    This message is reposted from another thread---

    The state does the spraying, but the county commissioners enter into a contract with the state. If the county commissioners don't ask for the spraying, it doesn't happen. So, contact your county commissioners about the spraying for both dog flies and mosquitos. All pesticides are harmful to living organisms. I don't want any of that stuff sprayed anywhere near me, my kids, my friends or even my worst enemies. Just a few minutes of research on the net will tell you that all of the mosquito, dog fly and other pesticides are very dangerous to your health. I would rather be attacked on the beach by dog flies than poisoned.

    Please send a letter to the county commissioners.


    Here are the email addresses for all of our commissioneers. Please send them a message if you want the spraying to end.

    Thanks...will do. I'd rather say "OUCH" to a fly bite than have my central nervous system go haywire down the road.

    This is not so funny....I just got back from was to be a wonderful walk in the park with Molly. That blasted DC-3 flew almost right over us...I couldn't tell if it was spraying or not. I have had it now! Don't mess with my dog.

    I got sprayed 3 times today. That big plane flies very low and scares the crap out of you. Now I'm worried about being mashed as well as poisoned.

    We have a patio on the roof (3rd story) of our home. Our property backs up to Camp Creek Golf Course and I was up on our roof checking out this huge tree eating machine that St. Joe was sending down the property line to clear room for a chain link fence :pissed: . (By-the-way, they cut about a 15 foot swath all along the southern Camp Creek Golf Course property line). My 14 month old was already upset because that monster machine was so loud. Suddenly that STUPID plane passed not more than 50 feet above us. It was spraying and I freaked out because I didn't want the baby sprayed and he freaked out because the plane was so loud! I have never heard such a scream of terror! I HATE that plane. It has been flying over every day for the past week.

    The first time I saw that plane was in Sept. 2001, right after we moved here and right after 9-11. It scared me to death--low flying plane that shouldn't be there. Not a good thing.

    CCk...and I thought coughing and itching from RT and being dive bombed by that basted plane were bad enough...now you tell me my landlord is cutting down trees for a FENCE? Bad karma day for sure.

    I'm starting to wonder why we come down here.

    What's going to kill me first? The red tide, the dive bombing DC-3, the sharks, the rip-tides, or the out-of-control seawall backwash :cool:

    Just another regular October, I guess!

    It does seem like we've got the whole "man vs. Nature" thing going on here. I can't think of any place I've ever lived where it seems like "Mother Nature" was so in control. Sometimes I understand why this area is one of the last parts of the Florida coast to be developed!!

    HOWEVER, I guess I'd rather be up against Nature than up against man-made hazards like terrorism, air pollution, car jackings, muggings, etc. I don't think there is a place on earth that is free from either natural or man-made hazards. In fact, places that SEEMED "safe" like New England are getting their share of the natural disasters lately.

    This is totally off the topic of the thread, but, yes. St. Joe is putting up a fence all around the golf course. I guess it is surprising that there isn't already one there. Seems they are having trouble with golfers sneaking up on the greens in the late afternoon and getting a few holes in before dark. I just hope they don't use barbed wire or anything like that.

    It was amazing to watch the machine cut the trees. It looked like a steamroller, and it pretty much ran right over the trees and cut them up as it went. I'm sad because we have all kinds of critters visit our home. We used to leave cat food out for a stray and I've seen several opposums and several racoons stealing the cat food. We also have had deer.

    All your poisons and traps are useless. You succeed only in killing yourselves. Humans will die and our kind will remain. We are of superior intelligence.

    I admit that we have, in the past, taken walks on the golf course. Those greens are heaven to little kids (especially SoWal kids who don't have yards or lawns). However, we haven't done it for about a year. I started getting creeped out thinking that St. Joe probably had cameras around recording our every move. Think I was paranoid?

    now you begin to understand why I moved 3 hours inland

    RANT MODE!

    up here there is no unfishable red tide, no unstoppable DC-3 spewing ridiculous poisons, no expensive and ultimately useless antigravity sand retaining walls holding back the inevitable, no salt air corrosion, no crazy beach idiots (except me), no tourists, no outdoor weddings and no crap - just horse flies and gigantic swamp mosquitoes and deer ticks and skyscraper pine trees and red sandy dirt and tons o' bugs and animals, bunches of plain ol' churchgoing rednecks and 3 huge 'compounds' belonging to unnamed 'media personalities' (all with huge fences and their own landing strips - including one that has supposedly fled the big city and relocated here for the apocalypse!), plenty of clean, deep fresh water lake to go around with no sharks or rips, just no white sand beach with those emerald waves (which I still miss, but is only 3 hours away!). I love the entire panhandle, but I would never live there full-time again. Instead, I will visit as often as possible, but only to the most secretive of secluded spots and I renew my promise to those who have found this nirvana like I did that I shall never trash it or tell about the location, except to say that I have to bring the boat.
    :D :razz: :D

    I think the Unabomber expressed some accurate thoughts of the future holds for us, but unfortunately, he took the wrong approach to getting people to read and understand his Manifesto.
    I doubt that many people other than the FBI read the entire Manifesto. Perhaps, if he wrote it as a book and went to a publisher, things would be different, and he would be no different than many other great writers.

    Now, where is that smilie of the Unabomber sitting beside himself?
