Emily Stallard wasn’t about to stand in long Walmart check out lines, or fight with the self-checkout robots. She had no intention of paying for the items she grazed off the shelves. Why bother? The items she added to her cart on Saturday were all the ingredients needed to build and detonate a potentially deadly …

Florida residents have a new pest to worry about. The New Guinea Flatworm has made its way into the Orange State – Florida, and it doesn’t look good for the families in the Florida area. The arrival of these pests spells danger for our pets as well as the humans affected. The New Guinea Flatworm …

Just days before the election, Kaine was forced to cancel an event in Florida. While Kaine had left no reason for the cancellation and virtually walked out, it was painfully obvious what happened. Although the event is still listed on the Hillary Clinton’s campaign website, the page reads, “This event has been cancelled. Please accept …

Disneyland has a long list of do’s and dont’s, I had no idea most of these even existed. Could make for a not so “magical’ time if you get caught. Having been to Disneyland many times, I can say with full certainty that not all of these rules are enforced but some are pretty funny and …

SOUND OFF: Should the officer have lost his job, or did his superiors make more of it than what it is?

On those rare days we are denied a choice “Florida man” story, the occasional “Florida woman” comes along…

McCarty had previously told family members ‘”I will snap my babies’ necks and take them with me when I kill myself.”

The column “Free Speech does not threaten gun ownership” (Aug. 3) by Howard L. Simon of the ACLU is a smokescreen. Twice now federal judges have ruled that the so-called “Docs & Glocks” law does not violate First Amendment free speech rights of doctors and medical personnel. The law stops pediatricians and other physicians from …

For the second time in little more than a year, a federal appeals court Tuesday upheld a controversial Florida law that restricts doctors from asking questions and recording information about patients’ gun ownership.

Edward Kelty, a 17-year-old driver from — wait for it — Florida, has been charged with attempted murder after running over a police officer while fleeing a traffic stop.

It has been nearly two years since a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Officer shot an unarmed Dontrell Stephens, but dashcam video has finally emerged from the incident. After the shooting, which occurred in Sept. 2013 and left Stephens paralyzed from the waist down, Deputy Adam Lin was cleared to return to work four days later. …

In another fine example of the Florida educational system failing its residents, three men and a woman were severely stung by bees in New Port Richey while trying to steal honey from a hive, as if they were auditioning for the live action Winnie the Pooh movie. These three men attempted to climb a tree …

Former pastor Joshua Feuerstein wanted to test something out amid the controversy this week over religious freedom and business rights. He figured if business owners should be compelled not to discriminate against homosexuals, then businesses should also be compelled not to discriminate against anti-gay Christians. And so, on video, he recorded a phone conversation he …

It’s a new anti-gun advertisement produced by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s astroturf propaganda efforts, Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Bloomberg’s attempt to sell Floridians magical elixirs to keep them safe amounts to little more than wishful thinking, wild imagination and frankly, snake oil. Rather …

On August 23 2014, an 89-year-old World War II veteran grabbed an armed robber’s gun, then pulled out his own gun and wrestled with the suspect before shooting him six times. The veteran, Arthur M. Lewis, was working at his Lake Park, Florida, jewelry store around 3 p.m when Lennard Patrick Jervis allegedly entered the …
