Political season starts in earnest with today’s show. We’ll begin our daily scheduled candidate interviews with The Republican Florida House District 50 race. George Collins is challenging the incumbent for this seat. The interview is in our 8am hour.
Before we get there, these stories are in play on today’s show:
A Palm Bay living room is getting lots of attention. Maybe it’s because it’s outside WalMart! Yes, I admit it. I watched the world cup final yesterday and have to admit, as soccer games go, it was an action packed game. But, seriously, was France brought to us by Pepsi? And does the international soccer committee have to ruin the TV viewing and opportunity for the fans?
Apparently dieting now offends the sensibilities of fat women. Well, at least advertising a diet product does.
A local political activist wannabe needs to learn about government and the appropriate venue for his silly little problems. The County Commission can’t tell Palm Bay what to do! The proposed budget in front of the County Commission reduces Brevard’s property tax rate, but a statewide push for a traditionally charity driven organization threatens that budget.
Things are tightening in the Republican nomination for governor. Adam Putnam should not be comfortable at all. In the US Senate, have to love the reaction of WV’s Joe Manchin as he tells Chuck Schumer just what he can do.
Britt Kennerly has taken a look at America’s Apollo program and what going to the moon means to Brevard, even today. Her Florida Today column is well worth your time.
