Osceola County – On October 3, Osceola County Sheriff's deputies responded to Liberty High School located at 4250 Pleasant Hill Road in Kissimmee.
Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the victim who indicated he was on the field refereeing a sophomore league football game for the Central Florida Athletic Association.
A call was made that upset several parents and coaches and they began arguing about it on the field. One of the coaches, identified as Leo Davis, struck the referee in the face before leaving the area.
The referee sustained minor injuries. Several other witnesses corroborated the referee's story.
Deputies were able to locate Davis as he attempted to leave the school driving his vehicle at a high rate of speed. Deputies took Davis into custody and he told them he pushed the referee in an attempt to separate individuals who were fighting.
A witness had the incident recorded (see video below) and after deputies viewed the video, they determined it contradicted Davis' account of the incident.
Yes, vacation was terrific and we've all come home with recharged batteries! So, here we go.
While so many Osceola taxpayers, (that's the ones paying the bills) continue to scratch their heads over UNemployed Commissioner Mike Harford's trip to China, we must also
question how on Earth he was able to repay a several hundred thousand dollar debt, without reporting it on his financials! We also wonder how many of his financials are true and correct or simply hurriedly filed without thought. In previous financials, Mr. Harford reported a very large debt and his income was 'only' his commission salary, so again, how on earth was he able to (1) pay down his debt completely on only his county salary, and (2), why hasn't it been reported CORRECTLY in his own financial reports? So what, you might ask, but we're just curious how/why he reported the debt, and then files the next financial report without showing the debt or any means of paying the debt off. This just makes us wonder what else may, or may not is being reported!
The City of Saint Cloud's ruling bosses have clearly shown that not one of them know how to read their own budget! Their behavior at the Council meeting displayed complete confusion, frustration for the city's workforce, and bewilderment by the audience attending the meeting.
First, the city council, weeks ago, tried to float a fire fee (tax) past the taxpayers. When it came time for a decision, that allegedly sorely needed fire fee was scrapped! After regrouping, ALL the city council members stated the only other things to do would be: 1. to lay off close to a hundred employees 2. raise property taxes to cover the budget shortage, which every single council member agreed the shortage was there!
