'' comment fromRead More ''all'' walks of life and education and/or writing/grammar skills. many college graduates would be embarrassed at their spelling and grammar without ''spell-check''. I like hones forums that let us see peole as they really are. You keep on keeping on. What is important is helping any community is the citizens and neighbors communicating with each other and not trying to diss other people over petty things like grammar and spelling. this is not a school classroom. All comments are welcome. If a person does not like someone...then go ahead and give them hell about it...but don't get lame and resort to being the spelling police. And if you ''do'' stoop to that low ground..then certainly don't do it as poorly as Bob did. We sure shut ''Bob Evans'' up...I don't like his restaurant anyway...lol.
CJ October 25, 2013 at 11:32 am
I did not proof read on purpose, and I now see my comment would surely get an F grade inRead More school...just like Bob's would. Who does he think he is fooling? I would have a high F...he would be a ''very'' low F. Get off the porch, Bob...

What happened to the guys boat? Was it left to drift or something else?

There are people trying to get marijuana legalized in Florida, led by the lawyers Morgan &Read More Morgan. If you are against smoking then your are against smoking marijuana for any purpose. If you are against the use of drugs like heroin or crack cocaine then you are against the legalization of marijuana for any purpose. Drugs are drugs and smoking is smoking.

Richard. Good morning to you to. Your stream of logic has forced me to reconsider my morning. AreRead More you saying guess I need to report myself to HR for popping some advil(drugs), and what about that bacon smoke? Raw bacon has some inherent risks as well, what would you recommend? I'm spotting some potential fallacies .....

This hilarity isn't about pot, it's about animals with weapons who have the mental capacity and selfRead More control of small children...the argument could have been over a basketball, or a girl, or a litany of other ridiculous reasons; it's the behavior and stunted decision making and coping skills that are the real issues here. Unfortunately, as we all know, we can't legislate stupidity or emotional intelligence, we can only punish offenders after the fact...
