By Bill Tiedje.
 
The final development plan for Deer Haven Estates, a six-lot planned unit development located 2.5 miles west of Colona off County Road 22, won approval by the Board of County Commissioners on Mar. 11. In its decision, the board rejected the planning commission recommendation that each lot include a cistern to store water for fire fighting.

Barry Foundation, the organization has achieved the financial stability it needs to cover its rent and focus on its purpose: feeding the county's hungry.
