They somberly counted up the dead horses, whose charred bodies lined dozens of stalls. The family, who lives up the hill from the ranch, had awakened Tuesday to flames. One firetruck came and told them to leave. “All I could think about was the horses, the horses,...

I grabbed a hoe and after a few failed attempts, got her out. I was afraid to touch her with my hands because of fleas and potential disease. She finally used her teeth to bite the edge of the hoe and I was able to lift...

    In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. -George Orwell Steven Spielberg, the man who had to redesign his stable because it was going to block his neighbors' views of the ocean, he is enough of an elitist to not let his neighbors ruin his grandiose plans; he just dozed the top of his little Sullivan Canyon hill and built the stable where the top of the hill once was. Elitists can work around the will of the people; it's logical in their minds, since they are the will of the people. Now, where...

First take item's size or dimensions and label them and save them, (stove, couch, sink, etc.) as a movable item. 2. Place them on a design sheet, and move them around by mouse movement. 3. Define space between items, and be able to change it later. 4. After you get satisfied with your layout of items, then design walls around those items, and design you home, yard, or whatever you are planning to build, in that order, and be able to make changes...

    Four women, accused of flashing bar patrons at "The Barn," in Sanford, were arrested after attending a "Girls Gone Wild" party on Thursday. Of the over one-thousand attendees, Joyce Lourcey, of Middleburg, Kathryn Giannobile, of Sanford, Christine Goncalves and Migdalia Rodriguez, both of Deltona, were hauled-off in handcuffs for indecent exposure. “Sanford had a strict nudity law and anyone that violated it with any type of flashing would be arrested,” said Cleo Cohen from the Sanford Police Department. Nudity is strictly prohibited in Sanford. "The Barn" owner, Eric Tims, posted signs about the town ordinance, but despite that, the women...
