America is looking for a leader anywhere.
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.
In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni-- or "Gio" as she likes to be called-- was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book beforehand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.
The pen was handed down to her from an older sibling as a means to focus her negative energy and anger into something different but was used as a way to alter her own situations.
As a preteen Gio witnessed how much her writing could touch someone when she left one of her prized spirals in a classroom without knowing. Two weeks after it went missing someone brought it back to her asking for more, letting the young author know that almost everyone she knew read the story, but without knowing it was her in the story she had written.
Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and transgender rights, and says: "You can't help who you are and you damn sure can't help who you love. You should be true to who are rather than to conform and live the ultimate lie and live miserably until the day you die." Credited from the poem she penned "Titanium", modeled after her novel.
Gio is a mother of three children, the founder of Lucid Legends Publishing/ Photography, Kno Joke Entertainment, the host of "We Talk TOO Much Radio" on BlogTalk Radio and blogs on Tumblr under the name "KnoJokeGio". She is a friend to many and prides herself on making a smile out of an extremely horrible day. "It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day... a smile could make everything else seem so small. Crack a joke when someone is hurt and see how fast they cheer up.
America the Beautiful, and it was beautiful a very long time ago. It was a helluva country. Today we reward children even if they run the quarter mile in just under an hour. A place where the losers, known as taxpayers, are held liable for criminal practices of financial institutions. A place where veterans are deemed unworthy of decent medical care. A place where illegal aliens are the new "nigger". These are but a few factors which precipitated America's demise. Before we became irresponsible parents, demented leaders and sheeplike citizens, Americans created the BEST and STRONGEST nation in the history of the world. The last of many generations that forged this America from a wilderness to landing man on the moon is dying out. We are at a moment when America must decide - Are we GREAT because we are compassionate, wise and informed, or are we to be judged for a lack of will and a loss of vision.Lets pray that engaged citizens and wise leaders arise to save this once great nation..
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”
