"Authorities say the driver drifted off the right shoulder and hit an embankment, causing the truck to roll over. The driver has been hospitalized with minor injuries.
The truck was carrying 60 to 70 crates of lobster, and traffic was backed up for hours as crews worked to clean up the crustaceans.
Police say the lobster cannot be eaten because of how long it was unrefrigerated."So I guess the accident could actually be termed a lobster roll.
'The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases bankrupting the state. That is not going to work,' he said.
[DeSantis] called Gillum, the Tallahassee major, 'an articulate spokesman for those far-left views' while also referring to him as a 'charismatic candidate.'
"I realize the word is intended as a compliment, but it's being used to connote a lot more than the ability to express one's thoughts clearly. It's being used to say more, even, than "here's a black person who speaks standard English without a trace of Ebonics."
Articulate is really a shorthand way of describing a black person who isn't too black -- or, rather, who comports with white America's notion of how a black person should come across."
“… It’s how white folks talk about black men who are successful,” [Michael] Steele said on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press.”Steele is also black, and also successful. He can see exactly what DeSantis is doing.
Steele also criticized DeSantis for calling Gillum “articulate.”
“I heard that he’s ‘articulate,’ that ‘he performs well,’ … he’s checking off those boxes. Why do you have to describe him that way?” he said. "Doesn’t happen to a lot of white candidates," he added, echoing host Chuck Todd's comment.
1936 (light tower added to the 1907 fog signal building; station established 1872). Active: focal plane 52 ft (16 m); flash every 10 s, alternating red and white. 45 ft (13.5 m) square cylindrical steel-clad wood tower with lantern and gallery (1936) mounted on a 2-story steel-clad brick fog signal building (1907); 250 mm lens (1932). Entire building painted red. The 6th order Fresnel lens (1907) is on display at the Holland Museum. The second (1907) lighthouse was relocated in 1937 as the Calumet Harbor Breakwater South End Light in Indiana. The building was painted a buff color for the first four decades of its life; it acquired its trademark red in 1956. In 2005, the lighthouse was offered for transfer under NHLPA; the Holland Harbor Lighthouse Historical Commission was the only applicant. In February 2007 title to the lighthouse was transferred to the Commission. By 2012 the lighthouse had faded to Big Pink; it was repainted for free by Lamar Construction using donated paint and supplies. Located on the south pier at the harbor entrance in Macatawa, west of Holland.Big Red Lighthouse Web page from Holland, Michigan's Web site.

"Analysis of the simulations indicates that the Pacific features a significant El Nino-like warm SST anomaly 5-10 months after northern and tropical eruptions, with the Nino3 index peaks at the winter of next year.
Compared with northern eruptions, the warm SST anomaly is mainly confined to the eastern Pacific with a stronger intensity following tropical eruptions. Following southern eruptions, the Pacific shows a weaker warming anomaly over the eastern Pacific and the time at which the Nino3 index reaches its peak is about 4 months earlier than that after northern and tropical eruptions."
"2011. Active; focal plane about 11 m (36 ft); green light, characteristic unknown. Approx. 8 m (26 ft) round tower shaped like a baseball bat. Next to the tower are sculptures of a baseball and a baseball glove."Well, that pretty much gives it away. Here's a very short article about it:

"2001 (station established 1868). Active; focal plane 28 m (92 ft); white flash every 10 s. Approx. 15 m (50 ft) round tower, painted white."There are foundations on the island for both of the previous (1868, 1962) lighthouse towers. And some mining equipment. And that's about it. But the lighthouse is famous enough to have been on a stamp.

"The talented pair split their time between three countries - their marital home in England's Essex, Mark's place in Los Angeles, and South Africa, where Michelle filmed the bulk of her BBC military drama.I hope it keeps working for them.
Luckily Michelle is able to join Mark in Los Angeles between filming series of her TV show. 'She comes out and spends time in LA which she loves, so we just make it work,' he said.
