The Latest Friends & Neighbors Content

Current Issue

 In this Edition

As we build our subscription base (33,000 plus), Friends & Neighbors wants all to know what we do is a real community effort. All of our columnists write on subjects that are not covered anywhere else in Martin County and do so as volunteers. Sheriff Snyder joined those ranks with his first column in this edition.

Our government coverage is based on our deep understanding of the issues. Over the years we have built up relationships with elected officials as well as government employees. This is how we can present so much in-depth reporting.

We try to be fair and have as many contrasting opinions as possible. Our only caveat is the pieces express a viewpoint but not be mean or hateful. I believe that is the way all news organizations should operate.

Commissioner Jenkins, who is not running for re-election, has chosen Friends & Neighbors to issue a challenge. Blake Capps, one of the candidates for his current seat has been vocal in speaking out against Rural Lifestyle and his being asked to resign from the LPA by Jenkins who appointed him. Harold wants to debate Mr. Capps’ on the issue. This column is something all of Martin County should read.

We report on the opening of the new CRA project, The Patio in Old Palm City. City Manager Mortell breaks down development in the city during a presentation to the commission. The School Board looks at next year’s budget items. Village Manager Kryzda informs us about Terra Lago, the new housing development currently under construction.

Let me issue my own challenge to 100 of our readers to give $10.00 by going to the section of the website and pulling out your credit card. Friends & Neighbors is an expensive endeavor that brings you what is important to know for the people of Martin County. We don’t cover daily murders or traffic accidents.  We do cover the government meetings that affect your quality of life and your pocketbooks through taxes.

Have a Happy Sunday Morning!
