Fasano needs to 'move up' or leave | July 26, letter
Keep politicians who serve well
In 1825, John Quincy Adams was elected president of the United States. In 1830, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
To serve the people in any capacity is not a question of up or down. The right person in any office can continue to make a difference for the good of all. There are far too many career politicians who do not. Let us at least keep the ones who do.

Mariano cheers for private interests | July 22, letter
Private projects draw people here
Who else is going to put money up to enhance Pasco County besides private interests? Is the government going to build a marina or town homes?
The way this 30-year resident sees it, Pasco needs projects like Sunwest Harbourtowne. To grow and draw people here, that's all we have.

Help our group save animals
Wake up Pasco County taxpayers. Something is fishy with Pasco County Animal Services.
I (and a great group of people) have been working day and night trying to save the dogs and cats that enter their high-kill facility. Our group communicated to each other with Facebook posts. My group tried to work with the shelter. Now, someone deletes all of the messages that almost 300 volunteers read. Those messages were important to saving those animals.
The Pasco County Animal Services shelter is located in Land O'Lakes, which is not so convenient for most of Pasco. This shelter takes all of the strays and most of the animals surrendered by owners. Our volunteers visited the shelter almost daily and could answer many questions for the community. In addition to finding homes for unwanted animals, we re-united many lost animals with owners. Those animals would have been put to sleep or sent to rescue, otherwise. Our group helped to change their numbers around, so many animals were saved.
Most of the local 501c3 rescues are full and overwhelmed with animals. Pasco needs help saving its animals. As taxpayers, the public has control of what goes on at the shelter. Please, be the voice for those that can not speak. Contact county commissioners by email, mail and phone and let them know you are not happy with the policies that they appear to have adopted.
