Looking for a great review of 2015?

Check out one of my favorite blogger/reporter's list.

St. Petersburg, FL
Opinion by: E. Eugene Webb PhD
Author: In Search of Robin
 From saintpetersblog, Janelle Irwin's Top St. Pete Headlines 2015

My favorite headline from 2015?

It has to be from the Tampa Bay Times: Failure Factories. You can go to the online edition and search "Failure Factories" to see the continuing series of articles.

Nothing in the local news touched me any more than these articles. To think that as a community, we could let something like this happen brings tears to my eyes.

In typical "shoot the messenger type reactions" members of the Pinellas County School Board and others have accused the Times of grandstanding for a Pulitzer. The fact simply is that the people we elected to the School Board let everyone in Pinellas County down by deliberately causing this situation to happen.

Putting a glaring spotlight on the problem and those responsible was the right thing to do.

When election time comes around, be sure you make your vote for school board members count.
