Nice graph - But please ajakk, can you explain to me HOW this makes Morse any money other than the rental of the office space? I understand that you and Red and others don't like HOW they went about doing this but where is the money being put into the wrong hands? Please cite all sources for verification. Thanks.
As someone said back there aways, by selling more houses. It is just as simple as that.

I don't think there is a problem with them selling houses.

Jim McLaughlin our villages rep told us Sunday that they are selling between 200-300 homes a month and the population is at 80+K. He said that at buildout our population will be around 100K and predictions for buildout is in 2014.

Won't be long.

I have no problem with that. But by that logic you're saying that the cancer center is an asset that will draw people to sales. That would fly in the face of what many on this thread say about too many cancer facilities nearby.

If there is a money reason behind this I think it must still be other.

I know they'll make money on the leases of the building. Gut feeling says they'll make money renting the equipment to Moffitt. Absolutely no question that it is a great selling point to have a cancer center as pretigious as Moffitt on TV grounds and golf cart accessible. My thoughts have always been that it was more for the ego of saying it is on TV property than anything else. My gripe is with all the lies that have been presented to us, not with Moffitt per se (although I do think it is unnecessary and a colossal waste of money at the expense of those who believed the initial stories).

All of this gets me to wondering if the developer and the Daily Sun were again just having fun with us in the past when they reported that due to those nasty Buffalo biting all of the little fingers on that field near Sumter Landing, the Buffalo would have to be immediately (?????) Fortunately that large development project quickly followed on that land.

Really??? You got to be kidding me - he want us to fund the equipment but has no responsibility to inform us of the financial arrangment? Of course he has that responsibility, both morally and ethically. A reasonable and prudent person would not lay out capital for a business venture without knowing all pertinent financial arrangements. If you don't want to answer any questions, buy it yourself - but if you want me to help you buy it, you will give me full disclosure. From what I saw in the "newspaper", it seems that people are starting to put this puzzle together. The list of donors is getting shorter and shorter each week. Morse has run out of contractors who do business with him and probably had to donate to keep doing business, so the large donations appear to have dried up. The only thing he can't control here, open and free speech - what America is all about - is coming back to bite him.

My thought is if the Moffitt center affiliate doesn't come here, so what. We have the equally capable Robert Bouisinault (sp?) facility now and from their Daily Sun articles, there won't be anything new or better from Moffitt. They didn't get any money from TV either, but still managed to open the business.

In response to Midge538 observations, when we bought here in 2005 the development was quickly moving south of Sumter Landing and there were beautiful vistas of land, buffalo roaming, as well as the golf courses. I somehow got the idea that these areas of open greenspace were here to stay. WRONG. Now we see the developer coming back to these areas and putting houses wherever they can be crammed in. The beautiful vista of the Waterfront Inn as you travel down Buena Vista is gone. Stillwater Trail is now a corridor of walls. Soon walls block the Arnold Palmer course along 466. If this were all here when we came we would have kept moving on.

That is a radiation center. It is not a multidiscipline cancer center.

Save the keystrokes Gracie. You can say it (and we have) over and over again but somehow someone will bring that apples to oranges argument up again.
