    Those for Florida are more for the southern part of the state. The northern part is loaded with state employees from other states. Up here, we had no problem with our voting. Local saying: A Yankee comes and visits, then goes home. A D*** Yankee comes down and stays. Still, it ain't hard to find some little towns hereabouts that look like something out of "Deliverence". Y'all ever heard of Shadeville or Two Egg?
    Hosford finally hit the big time. Replaced their flashing yellow traffic light with a red-yellow-green type. And yes, gators have right-of-way.
