Hamilton bailing is good for county
Based on what I know about the past actions, decisions and performance, poor ethics, and lack of passion to call Hernando County home, I also would vote to give our county administrator his walking papers if I were a commissioner.
My gut instinct tells me Administrator David Hamilton knows this dredge project will not come to fruition by the deadline and Hernando has a good possibility of losing millions of dollars—and he is going to bail so it doesn't happen on his watch, though on our tax dollars.
His management/ leadership style has deteriorated the moral among the rank and file and the work environment has become very depressed with an instilled feeling of complete distrust.
I believe we are forced to make a change that is long over do for the good of the place I call home — Hernando County.

If this is the tea party, no thanks
My husband and I would like to become involved in the tea party movement. We found a monthly meeting scheduled at a local restaurant in Brooksville at 7 p.m. Oct. 27.
We arrived and ate at the restaurant prior to 7. We noticed people arriving and bringing food into a separate room. We entered the room at 6:45. People were eating and bringing in food. Not one person said "hello'' or welcomed us. The only words spoken to us were "Don't sit there. Those seats are already taken.'' We didn't feel welcomed as potential new members so we left.
Apparently this very unfriendly group doesn't need or want new members. It is just a clique.

Red light cameras for safety is big lie
I've been a truck driver for nearly 30 years. I've seen all kinds of money-fleecing gimmicks in the various states, counties and municipalities. We have a little triad of pocket-picking politicos who want to balance the city of Brooksville's books upon the backs of the elderly, whose reaction times have slowed, upon the backs of newcomers and tourists who are unaware of the nefarious motives of the local government and upon the backs of truck drivers who have heavy weights to stop and start at red lights.
The three banditos are specifically banking on the truckers not being able to get their loaded rigs rolling in time to get under the light at Cobb Road.
The Brooksville City Council says the red light cameras are being installed in the interest of safety. This is an outrageous lie. Council members Kevin Hohn, Lara Bradburn and Joe Johnston are a trio of hypocrites and shysters who will prey upon anyone or anything in order to balance their books or further their ambitions and interests.
I'm counting on Rep. Rob Schenck and Sen. Mike Fasano to expunge this plague.
