    NO TO COMMON CORE: A FLORIDA PERSPECTIVE

    in Lifestyle

    SEVERAL WEEKS AGO WE HAD MEG NORRIS, A GEORGIA OPT-OUT OF COMMON CORE LEADER AS OUR GUEST TO DISCUSS THE PITFALLS OF COMMON CORE AND THE NEGATIVE IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE ON THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN, MOST PARTICULARLY THE YOUNGSTERS IN GRADES K-3.  TONIGHT (THURSDAY, JUNE 11) NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WELCOMES CINDY HAMILTON, A LEADER IN THE ORLANDO OPT-OUT ORGANIZATION TO PRESENT THE FLORIDA PERSPECTIVE ON THIS PROGRAM.


    CINDY WILL FILL US IN ON WHAT IS HAPPENING PRESENTLY AND PLANNED IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO KEEP EDUCATING FLORIDIANS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE ON WHY THIS PROGRAM MUST BE STOPPED.  SHE HAS DEDICATED HERSELF TO THE CAUSE OF FURTHERING AN EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR OUR CHILDREN WHICH WILL PREPARE THEM TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE, NOT TO BE PIGEON-HOLED BY A CRONY-CAPITALIST AND GOVERNMENT LINKED POWERHOUSE WHICH THINKS IT KNOWS BETTER THAN PARENTS AND TEACHERS WHAT OUR CHILDREN NEED.


    I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US THURSDAY NIGHT TO SEE WHAT IS AT STAKE. THE SHOW WILL START PROMPTLY AT 9:02 PM BUT WILL AS ALWAYS REMAIN AVAILABLE ON DEMAND.

    UPDATE ON OPT-OUT COMMON CORE WITH GUEST MEG NORRIS

    in Lifestyle

    THURSDAY NIGHT'S NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE PROGRAM WILL BE A REVISIT WITH OPT-OUT GEORGIA COMMON CORE LEADER MEG NORRIS.  WE'LL LOOK AT WHERE THINGS STAND AS WE PREPARE TO START A NEW SCHOOL YEAR NATIONWIDE.  WE'LL REVIEW THE MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH THE COMMON CORE ISSUE, ADDRESS WHAT SHOULD BE DONE AND HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING THERE.  WE'LL ALSO LOOK AT THE ONGOING ACTIVITIES OF THE BURGEONING OPT-OUT PROGRAM BOTH IN GEORGIA AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY.  ALL AMERICANS NEED TO PAY ATTENTION WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN SINCE THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY DEPENDS ON THE QUALITY OF PREPARATION OUR YOUNG PEOPLE RECEIVE AS THEY PREPARE FOR ADULTHOOD.


    THE SHOW WILL START AT 9PM AND WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND UPON COMPLETION.  STAY INFORMED; THE SUBJECT PROMISES TO BE A MAJOR ISSUE IN THE 2016 ELECTION CYCLE.  HOPE YOU'LL TUNE AND LEARN WHAT IS BEING DONE WITH SOME OF YOUR TAX MONEY.

    HOMEOWNERS BEWARE: NEW HUD REGULATIONS WILL IMPACT YOU DIRECTLY

    in Lifestyle

    SO YOU'VE WORKED HARD TO BUY THAT DREAM HOME THAT YOU WANTED IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE GOOD SCHOOLS ABOUND AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE SAFE TO LEARN AND GROW. WELL, GET YOUR SEAT BELTS ON BECAUSE NEW HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT RULES HAVE BEEN ISSUED WHICH ARE LIKELY TO IMPACT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY DIRECTLY AND NOT FOR THE BETTER.  IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NEW SECRET DATA BASE ON AMERICANS BY RACE, CREED, COLOR, INCOME AND NEARLY EVERY CONCEIVABLE ITEM OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOU, HUD IS LOOKING TO MAKE EVERY ZIP CODE IN AMERICA A REPLICA OF THE NATIONAL STATISTICS BY CATEGORY.  IN OTHER WORDS, NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, YOUR COMMUNITY WILL BE MOVING TOWARD A STANDARD THAT IS FOUND IDENTICALLY IN EVERY NOOK AND CRANNY OF THE LAND EVEN IF NO ONE, OTHER THAN BUREAUCRATS, DESIRES THIS.


    DON'T BELIEVE ME?  WELL, I KNOW IT SEEMS LIKE MADNESS, BUT JOIN ME TUESDAY NIGHT AT 9PM ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WITH MY GUEST, BROKER-REALTOR DARLENE PIFALO, WHO WILL PROVIDE THE BAD NEWS AND HOW IT WILL IMPACT US.  YOU CAN ONLY FIGHT AGAINST THINGS THAT YOU ARE INFORMED ABOUT AND THAT'S WHAT WE HOPE TO DO TUESDAY NIGHT.


    THIS HAS BEEN TRIED BEFORE, BUT NEVER ON A NATIONAL SCALE AND NEVER WITHOUT THE INPUT AND CONSENT OF YOUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES.  NO ONE IS BETTER ABLE TO DISCUSS THIS THAN DARLENE PIFALO, A PROMINENT REALTOR IN THE GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA AREA WHO KNOWS THE INS AND OUTS OF THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY AND HOW IMPORTANT YOUR HOME AND YOUR MONEY ARE TO YOU. SHE IS KNOWN IN THIS AREA AS "THE PURRFECT" REALTOR AS SHE AND HER FELINE SIDEKICK, LUCKY, SHOW HER ZEST FOR ALL ASPECTS OF BUSINESS AND LIFE INCLUDING HER  LOVE FOR ANIMALS.


    HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US. IT WILL BE A VERY INFORMATIVE INTERVIEW.  DON'T SAY WE DIDN'T WARN YOU.  SEE YOU THEN.

    SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN: THE BLESSED RAIN

    in Lifestyle

    THIS SUMMER HAS BEEN ONE OF LOTS OF RAIN AND SOME PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT IT, ESPECIALLY AT A TIME LIKE THIS WEEKEND. YES, RAIN CAN RUIN OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES, BUT DON'T YOU REMEMBER THOSE NEARLY FOUR YEARS OF DROUGHT-LIKE CONDITIONS NOT VERY LONG AGO?  RAIN IS A BLESSING FROM GOD THAT GIVES US LIVE.  TRY SURVIVING WITHOUT WATER AND YOU'LL BE BEGGING FOR IT.  SO INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING ABOUT IT, REVEL IN IT AND THANK GOD ABOVE FOR THIS GIFT THAT WE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT.  IT WILL STOP IN DUE TIME AND YOU MAY BE WISHING FOR IT AGAIN SOONER THAN YOU THINK.


    SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN IS A SHORT PEACEFUL TIME WHEN YOU CAN REMEMBER GOD AND HIS SON THE SAVIOR AND WORSHIP HIM IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME.  SHORT, SWEET AND TO THE POINT BUT ALWAYS ON POINT WITH WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT: OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR MAKER.  HOPE YOU'LL JOIN ME.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER SHORT TAKE: IMAGINE......(4)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE A WORLD OF UNLIMITED RESOURCES AND MONEY WHERE WE COULD ALL DO AS MUCH AS WE WANT AND USE AS MUCH AS WE WANT WITHOUT EVERY HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF WHAT WE WANT.  I THINK WE'D PROBABLY HAVE TO BE IN HEAVEN TO HAVE SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY BUT, THEN AGAIN, WE OFTEN LIVE TODAY AS IF THINGS ARE UNLIMITED.


    FOOD, SUPPLIES, GOVERNMENT SERVICES, CARS, HOMES, LAND AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT MONEY CAN BUY TODAY IS A SUPPLY AND DEMAND SITUATION.  WHEN SUPPLY OUTPACES DEMAND, IT IS EASIER FOR ALL OF US TO GET WHAT WE WANT. WHEN DEMAND IS GREATER, THE OPPOSITE APPLIES, YET WE OFTEN LIVE AS IF THERE ARE NO LIMITS UNTIL WE HIT THE BRICK WALL: WE CAN'T AFFORD IT OR WE CAN'T GET IT.  AND THE WORST OF IT IS THAT BY THAT POINT WE ARE OUT OF THE ONE ITEM, MONEY, THAT IS NEEDED. THIS APPLIES TO INDIVIDUALS, BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT.


    TONIGHT WE'LL TALK A LITTLE ABOUT FACING REALITY: IN OUR HOMES, SCHOOLS, WORK, GOVERNMENT, CHURCH AND EVEN LEISURE.  LET'S TRY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR REAL NEEDS BEFORE WE GO AFTER THE WANTS.  IT WILL SAVE US A LOT OF GRIEF AND A LOT OF AGGRAVATION.  SEE YOU TONIGHT AT 9 (ET)

    A North Florida Writer "Short Take": Imagine(3)........

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT'S SHORT TAKE WILL BE ABOUT A SPECIAL PEEVE OF MINE: THE PERILS OF DINING OUT.  AND NO, IN THIS SHORT OPINION PIECE I'M NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THE RESTAURANT OR THE WAIT STAFF.  LET'S JUST ASSUME THAT THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT, THE SERVICE IS GREAT AND THE AMBIANCE OF THE LAYOUT AND ACCOUTREMENTS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT ARE SUPERB.  WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT IS THE BEHAVIOR, PRESENTATION AND ATTITUDE OF SOME OF THE DINERS WHO RUIN A NICE EVENING FOR EVERYONE.  I KNOW THAT ALL OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS.


    SO JUST IMAGINE....A GREAT RESTAURANT FILLED WITH NICE, WELL MANNERED AND PRESENTABLE PEOPLE WHO RECOGNIZE MY RIGHT AND YOURS NOT TO BE THROWN INTO "GRAND CENTRAL STATION AT RUSH HOUR".  IF YOU'RE IN A RUSH THERE ARE PLENTY OF DECENT FAMILY ORIENTED FACILITIES THAT MEET YOUR NEEDS AS WELL AS UNTOLD FAST FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS.  THERE ARE ALSO MANY PLACES THAT ESPECIALLY CATER TO KIDS, SO CONSIDER THAT AS WELL.


    AS RODNEY DANGERFIELD SAID: "I DON'T GET NO RESPECT". YOU NEVER WANT TO LEAVE A GOOD RESTAURANT FEELING THAT WAY.


    THE SHOW WILL ACTUALLY START AT 9:02 EASTERN.  I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN ME. DINING OUT, JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE THINGS WE DO IN LIFE AND LIVING IT.

    North Florida Writer Live "Short Take": Imagine...........(5)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE THAT YOU BUY YOUR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, YOU NEED TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS ON YOUR PROPERTY AND REFINEMENTS AND YOU TAKE CARE OF IT AND THINGS ARE NOW PERFECT.  BUT WAIT, DID YOU GET APPROVAL FOR YOUR ACTIONS? DOES IT MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS AND DID YOU PAY ANY PENALTIES AND FINES ASSESSED FOR NOT FOLLOWING LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL REGULATIONS?


    SERIOUSLY, FOLKS, IF YOU THINK THAT A HOME IS A MAN'S (OR WOMAN'S) CASTLE, YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF IN FOR A HUGE SHOCK.  AND TODAY MORE AND MORE DIFFERENT AGENCIES AND OFFICES AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT ARE GETTING IN ON THE GRAVY TRAIN OF TAKING YOUR MONEY FOR HAVING THE PRIVILEGE TO OWN LAND IN THEIR JURISDICTION AND IT IS LIKELY TO ONLY GET WORSE IN THE DAYS AHEAD.


    AND IF AND WHEN YOU PAY OFF YOUR MORTGAGE, JUST TRY NOT PAYING PROPERTY TAXES OR OTHER LOCAL ASSESSMENTS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS?  YOU COULD VERY WELL FIND YOURSELF OUT ON THE STREET AND YOU REMAIN AT THE MERCY OF HUNGRY GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT ALWAYS WANT TO TAX MORE SO THEY CAN SPEND MORE.


    JUST BE AWARE AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE RULES BEFORE YOU GET YOURSELF IN A "PICKLE".
