Wile E. was over 14 years old, a fine old age for a big dog. He was my best friend and as much aRead More part of me as my right arm. I want to thank all of my friends and neighbors in Seminole Heights for their out pouring of love - you wouldn't think people would care so much about someone losing their dog but this is one of the things I love about this neighborhood.

Nick's family has had Nicko's for over 30 years and we have been happy to go there since they firstRead More opened. Mr. Liakos (Jojo) was always so nice, coming by the table to say "hi" and talk with us. His whole family (and the "Nickos family") are one of the many reasons we keep coming back. He will really be missed by everyone. Eric and Ellen

We have been frequent customers at Nicko's for about 30 years and live only 3 blocks from the diner.Read More They have the best food for the best prices in Tampa. We will miss Mr Liakos' smile and seeing him at the diner. I know the family is very close and he will be missed most by his family members. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.

I was a county commission reporter at the time Fred Karl, who had already retired as a Supreme CourtRead More justice, agreed to come out of retirement and help out Hillsborough County at a time when growth and, unfortunately, graft were rampant. I was, frankly, in awe of this guy who'd been an Army tank commander at the Battle of the Bulge, a state legislator and Supreme Court justice. But during his first week on the job, he lumbered into the press room at County Center, introduced himself in that gosh-darn manner his and then asked what he could do to help us. My Trib co-worker, the late Jim Sloan, and I were stunned. No one at the county had ever made that kind of gesture. Through the years I knew him, Fred was always friendly, accessible and a true gentleman. We need more more public servants like him.

If your going to rant your liberal BS at least get your facts straight! The general was a trueRead More American....something you obviously know nothing about! Even if he was the general that led the invasion of Iraq he would have been following orders.

I think you have your wars mixed up. You are displaying your ignorance to the public.

Liberalist views are undoubtedly from individuals whom have never served either in the armed forcesRead More or in a public service manner (police, fire etc).
