Unkempt mobile homes a danger
As a homeowner in Tangerine Estates, I'm writing in concern of the abandoned and dilapidated mobile homes. The majority of these mobile homes were condemned in Pasco County and moved to this area.
The abandoned and dilapidated mobile homes create unreasonable danger and nuisance for neighbors and a haven for rodents, public health and environmental problems, pose fire and safety hazards and should be properly disposed of in the county landfill.
As homeowners in Tangerine Estates, our sole purpose is to create a better quality of life for our children and would like to keep Tangerine Estates beautiful.
Also, in the past years the crime has gone up significantly in Tangerine Estates. The Sheriff's Office patrols the area, but to no avail. Please help us clean up this area so that our children can play safely outside.

Homeless pets deserve our help | Aug. 15, letter
Our animals need love and care
Letter writer Joanne Schoch is right about being responsible for the pets you own. Adopt from a shelter. Most shelters spay and neuter their animals before adopting them out.
The trouble is there are too many animals abandoned and not enough shelters to hold them. So they end up on the streets or at Hernando County Animal Services, which is not a no-kill shelter.
If you really love animals, take care of your pet. Do not just drop it off somewhere. The dog I adopted 10 months ago was just dumped off in Brookridge. Imagine just being turned loose after being someone's pet for 11 years.
Be kind to your pets. They love you and don't ask for much. Just food, shelter and love and care.
