Osceola County -This morning at approximately 3:10 a.m., Osceola County Sheriff's deputies received information a student who attends Gateway High School possibly made bomb threats on social media. After further investigation, deputies were able to identify Dinoshka Colon, 16 as the student. They made contact with Colon and her mother at their residence. Colon cooperated with the investigation and told deputies she posted on Twitter, statements indicating a bomb threat at Gateway High School because she was angry and did not want to go to school.
As a precaution, deputies searched Gateway High School but found nothing suspicious. Prior to school beginning, deputies cleared the scene and there was no disruption to normal school activities.
Based on Colon's statements, she was arrested and charged with False Report of a Bomb, a second degree felony. She was booked into the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center.
Dinoshka Colon (DOB 10/26/98) 202 Coral Reef Circle, Kissimmee

Osceola County Wants to Hear from You!
Osceola County, Florida – As part of the process to develop a new strategic plan, Osceola County is inviting residents to take a few minutes to complete a survey to help shape the county’s future.
“We really want to hear from citizens as we move forward,” said Commission Chairman Brandon Arrington. “More data will help connect us to our citizens as we make policy decisions that impact our community now and in the future.”
Feedback on the services we provide, and the services that citizens value the most will help the Board of County Commissioners make decisions on priorities over the next several years. All responses are anonymous.
Links to the survey are available on the County website (http://www.osceola.org) and on the County Library website (http://www.osceolalibrary.org)
Well, congratulations are in order to Osceola's top government officials as Osceola has now become a laughing stock across several states, including Kentucky, Alabama, North & South Carolina, and of course, throughout the state of Florida. Now, we're only counting the people we've heard from and saw on the tube. Orange County's Mayor Jacobs simply smiled and could offer no comment when asked about Osceola County becomming the highest taxed county in Central Florida. And, we also have heard that the lone Republican voting against the added gas tax was looking out for the taxpayers. Well, not so fast. Mr. Hawkins knows very well how to count and he could certainly count to 4, as in 4 Democratic commissioners voting FOR the added tax. We believe it was the easiest way out for Hawkins who has his sights set on higher office.(and a lifetime pension) What truly troubles us is the way each of the 4 aye votes tried to explain their own incompetency.
It will take a Super Majority to approve the measure and we believe ALL 4 DEMOCRATS will vote FOR the added nickel tax. We have told you all several times that Mr Harford and Mr Arrogance, Arrington have never seen a tax or fee they didn't like! Well folks, hold on because they will stick you with an additional nickel gas tax and will come back for more in the form of the sales tax probably at the end of summer to early Fall!
Why? Because the Osceola County Board of County Commissioners did away with impact fees, taking care of their buddies. They also ALL FAILED to plan for little Brandon's choo choo train! Now, YOU will have to pay off the BOCC debts from their past few years of spending like drunk sailors on shore leave! Not only that, they continue to spend money they do NOT have and obligate future income before it's collected! Come on Osceola County, get PISSED at these clowns! Anyone voting FOR this tax MUST BE DEFEATED in the next elections they're involved in!!
We'll be back with more on Saturday! Gotta go out and buy up the vaseline supplies in the county!!!
