I Registered for the Synapse Innovation Summit


Which is to be held Jan. 23-24 at the Amalie Center in Tampa.  There will be 300 speakers, 5000 attendees and 300 exhibitors in the realms of virtual reality, AI, robotics, health advancements and more.   I printed special business cards talking about what we have to offer in the way of 360, 3D & VR big cats and then made a hat with the same info on it to make the most of my time there. 


Today Howie wrote our Commissioner, Kimberly Overman:


Kimberly thanks for spending time with me on the phone this week.  Attached is an aerial showing the location of the apartments that may be seeking approval at some point.


One possible issue with the land is that the owner of one of the parcels brought in massive amounts of dirt to raise the low portion of the property, possibly without a permit, and with no regard for the resulting water flow to our property. The second enclosed document shows this.


We are meeting with the developer and their engineer next Thursday and my hope is that they will be willing to seriously seek to address our concerns in their plan.  Those concerns include water flow to our property, securing the common perimeter with an additional wall to deter people, particularly youths, from entering our property, having the buildings far enough from the wall that children could not shoot paintballs or worse at the cats from the tall building windows, and provisions in land records and leases that preclude owners or residents to objecting to our presence.


The address of the main parcel is:  8610 Gonzalez Lake Dr,  Tampa, FL 33625-3764


I will keep you posted on the results of our discussion with the developer.  Thanks very much!  - Howard Baskin


I wish I had noted the time frame when Cuesta, the hog farm owner, was doing all that filling.  I think it was around the time that we were building Vacation Rotation because my dad was having a fit over the amount of water that was being diverted onto our property in that area.  


Hi, I’m Carole Baskin and I’ve been writing my story since I was able to write, but when the media goes to share it, they only choose the parts that fit their idea of what will generate views.  These are my views and opinions. If I'm going to share my story, it should be the whole story.  The titles are the dates things happened. If you have any interest in who I really am please start at the beginning of this playlist: http://savethecats.org/


I know there will be people who take things out of context and try to use them to validate their own misconception, but you have access to the whole story.  My hope is that others will recognize themselves in my words and have the strength to do what is right for themselves and our shared planet.
