Cathy Salustri Clearly Doesn't Understand Art
In her September 4th article titled "I Clearly Don't Understand Art", Cathy Salustri's tyrade against, and calling out of, local artists Owen Pach and Frank Strunk III was overly aggressive, mean-spirited and lacked basic fact-finding required by true journalists. Read more...

Councilman Liedtke’s EPA Response

I hope we are all in favor of saving the planet… but some of the statements found in resolution 2012-30 are open for debate, may not be based on sound vetted science and will likely result in an even higher unemployment rate (which went up to a nationwide average of 8.2% last week).

New "Codes" Sheriff in Town

Things that make me go wha????!!!! It's interesting how, when financial times get tough, the most vulnerable are the ones who are blamed and punished. There's a new, SELF-APPOINTED, Sheriff in Gulfport Folks! He/she created an ANONYMOUS FB page with photos of homes in Gulfport called "VISUALLY POLLUTED & BLIGHTED HOMES OF GULFPORT, FLORIDA." He/she is trying to shame/bully/intimidate his neighbors into coming up to his obviously impeccable standards. My home, which I rent, is on that list, apparently because of the Permaculture Garden out front where I used re-purposed chunks of concrete to build up the beds, and which would otherwise have been on their way to the landfill. I have been unable to tend to my garden faithfully in recent weeks as I have Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and other autoimmune issues which flare. I've also been battling the flu for more than a month and am currently under physician's care. Since whoever he/she/they/it is who created this page did not just approach me civilly, with the respect and dignity we should proffer our neighbors, but instead chose to police our homes and snipe anonymously at his/her neighbors, taking pot-shots from the safety of cover.

  Please visit "VISUALLY POLLUTED & BLIGHTED HOMES OF GULFPORT, FLORIDA.," on Facebook and weigh in today, where the Loving, Forgiving, Healing ideas of Jesus the Christ are evoked. Thank you so much for your support! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Visually-Polluted-Blighted-Homes-of-Gulfport-Florida/160213044076997

Scare Tactics Inflame not Inform
Unfounded accusations and what-ifs based on questionable interpretation of critical issues facing our city are an impediment to good government, a well-informed citizenry, and a cohesive community. One should seek out and understand the facts first before one regurgitates clueless and unfounded concerns that inflame instead of inform.  Read more...
