Cruz should never had had access to a gun. He was born with fetal alcohol syndrome and then diagnosed with a variety of other problems. His adoptive mother upon her demise left him to a woman who lived in horrible conditions. Whom also kicked him out despite being paid to take him in. She claims she kicked him out over weapons… Yet it was obvious by pictures of her horrid back yard that he often used the yard as a target range. I have no idea what set this obviously mentally ill young man off. Nor am I defending his actions AT ALL. However there were people well aware of his history who did nothing. People want to make this a gun control issue. It is not. It is a mental health/society issue. How is it that the new couple he lived with did not know he had a key to the gun safe? To many questions unanswered and to many lives taken because no one paid attention. Schools need metal detectors and a few officers with guns.
Guns don’t kill people – people kill people
Every time there’s a mass shooting, people respond in the same way – they call for tighter gun-control laws to make it harder for people to get their hands on the deadly weapons. But what about the killer behind the trigger? Could the problem be more to do with people than guns?
Florida Statute 112,313 (6) says:
(6) MISUSE OF PUBLIC POSITION.—No public officer, employee of an agency, or local government attorney shall corruptly use or attempt to use his or her official position or any property or resource which may be within his or her trust, or perform his or her official duties, to secure a special privilege, benefit, or exemption for himself, herself, or others. This section shall not be construed to conflict with s. 104.31.
Ms. Stacy Tebo, Town Manager of the Town of White Springs has violated the above statute by allowing one Andrew Greene to Drive a Fire Department vehicle to his residence and on Trips out of Town. This “favor” has not been granted to any other town employee. Further this largeness of a tax payer asset does not benefit the town in any appreciable way. Mr. Greene lives approximately 20 miles from the town and couldn’t get back into town in time to affect the fighting of any fire. Further the town is paying for the depreciation and fuel and other consumables to provide this special privilege to Mr. Greene. During the time Mr. Greene has had exclusive use of this public asset he routinely uses the fire truck for his town job of water and waste water supervisor. Many times he has failed to take the truck to fires or has shown up for fires 45 minutes to an hour late without his fire-fighting equipment and clothing. He once showed up to a fire, sans PPS equipment in flip flops and shorts.
Via a town accounting, received by a FS 119 request, Ms. Tebo is allowing Mr. Greene to draw two checks a month from October to January for a total of almost $600 for each quarter or there about reaching $2400 per year that the taxpayers are paying Mr. Greene for the privilege of having sole use of the fully equipped Brush Truck. That’s correct. The taxpayers are paying Mr. Greene money to drive the publicly owned asset, ($350 for January alone when he took the truck to visit his in-laws in Tampa).
Ms. Tebo is aware of this special privilege and has actually allowed Mr.; Greene by direct verbal instruction to “use the truck as he sees fit.” When Mr. Greene has the truck either at his home or at his wife’s home in Tampa or on his job at the sewer or water plant it is not available for its purpose which is to assist in the control and putting out of fires.
She has granted to Mr. Greene a special benefit which no other town employee gets and has put the safety of the public at risk by this granting..
Right click twice to make the figures more readable. Ass you can see it is costing the taxpayers approximately $2500 per year to give Andrew the pleasure of driving the fire truck. It is guaranteed to be an ethics complaint. The town should stop this illegal practice.
Not only that but if you look at the chart below Andrew is getting TWO checks a month for the privilege of driving the taxpayer’s vehicles. And this doesn’t include oil, or maintenance or depreciation on the extra miles, one would say only miles, being put on the vehicle. If it wasn’t so comical I would cry. Yes an ethics complaint is in order, no doubt.
- 8 pieces of chicken (a whole chicken cut up or a 4 leg-and-thigh quarters, cut in half)
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons hot sauce (like Tabasco)
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup chili sauce
- 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
In a wide bowl that will hold the chicken in one layer, mix the buttermilk and hot sauce, then add the chicken pieces, turning to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, or refrigerate up to 12 hours.
Mix the flour and bread crumbs with the paprika, thyme and salt in a large plastic bag and shake to mix well.
Combine the eggs and chili sauce in a shallow bowl.
Remove the chicken from the buttermilk marinade and place on a wire rack over a rimmed cookie sheet and allow excess buttermilk to drip off for a few minutes while you prepare the oil for frying.
Using a wide deep skillet or a wok, pour in enough oil to measure 3 inches deep.
Place over medium-high heat and bring to 350 degrees F. use a thermometer to check the temperature.
While the oil is heating, drop chicken, a few pieces at a time, into the bag with the dry ingredients and shake to coat. Dip them into the egg mixture one at a time, then back into the dry ingredients again. Shake off excess coating and lay back on the cooling rack.
When the oil is at 350 degrees F, use tongs to lower a few pieces at a time into the hot oil; do not crowd the pan.
Cook for about 15 minutes, turning once and keeping an eye on the oil temperature, adjusting the heat to be sure the oil remains at 350 degrees F.
When chicken pieces are nicely browned, remove from the oil with tongs and set on a clean cooling rack / baking sheet so that air circulates around them.
Place into a 300 degree F oven while you repeat the procedure until all of the chicken is cooked; the chicken will continue to cook if any pieces are not quite cooked through in the frying process.

I’LL FIND THE STATE STATUTE THAT COVERS SUCH A THING. WHAT DO YOU BET FOR 30% OF THE VOTERS ASKING FOR A STATE AUDIT WE CAN GET THE STATE IN HERE TO CLEAN THINGS UP.
SPECIFICALLY WE NEED A RULING ON ANDREW USING THE FIRE TRUCK FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL VEHICLE AND STACY GETTING $8500 TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO PROSECUTE HELEN MILLER. PLUS I WOULD LIKE A RULING ON WHETHER RHETT IS LEGAL IN NOT PAYING HIS WATER DEPOSIT.
WOULDN’T THAT FROST THE TOWN’S BEHIND?
Fire Department update: 2/17/2018 10:25am medical call in White Springs. WSFD pages out with EMS. 10:30am no response from anyone with WSFD. Dispatch ask responding EMS unit if they wanted another Fire Department paged. No one from WSFD ever responded. Hope the White Springs citizen was alright and it wasn’t one of your family members.
This is what we get with no fire fighters on board. As shown in another recent article there is only one fire fighter who lives in town verses the six who lived in town prior to Stacy screwing with the Fire Department. And Stith promised us a responsive fire fighter corp at the last meeting of the town council. What a liar he has turned out to be.

Charles always has a good take on things
From the New York Post: WHY IN THE NEW YORK HARBOR We HAVE THE STATUE OF LIBERTY, NOT THE STATUE OF EQUALITY, by Charles Krauthammer.
I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called “Organizing for Action”(OFA).
OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and
allowed to follow our laws?
If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America !
Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration’s top dogs over to Organizing for Action.
OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America , and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.
OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for “progressive” change. Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.
OFA members were propped up by the ex-president’s message from the shadows:”Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines.. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond.”
OFA’s website says it obtained its “digital” assets from the ex-president’s re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA …
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “The OFA will fight
President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.”
Sperry writes that, “The ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that
the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwie. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC
Think about how this works. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs toaction in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up withsocial media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president’s signal that he is heartened by the protests…
If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.
If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.
So, do your part.
You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are
We are losing our country and we are so compliant.
We are becoming a “PERFECT TARGET” for our enemy!
