But now that those mines are playing out, the company has spent the past 20 years working toward opening or expanding mines in Manatee, Hardee and DeSoto counties.

For instance, it applied for a state permit for the DeSoto mine in 2014, winning approval from the Department of Environmental Protection in 2017.

Let me just say that during the course of my career as city manager, we’ve had a lot of good things. I have probably dealt with 150 to 200 projects when it comes to roads and buildings and structure, or infrastructure. I have probably been responsible for staff dealing with in excess of a billion dollars. We have gone through a remaking of Columbus, Ga., in the last 11 years since I’ve been city manager.

Given what we know about adolescent brain development, and given that the Supreme Court has held that children are different for constitutional purposes, we should return to the default of keeping kids in juvenile court. Even in such a regime, a judge could still determine that extraordinary circumstances warranted transfer to adult court. But those rare, outlier cases should not dictate the norm for juveniles.

The interface is really quite easy to use; in fact navigation is much like the iPod Nano. A swipe down activates the built in 1.9 megapixel camera, a swipe up takes you back to the previous screen. Swiping side to side from the main clock face brings you through settings, apps, the photo gallery, voice memos, and the ability to use Samsung’s S voice.
