Tampa family uses Facebook in search for murder suspect

Between an ad about a superfood that can melt fat and a list of things only '80s girls can understand sat a different Facebook post: an aunt asking people to help find the man police believe killed her niece.

Cathy Stone explained that Edly Atherley, 29, is on the FBI's Most Wanted list in connection with the Nov. 30, death of his wife, Ashley, a Bloomingdale High graduate, in San Bernadino, Calif.

Stone explained that Atherley frequents gyms and may be working as a personal trainer.

An uncommon post for sure, but I would post every day if it were my niece. …

The big question after the revealing story Sunday about the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young's "first family" by the Tampa Bay Times' Andrew Meacham: Will it impact the election to fill his seat? It could hurt David Jolly's chances. …

Seen on a bumper sticker: Truth Is The New Hate Speech. …

The latest episode of the Cooking Channel's Emeril's Florida features two Tampa residents: Chef BT Nguyen of Restaurant BT and Leto High student Guillermo Quezada, winner of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association's 2013 top high school chef competition.

The episode debuted Sunday and airs again at 9:30 a.m. today and 11:30 a.m. Thursday. …

New Bucs coach Lovie Smith will make the team a winner, but even better he'll restore the civic pride the team emanated under former coach Tony Dungy.

A commercial showing a car ramping into the air and landing on a moving train comes with a disclaimer that it's fantasy and shouldn't be tried at home. Good thing because I was just about to try to land my car on the Amtrak that runs through Seffner.

That's all I'm saying.
