Transfer Station

The Transfer station is a dump.... Why yes! That is the first step to the dump. I think it is run proficiently at a reasonable cost. The people collecting the fees are always friendly and courteous. So it is not the cleanest place in the County but hell its a trash dumping site not a flower garden.  (Sep 27, 2013 | post #14)

Hiking

I did the Arkaquah Trail starting at the parking lot at Trackrock Gap Road last week. Have not hiked in 20 years and am now getting older (74). I made the 1 mile trip to the top of the first section which is probably the most strenuous. It took me 3 hours with many stops to rest. Only 1.5 hours coming back down. I should have spent some time preparing myself prior to this hike. Maybe with a little more physical preparation at Meeks, I will give it another try but I did enjoy the view at the top.  (May 30, 2013 | post #18)

Cicadas - what the what?

They are out in force in the Trackrock Gap Area. I have several acres there and they go all day long. They sound like running water. Be glad when they mate and then die off for 17 more years.  (May 30, 2013 | post #9)

Attn Flarda people

Great post, you have nailed it. Florida was Florida years back and has changed beyond recognition. It has been destroyed by places like The Villages and all the newer retirment developments that surround all the large cities like Jacksonville, Tampa, and Orlando. To find the real Florida of the 40's, 50's, and 60's you have to go inland to many of the smaller cities and you will find many of the true Floridians.  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #39)

Don't Leave Slowpok!

I remember that well. We all believed he was laying on a slab somewhere. Everyone was in shock even Boodoodle his arch enemy was sad about his passing. Not sure what he is up to but find it hard to believe that Slo will stay away. He will just come up with some new persona's and jump back in.....  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #51)

Slow, You sure loves to go to Marco Island and study the Florida species. I would bet you are not collecting them purty shells on the beach but looking at them purty girls in them thongee things as long as your sweetheart does not catch you a looking. Why would anybody leave the mountains in fall to come to Florida anyway? Have a great time down in FLA.  (Oct 13, 2012 | post #26)

get a life! stop bashing people!

Slo, you da man, edumacated and all. Yous knows all about dem peckerwood people...... Shangirl, I was told back in the early 50's that you have to reside in Florida for 50 years in order to be considered a Floridian. You just a Yankee so you got to live with it until you hit 50 years of residency.....  (Sep 14, 2012 | post #18)

Part-time jobs for SO employees

Cause he is a deputy who can be and is required to answer a call 24/7 and he needs the car to answer an emergency call. So if you are concerned maybe you can request a 20 cent refund on your yearly county tax bill to cover your cost for SO gas usage.  (Sep 2, 2012 | post #7)

Retirement of Topix

Slo, Thanks for bringing this topic up. It needed to be said. Some interesting posts other than political should remain free and not highjacked. Same things goes for political posts. Hard to get everyone to comply but nothing wrong with hoping that it happens. By the way, I to miss Boodoodle. She made things interesting.  (Aug 19, 2012 | post #74)

Agree.... Example: I know (blank) is a crook. I was told this by my friend. Can't tell you my friend's name cause he would get fired. Can't tell you mine either but believe me (blank) is a crook. Don't know what he did wrong but he must be a crook cause my friend would know. Ahhh Topix posters  (Aug 1, 2012 | post #5)
