    I have Spectrum Cable TV. And here in Lakeland, Polk County, we have both Central Florida 13, HD channel 1213. And Bay News 9, HD channel 1209. They are both similar, “Weather on the 1s” and “Weather on the 9s.” I check both about evenly. If I’m going to be headed to Orlando for a lunch or party with my Retirement friends, of course I’ll check weather and traffic info on 1213. If going to Tampa area for something, it’ll be 1209. So I like it, getting both. :)

    Just a bunch of Trump haters... counting all their new money thanks to Trump's new tax reform law.

    One guy is going to ban assault rifles and place a tax on bullets.

    Eventually those types will take hold and destroy our constitutional rights.

    A bunch of unknowns at this pt on both sides.
    Pub debate should be more fun watching Putnam defend his departments incompetence vs DeSantis trump like attacks.

    I wonder how this election and the one for US Senate will go.

    The Gov candidates aren't too well known and Nelson is usually unbeatable even in Republican wave years.

    Scott wouldn't have had a chance some years back but he may have a little chance now. Scott only won his 2 elections by like 1% in what were good GOP years in FL.
