    When Michelle Hammack,a teacher at the Little Temples Childcare facility in Arlington, Fla., smelled smoke and the children were napping, she rushed out of her classroom to investigate.

Her boss, however, wasn't impressed. On that same day, the owner of the childcare facility Olga Rozhaov fired Hammack. Rozhakov defended her decision to the media. "I fired her only because she left her room," she told the...

    ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. -- A modified marquee in Atlantic Beach has been drawing some attention. "Hoohaa" replaced a word in the title of a play after a driver complained about finding the previous wording offensive. The marquis for Atlantic Theaters advertises a number of plays including, the Masquerade Ball, Band Jam, and now The Hoohaa Monologues. Some said hoohaa is a strange word and that its definition depends on its context, while others said it sounds like a country band. However, it's not a band at all. In fact, most people know hoohah by a different name -- vagina. "We...

    His final Sunday morning sermon in Jacksonville will be this weekend. He's been pastor of First Baptist Church for 23 years. First Baptist is one of the ten largest churches out of 39,00 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention. His hottest controversy came during a pastors conference in which he made comments about Mohammed. For months after the story spread around the world he wouldn't comment except for an official statement read at church. But during our interview he made new statements on the issue. We'll broadcast those in our 11:00 story Sunday night. His sermons always have ended with...

Jeb Bush on Monday to launch a criminal probe into events that put Terri Schiavo in the hospital with severe brain damage 15 years ago. Justice Coalition founder Ted Hires also asked the state Department of Children & Families to take Schiavo into protective custody and Florida's attorney general to initiate a civil rights investigation into her treatment and efforts by her husband to have the feeding tube that keeps her alive removed. . . . Her parents said they filed the divorce proceedings because of Michael Schiavo's "total...

    JACKSONVILLE, FL -- A Christmas tree that decorated the lobby in new federal courthouse downtown has been removed. Late last week the Government Services Administration, the agency that maintains the building, acted on direction from the Chief Judge to pull the tree. A lighted snowman, reindeer and sleigh has replaced the tree. A spokesperson for the GSA could not give specifics on why the tree was taken down. Gary Mote who handles Public Affairs from the Southeast Sunbelt Region says the decision was to "...make sure no one is offended." The artificial tree that was decorated with non religious ornaments...

    Another American has been beheaded in Iraq. While we hope it is the last, our fear is that many more may follow. Each round of beheadings brings with it condemnations from Muslim groups, both in America and abroad. Islam does not teach wanton violence, no matter what the level of grievance. Legitimate grievances do not justify the illegitimate acts of beheading innocent souls and planting bombs in schools. An insidious Naziesque propaganda is under way, perpetuating a myth that the American-Muslim community has not condemned acts of terror and brutality. Facts suggest otherwise. All major American-Muslim groups condemned Sept. 11,...

We all enjoyed the wait, visiting with each other while trying to keep the sun off our head. What was the final count, by the way?
