• To the parents of Florida’s kids, make sure you do not hear to our surgeon general’s tips about COVID vaccines for your kid. He has no credentials, no practical experience in pediatrics, infectious disease, epidemiology. Please depend on your pediatrician’s advice. After all, your pediatrician is the one particular who will be using treatment of any little one of yours who does appear down with COVID.
• All UF hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, and many others., require individuals who enter them to dress in masks. I ponder how they are dealing with Dr. Ladapo’s visits inside those people institutions as he refuses to have on masks, and how they would take care of a go to from Gov. DeSantis, who refuses to put on a mask.
• Why has not The Sun or, particularly, Nathan Crabbe done an editorial about why our utility premiums are so higher? You go away it to people to write in letters to the editor, and they get bashed as racist or whatsoever names you can throw at them. But, the base line, if I’m not mistaken, and I could be, that our earlier mayors and present mayor are the kinds who voted for this biomass plant, and this biomass plant has prompted mysterious hurdles, hurdles and fees back to GRU and the city.
• You know, you just can’t call GRU if you learn an error in their billing. You just can’t make contact with anybody at GRU without the need of a 30-minute to 45-moment hold time, and then they refer you to someone else. Perhaps the City Commission can do something worthwhile for a adjust and come across out why this backlog of client provider at GRU is so wonderful. This has been going on for many years!
• The city of Gainesville states it is inexperienced, but the metropolis permits a lot of demolitions. Demolitions are not inexperienced. End sending our properties to the landfill.
• I am contacting in regards to the particular person that submitted the short article on the parental legal rights monthly bill. Each individual 12 months, pupils are given the parental legal rights invoice to be reviewed by the dad or mum and a university student. At the beginning of every single college 12 months, the guidelines and laws are briefly reviewed with learners by lecturers. It is eventually the parents’ duty to just take time and comprehensively read it and go over it with their child, the student. Possibly if we spend far more in currently being dad and mom to our youngsters, as opposed to ready for educators to do the parents’ work, we would have a better school method.
• The Florida Legislature has only factor that they must, by regulation, do throughout the annual session, and that is to pass a funds. They failed, so we, as the taxpayers, get to acquire them each a plane ticket to go dwelling for the weekend so they can return on Monday and finish what they have been meant to do. Oh effectively, at least we have a new Florida formal dessert. I guess we really should be grateful for that.
• Quite a few new letter writers proclaimed, “Republicans stand for respect.” Actually? House Republican Minority Chief Kevin McCarthy refuses to reprimand two Republicans that just lately spoke and supported the white nationalists’ convention in Orlando, but will punish any Republican that participates in the Jan. 6 insurrection investigation. Deserving of regard?
