I know, Florida & Golf just go together. So it is great news to hear that one of our local courses is named to Golf Digest’s Top 50 clubs with the best players. Apparently Grasslands landed at #16 in Florida. That’s a great honor for one of Lakeland’s own. Congratulations Grasslands. For more information here is the press release.
If you are an AIG policyholder, I understand that you may be concerned by recent news about American International Group, holding company for AIG Annuity and AIG SunAmerica.
As you may have seen, the holding company has experienced a significant drop in stock price and has been downgraded by the rating agencies.
In light of this news, I would like to remind you that your assets are actually invested through a subsidiary of the public company. This is important because insurance policies written by the underlying AIG companies are direct obligations of those regulated insurance companies. These companies are well capitalized and meet or exceed regulatory capital requirements. These companies continue to operate in the normal course to meet obligations to policyholders.
This is a very unusual situation, which I continue to monitor carefully as it evolves. If you have questions or concerns about your policy, please contact me at 863-686-6600.
Thank You and Have a Great Day,

Here is a clip from the Ledger editorial :
Both presidential candidates have been invited as well. “Who knows?” said Roberts of the possibility that one – or both – might show up. He was hopeful, pointing out that Polk County is in the middle of the all-important Interstate 4 corridor, that Lakeland is in the middle of middle America and that the city’s skyline provides an attractive backdrop for a television sound bite.
It is rumored that a major candidate is coming, but I have no conformation yet. I will let you know if anything is confirmed. If the the Obama or McCain campaigns are listening, we are ready and waiting.
Read the full editorial for more information.
