BEARS IN FLORIDA?????

by doolemma

Yes, they have plenty of them. Every once in a while you will read about one getting hit by a car or truck. Usually that means that they didnot follow instructions and cross the road only at BEAR CROSSINGS.

City of Murals

"Controversial Art"

Lake Placid has a public art program where the community has encouraged the creation of a sizable number of public murals on various wall spaces around the town. As such, it proclaims itself as "the city of murals." Fine and good, but this mural created a large controversy when it was created. Some of the members of the town council were very displeased when they discovered that the mural depicts a violent crime. They felt that it was inappropriate for an artist to create images that portray unfavorable or untidy images of the past. Surely, they reason, art should celebrate the community's accomplishments, not show to all the world the subject of its shame. At least they have not whitewashed this painting out - not yet, at least.

"Cattlepunchers in Florida"

Not too many people realize that Florida has a long tradition of cattle-ranching. South central Florida actually looks a lot like places in Texas, and there are still many Texas-size farms near Lake Placid.
