So Local Pasco Podcast, June 20th, 2016. New Week, New Stuff Edition.

I feel like I should restate something, right here at the top…THEN we can move on:

I want to make sure folks know I welcome feedback, even when you disagree with my take on things.  I am not a journalist, which means sometimes I do take a side, and will continue to do so.  This does not mean that I am averse to hearing the other side of any issue, as long as we remain respectful, and don’t call anyone names.  I had a lot of feedback regarding my Friday podcast…ALL OF IT supported the idea that it would have been a good idea to 1)Acknowledge it was, indeed, an attack on the LGBT community, and 2) Invite someone from that community to speak…Or at least acknowledge the MANY members of that community who were present.

So, in an abundance of caution, this statement.  Happy to entertain a conversation about other views, have not received any yet, save from the organizers on the night of the vigil.  I just didn’t want anyone to think I am unwilling to air other voices.


GREAT TIME at Juneteenth, on Saturday!  I wish I had had more time to visit…I intend to be there ALL day next year…Only a studio emergency kept me away for longer.  Met some great folks, and was made to feel welcome.  The African American Club of Pasco holds an open house at the Booker T. Washington School EVERY Saturday, I’ll be dropping by, again!

The Booker T. Washington School was a segregated school for African American children. It was dormant, and then used in the 70s for elementary gifted education classes. It is having a third life as the home for the African American Club of Pasco County.

The photo doesn't do justice to the great crowd that came out for Juneteenth, I was so happy to be there!

Our milder temps Sunday and today are thanks to a weak cold front that passed over us late Saturday…Check out the water vapor image…Dark=dry, which is why it felt so nice out, Sunday afternoon!

A rare June Cool front gave us some very nice weather Sunday, and cool temps this morning, as well
