Good morning. It's Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

The headline of the day? House okays letting teachers have guns. "This is the sixth gun-related bill that we've done this session," said Rep. Lori Berman, a Lantana Democrat. "Meanwhile, background checks have not been discussed. It's no wonder Florida has the nickname the Gunshine State."

Florida's awful high school graduation rate used to be even worse.

One of the most-read stories right now on is essentially a brief about that Trader Joe's opening in Tampa more than a month ago. Why?

A woman in Gainesville used her car to ram her husband's tractor and a guy in Sarasota threw a bucket of pee on a code inspector. But remember. Remember! "... strange things and heinous crimes can happen anywhere."
