Dennis and Vannessia Harvey and their teenage son have settled in to the Golden Gate house that was in foreclosure and sorely neglected until H.O.M.E. purchased and refurbished it for resale to qualified buyers like the Harveys. John Barlow, the businessman whose commitment to providing affordable housing by rehabilitating foreclosed singlefamily homes inspired the development of H.O.M.E., Inc., predicts that by summer, 12 more houses will be ready for sale to people working in service industries in Collier County. We have competed the purchase of three additional foreclosed houses, and work should begin on renovations later this month, Mr. Barlow said, adding all three homes are in Golden Gate.

Although few people now living along the Gulf coast ever lay hands on a cow, or build the fence necessary to contain one, or do the calving, raising, sorting, marking, branding, or selling of cows, we remain wedded to them. We eat them, we watch them, and we two-step, if you will, with the economics of them. Where cows appear, a landowner (commonly somebody whose closest proximity to a cow is a lease agreement to let them graze) is required to pay only a small percentage of the property taxes that would otherwise be levied on the land. So the rest of us pay more to maintain our level of government services. There is good reason for that, tax experts and cattlemen point out: We need food, preferably our own American-raised beef, and farming and ranching should be encouraged.E 30,000144 ... its whats for dinner somewhere else... number of beef cows raised in Collier and Lee counties.
