    The tragedy of it all was immediately clear: A suspected drunk driver, at 3 in the afternoon, swings his Chevy Tahoe into oncoming traffic. "He's going to hit us!" Ellen Collier, 81, told her husband, Edwin, 85, who was driving their 2001 Honda Accord. The strange coincidence took longer to sort out: The Honda's driver, retired Montgomery County District judge Edwin Collier, had presided over thousands of drunken-driving cases, including one in 1998 involving the Tahoe's driver. Collier had spared him jail time, even though the man had been arrested on drinking-and-driving charges twice in three months. "It's just a...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A Palatka man has earned a dubious distinction: Alger Scott has been arrested 101 times. The most recent time came Wednesday when the 54-year-old was charged with selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a school. His rap sheet includes charges of petty theft, drug possession, trespassing, aggravated assault, and armed robbery. Most were misdemeanors. State prison records show he has served stints at local jails and about three years in prison since the late 1990s. Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Art Nichols says communities everywhere deal with habitual offenders like Scott, whom he says take up...

    As Hillary Clinton is being touted as a presidential candidate for the 2008 election we should take the time to reflect on her co-presidency that did so much to humiliate and degrade America. Let us not forget how the mainstream media covered up — and still is — those Clinton White House scandals that severely compromised US security and put at risk the lives of millions of Americans. I am of course alluding to the transfer of sensitive military technology to China. This technology greatly improved the accuracy of Peking’s ICBMs that are now targeting American cities. Being the outrageous...

    A man accused of stealing an off-duty Orange County deputy's car with her son inside had just been released from jail on similar carjacking charges minutes before the crime, Local 6 News has learned.

Police said when Frost's husband ran into the station to pay for gas, Jerome Nez jumped into the couple's white Jeep sport utility vehicle and drove...
