Those students included FSU's Andrew May, a senior accounting major from Tampa.

“Free food, just checking it out and here to have some fun,” he cited as his motivation for showing up.

City of Tallahassee

After several deadly shootings in some of the city's poorest neighborhoods, Tallahassee officials and community volunteers began walking those neighborhoods during the summer.  That outreach wrapped up Saturday night.

A lawsuit filed Friday in a Leon County circuit court accuses the Legislature of a massive sleight of hand. As Jim Ash reports, environmentalists are charging more than 230 million dollars were siphoned off from Amendment 1 programs for other things.
