    SO WHAT IS THE PLUM CREEK-HAWTHORNE CONNECTION?

    in Lifestyle

    HERE ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE, WE HAVE PREVIOUSLY TALKED ABOUT THE STATE OF OVER DEVELOPMENT AND LACK OF FORESIGHT IN THE SUNSHINE STATE AND NO PROPOSALS OFFER MORE NEGATIVE POTENTIAL IMPACT TO CLEAN WATER, WILDLIFE AND THE RURAL LIFE THAN PLUM CREEK'S AMBITIOUS PLANS IN ALACHUA COUNTY.  HOPING TO DEVELOP A PRISTINE WATERSHED AREA WITH NO INFRASTRUCTURE INTO A "CITY IN THE SWAMP", THEY HAVE NOW REQUESTED THE SMALL CITY OF HAWTHORNE TO ANNEX A PORTION OF THEIR LAND, THEREBY AVOIDING THE MORE DIFFICULT TASK OF MEETING THE COUNTY'S STRICT ZONING AND PLANNING REQUIREMENTS WITH THE AID OF STATE GOVERNMENT.  WHAT'S MORE, THEY PREVIOUSLY CLAIMED THEY WANTED TO BE GOOD NEIGHBORS, YET THEY HAVE THUMBED THEIR NOSES AT THE LARGE NUMBER OF RURAL RESIDENTS WHO ARE OPPOSED BY IGNORING THEM.


    ONE OF THOSE RESIDENTS WILL BE MY GUEST ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE FOR A SPECIAL EDITION ON SATURDAY AT 10 A.M.  LORI WIGGINS, A LIFE LONG RESIDENT, NEVER INVOLVED HERSELF IN POLITICAL ISSUES BEFORE THIS ISSUE SURFACED.  SHE DEVOTED HERSELF TO RAISING HER CHILDREN BUT NOW WITH HER CHILDREN GROWN SHE HAS INVESTIGATED THIS PROPOSAL AND FINDS IT SERIOUSLY DEFICIENT AND DETRIMENTAL TO THE AREA AS DO MANY IN THE AREA, INCLUDING YOUR HOST.  WE WILL TALK ABOUT THE ISSUE, WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED AND HOW THE SMALL CITY OF HAWTHORNE WITH ONLY 1200 RESIDENTS HAS JOINED THE FRAY ON BEHALF OF PLUM CREEK.  EVERYTHING SINCE THE INITIAL RECOMMENDATION OF DENIAL BY THE COUNTY HAS BEEN HANDLED WITH LITTLE FANFARE AND PUBLIC REVIEW.  WE HOPE TO CHANGE THAT FOLLOWING THIS SHOW.


    RURAL AMERICA: PAY ATTENTION.  PROJECTS SUCH AS THIS ONE ARE UNDERWAY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AS DEVELOPERS PUSH TO DEVELOP ON RAW, CHEAP LAND AND YOU'LL GET THE TAX BILL.

    Andre Controversa Presents: The Trans-Pacific Partnership

    in Politics Conservative

    All,
    we have an exciting show tonight; only an hour long but with an excellent
    guest.


    Tonight we will be joined by Rick Manning, president of Americans for
    Limited Government.


    Our discussion will focus on the Trans-Pacific partnership, as well as
    the effort to   give Obama fast-track trade promotion authority.


    Both of these proposals are collectively known as Obama trade.
    We will be discussing the emerging Right-Left alliance opposing this
    multilateral monstrosity, and why those supporting limited government
    should support limiting presidential power, even in the area of so-called
    "free trade."


    Please tune in to the Andre Controversa show at
    www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, starting at 9-00 p.m. CT.
    Our call-in number is 914-803-4350.
