We're sorry to let you know that Osceola County School Board member, Tom Greer, suffered a heart attack sometime last night and is in critical condition in an area hospital. We're told he may be facing bypass surgery.

Both Jo Thacker, the County Attorney, and Kathy Wall, the County Auditor displayed more class than anyone has in a very long time when they both requested their contracts with the County be rebewed with no salary increases. Both cited their enjoyment in working at the County level and both expressed a deep level of concern for all County residents as we ALL go through this recession period.
