Column: Seminole Tribe orders mobile park residents to go

"Angry and scared, soon-to-be evicted residents of the Seminole Estates mobile home community took to the streets on Monday.

"I don't think we have much recourse," said Lois Marano, 79, a 40-year resident. "But we've got to try something."

So they tried a protest. They stood along State Road 7 just past 3 p.m., holding up signs and waving to cars headed to the Seminole Tribe's two casinos to the north.

"Don't support the Indian casinos," one sign read.

"Elderly being thrown out with nowhere to go!!" read another."
