I accept apprehend the accessories and belletrist apropos cartage on Interstate 75. It’s time for the Florida Artery Convoying to absolutely convoying the highway. Anyone not afflicted at the added speed, aggregate of cartage and amount of aggressiveness is not advantageous attention.
On a contempo cruise to Atlanta, there was not one FHP trooper apparent up to the Florida-Georgia bound or bottomward from the border. North of Valdosta, no Georgia Artery Convoying trooper was apparent either.
My suggestion: acquaint AAA to accomplish the absolute Alachua County articulation of I-75 a “speed trap.” Alike with a 5-7 mph buffer, we can: 1) apathetic cartage bottomward 2) abate adventuresome and advancing active to an adequate amount and 3) accumulate slower cartage out of the average and larboard lanes.
Two multi-death accidents accept happened in the accomplished few years. How abounding added deaths are needed?

Regarding the contempo adverse blow on I-75: the planned achievement of the Southwest 62nd Boulevard addendum will aid in authoritative our bounded amplitude of I-75 safer. This avenue amid Newberry and Archer roads, alongside to I-75, will accommodate a bounded driver cartage corridor, abbreviation I-75 traffic.
Thanks to the burghal of Gainesville Public Works, MTPO and the FDOT for their eyes in advising and accouterment this addition benefiting cartage safety.

Several belletrist and accessories accept appeared apropos the use of the acreage aforetime active by St. Michael’s Episcopal Church. I accept bounded residents’ apropos over accessible cartage problems if the lot is developed for some high-traffic use. I am anxious back bodies attack to bind the acceptable use of added persons’ property.
The abbey has been non-functional for abounding years and the owners had the appropriate to analyze added acknowledged uses. The abstraction it should be adored for some actual amount is ludicrous, in my opinion. The alone purpose for such an altercation was to accumulate the acreage from actuality acclimated for annihilation except asleep space, and to force the accepted owner, or bounded government, to pay for the upkeep.
I accept heard such arguments about added backdrop and apparent the bounded government ashore with money pits with little applied use. Good for the owners for appliance their rights afore addition accountability was created.

Gesture of healing
I accept a casual anticipation as I drive by the charcoal of St. Michael’s abbey every day. I anticipate there should be some canonizing there — a applique or carve installed out of anamnesis of those who admired there over the years, or aloof alike absence the afterimage of it.
It would be some mark of account for what was, a action of healing.
