Every day, I see signs along U.S. 19.
They are the same old signs advertising for junk cars, sod installations, reroofing, jazzercise, etc.
So, I called code enforcement and they told me that it is illegal to place signs on county property and that they pull them out. That doesn't happen too often.
Wouldn't it be cost effective and create less labor on our workers if someone from code enforcement called these people on the phone and told them they are breaking the law. It's mostly the same people and I'm sure word would get out to other lawbreakers to stop messing up our roads.
It's bad enough that U.S. 19 is not the sweetest road in the county, but these signs do not help at all.

A recent article explained how a person or persons broke into a fenced enclosure at Tom Varn Park in Brooksville and made off with a utility vehicle.
The article stated the crook or crooks simply removed the electric meter from an adjacent building to disable the alarm. What are you going to do next? Print next a list of proper burglar tools and where to purchase them?

Every farm bill that comes before the U.S. House of Representatives, Republicans try to get rid of the food stamp program.
I wrote to U.S. Rep. Richard Nugent and he said many difficult decisions have to be made and he has told me he will remember my comments. Yet, he would vote to get rid of the food stamp program as House Republicans always do. It shows his tea party way of thinking and his view on the disabled.
I say this to my fellow disabled, tell U.S. Rep. Richard Nugent to not cut the programs that help disabled and elderly.
