Is Hillsborough's proposal
for a homeless shelter "half-baked"?

In the opinion of the St. Petersburg Times, it has become increasingly clear why Hillsborough County has the worst homeless problem of any county in Florida.

"Just a week after derailing a thoughtful, detailed plan by Catholic Charities for a homeless camp east of Tampa, the County Commission's follow-up amounted to a half-baked idea from Commissioner Kevin White, who proposed creating a homeless shelter in an office park on the north side of town. Hillsborough needs a sound approach, not political stunts, to address its homeless problem."
