Fifty-two is the magic number for recreational fishing for red snapper in Florida waters for 2014. WUWF’s Dave Dunwoody reports that’s how many days the species can be sought.

Food is so plentiful that getting enough to eat seems assured. But because of the low quality of the diets and food so many people consume, most of us are deficient in at least some critical vitamins and minerals.

Citing what he sees as a need to restore the separation of powers in city government, Pensacola City Councilman Charles Bare is proposing a number of changes to the five-year-old city charter.

He refers back to the City of Hialeah’s charter – the basis for Pensacola’s.
