Mayor Bob Buckhorn gave his annual State of the City address Tuesday morning, announcing to a standing-room-only crowd that Tampa's made great progress under his administration, both by what it's destroying as well as creating.
Rita: Farming is a career that you have to love. You are married to a farm. You have to now work a job outside the farm, then come home and farm. You have to put all your money into the crops and only get paid at the end of the harvest year. No budgeting. Farming is a roll of the dice, will you have good growing season or not, will your cows be sick and die? Will it be a super dry year, with a corn crop that isn't worth harvesting? So many things can go wrong. So praise those who are farmers, that get up with the chickens and go to bed late.
