For Global Poverty & a Healthy Southwest!

by Kirsten Harrington


Whoever thought that eating a Southwest Breakfast Pizza or sipping a hazelnut latte in Orlando would help orphans in Ethiopia?

More Development in Dr. Phillips

by Debra Wood


Developers are planning to transform the former Yogi Bear Campground into Eden Springs Resort, a high-density apartment complex with commercial space, and have already obtained a land-use change to the county’s Comprehensive Plan.

Neighbors in Bay Vista Estates, Sand Lake Cove and other subdivisions have expressed concern on social media regarding the addition of a high-density project on the lakefront site, including where the children living in the apartments would attend school and the traffic the project would generate.
