  1. With Vegas in mind, officers conduct active shooter training at Tampa International Airport

    Public Safety

    TAMPA — Black marked the dead.

    After everyone ran away and was cleared out, two people remained on the ground, playing dead between baggage carousels nine and 10. Firefighters tied black ribbons around their wrists during triage, a quick way to tell other first responders not to waste time on them. Luggage …

  2. Dirk Koetter, not Jameis Winston, has to make the call


    “Touchdown” Tom Jones, the best Bucs columnist in town, htook it to the house Tuesday when he wrote that Jameis Winston should do the right thing and take a seat if he’s not perfectly healthy to play at Buffalo.

    Whether Jameis Winston plays Sunday or not is Dirk Koetter's call.

    Call me when the Warriors win, Martin Fennelly writes.
  5. It's time for the Dodgers to be back in the World Series


    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 29 years since the Los Angeles Dodgers made the World Series. That’s far too long. I still remember being at Chavez Ravine for the 1988 World Series, watching Kirk Gibson homer into the right field stands to beat the Oakland A’s in Game 1.

    Been a long …
