U.K. vote to leave EU Union.  only England has voted to leave the EU.  Scotland voted to stay in the EU.  Prime Minister resigns.  Negotiations will take 2 years, but a reversal is very unlikely. Global markets sell off shortly after initial voting results.  


Prayers and condolences to the families of the victims.

It amazes me that someone will automatically state that if someone had a gun there would be less victims. First stupid part of that statement is "less victims". Secondly, many of these comments come from people that don't have a lot of experience in firing a weapon or have never been in a fire fight. Just because you have a gun doesn't mean you would be successful in stopping someone intent in killing a group of people. Even policemen who have protective gear and trained in these situations are sometimes wounded or killed. Third, these people automatically speak out against gun control and laws. The aim in establishing good gun control laws is to eliminate the ability of such incidents from taking place. People should be able to go to places without the need to be armed or the worry of such incidents occurring.

It took 11 police officers firing their weapons to take down this shooter. So 1 good man with a gun would have been more effective (sarcasm).

Victims of Orlando Shooting

Initial reports indicated both sides of the Causeway would be shut down to allow Bayflite to transport a patient. However, westbound lanes are currently open, although motorists are advised to find alternate routes for the "foreseeable future." Eastbound traffic remains closed and is being diverted at McMullen Booth Road. The crash happened on the Clearwater side of the Causeway, near the small or first bridge. One patient is being taken to St. Joseph's Hospital.

The first case of ebola breakout was discovered many years ago. It was determined that they had contracted the virus from monkeys, which they would kill for food. The ebola was restricted to the Congo and was a cyclical event. Due to the poor water and food sources the villagers used alternative protein sources such as monkeys. The source of ebola can be isolated to primates, apes and bats. Because of the outbreak in the new regions, the question of whether the climate changes has caused species such as the bats or monkeys to migrate to these other areas.

A USF professor says you have a better chance of getting killed by a wrong-way driver than catching Ebola. 


Facts about ebola:

  1. Ebola only spreads when people are sick
  2.  Symptoms usually appear 8-10 days after infection
  3. After 21 days, if an exposed person does not develop symptoms, they will not become sick with Ebola.
  4. Unlike the flu and measles, Ebola does not spread through the air.
  5. Ebola isn't airborne, and it doesn't spread by water.
  6. Body fluids have to come in contact with your eyes, nose, mouth or broken skin, like a cut, wound or abrasion
  7. Body fluids include saliva, mucus, vomit, feces, sweat, tears, breast milk, urine, and semen.
  8. There's no evidence of that. But some bats and monkeys are considered carriers
  9. As far as body fluids with ebola virus on surfaces, "When it dries, it dies"

Tampa, Florida (AP) -- For the first time in four years some Citizens insurance customers will see their rates reduced. The board for Citizens Property Insurance voted Wednesday to lower rates by an average of 3.2 percent for single family homeowners in 2015. The state-created insurer says that nearly 70 percent of those with homeowner policies should see some sort of decrease. Citizens, which has more than 928,000 policyholders, has raised its rates for four straight years. The decision to lower rates, which still must be approved by state regulators, is coming during an election year. But company officials maintain several factors have diminished the need for rate hikes next year. The state has not been hit with a hurricane since 2005. Some customers, including those who live near the coast, will still pay more in the coming year.

Temple Terrace, Florida -- In a 6 p.m. press conference Wednesday, the Temple Terrace Police Department identified a suspect in the murder case of Felecia Williams.

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A soldier's letter that's been bouncing around in the mail since World War II is about to make one final trip with the United State Postal Service. "I have been in the Post Office 20 years and I have never seen anything like this happen," Muskegon Postmaster William Rowe said of the old letter his mail carrier attempted to deliver to 313 Washington Street last fall. The house has been vacant for a while and when the mail carrier looked a little closer, he discovered a nearly 70-year-old letter dated June 29, 1945. The fragile letter was written by Sgt. Myron Cook and sent from an Army base in Europe. It was mailed to New York and then presumably Muskegon but it doesn't appear to have been opened. "It appears there is a letter inside but we do not know what the letter is," said Rowe. There is a six cent stamp on the front and bar code proof that someone put the letter back into the mail stream in Minneapolis last year. "We do not know who did it or why they did it. That is a mystery," Rowe said. "Whoever did that wrote to the residents with a new zip code, because they did not have zip codes back in 1945." Now the letter is back in Muskegon, likely for a second time, so many years after it was originally sent.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office is currently seeking the public's help in finding 20-year-old Tonea Nicola Crawford. A warrant is out for her arrest on the charges of robbery with a weapon and grand theft. Crawford is known to live in the Tampa area. Her last known address is 2008 E. Comanche Avenue, Tampa. In August of 2013 at the Bealls store located at 4175 Highway 98 North in Lakeland, Crawford was involved in a retail theft involving another suspect who ran out of the Bealls store with hundreds of dollars of stolen clothing. When a loss prevention officer from Bealls chased one of the suspects around a waiting car and then temporarily detained her, Crawford, who had jumped into the back seat of the vehicle, got back out of the waiting car and sprayed the loss prevention officer with some kind of chemical agent, allowing the second suspect to get into the car with Crawford and flee the area. Crawford was also involved when three suspects stole hundreds of dollars of clothing from the Belk store located at 1400 Town Center Drive in Lakeland on April 26, 2014. Crawford and the two other suspects are believed to be involved as a group in organized retail theft activity throughout the central Florida area. If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Tonea Nicola Crawford, you are urged to contact local law enforcement or call Detective Kevin Matheny at the Polk County Sheriff's Office at 863-298-6200 or toll free at 1-800-226-0344. ANYONE WITH INFORMATION WHO WANTS TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS AND BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CASH REWARD IS ASKED TO CALL 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) or LOG ONTO ANONYMITY IS GUARANTEED!

If you need health insurance with a lower premium this may be of help to you....

The tax for those who don’t comply starts at $95 per adult in 2014 (or 1 percent of annual household income, whichever is greater) and grows to $695 by 2016 and beyond (or 2.5 percent of income). The penalty will be assessed on your federal tax return.

But the law contains many exemptions. For instance, you won’t have to pay a tax penalty if:
•you’re a member of a federally recognized Native American tribe,
•you’re incarcerated,
•you’re in the country illegally,
•you belong to a religion that opposes accepting benefits from a health insurance policy,
•you cannot find "affordable" coverage, meaning the cost of your premium would be more than 8 percent of household income, or
•your household income is low enough that you’re not required to file a federal tax return

A few basics for other readers: Medicare is the subsidized national health system for people 65 and over.

Medicare Part A, known as the "hospital insurance" portion, helps pay for inpatient hospital stays, inpatient skilled nursing facility stays (after a hospital stay), some home health care and hospice care.

Medicare Part B, known as the "medical insurance" portion, helps pay for outpatient medical care such as doctor visits, lab tests and durable medical equipment.

Even though Part A offers limited coverage, it still will meet Obamacare’s insurance requirement, says Jack Cheevers of the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

So technically, you’ll be fine.  However, you may want to get supplemental insurance, though it isn't mandatory.
