4 men caught in park sex sting

Well, what do they expect out there at saddle creek? I remember when families used to go out there and spend the day, I also remember lines of cars and hundreds of people lining both sides of the road there just out having fun . you can't do that anymore out there. This is one of those things that Polk County has pretty much stopped altogether. Now its a hangout for people fishing and homos. It's a shame, it used to be a good place to go , not anymore  (Aug 4, 2010 | post #35)

flea markets

Yep, and sometimes, near the concession stand, you can be serenaded by some shell shot crack head with a guitar, singing crappy anti American "songs" which he wrote himself, but other than that, its an O.K. flea market  (Aug 4, 2010 | post #3)

Gay Marriage - Lakeland, FL

This is one of those issues I could give a rats butt less about! the only part about I despise about homos is the fact that they use their sexual preferences to seperate themselves from everybody else, such as marches,rallies,and parades. who cares about some bent wrist's sexual preferences? just stop jamming it down everybodys throats , who cares if you like things jammed down yours?  (Aug 4, 2010 | post #3)

Lakeland Seeking Ways To Handle Homelessness

Yes,alcoholism is one of the biggest factors for homelessness in Lakeland, but there are other factors as well. Disabilities, new and old contribute greatly also.there are very few, if any law firms that help indigant people there to file for there ssi's, or ssdi's on the terms that an indigent person could follow. There should be a way for Lakeland homeless shelters to become more connected to more organizations and lawyers so they could at least classify the homeless into groups, such as: the drunks, the dopers, the simply unemployed, the disabled etc. and try to help each of the different categories of people for their own problems. The Catholic Charities in Pinellas County has a wonderful way of dealing with this problem by doing just that. the place is called Pinellas Hope and it is a place set aside to help the homeless, not merely feed them, but actually help their reasons. It's like a "tent city"and it is more isolated geographically than the shelters in Lakeland. The bus lines help by donating 1 month bus passes to screened applicants who need them for dr.s appts, job hunting etc. Pinellas Hope also provides ways and means to get I.D CARDS, DRIVER LICENCES,LEGAL HELP,HOUSING,MEDIC AL HELP,CHRISTIAN COUNSELING, GUIDANCE ETC., ON A MORE PERSONAL LEVEL, IF YOU REALLY WANT IT. I lived in Lakeland for over 30 years and have slept in every shelter and every "SAFE" place on the streets in Lakeland and I'm telling you that Lakeland, and Polk County addresses the homeless issue very poorly. When I became disabled and in ruin ,my wife and I had no other alternative than to live any way we could, and this entailed sleeping in bushes together for a time, seemingly disconnected from the world by homelessness and disability. We will never forget the way that people gawked at us for having to walk everywhere we went, all sweaty and gasping for breath, like we were criminals and classified as dead people walking, I shudder at the memories. we know that there is a good way to deal with the reasons for homelessness because we have been there and are there no longer, thanks to the grace of god and the help of Pinellas hope and Catholic Charities, and Pinellas County. We now live in Pinellas county, in our home because somebody cared enough to help us get connected . Thank you a miilion times to Pinellas Hope and The Catholic Charities and Pinellas county, and especially GOD, we love you all  (Aug 1, 2010 | post #4)
