Nicole and Joe Naugler are facing charges in a case that has prompted an outcry on social media from supporters of their family's "off-the-grid" lifestyle. Neighbor Travis Metcalf isn't buying it. "They're living underneath tarps," he said. "So kinda take it at that."

It's a question worth asking, and far more important to public health than headline-grabbing measles and whooping cough outbreaks. But don't hold your breath, because the real answer may say more about the nature of modern illness than most mainstream medical "experts" would care to consider.

The first step in fighting poverty is understanding the struggle of the poor, according to the organization charged with leading that fight in Manatee County.

That's why the Manatee Community Action Agency is starting a program aimed at giving those who want to make a difference a crash course on what it means to be poor. The MCAA will hold a Life on the Edge workshop and panel discussion March 18 at First Baptist Church Family Life Center. It's the starting point of a $20,000 anti-poverty initiative paid for by federal stimulus funds.
