Melissa PersoniusTampa's Honey Trapper

Just before lawyer Campbell got popped midtrial for DUI, turns out this pretty woman showed up at Malio's, bought him drinks and ultimately asked him to drive her car, the allegations went. And the cutie turns out to be a legal assistant with opposing counsel Diaco's firm. And the head DUI cop (Ray Fernandez) is big pals with a lawyer in opposing counsel's firm.

Local Views: A vote for regression, intolerance

I recently moved to Hillsborough County and have spent the better part of the last year bragging to friends and family about how proud I am of my new home.That pride was shattered by the Hillsborough County Commission's rejection last week of a domestic partnership registry. I could not be more ashamed of this community. The four "no" votes were a step backwards — signaling regression, hate and intolerance. History will mark these commissioners' place alongside the bigots and extremists of other eras. The fight is far from over, and in the end we will win. Good and right always do. The four commissioners had their chance and failed. But now we know where they stand and we can move forward.
Kaitlyn Little, Tampa
On the same day that the Hillsborough County Commission was meeting with the principals of the Tampa Bay Rays, a vote to allow county residents a domestic partnership registry was being defeated. The Rays should remind the commission that the Rays is an inclusive organization and that this vote is not in line with those values.Twenty years ago, the NFL informed Ye Mystic Krewe that the NFL would not tolerate having the Super Bowl associated with an organization that was not inclusive. So too should Major League Baseball and the Tampa Bay Rays remind the county that
 there are consequences to its acts as well.

Local Hero Mark Tillery

Tracking down Mark Tillery isn't hard. Monday through Thursday, the retired autoworker can be found volunteering at the Salvation Army St. Petersburg Area Command. He could be in the nonprofit organization's free cafe serving coffee to patrons. Or outside in the Garden of Hope, harvesting vegetables used in the Army's kitchen for its feeding program.

Wasserman Schultz Is Wrong

Florida Congresswoman, and Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told a South Florida crowd the economic embargo on Cuba should remain in place.
It's Time For The U.S. To End Its Senseless Embargo Of Cuba.
The nominee for U.S. Secretary of State, Sen. John Kerry, once held up millions of dollars in funding for secretive U.S. democracy-building programs in Cuba. Defense Secretary hopeful Chuck Hagel has called the U.S. embargo against the communist-run island "nonsensical" and anachronistic. Both men are now poised to occupy two of the most important positions in President Barack Obama's Cabinet, leading observers on both sides of the Florida Straits to say the time could be ripe for a reboot in relations between the longtime Cold War enemies.
Help, end the war on the Cuban people, they are being held hostage by a small group of Right-Wing Extremist in South Florida.
Stop The MCM.

I Hate Tampa Bay

 I am not a big fan of the city of Tampa.  As far as I could tell, the only businesses in Tampa are used car lots, pawn shops, strip clubs, and medical malpractice attorneys.  The baseball stadium sucks.  Ybor City is where the clubs used to be, and it harbored some of the worst music anywhere........Greg Miller the singer of The Whiskey Daredevils, a group of barely talented dead beat no frills rockers.

What A Surprise

Hillsborough Denies Domestic Partnership Registry
Commissioners Victor Crist, Ken Hagan, Al Higginbothom and Sandra Murman voted against the motion.
Commissioners Les Miller, Kevin Beckner and Mark Sharpe voted in favor.
It is evident by the vote today that a majority of my colleagues are out of touch with Hillsborough County voters and remain shackled by the unbendable ideology of their political masters,”....Kevin Beckner
