Bush reform policies could save Marlins

February 9, 2013

Reports are surfacing that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush attempted to purchase the Miami Marlins from Jeff Loria.
I for one feel like this change could have made a real difference in Miami and the game of baseball.
Gov. Bush, a potential 2016 presidential candidate knows from his own brother’s experience that the path to the White House goes directly through a disheveled Major League Baseball team.
If Gov. Bush could have taken over this shambled franchise, he could have incorporated many of his education reform policies to bring the team up higher than its current F-Grade.

Summerall: Being driven insane

February 9, 2013

Several months ago I shared the angst of getting twin 15 year olds their learners permits. One of my life’s great regrets..They are sneaking up on their 16th birthday in March. 16 is the magic age for an intermediate license. It was not supposed to come this soon. Kenny keeps telling them they are only ten but I don’t think they are buying it.
Now, they want to drive. In town. On the streets where other cars are. This is not good. I abdicated teaching them to drive to Kenny. They scare me.

Honoring a great local activist

February 9, 2013

God knows what every community needs, and He knows exactly who to put there.
And over 60 years ago God brought local pioneer Louis Odneal to Clay County, but he didn’t know at the time that he would be an inspiration to hundreds and hundreds of people living here.
You see, the things that Odneal went through growing up during the Civil Rights Era prompted him to take a stance for fairness and equal rights for all African Americans and for all hard-working individuals.
