Q: I'm 46, dating a man who's 14 years older than I am. We were friends for years and years, when we were both married, and always liked each other enormously. He got divorced, and then later I did, and an affectionate friendship deepened until it was love. Which is great! And we're happy! And we're good for each …
The St. Petersburg City Council's dispiriting discussion this week failed to break the unproductive stalemate over a new stadium for the Tampa Bay Rays and redevelopment of the Tropicana Field site. But it was not a total loss. The rambling conversation revealed the lack of vision and sophistication of half of the …
We haven't had one since 2005, but throughout Florida's history — or at least since meteorologists started keeping track — hurricanes have been a part of the state's identity. "It only takes one storm to change the landscape of a community," said Aaron Gallaher, communications director for the Florida …
Sorry to ruin your day, but starting Monday the fate of nearly 20 million Floridians will be in the hands of the 160 members of the Florida Legislature, which is a bit like relying on a shark for swimming lessons.
On Dec. 6, 1947, President Harry Truman was in Florida to celebrate the end of a 30-year struggle and to warn us about the future.
A Thursday OTA that began with the Bucs' first overall draft choice absent ended with one of its 1,000-yard receivers out of commission as well.
WR Mike Evans exited in the waning stages of Thursday's non-padded workout with an apparent right hamstring injury, but Coach Lovie Smith didn't seem fazed afterward. Evans injured his left hamstring during the first OTA last year and missed an extended period of summer work.
"My hammy is even a little sore right now. You get through it," Smith said. "You say he tweaked it last (summer), how did he do this past year? Pretty well (1,051 yards, 12 TDs), so it's not something we're concerned about at all. He tweaked it a little bit; he'll be fine."
Also nursing a sore hamstring is second-round draft choice Ali Marpet, who didn't participate. The offensive lineman from Division III Hobart attended Thursday's workout, albeit in a baseball cap. His fellow second-round pick, Donovan Smith, logged some second-team reps at left tackle.
"Offseason, every day I'm gonna talk about a little tweak, and that's about all it is. Eventually they'll get back."...
From the Associated Press:
Slot machines could be coming to several Florida dog and horse tracks if a far-reaching court ruling holds.
A Florida appeals court Friday ordered state regulators to award a license for slot machines to a north Florida facility located west of the state Capitol.
The First District Court of Appeal ruled by a 2-1 margin that the state improperly denied a slot machine license to a horse track located in Gretna in Gadsden County.
The court said the license should have been granted because Gadsden voters approved a referendum authorizing slots.
The ruling could have a wide impact because voters in several other counties including Lee, Brevard and Palm Beach have approved similar referendums.
State regulators had turned down the slot machine request due to a legal opinion by Attorney General Pam Bondi....
