With the very high percentage of elderly living here, I am at a loss to find a telephone number orRead More location of services specific to the elderly in Pinellas County! Where is Adult Protect6ive Services? Where is Elder Care? I spent the better part of two hours yesterday trying to find any services for these folks! Where is the Consumer Protection Agency? Why, when I call any 'official' number to locate anything, I get a menu, am put on hold for too long a time, shuffled from number to number or person to person or nothing intelligent at all. I attended a senior expo at the Coliseum the other day and was surprised to find venders only and NO representatives from ANY agency, county, city, state, nor federal! Where were they? Can anyone explain any of this? I am at 388.1612 here in Pinellas.

As a recent graduate of PCU, I highly recommend you take the 10 weeks and fly with all the newRead More knowledge and understanding you come away with. So many fascinating students you make the journey with, and the facilitators are top notch. And a bargain at the price.

These people are clueless when it comes to parenting.

There are numerous sides to most stories. I happen to know both biological parents and they eachRead More have their own issues. I don't know why the boyfriend is calling himself the child's father though, as he's not even the step father. I also know the mother abandoned her 2 children for 9 months to be with Mr. Millard in GA while she was married to Mr. Handing. Now there's a third child courtesy of Mr. Millard (not the child referenced in this arrest). Also worth mentioning I know first-hand that the 'drug addict' biological father is in recovery and remaining clean & sober. I am aware there are many more details of this families troubles AND strengths and this is why there will be and should be a fair hearing. Also, no worries about Mr. Millard's attorney, they qualify for a public defender.

Also worth mention: Mr. Handing was not told about any of this and found out via Facebook, AFTER theRead More mother took his kids and left the state.
