Yet living in Orlando in particular, has so much beauty that it is hard to allow the weather to … [Read more...] about Experiencing Florida

By Shanieka Perrier |Staff Writer| What is so suspicious about iced tea and a bag of skittles? A 17-year-old boy holding only those items and wearing a “hoodie” was shot and killed ion Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida.

I have a problem with Zimmerman never initially being arrested. There was a dead body … [Read more...] about Skittles are suspicious?
