As part of a group of friends, gathered with our families, at a home on Orange Blossom Road for a Friday evening of riding horses and BBQing, I was among the unfortunate witnesses to a horrific accident. The sickening sound of screeching tires and rolling metal on the concrete is something I won't soon forget.

Police and Firefighters are to "serve and protect" the citizens of their community and should not be controlled by Big Labor overriding state and local labor laws. This is the first step in forcing all state and public employees under Big Labor's thumb and will do nothing to make our communities safer. It is more likely to drive out upstanding men and women who will refuse to knuckle under to union militants' demands for illegal strikes, featherbedding and forced dues that the latter are squandered by the union bosses.
While going through Oakdale awhile back, we drove by a cemetery close to some railroad tracks. We noticed all these people with green vests working there. When we returned from Black Oak on that same route we just have to say those workers did a wonderful job on that cemetery.
