    TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — One Bradenton man is trying to get rid of the overpopulated lionfish in an unconventional way, by glock-fishing underwater.

FWC spokesperson, Amanda Nalley, said the FWC is aware of the video and the agency encourages people to remove lionfish, but not with firearms.

    The city will study whether to set up sites for drug addicts to shoot up safely with $100,000 approved by the City Council Wednesday. The controversial program known as supervised injection facilities gives addicts a place to use drugs under medical supervision to avoid overdoses or spreading HIV and other diseases.

Is Donald Trump just going to just sit and remain quiet? He really needs to respond, and in a big way. In his next few rallys, he needs to bring up Howard Dean and come up with a nick name for him. So many great names Donald could come up with. Got any suggestions? "ClownFace Howard Dean"?

Although the project’s meaning remains unclear, it hasn’t stopped community members and internet commentators from speculating about the artist’s motivation.

    (Original title: Hillary Clinton would make a sober, smart and pragmatic president. Donald Trump would be a catastrophe.) American voters have a clear choice on Nov. 8. We can elect an experienced, thoughtful and deeply knowledgeable public servant or a thin-skinned demagogue who is unqualified and unsuited to be president. Donald J. Trump, a billionaire businessman and television personality, is the latter. He has never held elected office and has shown himself temperamentally unfit to do so. He has run a divisive, belligerent, dishonest campaign, repeatedly aligning himself with racists, strongmen and thugs while maligning or dismissing large segments of...

Ladye Hobson told Fox 25 that her husband often jokes about making squirrel dumplings, and the little boy, Brylan, thought he would bring home dinner for the family. It’s probably safe to...
