Steve Stewart: “As a long time resident of Killearn Estates – living less than a mile from the proposed location – I have a heightened interest in the park and I am concerned about the proposed park amenities.

Ron DeSantis is defending former President Donald Trump after Trump was indicted last week by saying that the Department of Justice has been weaponized due to its political bias. “The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society,” DeSantis said. “We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation. Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter?”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made a campaign promise that he will restore the name of Fort Bragg in North Carolina after it was renamed to Fort Liberty.
