    “A Charming Little Town With A Juicy Past”. It’s been sad to watch Orlando squander all the progress it made beginning in 1980 after 2003. Thankfully, Winter Garden has picked up the challenge and is growing apace while preserving its past. It’s been fun to return to my roots and to make a small contribution to the energy of an amazing community.

  1. “—@DanRather: When the hurricane hits Florida, federal aid will flow into help — paid for by tax dollars from Americans across the country. Airplanes will be full of supplies, not stunts. There will be no “us” and “them.” Because this is how America should act and most Americans know it.”
  2. Ybor City's historic chickens are being kept safe from Hurricane Ian (Via Tampa Bay Times) http://www.tampabay.com/hurricane/2022/09/28/ybor-citys-historic-chickens-are-being-kept-safe-hurricane-ian/
  3. @jrs2’s favorite sports columnist (via Bianchi) weighs in…. ‘From David Whitley of the Gainesville Sun: “To be safe, Florida should move this week’s game to Eastern Washington and play it at red-turfed Roos Field. With a capacity of 8,600 fans, the Gators might learn to appreciate what Miami players see at every home game.” …’
  4. This is a photo of my favorite sculpture ever and how it went viral after Hurricane Irma came close to sinking The Bold New City of the South in 2017: https://www.thejaxsonmag.com/article/the-story-behind-hurricane-irmas-most-famous-photo/ From The Jaxson
  5. Pres Church USA I believe leans progressive. First Pres is decidedly not. Park Lake Pres (near Lake Highland) is one of the most progressive mainline churches in town (the Faith Arts Village is theirs). Generally, a progressive church follows the actual teachings of Christ. The more conservative churches act a lot like the Pharisees, who Jesus didn’t have much use for. Gandhi liked to say “I like your Jesus, your Christians not so much”. A more simple philosophy if you don’t like organized religion: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
  6. More pizza for SoDough: https://bungalower.com/2022/09/22/black-magic-pizza-is-opening-a-brick-and-mortar-in-sodo/ From Bungalower You know you can’t get enough…
  7. Scott J has announced the winners of the Foodster Award for Best Tacos 2022: Tuesday seems to be an appropriate day to announce that Marita’s Latin Bites is the winner of the 2022 Best Tacos Foodster Award for Independent Restaurants. Black Rooster Taqueria was voted second with Hunger Street Tacos only a few votes behind. https://www.scottjosephorlando.com/foodster-awards/past-winners/6165-2022-best-tacos Hurry on out and grab your taco before they bow away with Ian!
  8. I think he spent a little too much time lounging on the grassy knoll again this summer…
  9. But Marco is a co-sponsor. Gonna vote for him? Meanwhile, DeSantis already signed the bill with no exceptions. Supporting him too? Birth control will be next - he cares for no one but his base.
  10. I remember after Dobbs I was told in this very room that states could still make their own decisions on choice and that it wouldn’t affect birth control at all. Well. Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of the highest ranking Republican senators has introduced legislation requiring forced birth (Little Marco is a co-sponsor if you think it has nothing to do with Florida). And, now this on birth control: “The University of Idaho’s general counsel issued guidance on Friday about the state’s near-total abortion ban, alerting faculty and staff that the school should no longer offer birth control for students, a rare move for a state university.” From The Washington Post Nope, don’t believe a word coming from the right and their aiders and abetters.
  11. Orange County board to discuss a ‘Tenant Bill of Rights’ https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/orange-county/os-ne-orange-tenant-bill-of-rights-20220926-zur6oqk6j5a7himemuzykybjlm-story.html From The Sentinel Everybody sing: “…and the times they are a changin’” https://youtu.be/90WD_ats6eE
  12. Tornatores will be closed to inside dining Oct 2-12 for an extensive redo of the interior: https://www.scottjosephorlando.com/news/6163-tornatore-s-suspending-inside-dining-for-extensive-remodel From Scott J Once they sent the Bishop Moore kids packing, it’s time to give the place some class!
  13. “Mayor Jerry Demings: Most local Hurricane Ian impact will be north/west of Interstate 4” From The West Orange Times Observer
