NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE CONTINUES ITS PRESENTATION OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION TONIGHT. PART FOUR OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY IS DEVOTED TO THE LAND AND THE WATER IN EAST ALACHUA COUNTY AND WHY THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT PLAN WILL HAVE SUCH A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OUR CONTINUED AVAILABILITY OF CLEAN WATER AND A HEALTHY WATERSHED. WE WILL INCLUDE DISCUSSION WITH A NUMBER OF TECHNICAL EXPERTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA AND THE SHOW WILL LEAD US TOWARD THE UPCOMING NEXT AND FINAL PHASE OF THE POLITICAL STORM THAT CAN NO LONGER BE AVOIDED.
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THIS SITUATION IN FLORIDA DIRECTLY IMPACTS YOU OR NOT, IT IS IMPORTANT TO PAY ATTENTION, FOR WHEREVER THERE IS CHEAP AND RAW LAND, PRECIOUS OR NOT, THERE IS SOMEONE BUILDING POLITICAL CONNECTIONS TO DEVELOP IT AND OFTEN IT IS NOT IN OUR BEST INTEREST. THIS IS HAPPENING ALL OVER AMERICA.
THE SHOW GOES LIVE AT 7:30 PM (ET) AND THEN WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
TONIGHT AT 7 ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT STORY IN THE THIRD INSTALLMENT. WE'LL MOVE TO A DISCUSSION OF THE UNINTENDED AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES THAT NEIGHBORS TO THE AMBITIOUS PROJECT WILL FACE AND HOW THEIR LIVES CAN LITERALLY BE TORN ABOUT. THE DISCUSSION YOU WILL HEAR IS A PART OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S EXCELLENT AUDIO PODCAST CREATED IN PART BY SUPPORT FROM THE SIERRA CLUB. AND I MUST ADMIT THAT THIS HUMBLE HOST IS INCLUDED AS ONE OF THE PARTICIPANTS SINCE i ALSO LIVE CLOSE BY THE WHERE THE ACTION WILL BE.
THE MAIN POINT BEING MADE IS THAT THE ENTIRE PROJECT IS OVERKILL, TRYING TO FORCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CITY IN LOW, OFTEN FLOODED LAND WITH NO INFRASTRUCTURE. AND SINCE PLUM CREEK HAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO ACTUALLY DEVELOP IT THEMSELVES, THE LOCAL TAXPAYERS, INCLUDING THOSE OF US DIRECTLY IMPACTED, WILL PAY THE PRICE BOTH IN TAXES AND LOSS OF QUALITY OF LIFE. DOES THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CARE? ONLY TIME WILL TELL AND THAT WILL COME IN NEXT WEEK'S MASSIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS.
WE HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN FOR WHEREVER YOU LIVE, DEVELOPMENTS OF THIS TYPE ARE BEING PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. I GUESS PEOPLE WILL FINALLY WAKE UP WHEN THE TREES ARE GONE, THE SPRAWL HAS LEFT BEHIND BOARDED UP COMMUNITIES AND WE'LL WONDER WHAT HAPPENED. SO PAY ATTENTION, YOU MIGHT LEARN A THING OR TWO THAT YOU CAN DO AS WELL.
ALACHUA COUNTY, FL COMMISSIONERS WILL SOON DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WILL GRANT PLUM CREEK TIMBER APPROVAL TO BUILD A "CITY IN THE SWAMP" ON ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE LAND. THE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST HAS CONDUCTED A MASTERFUL CAMPAIGN TO PIT GROUPS OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTY AGAINST ONE ANOTHER BY PROMISING THE "WORLD" TO SOME AND IGNORING THE CONCERNS OF OTHERS.
THIS SHOW WILL BEGIN THE AIRING BY NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE OF FIVE INSTALLMENTS WHICH WILL PROVIDE, AS THE GREAT PAUL HARVEY SAID, THE REST OF THE STORY. THEY WERE PRODUCED FOR THE SIERRA CLUB BY GEORGE SIBLEY, A TALENTED PRESENTER WHO INTERVIEWED A NUMBER OF CITIZENS WHO HAVE HUGE CONCERNS ABOUT THIS ACTION. NOW I DON'T AGREE WITH MANY OF THE ACTIONS THAT THE SIERRA CLUB SUPPORTS, ON THIS ONE THEY ARE "SPOT ON". THIS BROADCASTER IS PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN ASKED TO PARTICIPATE AND WAS INCLUDED IN THE INTERVIEWS.
JOIN US FOR THE FIRST OF FIVE PRESENTATIONS AS WE DISCUSS HOW FLORIDA COULD BE LOSING ITS VERY LIFEBLOOD, THE PRECIOUS AQUIFER AND THE UNQUE SURROUNDINGS THAT MADE FLORIDA SUCH A SPECIAL PLACE. OH, DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH IS NATURAL AND CAN BE VERY GOOD, BUT UNBRIDLED GROWTH WITHOUT CONCERN FOR THE CONSEQUENCES IS VERY DANGEROUS, BOTH HERE IN FLORIDA AND THROUGHOUT THIS GREAT LAND. THE SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND FOLLOWING THE LIVE BROADCAST ON WEDNESDAY. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL PRESENT PART TWO OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY, FEATURING GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION FOR THE SIERRA CLUB OF PLUM PUDDING ON FRIDAY. IT WILL CONTINUE THE EFFORTS TO QUESTION A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT BY A LARGE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST IN FRAGILE, WET AND RURAL NORTH FLORIDA. CITIZENS BECOME AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND BEGIN TO ORGANIZE TO IMPACT WHAT IS UNFOLDING. WILL THEY BE SUCCESSFUL IN ULTIMATELY ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS OF THE AREA OR WILL THEIR EFFORTS BE TO NO AVAIL? WELL, WE'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS UP.
THIS IS NOT AN INDICTMENT OF DEVELOPMENT, FOR WE ALL KNOW THAT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND JOB GROWTH IS NECESSARY FOR AN ECONOMY TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY, BUT THERE IS A CATCH WITH THE APPROACH IF IT ISN'T TEMPERED TO A DEGREE. WHEN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICALLY DESTROYS THE NEARBY NEIGHBORS, IT'S NOT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AT ALL. IT'S ECONOMIC DISASTER.
THE SHOW WILL RUN AT 6 PM (ET) FRIDAY AND THEN BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.

Walnut Creek, CA – Money comes and goes. Wealth is the ability to navigate the world as you please. Money is simply a tool that gets you there.
Sally Domingo is a Wealth Empowerment Expert, a speaker, author, coach and the founder of Women Wealth Mastery, where she assists professional and entrepreneurial women to change the paradigm and put their life first and work second.
“I work with women who work too hard,” says Sally. “I help them reshape their life so they can enjoy the things they want in life. I help them get organized and get educated on their money so their money works harder to drive the things they really want to do and have more fun.
Sally helps her clients overcome self-doubt and become confident inwhat really drives them. Sally says when we can change our attitude, we attract positive experiences. The more you put yourself out there and make bold, swift decisions, the more likely you are to make money.
“Once we can get you out of your old mindset and put yourself first, that’s when everything changes,” says Sally. “That’s when you attract money, manifest wealth and find your dream.”
