As Gov. Rick Scott points to the 1.6 million jobs added to Florida’s economy during his tenure, three dozen mostly rural counties in the state report having fewer jobs than they did in 2007, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times.

The report focuses on Jackson County, about 60 miles west of Tallahassee, which has lost more than 1,600 jobs and where more people ‘ 23 percent in all ‘ live below the poverty line than before Scott took office in 2010.

Our state has a combination of leaking septic tanks and fertilizers seeping into our water from lawns, from dairy farms, and from sugar farms.  

Break.

Lake Okeechobee naturally flowed south into the Everglades. But nearly a hundred years ago, our government built a dike around it to prevent flooding for people who moved near the lake. The dike redirects the lake flow east into the Atlantic and west into the Gulf of Mexico.  Meanwhile, towns and sugar farms filled in to the south.
