Crist Visits Conservation Center

February 17th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist toured the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center near Monticello this morning.

Media Mogul Ted Turner and his son lease the property to the state for virtually nothing, then made improvements to the land so city kids can learn to fish and hunt. Governor Charlie Crist went 2 for 3 hitting a target with a bow and arrow. Afterwards he praised the Turners for making kids dreams come true.

We live in the most beautiful state, in my humble opinion, in the country, Crist said. So many good things are going on in challenging times. A lot of good things still continue to happen. I was just talking to Beau and Ted about how we gotta keep doing smart things, we gotta keep doing good things, and weve gotta promote this great state that offers so much to so many.

Crist also took a few shots at some clay pigeons today. And While he may be know as Chain Gang Charley, he will never be know as shot gun Charlie.
