The lies these people tell and the morons who believe it and the media reporting such garbage is disturbing!

No street lights, no library, no stores. A Lot of folks prefer the rural life! That is why they chose to move to Bithlo. If you want city life, then move to the city!

Being 10-15 minutes away from any store isn't rural. There may be some parts of Bithlo with some open land but it is far from "rural".

Bithlo is still rural compared to other communities in the Orlando area.

City dwellers wouldn't know "rural" if they saw it.Those of us who want to keep our rural lifestyle in Bithlo will never accept the word of those who think we aren't rural enough for their approval. We were here first.Adapt,change or go home!WE WILL NOT TRANSFORM FOR ANYONE!

Wonder why the "Jim Jones" followers of Conway Tim don't defend his sorry ass here? are they washing his "Superman" cape for him? Don't expect this hero to do anything but blow hot air and B.S.
Save your accolades for a REAL hero of the people. Not a plasiic phony like Conway Tim!

isn't it strange that tim needs to put up $50,000 to pay for septic improvements on his "school" and all of a sudden there is contaminated water and he wants city water to come in? that would cost him about $10,000 to hook up to, quite a savings for him, don't you think? by the way, that water has been bad for decades and it is just now becoming a problem?? whats up with that? but we all know that tim is only trying to help the "poor people of bithlo" hmmmmmmm !! right ? timmy go home ----- we don't want or need your help, we are fine the way we are. we choose to live here and we like it !

Conway Tim doesn't realize his water is not contaminated and comes from an underground supply of water that has been there for over 100 years and supplied Bithlo from the waterworks building that was next to his property. He is only stirring up trouble to make himself feel important and make Bithlo look like helpless fools that he considers us to be.
Looks like he is fooling himself!
