  1. Impasse…..Same place the teachers and staff negotiations are headed. Rocky needs to wake up and realize that a HUGE bloc of his votes come from the same veteran teachers and staff that he is screwing over.

  2. We’re looking at this “state bird” thing all wrong.

    Make a fist with your hand, fingers toward you. Now extend your longest finger. That bird is visible millions of times a day on our state’s roadways. It often appears when other drivers are inconsiderate, rude, or oblivious to others around them.

    Along with making that the state bird, we can change the state motto, too. “Florida — Visitors welcome as long as the state bird approves!”

  3. Well as a Florida native and the son of crackers, I say the Florida Scrub Jay should be the state bird. Its native to the whole state. The Flamingos is not. Only down there where all the Yankees and Cubans are. You know where. And the Mockingbird already has a few dtates. So they can go.

  4. The firefighters do deserve better pay. Perhaps they should thank Mayor Dailey and Reese Goad for their abominable leadership, fiscal irresponsibility in favor of special interests. The city manager should be fired and Dailey resign and take Curtis with you.

  5. Come on MAYOR DAILEY, Fix it with the Firefighters, it has been WAY PAST DUE. They deserve better Pay.

    The Democratic Party wanting to cancel their 2024 presidential primary in favor of President Joe Biden is just ANOTHER WAY to RIG the Election.
