|Sugar Can't Buy You Love...But it Sure Can Buy You Favors.|
U.S. Sugar wants to -- according to the Miami Herald through the Broward Bulldog:
"The Sugar Hill Sector Plan envisions turning 43,313 acres -- or more than 67 square miles -- of sugar cane fields (me: historical Everglades), citrus groves and pasture lands into a planned community featuring 18,000 residential units and 25 million square feet of space to accommodate manufacturing, warehousing, transportation services and other kinds of businesses."
All of this development is North of the Everglades in Hendry County. This is the same group that paid for that nitwit Governor Scott to go to that shoot 'em up ranch in Texas, the secret trip we all know about. Talk about a trip currying favors.
I don't write about sugar. Gimleteye does. Is he trying to shirk his duty as sugar writer? Let him editorialize just how beyond bad this is. He never reads my blogs, so he might miss this. I never read his, so he might have reported on it already. We have a mutual admiration policy --- I think he shudders when he reads what I write. Oops Gimleteye said he DID write about this...
Say goodbye to the Everglades if this goes through. It is just a swamp anyway to most of you, even though it is your source of drinking water.
Good luck trying to find this in the Miami Herald online. If we ever needed Charlie Crist we need him now. Charlie, save us from this development plan.
