    Lyme Regis ^ | February 7th, 2020 | Francesca Evans
    The replica of a wooden Phoenician ship, which visited Lyme Regis last year, has completed its 6,000 mile voyage across the Atlantic. The Phoenicia visited Lyme Regis last July before setting out on its voyage from the old port of Carthage, Tunisia, in September. It called in at Cadiz (Spain), Essaouira (Morocco), Tenerife (Canary Islands) and Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) before arriving in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the Coral Ridge Yacht Club on Thursday, February 4... The ship's trans-Atlantic voyage was part of the Phoenicians Before Columbus Expedition, designed, with the help of the US-based Phoenician International Research Center, to...

    A Florida security guard is accused of threatening to kill President Trump in retaliation for a US airstrike that killed Iran’s top military general last Friday. Chauncy Lump, 26, from the Fort Lauderdale area, faces federal charges of threatening to kill the president and remained jailed Thursday with bond set at $100,000, according to court documents filed Wednesday by the Secret Service. Agent Lucas White wrote that shortly after Trump announced last week that a US airstrike had killed Qassem Soleimani in Iraq in retaliation for plotting numerous terrorist attacks, Lump, under the name “BlackMan vs. America,” began livestreaming a...

    (CNN) -- A man in Florida has been sneaking around his neighborhood tampering with electric scooters parked on the streets, police say. The Fort Lauderdale Police Department posted a surveillance video Tuesday showing 59-year-old Randall Williams walking up to an electrical scooter on the street, slapping a white sticker on its QR code, and cutting its brake lines, essentially rendering it impossible to use. Police say that more than 140 scooters have been disabled and vandalized in a similar way in the southeast part of Fort Lauderdale since April 5. Officers had already homed in on Williams as a possible...

    "It’s important to stress that this doesn’t paint Florida as out of the woods yet," said Kathryn Prociv, a meteorologist for NBC News. "Florida is still very much in the red zone," she added. Dorian will continue westward through the weekend but is then forecast to turn northward as it approaches the east coast of Florida early next week, the center said. It will bring "risks of life-threatening storm surge, devastating hurricane-force winds, heavy rainfall and flooding along its path." As of the NHC's 8 a.m. ET advisory Saturday, the storm was located 280 miles east of the northwestern Bahamas...

    VIDEO Live Stream of the Screech To Impeach protest in Miami, Florida at 1:00 PM in Miami, Florida on June 15, 2019. The Fort Lauderdale Screech to Impeach protest in downtown Fort Lauderdale on June 14 turned out to be pretty much a dud with no more than a dozen protestors showing up. All they did was screech at cars driving by. Hopefully the Miami Screech To Impeach protest will prove more interesting. It is supposed to last 4 hours but don't be surprised if it fizzles out long before then.

    VIDEO A live stream of the June 14 Impeachment protest at the Federal Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida starting at 5 PM. Most of these impeachment rallies will take place the next day so this protest will give viewers a heads up on what is going to happen. Of course, Nancy Pelosi knows such an impeachment based on nothing would completely boomerang on the Democrats so these protests are just shouts in the dark but they could be FUnnie!

    The legal battle over a trashed mansion between NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen and lawyer-turned-stand-up-comic Lindsay Glazer Woloshin isn't over yet. Earlier this month, Pippen amended his lawsuit to accuse an unexpected person of vandalizing his Fort Lauderdale, Fla., mansion: Glazer Woloshin's 5-year-old daughter. The amended lawsuit says the girl defaced his property with crayons and markers and that her vandalizing ways show Glazer Woloshin and Jacob Woloshin failed as parents. It also added negligence and vicarious liability to the original accusations of conversion and breach of lease.

    It is not a crime for an illegal immigrant to use fake federal documents to obtain a legitimate state license, according to a remarkable ruling issued this week by an Obama-appointed judge in south Florida. The defendant, 38-year-old Rubman Ardon Chinchilla, was among 20 people arrested several months ago in a scheme that used bogus immigration documents in driver’s license applications. The man who masterminded the operation, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Cuba, has been charged with fraud. Chinchilla, a Honduran national, has lived illegally in the U.S. for decades, according to a local newspaper report, and has three American-born...

According to the arrest report, Tremblay told the flight attendant, "There's a bomb in it" and began laughing. The attendant alerted the pilot, who ordered the plane to be evacuated, while the terminal was forced to close as a Broward Sheriff's Office...

    The image above has been credited as being the firearm used in the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting on 6 January, 2017.  While the image is a little fuzzy, it appears to be a Walther PPS. You can see the distinctive trigger guard magazine release, the slot above the trigger guard and back of the rail for the serial number, the single finger groove and the shape of the extended magazine.   On the rear heal of the grip is a triangular smooth area that should have the Walther banner in it, and grip is slightly relieved and smooth in a...
