|[Ohio Key Tower Height Increase] Telecommunication tower known as “RSSC Ohio Key” In February of 2022, Lotis was informed that the above mentioned telecommunication tower’s height will be increased from a 87’ monopole telecommunications tower to a 115’ monopole telecommunications tower. Lotis has determined that the increase in tower height is considered to be a substantial increase, therefore has determined that consultation efforts must be re-initiated providing consulting parties the opportunity to revise their initial responses (or lack of responses).
The increase in height did not change our initial determination of effect, but would like to inform you and provide documentation of our additional review for your review and records. Should you wish to revise your previous response or lack of response please notify us within 30 days of the date of this email. If no response has been received we will assume that no further consultation is required.
Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please respond to this email chain so that we may respond as quickly and accurately as possible. Braden@thelotisgroup.com
So what if I don’t know what Armageddon means, it’s not the end of the world!
|[Listen To The Music] Terrific editing to include people around the world singing and playing this great song. Performed by musicians around the world. If you are a fan of The Doobie Brothers then you might recognize several band members who are featured in this music video. Video|
|[Rice Bran Oil is Nasty Stuff] For starters, it’s highly processed and refined, much like other vegetable oils such as grapeseed oil and canola. Studies show that regular consumption of ultra-processed foods, such as rice bran oil, may be associated with a higher risk of certain types of cancer, including breast cancer. According to a recent 2019 study in JAMA Internal Medicine, a 10 percent increase in consumption of ultra-processed foods was linked to a 14 percent higher risk of death among middle-aged adults. Additionally, many people wonder: is rice bran oil high in omega-6? While it does contain a good amount of monounsaturated fats and omega-9 fatty acids, it is also high in omega-6 as well. Consuming excess amounts of omega-6 can lead to inflammation, which can contribute to chronic conditions such as heart disease and cancer.|
|[Texting] 17 reasons why I don’t like texting. This morning I found 17 disgusting messages. Racist and sexist rantings. Gmail would have put them automatically into Spam and I wouldn’t have had to deal with them.|
|[Vaccines Can Impact Mammograms] Enlargement of lymph nodes in the armpit is a normal reaction to the COVID vaccine in rare cases, and nothing to worry about. When seen on mammograms, the enlarged nodes related to the vaccine have the potential to be mistaken for signs of breast cancer or other diseases such as lymphoma. The enlarged nodes may cause additional testing, sometimes even biopsies – and therefore, unnecessary stress and anxiety.|
|[Captain Doom and Gloom] Fair housing is BS housing. It’s a scam for low rent real estates to make money. People work all their lives to get up the ladder and have a nice home and family then have to put up with low rent trash and useless eaters sponsored by some holy roller greedy kick back drone demanding you share your hood with this garbage. The Keys are being done this way to force out the old locals and grab these islands for future development of plastic resort communities. Don’t let it happen.|
[Sculpture] The most amazing sculptures in the world. Link

[Lazy Workers] “Do not stack” and “This side up” are a waste of ink.
|[Judgmental] “Your type is the problem not the safe driver” This reply about safe speeds posted demonstrates the bent mind set of the writer who is obviously a demented woman driver and probably incompetent! This blog is getting input from illogical drones and Ed cannot see it any longer. [Editor: Au contraire mon ami.]|
|[“God endorses slavery”] Why not write the truth about slavery throughout time? Seems the people need to know who were slaves and who were masters and that race had little to do with it.
For thousands of years slaves were any people the army captured.
|[How Do You Say Oklahoma] There is a right way and a wrong way to pronounce Oklahoma. If you say “OK LAHOMA” you’re wrong. The proper way is “OKLA HOMA”. There’s a gap between the ‘a’ and the ‘h’. I can prove it.|
