...... food & beverage service on the championship golf courses.
diabetics must eat regularly . . hot dogs, ham/turkey/tuna sandwiches on rye or whole grain. Even if it were only availalble at the turn would be great!


....... restroom facilities on the SE side of Spanish Springs (near the radio station) :beer2:

It would be nice to have a major league spring training facility or a minor league franchise with a stadium like Roger Dean in Jupiter.

1. Real security gates for each Village.
2. Daily Sun would report both good and bad news.
3. Longer Happy Hours in the Village Centers
4. A real Country Club for members only.
5. A Fine Arts Center that would seat more than the Savannah Center.
6. A couple of quiet upscale intimate dinning restaurants.
7. Better designed traffic circles.
8. Public transportation.

These are a few of the things that I would like to see.

I agree that all the commercial stores that have been mentioned would be fine. Can I add that they be outside the village confines such as the Buffalo Ridge area?? (new Walmart's, Golden Corral area)
Sweetbay's location is fine but I would not like to see a deli on the corner of Canal and O'Dell please ;D
Jus thinkin outloud :dontknow:

I heard that there were some letters for voting for Hillary Clinton printed in the Villages Daily Sun today? :dontknow: I am in shock. The VDS does not strike me as being a paper with a Democratic slant.

You see a lot of Ann Coulter's stuff in other words in the VDS. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_Coulter
