Manatee County Food Bank shelves bare, donations vital

After shopping at a local Publix Wednesday, I felt it necessary to make a plea to the citizens of Manatee County.

Being a daily reader of the Herald and a subscriber for a half century, I reflected back on Ms. Gazell’s previous opinion submissions. I realized right away that my opinions on nearly everything are diametrically opposite hers.
