Yes, this morning I am thoroughly disgusted with SP emails not coming through. Then when I wrote an email to send to SP they wouldn't let it go through, sending me to all these other FAQ's. What is a person to do? So I just checked with... Read more

All that water the citrus and strawberry growers used the past week to protect their crops from the freeze in central Florida led to the development of a number of sinkholes. And yes, they are a little too close to suit me. We have two in ou... Read more
