    Iguanas invade Cape Coral, Florida neighborhood: Reptiles dig seawalls causing safety concernSome residents in Southwest Florida are worried about an iguana invasion in their neighborhood. They say the creatures are digging up holes behind their seawalls -- a major safety concern for some homeowners.

    Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater has decided not to enter the Republican primary for U.S. Senate after briefly considering a late bid. “As much as Carole and I are humbled by your calls, notes and messages to enter the US Senate race and carry our banner into the fight we believe we have a responsibility to finish the job Floridians elected us to do,” Atwater said in a weekend Facebook post. He’s less than 16 months into his four-year term as Florida CFO. Atwater, a North Palm Beach resident, said last week he was mulling a Senate bid after...

    Tax Day Tea Party ^ | 3/30/09 | Eric Odom
    (SNIP) You don’t remember that pre-revolutionary history? I should say you shouldn’t, because it didn’t happen. But flash forward a few hundred years and you’ll find it is happening today in Cape Coral, Florida where city officials canceled a tax day tea party gathering because they “feel too many people could show-up.” That’s right, folks, the God-given, long-held American right to assemble and protest the actions of our government has been canceled due to too much popularity of the protest.

    Freedom Works.org, an advocacy organization that fights for lower taxes, less government and more freedom and is headed by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, has stepped in with an organizer and an insurance policy to save the Cape Coral, Fla., Tea Party. During a Sunday night phone interview with Freedom Works members Mary and Ron Rakovich, the pair told me they will hold the event dubbed "April Fool's Tea Party at the Park," and want to send a message to the city that the people of Cape Coral will be heard. If you are in the area, join them...

    Remember this report from our nation’s history?

Organizers expressed sadness over the cancellation, but meekly returned to their homes fearful of upsetting the officers of the Crown. Taxmen breathed a sigh of relief as the tar and feathers were put away not to be used this day. You don’t remember that pre-revolutionary history? I should say you shouldn’t, because it didn’t happen. But flash forward a...
