This initiative does nothing to reduce waste. It just requires more energy be spent on the waste we already have, so we'll need more power plants if this type of solution is adopted widely.

As a vet who's been to both hospitals I welcome this change. Both hospitals are excellent, but driving to Tampa is a breeze on the Veterans Parkway.

I'd be fine with paying teachers more, but not unless they base the extra money on performance. Should be easy enough to tell how much each student improves over the school year. The school system will not improve or be cost effective until we reward better teachers and dismiss poor ones.

I always enjoy a news piece where the reporter tries to state who said what and what both sides of any dispute are. Nice work, Chronicle.

As far as the dispute itself, I tend to side with the owner of the property. There better be a good reason when the government denies a property own…

As someone who regularly drives on the northern stretch of the Parkway, I'm always pleased by how empty it is. Extending it further north would seem a lot of money for little effect, but it's better than a lot of other ways the state and feds waste money, for example, bullet trains.
